AF Load Request - AF1980/27JUN

Sat Jun 19, 2010 8:32 am

Hello,

Could anybody please help me with the passenger load of AF1980/27JUN (A380 CDG-LHR)?

I'd like to nonrev on this flight, but want to avoid getting a middle seat somewhere... purpose of this trip is flying the A380 so I'd like to 'secure' a window seat. The airline I work for only has an agreement in Y so I can't book C/CL if the loads would be better in this cabin.

As this is the second AF departure of the day to LHR, it is defeeding quite a big part of the AF longhaul arrival bank, so a lot of passengers will be checked-in already a long time in advance (also reducing the chances for window seats).

Thanks in advance!

Why would you fly nonrev and take the risk of offload or middle seat, when the return fare is available from 80 Euro on these A380 flights, and by contacting AF they even offer seat assignment aforehand. Non-rev can't be much cheaper on this route then the regular fares, isn't it?

I can't turn this into a weekend trip, so I'd fly BRU-CDG-LHR-BRU.

The flight looks okay. There's already 4 other nonrevs listed and I'm sure more will list as the day gets closer. Have a back-up plan in place.

Ia Orana !

I would go on the 28th. On the 27th the flight is oversold but looks OK after the no-shows...

Thanks to both of you for your help! I'll probably delay the trip with a few weeks as the flight is too full...
