Future Of AF 747 Pax Operations

Sat Dec 15, 2012 12:53 pm

Currently AF are down to 7 B744's in a 2-class configuration. With 8 A380's (and another 4 on order) and 37 B77W's (and another 4 on order) I was just curious to know how long AF intends to keep their B744's in pax service.

I plan to go to Rio de Janeiro in a few months and noticed that they have switched that destination back to B744. Is it going to be B744 all year around?

Also, are all 7 B744's operated out of CDG?


Cheers,
Bjorn

Right now they operate from CDG to MRU, MEX, YUL, GIG and SDQ as well as ORY-RUN as mentioned. Next summer they are scheduled for CDG to BOS, MEX, MIA, YUL and GIG.

Most likely until the A380's and B77W's on order are delivered.
