It is trying to cut debt by €2 billion by end of 2014
Air France-KLM is negotiating with Airbus about postponing deliveries of its next A380s. It already operates eight A380s but wants to postpone an order of four more by several months as it slashes spending and tries to cut debt by €2 billion by the end of 2014.
“Discussions are still in progress with Airbus to define new dates regarding deliveries of the next A380s still on order,” Air France-KLM said in a statement.
The airline has agreed with manufacturers to delay deliveries of three Airbus A320s and one Boeing 777-300.
