Airline says it may cut long-haul if pilots resist change
Air France says it will have to cut 10% of its long-haul network by 2017 if its pilots do not accept cost-cutting changes to their employment conditions.
The airline wants to make 80% of its long-haul routes profitable, up from only 50% at the moment.
But if pilots resist the process, cuts to the network could involve at least 10 aircraft. It is not clear how many jobs would be affected by such a reduction.
A source close to the airline told Reuters that, inspired by Lufthansa, the company may also operate a small number of long-haul routes on a low-cost basis.
In June, Air France revealed that it would end four loss-making routes including Kuala Lumpur and three destinations in Europe, as well as cut capacity on routes to Japan, Brazil and Russia.
