Air France has revealed on the GDS that it will be reducing its flights to YUL-Montreal for the Winter 09-10 season due to lower than anticipated demand. Originally, it was supposed to be a triple daily service but that has now been reduced to 19 times per week i.e. daily B 772ER + daily A 343 + 5 weekly A 332. AF too announced further details with regards to the deployment of its A 380s which are as follows:
NRT - frequencies reduced to double daily nonstop flights i.e. daily A 380 + daily B 773ER. The third daily flight will be instead flown nonstop to HND-Tokyo Haneda airport.
IAD - in summer 2010, frequencies will be reduced to double daily instead of triple daily by using an A 380 daily + B 772ER daily.
JNB - frequencies will be reduced from December onwards from double daily to daily A 380 + 3 weekly B 773ER. The A 380 will be used on the night time departure from CDG where as the B 773ER will be used on the day light CDG-JNB service.
