Air France exchanges two A380s for 3 A359s

Air France has disclosed that due to changing business conditions keeping in line with its core strategic focus, it will be exchanging 2 previously ordered A380 super jumbos for 3 smaller Airbus A350-900s. 

In total, AF will therefore maintain a fleet of 10 A380s and increase its A359 unit count to 24 aircraft. 

It is seriously contemplating launching a new long haul LCC unit based out of CDG airport with a fleet of either A332s or A359s only to better serve high density lower yielding routes especially those in Southeast Asia.
