Air France Will Auction Seats On A380 First Flights
What's the reason to buy and fly one of the giant Airbus A380s? Well, profit of course; more seats jammed into one flight means more paying passengers. Alas, this won't be the case when Air France becomes the third airline to trot out their A380.
Just like Singapore Airlines before them, Air France is using their first flightfrom Paris-CDG to New York-JFK on November 21to mainly get publicity by auctioning off 380 of the 538 seats on the flight and the return for charity. We can expect the rest of those seats to probably be press and airline officials.
To get your mitts on a coveted seat and perhaps test out their policy on mile high club membership, like did one of Singapore Airlines' first passengers, then stay tuned for the October auction and expanded Air France A380 service in 2010 to Dubai, Johannesburg and Tokyo in addition to New York.
