Air France mulling Airbus A380 link between London, Paris
Air France may link Paris and London with a giant A380 airliner next month to train flight attendants before taking delivery of its fourth superjumbo in late August, the airline said Monday.
"This is being looked into. Nothing has been confirmed," a spokesman told AFP, confirming a report by the Figaro newspaper.
The paper said the A380 would shuttle between Paris Charles de Gaulle and London Heathrow from June 12.
Air France has ordered 12 superjumbos which can seat more than 530 passengers each.
It took delivery of its first A380 in late October, followed by two more in early February and mid-April. They are currently linking Paris to New York and Johannesburg.
An A380 will also fly between Paris and Tokyo "within months", a company spokesman said.
