The Air France Ticket Baggages are being used by a company to get passengers to a plane that’s scheduled to land in France, the airline’s chief executive says.
In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Air France CEO Pierre Bregier said the company bought about 300 air tickets last year, but the airlines use them for “a very specific purpose” and “they’re not just there to serve passengers, but also to be used as a way to get them to other countries.”
Air France’s new Airbus A350 jet is scheduled to arrive in France on April 23, 2018.
It has a new seating capacity of 1,550, and has an initial capacity of 7,300.
The new seats have no baggage space, which is an advantage for the airline.
Bregiers comments on the matter come after the airline lost a court case in France last year over whether it could continue to operate after its airline ticket purchases in 2018 were not approved.
Bregiers’ comments come a week after France announced that the country will launch a program to allow people who bought air tickets to go straight to the airport for their flights without the need for any baggage.
Air France was fined by the Paris court in May 2018 for failing to properly disclose the full cost of a ticket to its customers, which included the cost of the airfare.
It agreed to pay the fine and the costs incurred by the court.
The company has been criticized for selling tickets that are expensive but which do not have any baggage space.
Britches said the airline had done a “fantastic job” of covering those costs, but that it would continue to “offer the cheapest possible seats to our customers.”
Bregier also said the Air France deal with a company called Airivivie would cost about $100 million.
It’s unclear how much Airivie is asking for.
