Air France (Paris) plans to announce a new round of cuts after failing to reach a new agreement with its pilots according to the Wall Street Journal. The airline was seeking to find cost savings of $190 million annually for the next three years but the pilots refused to fly more hours for the same pay.

However if the carrier follows through on further deeper cuts the type could be retired sooner. Boeing 747-428 F-GITF (msn 25602) departs from the Paris (CDG) hub.
