Air France to cut 2,900 jobs and 14 aircraft, order for Dreamliners canceled

Air France (Paris) has announced it will eliminate another 2,900 positions and cut its long-haul fleet by 14 aircraft after a critical board meeting. The long-haul fleet is being reduced from 107 aircraft to only 93. The cuts are coming after management failed to reach a new agreement with its pilots union.

The cut positions include 300 pilots, 900 flight attendants and 1,700 ground staff.

AF will expedite the retirement of its remaining Airbus A340-300s.

The company is also canceling its order for 12 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners.

Angry AF employees attacked company executives as they left the meeting.
