Air France-KLM Group (Air France) (KLM) (Paris and Amsterdam) reported its pre-tax 2014 earnings fell to 1.59 billion euros ($1.81 billion) from 1.86 billion euros ($2.1 billion) for the previous year. As a result, the group is delaying deliveries of aircraft for both Air France and KLM. Air France will also maintain its Airbus A380 fleet at 10 aircraft and delay taking delivery of the last two.
