More bad news at Air France-KLM. Both carriers have announced route cuts and are reassessing aircraft deliveries. The group will cut Kuala Lumpur, and reduce frequencies and capacity to Rio de Janeiro, Moscow and Tokyo. The group said “speed is of the essence” as it announced that it is to accelerate the implementation of its Perform 2020 savings plan. KLM has agreed some new labour contracts and is in talks over others, while Air France has started legal proceedings against its pilots, claiming a lack of progress over an agreement to make cost savings.
