Jack Trout
We decided we had to position the country, not the airline. Get traffic to Belgium. Do what KLM did for Amsterdam.feedback

Frédéric Gagey - Air France

We continue to play a position; we hope there will be a result. We are for the competition. We think we can open the markets to new actors if they apply the same rules.feedback

Manel Vrijenhoek

Worldwide, we had seven passengers whom we had to inform that there was no point in us taking them to the U.S.. There is still some lack of clarity about whom this ban affects.feedback

Pierre Francois-Riolacci - Air France-KLM

We expect a similar decline for the fourth quarter as we saw in the third quarter.feedback

Yan Derocles

The project is a bit disappointing. Boost is a bit of a surprise but it's hard to see how it will really position itself and be profitable.feedback

Jean-Marc Janaillac - Air France-KLM

Joint ventures allow us to work in these countries and to have a kind of global system of airlines without having to consolidate by buying other companies.feedback

Jean-Marc Janaillac - Air France-KLM

The target will be how much cash flow do we need to buy planes to allow us to grow. We'll discuss with the different unions to know how we will achieve these targets.feedback

Jean-Marc Janaillac - Air France-KLM

We are not in the United States. We are still different countries. We have rules within Europe where a non–European carrier cannot have the majority of European carriers. That means that consolidation is going to be difficult.feedback

Jean-Marc Janaillac - Air France-KLM

The goal is to restore confidence and trust where it's lacking, and secondly to clarify some strategic options.feedback

Jean-Marc Janaillac - Air France-KLM

In terms of competitiveness we are lagging behind our competitors and our cost structure is still too high. We still have work to do.feedback

Jean-Marc Janaillac - Air France-KLM

We can see the effect on Air France already, we will feel it even more in the coming months.feedback

Simone Menne

We don't have any visibility on how people are booking, and we're losing group bookings from Asia and the United States due to travel warnings.feedback

Carsten Spohr - Deutsche Lufthansa

We expect the high pricing pressure to continue... This is why we will push on our efficiency increases even more consistently.feedback

Pierre Francois-Riolacci - Air France-KLM

We are seeing pressure for July and August. He expected unit revenues - a measure of pricing - to decline in those months.feedback

Boet Kreiken - KLM Cityhopper

KLM believes that sustainable biofuel is important for the airline industry.feedback

Pierre Francois-Riolacci - Air France-KLM

It badly hit our customers, especially in the Japanese market. With the November 13 attacks, we had a second hit. We estimate that the second hit impact was about 1.20 million euros that impacted us somewhere in November/ December… But we believe this impact today has nearly 100 percent faded away.feedback

Pierre Francois-Riolacci - Air France-KLM

I think that people sometimes overestimate the fuel price and the effect in 2015, which was a bit more than 400 million euros, because there was hedging and also there was the euro-dollar rate that of course upset quite a lot of this price decrease. So it surely helped us but at the same time, we had downward pressure on the revenues, with unit revenues being down, excluding forex, significantly, from one year to the other.feedback

Pierre Francois-Riolacci - Air France-KLM

We had a lower demand in Asian markets but driven by Japan. We cannot notice anything in a slowdown in 2015 coming from China, we have not noticed any significant downward impact coming from China. Japanese tourists are not coming to Europe anymore like they were before.feedback

Pierre Francois-Riolacci - Air France-KLM

These attacks are not good news for anyone… [but] people are not going to stop living, not going to stop traveling.feedback

Pierre Francois-Riolacci - Air France-KLM

A year ago we were selling 80 percent of our tickets [from] Japan in Japan, now only 50 percent.feedback

Carsten Spohr - Deutsche Lufthansa

With the recent market developments, the importance of efficiency gains is prioritised.feedback

Mohammed Shaikhibrahim - Euronews

According to the information available, the main hypothesis is that the crash was caused by a technical failure on the plane. But the answer will be found in the examination of the black boxes.feedback

Manuel Valls

The challenge is Air France's survival in the end. And the government which as shareholder has a 17 percent stake is playing a full role in supporting the management and in supporting the really necessary reforms within Air France. Several weeks remain before we will be forced to implement plan B from January 2016 which foresees numerous departures at Air France, not compulsory layoffs but numerous departures.feedback

Alexandre de Juniac - Air France-KLM

Accident or incident statistics are very closely followed by everyone in the air transport industry, and they don't show that. In other words, low-cost carriers are no less safe, and it cannot be claimed that they are not as safe. What happened to Germanwings is a very, very special case, really exceptional in my opinion, and should not be linked in any way to the character of the airline.feedback

Antoine Juillard - Euronews

Many people have been wondering after this tragedy if low-cost flights are not in fact less safe than the traditional carriers. What is your opinion?feedback

Jorge Amaral - Air Force

In legal terms, we can't confirm that it is the Air France plane.feedback

Serge Pawlak

Obviously, there's no list. The foreign office said to call Air France to get the names on the list, but we're still waiting. They gave us a confirmation, but only by stepping-up our personal inquiry, so it's really really tough.feedback

Andrea Cavola

The number of the workers is totally insufficient and has to be looked at again. The criteria used has to be revised; if things don't change, this will be the first in a long series of strikes.feedback

Marina Catena

It was a really great thing for me. Because I am the first female Italian soldier to receive this French decoration. France is, in a way, my chosen country, the country with the language that I like most, where I spent time as an Erasmus student in Strasbourg; the country where I worked as a stewardess for Air France, the first non-French stewardess employed by Air France. It's the country which has taught me how to live somewhat without borders. So, it's a country to which I am profoundly grateful and getting this medal filled me with joy.feedback

Pierre-Henri Gourgeon

It's what happened last year. It's our goal.feedback

Klaus Walher - Deutsche Lufthansa

As far as we can see right now, about a quarter of flights leaving Frankfurt have been affected. The union said the action would end at 13H (CET) and we hope we'll be able to take all passengers who planned a trip today to their destination.feedback

Alexandre de Juniac - Air France-KLM

At the moment, Air France is in the middle of big changes, with very limited resources, and that means we have to be extremely careful.feedback

Patrick Henry-Haye - Air France

Crews are at risk when they stay a night in those countries because they don't have any protection there. Air France gives one mask per flight attendant and those masks, when you start using them can only be used for five hours so when you stay for 24-48 hours if something happens they have nothing to protect themselves.feedback

Anne Devineaux

The investigation highlighted numerous gaps in terms of the planes maintenance – for the Air France Concorde and also for the Continental DC10. Have we learned lessons from the crash?feedback

Tommaso Schioppa

A national flagship airline is something unique and that plays a key role in how a country identifies itself. But, by allowing it to join up with the world's biggest airline group it is a vote of confidence.feedback

Fabrice Cueille

We believe the plan will be ineffective simply because it's not backed up by a viable industrial project. Essentially, it does not respond credibly to the economic, commercial and strategic hole we find ourselves in.feedback

Jean-Cyril Spinetta

The debts of Air France-KLM, which were 2.5 billion euros at the end of 2008, jumped to 6.5 billion by the end of 2011. If we are not quickly able to halt this trajectory, it'll saddle the group with serious future debt.feedback

Giovanni Magi

The future of the airline depends on the application of this restructuring plan. Only a few years ago it was a world beater in terms of turnover – now it finds itself swamped by economic and financial turbulence.feedback

Jean-Cyril Spinetta

With regard to the connections between Milan and major European cities, we're going to maintain a very full network and by revising the schedules, we can considerably improve the service to the Italian business community flying from Milan.feedback

Jean-Cyril Spinetta

Alitalia is not ready to, as we say in French, to 'monter dans le train', to 'go in the train', not the aircraft, at the first stage. May be it will 'go in the train' in the second stage and we will have, of course, to decide this all together, Alitalia, and Air France-KLM.feedback

Frédéric Gagey - Air France

We are in a period of weak demand. We have felt the full brunt of the cyclicality of air transport.feedback

Rocco Sabelli - Alitalia

There are problems to be resolved, and there will be plenty more to resolve.feedback

Jean-Cyril Spinetta

We're very strictly respecting the Italian nature of Alitalia in all the agreements we've signed. The fact that the fourth largest European airline market – the Italian market – is now in stronger cooperation with the European leader – Air France-KLM – is obviously major, in terms of European consolidation.feedback

Peter Hartman

We needed to take these measures because our debt position and costs per unit were running too high, and because of losses on our domestic and European routes. We do this to avoid getting into trouble later.feedback

Giovanni Magi

Right now, high fuel costs are weighing heavily on airlines, even those like Air France-KLM that have embarked on major restructuring plans. The situation may be improving, but the outlook remains uncertain.feedback

Jean-Cyril Spinetta

There are still losses, but they are smaller losses compared to 2011. And that reflects (the airline's) very good business performance – notably for long haul – and that can be explained by the efforts made by all our workers in these difficult economic times, and their efforts in the very necessary task of gradually getting the Air France-KLM Group back to profitability.feedback

Paolo Ferrero

This is worse than the Air France plan, because there will be more job losses, it will cost more, and it will destroy the company.feedback
