The 2017 marketing creation by AirFrance to create some sort of rich millennials pseudo low cost but not airline – JOON, comes to an inevitable end this evening.
The airline was really a ploy by AF-KLM to undermine the crews and unions at AirFrance who had been in non-stop industrial disputes for years. Following the end of the disastrous De Juniac regime at the airline, Ben Smith cane over from Canada to run the Group.
Like almost everyone else he couldn’t understand what JOON was really about, saw no place for it and at the same time negotiated away all of the industrial disputes.
JOON was ordered closed. And today is the day. The liveries will be removed and the aircraft rolled back into AirFrance.
