Joon's operations to be absorbed into Air France

Billed as an airline exclusively for millennials, Joon from Air France was supposed to offer a new level of service, create a fresh style in the skies and was supposed to offer more of an 'experience' than a flight.  Yet, the dream didn't last and now the end is near for the pretentious carrier according to reports in

It has lasted little over a year and according to the report by Fabrice Gliszczynski the airline is officially coming to an end with the management agreeing with unions on moving across the 600 or so Joon cabin crew into Air France main fleet operations. The rest of Joon's operations will be absorbed into Air France and the Joon brand will slowly disappear. 

Air France issued the following statement to confirm the start of a project to absorb the operations of Joon back into Air France.

Let's get cosy with Cosy Joon

The airline designed for millennials from Air France that's been in operation since December 2017, has introduced something called Cosy Joon, which is especially for families with young kids.

The airline has already carried more than three million customers in Europe and worldwide from its  Paris-Charles de Gaulle base has come up with this brand new service that uses a few rows of modular seats aboard its Airbus A340 long-haul jets that can transform into a bed or play area for small children.

In some rows of four seats on the Joon Airbus A340, two adjacent seats can now be transformed into a play area or a cosy bed for up to two children. This innovative way of making spaces involves a member of Joon's cabin crew converting the seat headrest where the child is sitting into an additional seat base which fills the space between the rows of seats.  That way, it gives the little folk an area of approximately 105 x 76 cm on two adjacent seats. An overlay mattress and a seat belt extension is also provided by the crew.

Joon's one millionth passenger!

It seems like only last week we were talking about the launch of Joon an airline set up by Air France to be a carrier specifically designed for millennials. It was, however, a little longer than a week ago,  in fact as far back as 1st December 2017 that the airline first started in a blaze of hype and flashing lights. Now, the carrier is celebrating its one-millionth customer on board!

This lucky customer, was travelling on the flight from Rome to Paris-Charles de Gaulle, and were greeted on arrival in Paris by Jean-Michel Mathieu, Joon’s CEO, together with the crew and was presented with:

- A return flight for two people to the medium-haul destination of their choice;
- A pair of Joon “Le Coq Sportif” sneakers, the emblem of our crews’ uniform;
- As well as other surprises!

Air France joint venture with Vietnam Airlines but will it lead to price fixing

Air France and Vietnam Airlines have joined together for a new venture that builds on the codeshare deal that already exists between the two carriers. The deal, due to start from November depending on approval from authorities, will see the two airlines co-ordinating their flight schedules to offer customers better connecting flights.

This latest announcement is part of a rapid and dramatic programme of global expansion from Air France, especially in the long-haul markets. The French giant has launched a new 'youth' 'trendy' airline, Joon, based only to the so-called millennials, which will be flying some routes to the US in cooperation with Delta and Virgin Atlantic.

Looking beyond the hype of Joon!

With much fanfare and attention Air France launches its sister airline on social media this week,  months are we broke the story.  Joon, the newest addition to the Air France family has been born!

Joon is aimed at being an airline for the millennials, which instantly puts me out of the target audience and market and therefore, I can only assume they don't want me or my generation spending our disposable incomes with them. Targeting a specific demographic may have its advantages, but excluding all others doesn't sound like a recipe for success.  However, I'll carry on and delve deeper beyond the 'Joon' hype - sorry I mean promotional literature, read on -
