F-GLZJ was an Airbus A340 version 300 which was delivered to Air France in September 1997. It flew at Air France until July 2019 and by now it has been scrapped. It seems that for most of its career it flew between Paris and different sites in Africa.

Air France belongs to the same airline alliance, Skyteam, than for instance Alitalia or Aeroflot. Therefore it's not surprising to see an Air France machine in Skyteam's livery, like here. F-GKXS is an Airbus A320 version 200 delivered in March 2009.

One of Air France's former supersonic Concorde planes has been kept at the Paris CDG airport as a monument. It was a very remarkable piece of technology, considering it was designed and made in the 1960s.

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines / Air France KLM / KLM Cityhopper / KLM Asia

fi-klm-phbxa-helsinki-030316-full.jpg

KLM Royal Dutch had a financial collapse and would have gone bankrupt, but was saved by being taken over by Air France. Today the company is called KLM Air France or - as often seen - the other way round, Air France KLM. KLM Cityhopper is technically another company specialising in KLM's short haul routes.

PH-BXA is a KLM Royal Dutch Boeing B737-800 taken in service in 1999. It is taped in the historic colours which KLM used in the 1960s.

Joon

se-joon-fgkxh-arlanda-040419-full.jpg

Joon was an effort to approach the young people and create an airline for only the young with cheap prices. The planes came from Air France and Joon was all the time a subsidiary of Air France. It had a network which fairly optimistically wanted to cover most of the prime cities of Europe. However, Joon failed. Joon ceased all operations on 26th of June 2019 and the planes and other operations will be fused back to Air France. This was a total failure.

Although Joon ceased all operations already almost half a year earlier, in November 2019 many planes could be seen in Joon's colours. This F-GTAM is an Airbus A321 version 200 delivered to Air France in 2003. It flew for Joon from March 2018 to June 2019 when all of Joon's operations were ceased and all aircraft were returned to Air France.
