Air France Load Check Request

Hi,

I was wondering if someone could please post or PM the loads for AF065 and AF069 (LAX-CDG) on 8/19. I'm planning on buying ZED fares for my family but was curious what the loads looked like first, as I may change departure airport to SFO if they are too tight.

Thanks for your help,
OCBear

Thanks for the quick reply, Wunk. Unfortunately, I don't know how to decipher those codes. Any idea how many open seats and if any standbys are listed?

Sorry for the rookie questions and thanks again for your help.

AF65 seems to be massively open especially in first and business.
AF69 seems to be almost solidly booked in all premium cabins, except for a few open seats in business.

In economy the situation looks very much the same for both flights, still plenty open except the cheapest of booking classes.

Unfortunately, unless someone from the the board is an employee, it will be difficult for us to give us an exact number of available seats as well as any information with regards to standby list.

Sometimes I wonder whether the seat availability is artificially throttled, for instance for premium economy cabin.

I have a hard time believing that W would be sold out as it indicates, to prevent folks querying if the flight are empty or not and pay more $$ for the ticket.

This is pricing and revenue/yield management and not limiting the number of seats to be sold. They may have thought that they could sell X seats at a high price on this exact routing and then finally decided later to reopen some A availability (the lowest fare in PE). Or the cabin was amlmost sold out, hence the high fare for the last seats remaining, and a party of 5 pax cancelled their trip or decided to take another flight and so AF revenue management re-open some availability in A or S.
