AF1660 CDG-BEG 12.20-14.35 319/320
AF1661 BEG-CDG 15.25-17.55 319/320

surely not. Quasi-monopoly (code-share with Air Serbia). No reason to have Joon. Joon is mostly on routes with intense competition with other carriers with trash fares (either legacy like TK or LCC)

Definitely a market with some decent potentials if you also look at the ever increasing number of services operated by LH/LX/OS. All-in-all, great to have the AF option back after more than 5/6 years now.

I took this route in 2010 after the fantastic Guca festival, so I also thought it could be Jooned I was in C which was only one row, the flight was overbooked and I volunteered at check-in, got 150 EUR or so, then eventually they had space for me, got premium economy (2nd row) with an empty middle seat, therefore business service with the terrible white boxes. And I got to keep the volunteering voucher. The game was much more fun back then
