That airline that’s also a rooftop bar – Joon (by Air France) is commencing service. At the same time, the airline is to add extra routes to its network
Inside Europe, Joon will add the following destinations and frequencies:
- Istanbul (Turkey): 7 flights a week
- Naples (Italy): 14 flights a week
- Oslo (Norway): 18 flights a week
- Rome (Italy): 49 flights a week
These services will be operated by Joon from 25th March 2018, with a lead-in price of €39 each way including taxes.
These routes will fly with a mixture of A320 (174 seats) and A321 aircraft (212 seats). There will be a two-class service aboard the plane too.
Joon will also be adding three more long haul services to its network (as you can see above).
- Cairo (Egypt): 7 flights a week
- Cape Town (South Africa): 3 flights a week Tehran (Iran): 3 flights a week
Lead in prices start at €149 to Cairo, €279 to Cape Town and €149 to Tehran.
These flights will utilise Airbus A340 aircraft with touch screen InFlight Entertainment. In terms of catering, Joon’s Business customers will enjoy a free catering offer, from starter to dessert, including snacks. In Premium Economy and Economy class, one or even two meals will be offered on the longest flights. Of course, there will an offering of paid options too.
It seems Air France is trying to make a serious go of Joon… however, Danny Lee on Twitter noted something quite important:
Hmmmm AF-KLM’s new low-cost (and sometimes) long-haul airline:
– not as cheap as LCCs
– mixing short-haul
– Old, inefficient aircraft
– pilot pay same as mainline AF-KLM
– Joon cabin crew get 40% pay cut to mainline staff
So: low-cost, eh? https://t.co/lwiA36VEXD

It seems Joon has a lot of convincing it’s a viable airline. As well as a roof-top bar.
