    Saves money on crew though not on A350s, maybe just use old 777s awhile? 35% of AF longhaul routes make a loss! Lets hope they still provide good wine and hot rolls in Economy!

    Airlines always had a hard time handling two hubs at the same time. See LH, SR and BA for reference.

    Please support your supposition with some data.

    I see Lufthansa being successful in Frankfurt, Munich and Zurich. Air France-KLM seems to be successful in Paris CDG and Amsterdam.
    And this does not take into account the US airlines with multiple hubs.

    The main failure I see as “Open Skies” which does not seem to be developing outdide Paris Orly and New York.

    A hub can work anywhere and LH has four it says are successful. IAG has three, 4 if you include Barcelona and Ryanair develops mini hubs whenever it has local market. They only become difficult if they take customers from major hubs and since many are already at capacity thats unlikely though AF may find its subsidary takes traffic from mainline AF?
