Air France Eliminates Dedicate Service in Africa

Long-time airline nerds may remember that Air France launched a service for oil workers called Dedicate, where they flew A319s outfitted with 28 biz class seats and just 54 coach seats to oil-related destinations in Africa (they used to fly to other, non-African oil destinations).

Beginning April 16th, Air France will eliminate the last of these services (to Malabo, Equitorial Guinea; and N’djamena, Chad) and switch them to mainline aircraft. Some destinations served by Dedicate were eliminated but some, such as the two noted above, have just been moved to larger planes.
