It seems that for political & strategic reasons, Air France
headquarters decided that Air Inter (now known as Air France Europe,
at least until April 1st...) would recentrate its activities on the
national shuttles rather than on the european flights, so they decided
that the A330 were not needed any more, and I've read somewhere that
they have ordered A319 and A321 in place of the A330.
