As per 12JUN11 GDS timetable and inventory display, DELTA starting 29OCT11 will replace AIRFRANCE on Chicago – Paris CDG service, which also marks the interruption of AIRFRANCE’s own operation to/from Chicago for the first time in nearly 60 consecutive years (AF started Chicago service in October 1953). For the moment this is only in effect for Winter 2011/12 season only.
DELTA will operate Boeing 767 aircraft instead of AIRFRANCE A330-200 on this route. Operational frequency and schedule remains unchanged. Currently AIRFRANCE operating flight (AF664/667) is still available for reservation but will be closed soon.
