Well, dont know about the prices and such, but easyJet only offer 1 flight a day using the 737-700.
Air France offers 3 Daily flights now all using the CRJ-700, with some weekend services on ERJ145. The AF services are operated on their behalf by Brit Air with a/c in AF colours.
I would go with AF probably as the CR7 isnt exactly a common a/c type at NCL yet, although it is now more prominent with the AF flights

I flew the route on an EMB-145 and I hated it!! Cabin was very very cramped with config of 2-1. We were late for a connection at CDG and the cabin crew were extremely unhelpful and rude!!! We did get a meal...well we got a snack...it was a sandwhich but it was very nice. It was certainly a different experience from the typical flights on 737's etc... but not something I would consider doing again as I was very claustraphobic.

Unlike NCL, I actually liked the EM4 (have flown it a few times, normally MAN-Scotland), especially its business-plane-like cabin. I did not, unlike NCL, find it at all claustraphobic. I guess this goes to show that you must experience it yourself to decided.

I would say around October/November time. I've just been to NCL this morning, and saw the AF CRJ-700 land. What a beautiful aircraft that was to see gliding down to land, even in the shit weather. Absolutely beautiful to see.

Quoting Varig_dc10 (Thread starter): The trouble is, Easyjets cheapest price for three people is about £150, while Air France is about £330.
I guess this is not per person but for the three of you, right?
If yes, then I'd say £110 per person sounds like a normal price range for AF on a flight of that length... a flight from FRA to CDG usually costs something around €120 plus taxes, around €180 in total - which equals around £125.
Yes, there are better offers on some occasions, I've seen €80-€100 at some points, but with taxes you'd still end up around €140-€160...
I don't think you'll find something much lower than what you've got right now.
