Tonight while on a DL flight from ATL to MCI the gate agent kept calling out the boarding announcement as DL flight XXXX and AF flight XXXX and even on the arrival and departure screens it was listed as an AF flight? Is this just a code share leg extension? if so why the ATL to MCI leg?

AF has their code on many DL segments... they connect w/ AF flights from CDG providing AF the ability to sell CDG to MCI under their code.... just one of dozens of destinations that can be added to their route map through codesharing.... DL does the same thing on many AF flights beyond CDG. and other airlines do the same type of thing w/ their partners.

Quoting L1329II (Reply 3): Interesting... I wouldnt have thought twice about CDG to ATL but onto MCI had me puzzled.
Why? almost every flight from ATL/JFK to any other major city in the U.S. are a codeshare flight with AF or AZ. Go to europe and almost every flight out of their international hubs have either a DL/NW/CO codeshare on em.
