A couple of months ago there were discussions to displace all of ORY intercontinental flights to CDG. I have not heard anything since. IJ was quite angry because they were kinda building a hub there, especially since Oneworld has formed with AA and BA's traffic. Some were accusing the government to help AF by impeding IJ development. I do notknow what the final decision is but AF is supposed to move all it's intercontinental flights to CDG anyways in few years from now.

The Paris airports situation is a nightmare - nearly all French domestic flights (the Air Inter network) are from Orly and since virtually all international flights (apart from a few US carriers) are to CDG, if you are flying to anywhere in France other than Paris you have to endure a mind-numbing hour in bad traffic on Paris' answer to London's M25, the "Peripherique". It really sucks...although at the end of one such hellish ride to Orly, I found one of the last Air Inter Caravelles waiting for me, which understandably made things look a lot better.
