Howdy from the land of the frozen.
I've recently booked a friend on Continental from Newark to CDG in May.
Right now, they are running a 772, 752, and 762 on the route. Surely they won't keep three frequencies after they leave Sky Team? The May schedule shows a 764, 752, and 762.
So does anybody care to hazard a guess as to what flights will actually be operated in May and June, and on what equipment?
I'm hoping the flight is back to a 777, but my luck, my friend will be stuck on a 757 across the 'Pond!! Which would be fine with me, but not for them!

Quoting AA737-823 (Reply 4): ....on smaller 752 aircraft that they wouldn't be using if they had a spare 767 to use.
They have been flying 1 767-200 and 1 757-200 on EWR-MAD the last couple of Summers, Summer '09 is no different it's scheduled for two daily (757, 767-200).
As for EWR-CDG your right they recently changed it to 2 757s and 1 767-400, CO's decision to defer the two 777-200ERs for '09 means they have to juggle a couple of routes to be able to launch Shanghai in March.
