Ia Orana all !
Pilots are french, from main line AF Paris and have temporary base in the French West Indies
The Cabin crew are mainly from Martinique and Guadeloupe and are based there. There are temporary bases as well for Paris based cabin crew if a locally based cabin attendant is pregnant or long time sickness.

Quoting DeltAirlines (Reply 2): Air France has an A320 doing Caribbean routes. Destinations include Cayenne, Fort-de-France, Miami, and Pointe-à-Pitre.
In addition to the French points mentioned, they also stop in Port au Prince, Haiti, with 5th freedom rights. AF has been operating those routes for decades. Before the A320 they used the 727 and 737. I think they may also have used the Caravelle on those routes at one time.

Is this seasonal or an odd arrival time at SXM? I spent a week in SXM staying at Maho beach and never saw an AF A320, just the daily A340. Not complaining about the 340, just wondering about the 320. Of course I wasn't at the beach the whole time.........
Give me a mile of road and I can take you a mile. Give me a mile of runway and I can show you the world.

Someone correct me, but I think the route has been operated by Air France since the early 1960s. Air France is one of the longest serving airlines at Miami, although they did not add Miami-Paris until around 1988-89.

Yeah this topic does come up every so often... it's nothing like it used to be. A.Netter's use to go nuts some years back when they would see IB 319's, MP 738's then 320's along with the AF 320 at MIA. They were all like what? when? why? is this MIA or MAD? lol
