Looked on a time table that Braniff did serve Paris, France during a few months in the late 70s or early 80s.
Does anyone can give more info : which airport was linked, which aircraft was used, which US cities were served, and did Braniff hired fench cabin crews?
Thanks You !!!

Braniff started non-stop service from Boston to Paris, FRA, AMS and BRU on June 1, 1979. The flights operated with 747s, flying two flights a week to each city. The standby/budget RT coach fare from BOS to Paris was $353.
On June 1, 1980 the BOS- Paris and BOS- BRU flights went 3x week. On June 7, 1981 the BOS to BRU and BOS to FRA flights were suspended. Not sure when BOS to Paris ended.

Braniff served Paris through ORY airport, not CDG. While most of the time it was done with a 747-100 or -200 and later the 747SP, occasionally a DC-8-62 would be substituted for a day or two when the 74's were down for maintenance or whatever.
