If this news is true, then it will dismiss all the previous theory about the suggested one stop service via a point in the Middle East and confirm the reduction of the frequency into STN in order to free up some flying time for the 2 A343s so that they can serve ORY as well.
Surprised that the frequency is doubled (earlier on D7 was only granted 4 weekly slots [2 weekly flights] into ORY).
The launch date on the St. Valentine's Day is in line with the rumours, which have been emerging eversince.

Well i am surprised too about the frequencies'number (4 instead of 2 orginally foreseen) but not so surprised about thé aircraft as D7 does want to compete MH with a non stop flight . D7 A333 cannot fly nonstop loaded with 400 passengers according to D7 seating maps.
