Over the coming months, DL will be flying from both JFK and BOS to CDG, using their own planes. BOS service begins March 26. JFK service begins June 1.

Delta 48
BOS-CDG
6:40 pm - 7:55 am
Boeing 757-200

Delta 49
CDG-BOS
11:10 am - 1:25 pm
Boeing 757-200

Delta 184
JFK-CDG
5:40 pm - 7:35 am
Boeing 767-300

Delta 185
CDG-JFK
1:00 pm - 3:40 pm
Boeing 767-300

Nice to see DL planes back to flying JFK-CDG. BOS is interesting to me. This summer, DL will serve AMS, LHR, and now, CDG from BOS. I wonder if DL will start to rebuild some of the domestic side of the BOS focus city?

Sorry, BOS-CDG on a 752 when SkyTeam passengers have the option of flying AF? Is DL going after the really low yield passengers on this route? There must be a better place to deploy a 752 without superior competition, especialy if this is just a Summer route. I can't help but wonder if a Summer BOS-LIS wouldn't do better.

There is no competition on the route. For BOS-CDG there is effectively one airline with 2 flights with differently configured aircraft flying iit.

Depending on the times of the two flights, the DL 757 could be offering better connections through CDG to parts of the AF network.

They wouldn't be launching it if they didn't expect to make money. There is most likely extra capacity needed. AF does not have the right-sized metal to fill the excess. The 757 is perfect. Now they they have full ATI, i'm sure the numbers have already been crunched between DL and AF. I'm pretty sure they are privy to far more information than anyone on here...

American Airlines has a daily 757. Ironically, it has the best business product on the route, at least seat-wise.

For a second I thought they have been flying this route for a while. Altho, I believe it was AF providing their equipment of 777s and 747s, correct? Given that, why wouldn't DL operate this with a 777 if not a 747 as well? Was AF not filling their own equipment?

It would be neat to see them run PIT-BOS, but I believe that would saturate the market with US and B6 on that route. Do they serve PHL from BOS?

Interesting to see Delta expanding internationally at BOS. I would have thought they would introduce a somewhat later flight. The AF flight leaves 5:30pm and DL's at 6:40pm - that's too close in my opinion.

AA is a summer-only service, and AF's seat isn't really all that different from AA's.

I wonder if this means that AF will drop one of its two flights? If so, that would be quite the loss of capacity. And I wonder if this will finally be the end of AA's BOS-CDG? We always hear rumours about that one...

It is staying thanks to British Airways, not JetBlue.

Because this flight is more about giving business travellers more options rather than adding a lot of seats into the market.

If it's during the main travel time that is ideal for connections at CDG, it is the best option. Plus, with schedule padding and the 757's lower max speed, the 70-minute difference at BOS grows into 115 minutes upon arrival at CDG.

Besides, it could be worse. Just look at the JFK-CDG flight, which is scheduled to depart a mere 20 minutes before the next AF flight. Shades of AA/BA on JFK-LHR   .

Delta is not adding competition. Delta is simply adding capacity. Delta already flies BOS-CDG in joint venture with Air France. Thing aren't going to get any "tougher" for AA on this route. It's actually going to get a hell of lot easier now that it has a JBA with British Airways.

And for JFK, is it an additional flight or will AF drop a flight ?

I agree. This route seems to have always been a problem for AA and this will get worse with skyteam 'building a fortress' on this route

Is AF going to stick with the 744 on BOS-CDG, or 'downgrade' to a 777? Perhaps the addition of the DL 757 will allow AF to take that 747 and put it elsewhere? In other words, AF 744 = AF 777 + DL 757.

I can't recall the source, but, I thought I read somewhere that AA wasn't bringing back the BOS-CDG service in 2011. I'd love to see AF bring the 777-300 to BOS next summer, it's an aircraft lacking fron the Logan scene.

Air France doesn't fly the 744 into BOS anymore, they fly the A343 regularly and the A332 seasonally.

All of you need to keep in mind that DL does not compete with AF on these routes... they are all JV. But as a long term DeltaManiac medallion flyer, it will interesting to see how the DL metal can compete with the AF metal in terms of upgrades. Obviously, DL will not be offering the equivalent of AF's premium economy product any time soon.

AF drops the second flight even during the summer. So it is one DL and one AF flights. In fact, they are bookable on delta.com.

Per delta.com - the AF flight is on B744-400.

Earning and redeeming miles. It provides greater flexibility to redeem OneWorld miles. Imagine you are flying BUD-BOS, and until the direct AA flight kicks in next summer, transfer in London would have been the only option. Now if you have BA miles you could redeem them on flights between Boston and Paris thus transfer via Paris gives you more options.

You are speaking out of turn, sir   That will in fact be here in 2011. My prediction is the entire international fleet will be complete by year's end of 2011. A 757 has already been retrofitted but I have no idea what the tail number is.
