On Wednesday this week, I flew Delta from CDG-ATL and picked up a brand new timetable on the plane. It must be the newest because I had the one before it talking about new MXP service from ATL on the cover and this was the one on the plane. They keep current ones on the planes. Anyway, I was curious about the JFK-BOM flights. As you know, they now go via CDG. When I looked at the planes that fly the routes though, I was surprised. It said that JFK-CDG was a 763 and that CDG-BOM, BOM-CDG, and CDG-JFK were all MD-11s. I saw the flight at the gate in CDG on Wednesday though, it was about to depart for BOM, and it was a 763. My first question is, why would it be a 763 on only 1 out of 4 legs? Is that just an error? If it isn't, what happens to the 763 after it goes to CDG and how does another MD-11 get ready to fly if one doesn't stay in CDG, but instead heads back to JFK but does not fly back to CDG? My other question is, what planes really fly the route now, because I saw a 763, but the timetable says MD-11?

JFK-CDG-BOM is a 763 until June 30. It becomes an M11 from July 1. The M11 will route ATL-JFK-CDG-BOM.

106/107 JFK-FRA-BOM became 118/119 JFK-CDG-BOM from April

106/107 still runs JFK-FRA on a 763

M.Seles_Fan, I don't think it exists anymore.

DL switched the flight from FRA to CDG to take advantage of DL's partnership with AF and its hub at CDG.
