I know that Continental flight 10 arrived on time this morning, but flight 11 (same aircraft) left almost 3 hours late, so there is something going on with weather etc as there were no mechanicals on the flight
In consequence of strong snow falls on the North of France, having involved the prolonged closing of the Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports, the program of the flights was strongly disturbed
Saturday January 4th on the afternoon.
Air France intends to ensure gradually the return to the normal of its exploitation on Sunday, January 5th.
We invite you to consult our "Flight Information" section before leaving.

Flying Belgian >
Those snow falls are not exceptional... For Belgium.
Please, keep in mind that the last time such a 'severe' (I know, it is not *that* severe) snow fall occurred in Paris was 3 years ago. And, like this one, it just lasted for one day.
But of course, one would expect Aeroport de Paris to have the same snow fighting capabilities as Amsterdam... It would be as expecting MIA to be prepared for a snow storm...
Antoine - by the way, I flew in the snow today. Fun
