AA At Orly?

Sun Jun 27, 1999 2:15 am

Is American still at Orly? I though I read somewhere a while back that they were going over to CDG soon.

Thanks in advance,

At this moment, AA does go to Orly. Earlier this week, in the Boston Globe, there was an article about an American 767-200 BOS-Orly that was delayed 24 hours.

AA will be at Orly until later this year, I think October or November.

A couple of months ago there were discussions to displace all of ORY intercontinental flights to CDG. I have not heard anything since. IJ was quite angry because they were kinda building a hub there, especially since Oneworld has formed with AA and BA's traffic. Some were accusing the government to help AF by impeding IJ development. I do notknow what the final decision is but AF is supposed to move all it's intercontinental flights to CDG anyways in few years from now.

The Paris airports situation is a nightmare - nearly all French domestic flights (the Air Inter network) are from Orly and since virtually all international flights (apart from a few US carriers) are to CDG, if you are flying to anywhere in France other than Paris you have to endure a mind-numbing hour in bad traffic on Paris' answer to London's M25, the "Peripherique". It really sucks...although at the end of one such hellish ride to Orly, I found one of the last Air Inter Caravelles waiting for me, which understandably made things look a lot better.
