Will AF Return To Cvg?

Sun Sep 09, 2001 1:10 am

Air France discontinued service to CVG due to the Comair strike. Well, the strike is over and they are still not back. They do codeshare with DL on CVG-CDG, but that's about it. Do they plan to return?

From what I've heard, this route wasn't very profitable.

But I'm not 100% sure, this is just what I heard.

Schedules show AF returning to CVG on March 31st, 2002 with an A340. I tend to disagree about CVG being unprofitable- it went from a 767 to a 747 in not too long, not to mention AF does have a lucraticve codeshare with Comair in CVG and now that they are back in business for the most part no reason that shouldn't continue.

AF will relaunch Cincinnati-Paris flight from September 30, 2001, by a 767.

Jim, the AF scheds still show only AF8885 on 30 September, and that is a DL-codeshare flight operated by a DL 763ER. However, Lear's information is correct, and an A340 flight does appear on the scheds.
