What Does Air France Fly To HKG With?

Sat Sep 29, 2001 3:23 pm

Hey guys!

I was at CLK last night doing my 'Plane Spotting'.

I think I saw an Air France B 747-400 at CLK. Does anyone know whether or not Air France has switched back from a B 777-200ER to a B 747-400 on the HKG-CDG route?

Also, is that a B 747-400 Combi?

Its news to me if they have changed back to the 744, however if they have pulled them out of the states then its possible we will see the 744 back in Hong Kong.

Yes Some of AF cargo flights to Hong Kong were routed via Karachi, I used to do ramp work for them till July so you must've seen a 747-200F for sure Smile

You sure???

I don't think I have seen the word CARGO. It says Air France and I am sure it is a B 747-400.

So where does AF's B 744s fly to?

I remember taking them on the LAX-CDG route, but now it's done by 777-200

Hi guys,
right now, it seems to me that we are operating 744's to anywhere that makes sense...I checked today's departures with the big boss and they included Dakar, for instance, so I guess it is possible someone has seen one of them out of its ''normal hunt field''. Did you know we are starting the daily Havana with them too?
