I have heard rumors that Air France will return to DFW. Has anybody heard anything about this?

As great as it would be, I would highly doubt it.

Supposedly, Air France did pretty badly when the market conditions were better. Now that the market conditions are worse, I'd highly doubt that they will come back, especially so soon after they quit the service.

I've heard this as well from an AF source in the U.S.
He said back in Summer 2003.

The route was not doing terrible. AF needed the aircraft for Africa flights after SN and SR had cut back.

I flew AF out of D/FW on just their 9th day of service. And it was loaded with business travellers. I spoke to the flight attendant who said they were extremely happy with the way the route was doing, and with the bookings they had on the business front into the fall.

I heard that the real reason they quit flying the route was to mobilize aircraft for Africa and Asia. Now I don't know if they are coming back to D/FW, but I wont be surprised if they did. Hope they do!
I've flown on 9V-SPK.
