I think AF is also looking to start services to Madras/Chennai this Winter. Great loads on the Delhi and Mumbai routes.

On 02 December, AF 322/321 will go from the 763 to the 777.

Actually ORY-LCY and ORY-BGY are services transferred from CDG. Only one daily flight from CDG to LCY will remain.
I surprises me that there is not enough demand for transfer connections to LCY via AF's international hub. Traffic from ORY will most likely be O&D based or sourced by French domestic traffic.

I think BRS is a ERJ145 while ABZ will be an ERJ135, but I might be wrong. Strange that they keep 1 daily CDG - LCY....
