United At CDG

Thu Nov 06, 2003 10:51 am

I took a look at the November timetable for United and counted 3 systemwide flights to Paris. As I recall, they used to have multiple flights/day from each of their hubs, except Denver.

I was at CDG two weeks ago and saw almost 10 DL planes on the ground and only one UA 767. How come it seems to be working for other airlines, but not United? Should United continue to serve this market? Should they have continuing service to other destinations? ...as Delta does to MUB?

United flies nonstop daily from IAD, ORD, and SFO.

Before 09/11 and UA's Chapter 11, United flew twice daily from IAD to CDG and once daily from SFO, ORD, and LAX.

Delta doesn't have 10 planes at CDG at any one time. They fly twice a day from JFK, one or maybe two a day from ATL, one from CVG, and one flight that operates CDG-BOM. That would make 6 maximum. Delta has no other flights to CDG other than from JFK, ATL, CDG, and BOM. It does have a broad alliance with Air France, so it would have a bigger presence at CDG.

American Airlines also has a large presence at CDG, with two daily flights to JFK, one daily to ORD, MIA, and DFW, and seasonal to BOS.

The 767's of UA come from SFO or ORD , IAD gets a 777. I remember when I flew ORD-LAX in an Int'l 777 March 01,that 777 left LAX for CDG.But as Continental pointed out,no more non-stop from LAX.

Just a small note, but UA's LAX-CDG was canceled before 11 September 2001. In fact, IIRC, the last flight was 10 September 2001.
