Until 5 years ago, the daily flight was operating CDG-GRU-GIG. Then the two Brazilian destinations were separated, and CDG-GRU remained daily while CDG-GIG was operated 3 x weekly.
The frequency on CDG-GIG became daily with an A332 two years ago.
This summer both CDG-GRU and CDG-GIG are operated nonstop by a B777-200ER.
Next winter, CDG-GRU will remain operated by the B772, so the offer in seats will be superior on the CDG-GIG flight. This flight will also change its schedule and become a night flight from CDG (just like the CDG-GRU) :
CDG 11:15 PM ---> GIG 06:50 AM next day. AF442 - B744 - DAILY -
GIG 03:55 PM ---> CDG 06:30 AM next day. AF441 - B744 - DAILY -
