AF's Aircraft On These Routes

Wed Jul 28, 2004 6:57 pm

Hi!

After looking for AF's flights from DUS to JFK for December 20th to January 8th, I have had to find out that there apparently was an aircraft change on this route. Up until a few days ago two of the flights were supposed to be served by the 777-300ER. Now they have been downgraded to a 777-200 and an A330-200.
Is this the case or not?
On the other hand, I also saw that on the way back from CDG to DUS flight #1606 is scheduled to be an A318.
Does anybody have any knowledge if this is true or not?

Thanks a lot!

That's correct Ushermittwoch - have checked the Sabre GDS and they are as follows:
DUS-CDG will be A320/321
CDG-JFK will be A330-200/777-200

on the way back it will be the same CDG-JFK, and AF1606 is an A318.
Not had a chance to fly on the 318 yet - enjoy it!
Debate is what you put on de hook when you want to catch de fish.

Thanks for the confirmation on that one!

I guess I'll be flying via Beantown then instead. I prefer the two abreast seating at the window and since I'll be arriving at my final destination MSN at the same time that way, I can get there more comfortable and with a few extra Fréquence Plus miles!

But that A318 will make my day!

Brilliant observation!

Anyway, if I get a ride on an Airbus I am happy.
And if it's a new model for me, all the better!
