You forgot on the long haul network:
Montréal 1 -> 2 flights a day this summer. And this frequency will be extended on a year round basis next fall.
By the way, a direct flight Montréal-Lyon would be nice (and needed).

AF Cabin Crew,

Did you say on an earlier post, that AF would be increasing flights to twice daily on SFO-CDG? Or that it would be upgraded to 747-400 on a year-round basis?

SFO will become a twice daily flight but when that is the question ???
they are going to concentrate into building the actual flights and then start Dallas and Detroit. For the 747-400 flying year round we have no information. All I know is that the 747-200 shouldn't go there anymore as there are only 4 left in the l'Espace version and they are going to convert every 747-200 for the leisure market.
