AF 747-400 In IAH?

Sat Sep 10, 2005 4:57 pm

I was looking at fboweb.com tonight and saw a planned arrival of a Air France 744 from Mexico this morning at 530 then departing to Paris at 730. Is this a tech stop or something else. Its been awhile since i have seen AF send anything but a 777 to IAH

Air France Cargo flies in 744Fs to IAH. The 772 is still on the passenger schedule until October 30th, then it switches to the 773.

You'll see Saudi 747F (arrive from NY), Atlas 747-200F and China Airline subtitute passenger 340 for 747 sometime too.
