AirFrance 777-300 On Its Way To MEX Right Now?

Sun Nov 06, 2005 11:54 pm

Hi guys.
Just wondering if anybody can confirm that the equipment used today on AF flight 438 CDG-MEX is a 777-300.

AF.com Says 77W since a couple of Weeks ago and on today's arrival departures, but several other tracking pages say 772.

Please can anybody confirm? Don't wanna drive to the airport to see a 772.

Hey Juan,

make a check at the CDG airport website: www.adp.fr
Because I'm very kind, I've done that already for you *g
Here we go with the facts available on adp.fr:
Numero de Vol AF438
Depart 06/11/2005 13:30
Aeroport de depart CDG 2 TERMINAL E
Jour d'arrivee 06/11/2005 18:35

Type d'avion BOEING 777-300ER
Telephone 0.820.820.820
Escales
Etat du vol Le vol a decolle a 14:23

So it is a 77W today. For the ext few days adp shows 772ERs.

Happy Spotting!!!

GreetZ,
Jan

There was some sort of Irregular Operation going on with Air France yesterday as they had their regular 777 parked yesterday afternoon (at around 4pm), so it probably means some sort of cancellation on Nov 5th. Maybe they sent in the 773 to pick up stranded passengers or the likes?
