If you count BEY still as part of Europe, there is a daily B77W to be had on that route. Other than that, there is the occasional widebody service on CDG-NCE on busy weekends.

The only one I can think of is Paris/Orly (ORY) - Ajaccio (AJA) during peak summer season on Thu/Fri/Sat/Sun using 744 and 743.

It's not - Lebanon is in Asia, not Europe.

I doubt AF has anymore widebody flights in Europe unless there's a special occasion which warrants it. Thus I wonder, will there be any special equipment upgrades for the upcoming France-Portugal game in Munich? I could imagine AF putting at least one 772 on CDG-MUC just for that game.

I don't think so, LTU932.AF won't add flights for this day.AF isn't that kind of airline that adds capacity for special accasions.I think AF won't use widebody a/c for France-Portugal game

So I guess then the max they could go is an A321 then? That route is scheduled with aircraft such as the 735, A319s and A318s on CDG-MUC (at least that's what I saw when I was browsing AF.com a few hours ago).

You can sometimes find the 747 on the Paris-Corsica route in summer ex ORY.

When I was in TLS in March 2005, AF operated a TLS-ORY service with 747-200.

Add the ERJ-145 to that list.
Exceptions confirm the rule.
