I'm flying AF277 from NRT-CDG on the 31st December. The online timetable lists the flying time as 14h30m. AF offer four flights on that route on that day with the following schedule:
Tokyo Narita JP (NRT) - Paris Ch. de Gaulle FR (CDG)
31 December 2006
AF275 NRT 1250 CDG 1725 772 12h35m
AF271 NRT 1105 CDG 1545 773 12h40m
AF279 NRT 0935 CDG 1420 332 12h45m
AF277 NRT 2155 CDG 0425 +1 77W 14h30m
The other three flights are around 1h50m faster. My flight is a B777-300ER (77W) so why so slow?
The inbound legs are listed as follows:
Paris Ch. de Gaulle FR (CDG) - Tokyo Narita JP (NRT)
30 December 2006
AF278 CDG 2315 NRT 1900 +1 77W 11h45m
AF280 CDG 1805 NRT 1400 +1 773 11h55m
AF276 CDG 1315 NRT 0915 +1 772 12h00m
AF272 CDG 1030 NRT 0650 +1 332 12h20m
Here the inbound B777-300ER (77W) is the fastest.
All flights are listed as non-stop.
Also, as far as I know AF only have ER models so what's the difference between a 773 and a 77W?
