Delta Using 777 From ATL-CDG?

Mon Mar 05, 2001 4:51 am

Can anyone confirm that Delta is using 777's from ATL-CDG? On delta.com web site, it says 777, but on their reservation system, it says 767-300?

Can somebody confirm this one way or the other?

DL operates 2 daily 777's to CDG from ATL, AF operates a daily 744 to ATL from CDG. I don't know where you're getting the 763. Are you sure you're not checking the CVG flight?

Doesn't AF also operate a 777 flight from CDG to ATL? I hadn't heard about a AF744 flight.

Delta's Web Site shows three 777 flights tomorrow, two Delta 777 flights--FL 144, FL 22 and an AF Codeshare flight--FL 8251.

Maybe the 763 flights you are seeing is when Delta is pulling its 777s from service to change the seats in the economy section to 3-3-3 instead of 2-5-2.

Flights 22 and 144 are Delta operated.

Both on Triple Sevens.

Flight 8251 is Air France operated, also on a Triple.

Actually, it is a 777. I've seen it. And Deltamatic says so as well...

Air France used to have two daily flights to ATL; one with an A343 and the other with a 777. Their A343 flight was replaced with a Delta 777 flight. So...

Delta has 2xdaily 777 flights ATL-CDG.
Air France has a 1xdaily 777 flight ATL-CDG, until this summer when it is replaced with a 744.

I checked AF's schedule, and they don't have a flight listed to ATL in March. They only had two daily DL 777's. However, in April, AF flies a 744 to ATL. The two DL 777's remain.

I just checked the schedule on Delta.com and it showed AF as having a daily 777 flight from ATL-CDG that leaves ATL at 9:55 pm.

I know for a fact that DL operates 2 daily 777 flights to Paris as well as 2 777 flights to London. I just flew ATL-LGW and back last week on DL 777's. As we were in the busines elite lounge waiting for our flight, the 6PM Paris flight was boarded and departed from the gate right in front of the window of the lounge. It was N864DA, which is the airplane painted for the 2002 Olympics.

Oddly enough, that was the same airplane which flew us back from LGW to ATL a week later.
