I heard that it was suppose to start first week in May, CDG-DFW with A340 equiptment.

It looks like it: on their website it already appears as AF040 operated with an A340.

E37, I think that is the very last gate on the end of Delta's terminal.

Correct me if I am wrong, but that will make for a pretty good picture from the service road.

p.s. It is great to finally see some international carriers at DFW!

N757tw- you are very close(it is the second to last  Smile) if there isn't anyplane at E38, then seeing AF should be no problem.
Lately, several international carriers have been adding service to DFW. DFW is the only place in the US where you can see a JAL MD-11(which I have seen!) My neighbor is the chairman of the board of directors and he told my dad that DFW has really been trying to lure EVA Airways and Swissair, I hope they are successfull at it. Also, I wouldn't be surprised if LAN Chile and Aerolineas start DFW service soon, as Aerolineas was going to start serving DFW, but they were in trouble financially.

Does anybody know, why the new flight to DFW departs from Terminal 2F in CDG, while all the other flights (there might have one more in 2F - Philadelphia maybe) to the US are handled in 2C?
