Re: After 68 years, AF stops flying to CCS

Curious: did AF ever serve CCS from either PTP or FDF using a Caribbean fleet plane? Yes, for a long time AF flew PTP-FDF-CCS. Per AF schedule 92/93 - AF flew into CCS with a 737 1x weekly. https://www.routesonline.com/news/38/airlineroute/86259/199293-airfrance-network/ https://live.staticflickr.c...
