Re: Orlando Aviation Thread - 2019

If DL were to add a CDG flight, most likely they would time it to leave between 3pm and 6pm to get to CDG for connections in the morning. About that time though, AS/4 is packed with Virgin and BA coming in. NTM, LATAM is using 4 again and so is EI, so the 80's/90's are getting quite full.
