Paris may be explained by a lack in O+D demand. It is indeed super easy to take the THALYS from Cologne to Paris (but what an uncomfortable train, after one ride, I promised myself to never repeat that). AF´s flights to Paris were weirdly timed, initially they had two ATRs a day maximum, that later changed to a single daily Embraer 190. Not competitive at all. For both connecting traffic and Point to Point one would need at least two daily flights, better three, so the product just wasn´t very competitive at all. Apparently, there wasn´t enough demand for connecting travel via CDG either, which seems a bit strange to me as it would never occur to me to travel to Paris by train and catch a flight from there, similar to going to Brussels by train, which is quite annoying when you want to get to the airport.
