DL has a 763 with 200+ seats, AF is running 2 772s at about 600 seats daily, not including the days where one (or both) are 77w, bringing the total seats up to possibly almost 800 seats, just on AF alone.
Add in the possible connections on the 3 daily AMS flights, and it certainly becomes a daunting task to break into that market for a new comer.
Paris is a huge Summer market. CDG-BOS was the last operating AF 744, IIRC. This Summer in particular there's the WWC which draws a huge number of American fans too.
Last USA departure of an AF 744. Last overall was Mexico City, I think. Definitely miss seeing them on the line at E but towards they end they were definitely some challenging aircraft to work. One of the aircraft that comes up a lot when the old timers are swapping "fish stories"
