This isn’t significant news in the grand scheme of things, though Air France just announced they would be operating the Airbus 380 on the Los Angeles to Paris route daily starting May 28, 2012.
The reason I mention this is because Air France is one of the few airlines with good business class award availability from the west coast of the US nonstop to Europe, and a great use of Delta miles. If you’re going to redeem Delta miles for Air France’s (mediocre) business class, you might as well fly on the Airbus 380. I also suspect this will mean even better award availability on the route, which is great news. Right now the only US destinations that Air France serves with the Airbus 380 are New York and Washington, so it’s nice to see it on one of the longer flights.
Air France will operate the Airbus 380 on the following flight:
Air France 65 Los Angeles to Paris departing at 3:50PM and arriving at 11:20AM
Air France 66 Paris to Los Angeles departing at 10:30AM and arriving at 1:05PM
