    Airlineroute.Net:
    AIRFRANCE has announced that from the launch of Summer 2012 season, it’ll be cancelling its Daily Paris CDG – Newark service. In its Daily GDS news brief, the Skyteam member did not indicate whether partner DELTA will takeover this route.
    Schedules to Newark from 25MAR12 has been removed, which also means flight is no longer available for reservation.

    This route hasn't made a lot of sense to me since co switched teams. Nearly anyone who cares to fly from ewr will care for *A points now...

    They've been reconsidering their routes and cutting the ones that cost too much to maintain... just like they turned over ORD-CDG to DL, it didn't make sense anymore to carry the expense of an ORD outstation. (they had staff and a lounge at ORD for one flight a day)

    Wouldn't the same have applied to FRA-EWR on LH prior to the switch of CO to *A?

    Will AZ also ditch EWR as a result?

    I think they'd be happy to ditch the New Jersey Shore / Guido passengers.

    There's a strong German draw to Jersey by German pharma companies, which had been sufficient even pre CO's defection. BMW, Mercedes and a few other big non-pharma german manufacturers also have US operations HQs in Jersey.

    I can't think of too many meaningful French comparables in Jersey.

    Dislike. :p

    The last time I looked, I was an Asian American. Pretty sure I despise Jersey Shore with a passion as well. :D

    If they want to ditch J-Woww, they can drop her off at my house. :D
