    BA’s Openskies drops Paris-Washington route:(

    BA's subsidiary Openskies will cease flights between Paris Orly and Washington DC on October 28, just 18 months after the route was launched.

    The carrier commenced five-times weekly flights to Washington on May 3, 2010 (see online news February 9, 2010), joining its existing service to New York Newark.

    No official announcement has been made on the flyopenskies.com website about the cutting of the Washington route, but the Washington Business Journal reports that the airline has begun contacting passengers booked on flights after October 28, offering to rebook them onto flights to London Heathrow, with a connecting flight to Paris, or alternatively obtain a refund.

    A T5-T5 connection. If you can't do the trip non-stop (which is almost always better), there are far worse places to have to connect.
