    This is pretty random, but I'm hoping someone here can answer a little marital dispute I'm having :) My wife recently got a Flight Memory account and we're trying to fill in some of her past history, and she's insistent that she flew nonstop on AA from FLL to CDG in December 2000 or January 2001. I keep saying there's no way that AA ever had a nonstop from FLL to Europe, and that she probably flew out of MIA, but she won't budge.

    So does anyone know if AA has ever operated a flight like this?

    Thanks in advance!

    I can't verify 100% that they never had the route, but not seeing anything turn up in searching. It does seem to hard to imagine given MIA, but I'm sure others on here could give a definitive answer. I think currently FLL only has nonstop Europe service to FRA on Condor.

    I love FlightMemory and had a lot of fun trying to remember flights from 30 years ago. You may end up deciding to let wife be right though, no matter what we turn up on here;)

    If a man says something in a forest, and there is no woman around to hear him, is he still wrong?

    Yes.

    You lose this dispute, no matter which way it goes.

    I don't recall any such route and seriously doubt it existed.

    AA isn't strong at FLL or CDG, nor were they 10 years ago.

    Could she be thinking of departing MIA for CDG?

    As you guys have said, I know I'm never going to "win" this argument, but since she'll never go on milepoint, I had to find out for my own knowledge!

    I didn't think this flight ever existed...thanks for the verification!
