I fly a direct Seattle-Paris round trip frequently but am still confused about the flights. Is the Seattle to a Delta flight but the Paris to Seattle an Air France flight? This makes a difference in whether to check in luggage that by Delta rules could be carryon but not by Air France rules.
Also, arriving at Paris airport, does one look for and check in at an Air France counter?
The air ticket is purchased via Delta and shows up as Delta flights both ways.
It’s confusing. Sometimes one airline is called the “operating airline” (for the other) emphasized texteven if it is not the name of the airline on the ticket.
