This is great news for us since Norwegian will not be back in Denver. I really loved flying in the Dreamliner and was dreading having to return to flying United overseas.

Very interesting Frank II. I just booked to go back to France via Delta/Air France after studying both websites. I noticed on the Delta website that all of the transatlantic legs were operated by Air France or KLM. There were no transatlantic flights operated by Delta. New?

Air France this summer will begin nonstop service between Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport and Denver, the carrier announced. The service will operate up to three times per week starting July 2 on Boeing 787-9 aircraft

Not sure why they didn't show up on your flight search, but Delta is currently flying from both JFK and ATL to CDG.

Ya, still trying to determine how to play this. Six months ago we grabbed a Costco hotel package that include six nights each in London and Paris and the Eurostar for the end of Sep. Can fully cancel till Aug 8th. The general idea was to go a week or two early or stay a week or two afterwards -- our typical pattern. But the question is when to buy airfare. Probably will wait till the 8th. Though I thought we might try to book a one way return from Paris via Air France. Hoping they would have some promotional fares.

It’s a tough call Frank because they are only giving vouchers, not refunds. But after listening to President Macron on the other thread that Eric posted, it appears you will be good to go, at least for Paris.

Our situation is different and we’re allowed to go.

In the past we have always played a game with ff points for business class. Historically the remaining business class tickets will be released for fflyers about a week, ten days or so prior to departure. You have to be flexible so we provide ourselves with a two or three day window. And the same on the return. We have always been successful in obtaining tickets but am wondering if the game has changed with fewer flights. I am thinking it may have. We may bite the bullet and buy the tickets early.

Thanks for this info. I often depart from Denver for my international trips, flying United/Lufthansa to Frankfurt or British Airways to Heathrow. A non-stop Air France option to Paris could be useful for some trips.

The Denver direct options for the past 20 years have been Frankfurt, London (Gatwick originally, then changed to Heathrow), Munich, and more recently Reykjavik. With Norwegian, Gatwick became another option, but as noted above, that fizzled again.

Had Paris been available, a lot of our trips might’ve had a very different itinerary. This is encouraging news!

Delta is also flying Detroit to CDG nonstop. Minneapolis starts in June, SLC starts in July.

United flies the Dreamliner direct to Frankfurt from Denver.

Which airline has direct service from DEN-KEF?

I‘ve used Icelandic to go via KEF to/from FRA or MUC, 3 times doing the stopover in Iceland. Breaks up the long flight

I am so excited about this! And with the news in the Washington Post and one of the Sunday morning tv shows re France easing up travel restrictions by summertime, I am so encouraged. Especially since my oldest granddaughter was accepted for a study abroad program in Aix-en-Provence beginning in August and ending in December.
