airline and airplane from united states to paris

Jump to last reply

Warning: DO NOT take the nonstop Continental flight from Dulles to Paris (probably the same applies from Newark or JFK to Paris) because you will be flying in a "cattle car" for more than seven hours each way. Unlike the United flight I'd taken for the prior six trips, when I booked on the United web site this time, it turned out to be a Continental flight using the 757-200 airplane, a single-aisle plane with three seats on each side, instead of the 767, a wide-body, dual-aisle plane. Believe me, you DO NOT want to fly the 757-200 on this trip (or ANY OTHER intercontinental trip).
I WILL NEVER use Continental again or any other airline that stuffs passengers into single-aisle planes for intercontinental flights!! I will pay whatever premium to get the 380 or 767/777 planes for those trips. So far, only Delta/Air France uses these for the Dulles to Paris flight. Needless to say, I will be flying these lines ONLY.
Consider yourself warned about United/Continental's gross disregard for its passengers!
