XL Airways France will begin twice weekly summer service between JFK and Paris (CDG) starting today, June 26th, using A330-200 aircraft. Barring a substantial delay, however, it seems neither their arrival nor departure will be spottable on this side of the Atlantic as they both occur well after dark. The Monday and Friday flights are scheduled to get to JFK at 10pm local time, and then head back to France at 11:55pm.
