Why has AF 333 (CDG-BOS) been cancelled so much?

This flight has been cancelled 3 out of the last 7 days (Saturday, Sunday and today). Why does this flight keep cancelling?

There were 2 cancellations (not 3) in the time window you mentioned (on oct 21, the flight was renumbered AF4081). But 2 cancellations in 1 week is already significant. I know that yesterday, the aircraft went tech. Don’t know for the other one.

PS : AF333 is BOS-CDG, not CDG-BOS

There seems to be an chronic problem with A333 deployment. CDG-ABV-PHC was cancelled last Friday, in a long series of many cancellations on this route this year.

A332, not A333 (AF doesn't have Airbus A330-300) , to not be confused with the flight numbers we are talking about here to/from BOS !
No, it's not related. At the moment this flight is operated by a B777 (772 or 77W depending on the day).

Ah, the confusion! No relation indeed.
