Agreed. Intra-Schengen you do not have to arrive at or depart from a French Customs airfield. The suspension only means that Customs, Police or Sanitary Authorities can turn up to check you if they want to.

France suspends Schengen.
I must depart France from a designated Immigration field, and comply if necessary with PNR. I can still land at a strip in Spain as they are still Shengen.
Then I must reverse this for the return journey.

Seems like you just carry on as before and they'll come and see you if they want to. Like the UK border force and the GAR.
