Hi everyone,

I'm looking at Flight Aware and I see that Air Canada is using the B777 for the YYZ-CPH-YYZ route today. More specifically AC2083 is operated by 77W. Is that a regular thing?

Regards,

Vio

Looking at AC's website, the flight number from YYZ-CPH is 882 and operated by an A330. I'm confused... Is this a charter flight?

Quoting vio (Thread starter):

Regarding the aircraft, it's probably a substitution. The flight is explainable. July 4th's AC882 left CPH at 13:54 with a different type of aircraft than the day before, thus July 5th's AC883 became today's flight AC2083.

It arrives all the time   (I'm willingly exaggerating it ) on the YUL-GVA-YUL route. No later than yesterday, AC834 got cancelled and only left YUL today twelve hours later as AC2034.

Btw, if you get confused, this is a great to find out: http://www.aircanada.com/en/travelin...veller/flightstatus/index.html#300

I am not sure what's going on with the A330s lately ... a string of bad luck with maintenance delays. Both CPH and GVA are scheduled as A330s, and yes ... there was a Triple sub for the CPH A330 cancellation.

I do know that with the B787 delivery delays, everything else is running at near max utilisation and there is little room to catch up for these maintenance delays.

Last year it was the same with the 763, several delays and cancellation to GVA.

Not to mention AC even has CS-TFT (EuroAtlantic 763) running around helping out.
