Looking at the Air Canada timetable - and OAG.com - AC will start B744 service from YYC(Calgary) to LHR in April. I don't remember when YYC last had 747Pax service.

So the four Canadian 744s will be doing the London-Calgary, London-Vancouver, Osaka-Vancouver, and Tokyo-Vancouver routes this summer.

Unbelivable.
I didnt know loads on the YYC-LHR were that big and heavy. The A340s and 767s I used to see that flew to LHR at many times took off using about half to 3/4th of the main runway.. about 7-8000 feet..

This is going to be amazing!
I wonder which 744 they will be using, the Ex CDn 475s or the AC 433s/COMBI..
Probably COMBI by my guess as YYC cargo is also growing at a rapid rate..

I'm surprised too. It'll be great to see the Air Canada 744's. We are also getting a second Cargolux 744 in weekly. LHR-YYC has been a 763 that has been upgraded to A340 during peak times. I wonder if a A340 to FRA is comming too?

Mark, I heard by the time the seasons start shaping up the A340 will return as the primary equipment for the FRa-YYC.
Do you know which day the second Cargolux will come in? Please let it be a DAYTIME or EVENING flight..

Ya i heard that too, and to believe that they were considering cancelling our european flights. Though I'm wondering if this upgrade might be at the expense of YEG. I thin Cargolux will be the same horrible time, on fridays though. I've heard rumours that YYC is closer to getting Asian cargo service.

Iginla was incredable. GO Canada! The Flames better resign him.

Well it's cargo, cargo's most effiecient at night when they can land, drop their shit off, then get the hell outta there real quick.

That other "gold" post was deleted, what a bunch of whiners

I think they turn around the 744 in less than 45 minutes. That was one of the reasons for serving YYC.

I wonder if using the B744 will relegate YYC to only one LHR flight during the summer. The past few summers we have two daily flights to LHR (1-A340 at 18:00, 1-767 aroung 21:00).

The 747 service will only be from Apr 1 to May 31 then on June 1st it goes back to 2x Daily 767 service, The 747 will arrive into YYC at 150:5 and leave at 19:15
