Today I drove by Pearson International, and at the Skyservice hangars, Skyservice A330 C-FRAP was painted up in Air Luxor colours. I wonder when that aircraft is due to depart YYZ? Hopefully some YYZ photographers can get a couple of pictures of it.

I can't understand how this topic "C-FRAP In Air Luxor Colours At YYZ" turns into a debate on passenger movements.
It such childish bickering...........
With regards to C-FRAP, I was just over their (Saturday, June 21) and the tail is almost done. All that is missing is the circle on the tail + the registration has been removed and it looked like they were prepping it for the new reg....

So if FRAP is now in Air Luxor colors, what will happen to Conquest and their present/future A330 fleet?
Other than FBUS, don't they have another one being used in africa by another operator and when will that be flying in Canada?

I've been told that all Skyservice 330's will be leaving the fleet, the Khaliffa Aircraft arrived in YYZ a few days ago and departed empty, RAP is now in air luxor colours and Im not sure what FBUS's fate is...Guess it took them 3 tries to figure out that a 330-300 is too much aircraft to try and run a domestic schedule with, even in the summer...

Conquest Vacations ( the tour operator ) leased RAP - SSV just ran it. So, Conquest cancelled all UK flying at their own discretion and decided to eliminate RAP from their programme. - What else is new with Conquest? They are notorious for altering schedules and cancelling flights. But having said this, SSV is not at liberty to interfere as Conquest is the customer and that aircraft was designated stricltly for them.
SSV signed a huge deal with Sunquest recently, which will apparently increase flying. I am not looking forward to the 9 B-757's that are coming our way... (and yes they are coming because we have inserts in our FAM's), I hope they won't be used for overseas - tight, tight, tight!
Talk of a temporary YVR base for the winter - nothing set in stone but they are adccepting transfer applications for it.
CF-BUS is a Sunquest designated aircraft, That will leave only 1 330 in the fleet of the 330's for SSV.
