For all those YYZ and YVR spotters, A340-600 B-HQA is operating CX828 to YVR and YYZ today (22-8-03) departing HKG 16:20LT. 5 mins behind that is B-HQB in CX838 operating the usual YVR service, so there will be two A346s in a row for all you YVR spotters! Get your cameras out!
Disclaimer: As I type this message it is 9:25am, so anything could happen, but this is the plan at the moment!

If you go to http://www.hkadb.com there are the schedules of the A340-600s, HOX and HOY. The website is in Chinese, but on the right hand side you will see those 5 aircraft listed and their schedules for the coming few days, bar any changes.

Jesus, you must be kidding me!!!!
I cannot believe it. I just hope that CX will fly their A346 more often to YYZ here. As far as I know from the last couple of weeks, there are many denied boardings for both 828 and 829. YYZS?CX, good job. Just keep the sales up!
I guess we'll have to wait until it leaves YVR in a couple of hours from now to see the actual arrival time... say around 2100 EDT. I think I will still show up for the arrival though unless it gets past midnight... anyone else?

HELL YEAH! I'm planning to be there!
I know Cpt.Gomes and G-Money were sidelined by that pesky virus thingy, so, I'll try to inform them via cell/sms.
Thanks for the heads-up!
Anyone else feel like pulling a late-nighter?

OK... here's the rundown so far...
Seems like the turn in YVR went well despite the I/B delay as the FIDS are now indicating revised arrival of 2317 EDT. Current landing active is RWY 23, arrival freq is currently 124.475, TWR is 118.8. Will update as necessary.

I've been checking with CX - trying to get a revised departure time for CX829 from YYZ, but their toll free number still gives it as 23:55. Their local number just refers you to the the 1-888 number. I guess I'll have to get up real early in the morning and check out the GTAA webfids. I'd really like to get a picture of this beast in daylight.
