Dkny,
I looked it up on ET's website, via their timetable (which is administered by Amadeus).

Btw Dkny, do you participate on EIndex?

Cheers

Do you know when YYZ will start and how it will be routed?

Wait a minute...both KHI flights will be served by a B 737-700??? Can it fly that route over 6 hrs nonstop ADD-KHI-ADD?

Berhramjee, Both KHI flights are operated by a 73W, with a flight time of 5 hours.

Dkny, still no word on YYZ. I also wonder how it will be routed - I doubt it will ever be with a stop in the US, with the US new visa rules, it would be too much of a pain.

If ever the YYZ route is launched it will be via a European city as ETs B 763ERs dont have the legs to fly ADD-EWR/IAD nonstop!!!

I hope for ETs sake, they get 5th freedom pax rights on some Euro city-YYZ route...good ones to look at are AMS and CDG.

And btw ET doesnt have any B 764s!!! This one for BA (user from BEY)...only DL and CO have B 764s and KQ did order them but then switched to the B 772ERs!!!

If ET wants to be adventurious then they should look into a ADD-CASABLANCA-YYZ or ADD-CAI-YYZ route...both RAM and MS only fly to YUL and not YYZ and nor does AC fly from YYZ nor YUL to these two cities!!!

There is a lot of demand from YYZ to these 2 African cities but more Eco class pax-low yield I would say!!!
