You bet she will! I'll have to remind the other YYZ spotters about this... In case they're all still asleep (heh heh)
Can you help me with the schedule. I can't seem to find anything online to confirm the times.
Thanks.

Thanks!
I tried the Toronto airport site then Flytecomm. Guess those weren't updated yet. Still kinda early over here.

edit:
And for those here at YYZ - Yes, I do know it's for tomorrow (the 25th.)  Wink/being sarcastic

I'ts great to see BMI expand its transatlantic service. Didn't BMI place an order for four A330s, they have three? I wonder if they have any other future routes in mind. I can see BMI flying into caribbean destination.


Good to see BMI grow.  Big thumbs up

Sadly I will be flying out to PHL in the morning from YYZ and will miss the inaugural flight. Hopefully Grant or Garry will be around to catch her.

Cheers,

She's on her way.... Pushed back from the gate 13mins early, complete with water cannon salute, estimating Toronto 2010GMT.

Tony,

I was planning to go see it this afternoon, but it was raining and I didn't want my new Nikon D70 to get wet.  Smile Anyway I'm busy processing the 70 pics I took with it yesterday at FedEx. I'm fairly confident that at least one will get accepted on A.Net Big grin

How are the loads on this flight looking right now?

Really good or a non-revver's dream?

Hopefully, they'll be able to pull something out with an A332. It seems like a big capacity jump from AC's 762s of last summer. Also, I think AC sold the Domestic Business class as full-fare hospitality service so will BMI be able to fill the lucrative business class? I wish them the best luck and hope to have a chance to catch it when I visit YYZ during my annual summer visit. Big grin

Still early in the game, but loads particularly in the premium cabins, were light.

Business 8
New Economy 9 (Including 2 staff)
Economy 146

Demand for First & Business have always been light on transatlantic routes to GLA & MAN. Premium cabin demand based on full revenue fare tickets actually diminish during the summer season as the vast majority of customers are leisure travellers. Should be interesting to see if BD can sustain 3 cabin service to/from YYZ. Any ideas on how they fare on ORD & IAD routes??

The odd time I've seen the figures, they've not been too bad: between 20 and 25 business, around the same for new economy (but on one occasion an imbalance: 25 business, 7 new economy) and nice, full economy.
