I just looked at a few pictures from Berlin-Schönefeld and there I noticed this shot:

In the back you can see an Air Canada tail. My question is if that at that time was a regular visitor or if that plane is there for just about any other reason?
I never knew about any service to Berlin operated by AC.

Thanks in advance,
Max

AC operated regularly scheduled flights into SXF in 1994. Believe the service lasted for a better part of a year and a half. With the launch of Star Alliance, with the exception of AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA & MUC, LH handles connections to all other German cities. AC also served DUS in the late 80's as an extension of the YYZ-CDG flight with the L1011-500.

FLYACYYZ,
thank you for the information. I knew about their service to DUS but never about SXF. So Berlin-Schönefeld didn't only have Singapore Airlines as longhaul carrier.

Them stopping SXF can not have anything to do with Star/LH though if they flew it in 1994 since they started to work with LH in 1996 and Star was born in 1997.

Wasn't DUS flown from LHR rather than CDG? I know that DUS did not only see the L1011 but also the 747 and 767.

GodBless -

Star didn't start up till 1997 but AC had strategic alliances with LH dating back to early 1995. It seemed more viable to have daily connections via AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA versus 3 or 4 weekly direct/non-stop flights.

You're right about the routings as well. Initially, DUS was an extentsion of AC880 YYZ-CDG-DUS on the L1011-500/s. It was replaced by AC866 YMX-LHR-DUS on the 747-200M's and 767-200's. Over time AC decided it wasn't viable to operate "tag end" european flights such as:
YMX-LHR-NCE
YMX-LHR-DUS
YYZ-YMX-CDG-GVA
YYZ-CDG-MUC
