3 More B767-300ER For AC?

According to this web-page

http://www.canairradio.com/fleet.html

It states that AC is acquiring 3 more 767-300ER in June/July. Does anybody know about this?

With their recent order of 787, it seems that they are going to leave the AC fleet at a very young age.

The order is for 767-375ER and two 767-3Y0ER from Kenya Airways. I wonder if they are going to come into the fleet with the winglets (Boeing subsidies?)

Also, if this information is accurate, what routes are they going to use them on?

YVR-NGO? (Year round service offered)?

I don't think CAN is in the range of a 767-300ER is it? I heard that they are starting that in 2006 but with the 767-300ER, I would think a technical stop is neccesary somewhere.

Any info appreciated
Thanks in advance

Yeah i think YVR-CAN at 6300 miles is out of the range of the 763. But what is this about winglets on 763?

AC had publically stated that they are adding an A340, and 3 767-300 in addition to the 2 767-200 from the desert to the fleet. Most likely these will be used to free up A340s for additional YYZ-Asia flying that is starting in the summer. These are not new 767-300s however ironically one of them was operated by CP previously.

Quoting ChrisA330 (Reply 2):

So for instance the one that is coming from Kenya, was it leased to them and AC is getting it back?

In other threads, it was mentioned quite often that AC was to choose between the A350/B787 and the company who won the bid was to fund AC for the utilization of winglets for their large B767 until the 787 came and replaces them.
