As the title says C-GKOM now has the tail in the new colours, NOT THE BODY.

952's been in the hangar at HAECO for at least 4-5 days but now its parked outside.

too bad, this bird will be homeless when the big bad Boeing come into the picture. Airbus is bumming right now... 345 is a very beautiful plane... But looks don't always sell... Too bad...


Airbus or Boeing - it's all good to me!

AC are getting Boeing so Airbus are doomed  biggrin 

Anyway as far as aircraft go the 777 is great but I will always take a A330 / A340 over one because of the seating in Y.

Why would AC get the tail painted in HKG? I would have thought that it would have been done on home soil and in a lot less than 5 days.

The C01 check was done in HKG because there was no space in YUL to do the check. 951 will have the same treatment, plus an A340 will be done in SIN and a couple 767's in DUB, AC takes heavy maintenance contracts from DL, US and TS, and outsources its own aircrafts...

It might not make logical sense, but I guess we have to take it for face value considering Air Canada's lovely profit.

A lot of airlines get their maintenance done with HAECO. What's wrong with that?

For those interested C-GKOL just passed the office on the way from HAECO to the terminal. Now with the new tail scheme, I assume its going to operate AC016 to Toronto today.

I have since heard that these birds were going in for C-Checks over there. That makes sense. I thought it sounded odd that it would take 5 days to apply a sticker in HKG, when it could have been done overnight in Canada. It makes more sense if they had it in for a C-Check anyways.

Something like 30 of the older A320's will disappear, however, this is not because of the widebody order. Some of the A320's are getting old (average age right now for the A320's is 12.5years), so AC will fly the A319 on some of the A320 routes, and the new E-190's on some of the A319 routes to better match demand.

Perhaps it is cheaper to have their work done in Asia than in Canada. Besides, with all the work coming in from US and DL, it may be worth more to pay to have AC's fleet done somewhere else and take in new customers. One of the concerns with ACTS was its reliance on Air Canada. Now that they have new and large customers, it will benefit ACE thanks to ACTS's value, especially since they are going to spin it off next year.

Perhaps I am wrong here, but AC aircraft would have priority when in mx, and that could cause problems when customers don't get their aircrafts or engines back in time. This was a major problem back in the 1990s when AC did work for UPS. UPS was very angry that AC couldn't get their engines out in time, and AC eventually lost that contract.

AC is only getting rid of a few A320s. AC has something like 48 A320s. They are not getting rid of the majority of the fleet!

They cancelled the last 2 or 3 A321s on order, and I don't think they are getting rid of more than 3 or 4 A319s in the coming years. Maybe someone has the exact numbers.

How does AC fly YYZ/HKG when one of the 345s are in the shop? Do they swap a 343 onto the route?

Flight is substituted with an A340-300 and load restricted westbound.

If the tail treatment is like the A319 fleet, the tailart is just a stick-on decal...very quick to apply, and cheaper than repainting!
