Skyservice Airlines will take delivery of a ex Qantas Boeing 767-200 aircraft in the late spring for operation on their eastern europe program. This came from sources at 5G. With the A333 coming back and now a 762, spotting should be fun this summer at YYZ

That will allow Skyservice to fly direct non-stop out of Toronto to any Eastern European destination, without that technical-refueling stop at Belfast.

Wonder if they have any future plans to launch similar Eastern European destinations out of Vancouver? An B767-200ER would have no problem reaching anywhere in Eastern Europe out of Vancouver.

While this isn't exactly new, the company has been pursuing this direction for a while. I don't believe anything is confirmed regarding the 762 yet either, but there's still a good chance of it happening. The Eastern European program has likely been planned with both the 752 and the 762 in mind, and I hope the 762 wins out in the end.

Debating between the two however, the 762 will have higher seat/mile costs, although it shouldn't require the technical stop. It will also be able to generate increased revenue from the additional seats. I hope work out well with the 762.

. . . looks like Qantas have 767-238ER configured as 30 BIZ and 175 economy

C4U, you can bet the config will change with Skyservice  Wink The A330-300 coming into the fleet will have a pretty big J Class section, so it will be interesting to see if the 762 will also, if it shows up. I just don't see Skyservice operating it with 205 seats, when the 757's carry 215 in the most common configuration at Skyservice. 205 seats just can't be economical given the business model that Skyservice uses.

Actually, the fuelling stop and crew change point was Dublin.

Neither do I, but how many seats you can possibly fit in a one class configuration 767-238ER without shortening its initial range capability?

Quoting A.net's aircraft data's "Max seating for 290 at eight abreast and 76cm (30in) pitch/ Range with PW4056s 12,269km (6625nm), with CF6s 12,352km (6670nm)."

Quite right sorry for inaccuracy

I'm pretty sure they used to fuel stop at BFS as well, and also take on more passengers. I remember thinking it very strange my friend flying to PMI on a Skyservice aircraft and having a 30 hour delay coming back, and so getting another day's holiday.

I don't think the technical stop was always in Dublin, but I'd have to check it out.

The 762, if it comes, will likely have a small J Class (my guess) plus 2-3-2 seating in the back, so a realistic config might be in the 250 range perhaps?

Why not 2-4-2?

ThomsonFly get 290 seats in their 762Er's.
