Quoting LTU932 (Reply 2): All the aircraft types listed should be perfectly capable of flying those charters nonstop (unless BY is using 767As and not ERs, which I doubt).
BY's older 762ERs have issues with range on the flights, namely because they are in an ultra-high density configuration. Because of the high weight without fuel, they end up being able to carry less fuel and have less range, usually requiring a Bangor stop.
Quoting 71Zulu (Reply 3): Will be quite a sight to see the A332 coming in over Airline Highway.
Hate to toot my own horn, but here is a rather pretty A332 at MSY.
Wow! A VS A340-600 at MSY? Can MSY support an A340-600? I thought that the -600 model of the A340 has many issues at various Airports worldwide due to its massive length and very large wing-span, and I would assume that many of the gates at MSY are a bit of a tight squeeze for that? Would I be correct in saying this?
sure, in many of the gates, it would be an issue. Still, there is plenty of space for an A346 to park.
Thanks, I guess I didn't think of that. I would love to see pics of an A346 at an airport as small as MSY. When I mean small, I mean in terms of normally does see such large passenger aircrafts. I've see a Saudi B747SP sitting down at RST once. It was in town to bring some Princes and Sheikhs to Mayo Clinic. Wow! If anybody has ever seen RST, you would know what I mean. Also, the rwy at RST is a bit short. Anyways, sorry for getting off topic.

King Abdullah flew into MSY on his 747SP. VS and LH, among others, have brought in 744s.. Countless 777s, including an AF 773ER have diverted into MSY when IAH was closed. The airport was getting daily 767 service before the storm. Large aircraft are not uncommon here.
