Just heard from LH NY area management, YYZ-DUS announced with a 330 5 x weekly! Not Sure if its posted, just got back from work dead tired didnt check, but if it isnt, then this is the news, they are really starting to spend the money...

YYZ was served by AC several times weekly throughout the 80s and early 90s, so this route has been operated before with some success. I suppose due to the competition with the daily AB/LT-flight to JFK, the remaining NYC market apart from the daily Privatair Business Class-flight is too low yielding to warrant another A330 on this route.

It makes much more sense indeed for AC to operate this hub to spoke route. For LH, it would be the odd one out spoke to * hub operqated by an isolated 333, which would require at least one dus-.fra ops in each direction per week.
In any case, if LH starts operating from secondary hub, DUS with its catchment area is the first choice and other * hubs will be the logical choice, which would rule out JFK.

So where is the official announcement here? I think the thread topic is a bit misleading. I hear a lot of things on board LH planes from colleagues, many rumours about new routes. But those are nothing more than just rumours, so I would not call it "LH announces". DUS-YYZ has not been one of them by the way...

Quoting FLYGUY767 (Reply 18): There is little or no evidence to back up the basis of this topic..
Is that all you do is post the same repetitive where is the evidence" routine?
Last I checked this was not a bench trial with you sitting as judge.
I have no idea whether the information is correct or incorrect and as yet it has not been substantiated with a formal announcement. But we have a least two posters who are citing a reasonable source for this. It strikes me as a little nervy for you to demand "proof" to your apparent satisfaction failing which the thread should be deleted.
if every a/net thread were held to some "proof beyond a reasonable doubt" standard you apparently demand, there would not be too much to talk about here. It's a DISCUSSION forum buddy--if you don't like the topic read something else but please do not request to have it censored because of your baseless demand for "evidence".
Maybe it's right, maybe it's wrong, but for now it's an interesting topic.

Quoting FLYACYYZ (Reply 14): Does this mean that LTU will be cutting back on its YYZ-DUS summer flights? Not sure if there's enough market to support both LH & LTU.
My thoughts exactly. Dusseldorf and Frankfurt aren't even that far apart. Doesn't seem like a huge advantage to fly into DUS over FRA. I always wondered why there wasn't a scheduled YYZ-HAM or YYZ-STR. Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany yet is seemingly ignored and Stuttgart is the heart of hugely industrialized Baden-Wurttemburg. Yes I know that Dusseldorf is in the densely populated Ruhrgebiet but it just isnt that far from FRA.

DUS is a nice airfield and could track some people from Holland to. Although Schiphol is closer from my home, it will only take 15/30 minutes more to reach DUS. Also, DUS has some great service. Last time I picked someone up from DUS, he had his suitcase within 5 minutes and was standing next to us withing 10 minutes after landing.
Very intresting to see what LH has planned from DUS in the next comming years.
have a good day, Stefan van Hierden
