Hello,

I just got back from YVR and saw a Canadian North 737-200 in the old colours. (I.e. very old colours!). As the JP states, they have 2 aircraft, and I remember reading that one was in the new colours, so does anyone know what the registration of the one left in the old colours is?

Thanks!!!!

I think they have more that 2, I've seen 3 alone in YEG 2 in old, 1 in new, the one painted in new colours is the spirit of Nunavut, there is at least 2 more old colour planes, the spirit of Yellowknife and at least another one. sorry cant tell you the reg. #.
Unfortuantley I doudt they will be around much longer, First Air is slaughtering them in every route the fly, (Yellowknife-Edmonton, Iqaluit-Ottawa, Yellownife Cam. Bay, Yellowknife Rankin-Iqaluit and Yellowknife-Inuvik.

I flew them before christmas, there was 10 of us onbaord (YEG-YZF)
Then after Christmas going from YZF-YEG there was 2 of us. A First Air flight left behind us each time and was fully loaded.

They wet lease their jets and crews from Canadian Airlines International as hence are under a CP Reg#.
The compnay Canadian North, is owned by an Innuit company, handled by Frontec and employs only ground personel.

I forgot to add that the 3 Canadian North 732's are Combi aircraft (the cargo is basically the only thing keeping them going) On certain flights from YEG the use actualy Canadian Airlines International Planes, in all pax. configuration including buisness class. This is only done on certain flights on certain days of the week.

The planes get shuffled around alot,(between CP and CP North) its hard to keep track of them. I remember when they had a huge fleet, and flew all over the north, my times have changed.

Maybe the First Air flights from Edmonton to Yellowknife and vv are charters and hence the rreason they were full?

I can't see any scheds YEG/YZF except 5T and the AC codeshare on 5T.

Sorry to burst your bubble JaseWGTN:

YZF-YEG is a VERY popular route, First Air is loaded because they are an AIR CANADA CONNECTOR, FORMELY NWT AIR. All the japanese toursits fly them as well as business people and the Yellowknife residents to fly anywhere in the world connecting on AC, we used to have to take CP north, but AC elemintated them for the computer reservation system, hence vvery poor loads.

First Air and CP north flights are all Sked, infact email me and will send you a schedule.


I live in YZF and fly that route close to 15times a year.

Bubble? I don't have a bubble to burst.  

All I was saying that I can't see 7F flights, only 5T and AC.

Maybe they don't load them into Apollo....

Sorry I didnt mean to sound rude.

First Airs flights are really messed up.

The flights origninally run by NWT air are under NV95XX, in the AC computer they are listed as AC flight numbers, and says as a blurb, "operated by Northwest Territorial." This includes YZF-YEG YZF-YWG via Rankin and YZF-Inuvik and YZF-Iqaluit.

All thier other flights are just a number, which are the flights formely of Ptarmigan Airways, and are/were First Air routes or 7FXXX, which is the original First Air. It depends where the flight is from and where it is going.

Since 737-200 Combis are widely used up North, how many seats are typically allocated for pax while a portion of the plane (the rear) is for cargo? Does it vary depending on specific routes in the North?

It all depends on the cargo load, if it is a big load, less seats, especially if its in a less dense route. The passengers sit in the back, and the cabin is accessed via folding air stairs. The typical is 76 seats, and usually hangs around that number although it is not uncommon for them to be swithced to all pax or all cargo.

They are all 737-200's and First Air flies some 722s and 721s.

Hope this helps.

thanks for all your info. I assume the one I saw in YVR was there for maintenance.
