EgyptAir- A330-200 - Why No JFK Service?

I have noticed that for many years Egypt Air has sent the 767 and even 777 into JFK, and I have wondered why not send the A332? I believe that the A330 has the range to do JFK-CAI and possibly return. Any information on this?

Well I would assume considering 6H is starting TLV-JFK which is pretty much the same

but maybe its not enough capacity?

Egyptair has sent a variety of aircraft to JFK in the past such as the 767, 747, and A340. The flight used to route CAI-JFK-LAX until a couple of years ago when the LAX segment was cut and the flights went to solely the 777-200.

I believe the A330-200 does not have enough capacity for the CAI-JFK route. Egpyt Air seems to be doing very well and I have even heard talk of a second flight in the summer.

I've also heard this rumor, as well as IAH-CAI flights. Any news on this?

I know Turkish sends the A332 N/S to JFK from IST- which is a longer flight If I am not mistaken?

By capacity I'm not referring to range. I mean in terms of seats and cargo space in the A330 vs. the 777.

No, CAI is further by 520 nm.
CAI-JFK 4879 nm
IST-JFK 4359 nm

Could the 332/333 do ATH-JFK and back since it too is also shorter distance then IST- but I guess that too would be weight restricted?

I also heard the 333 has less range then the 332 which i thought MS had, but they don't.

Egyptair is doing very well on the CAI-JFK route , there were even talks that MS would start a twice weekly Alexandria-New York service in addition to the daily B777 CAI-JFK flights, but nothing has materialized so far .
There are 2 main reasons why MS is not deploying their A330's on the CAI-JFK route :
1/ The A330's can carry much less passengers than the B777-200ER .
2/ The A330's only have Business and Economy class while the T7 have 3 classes .

I wonder why MS hasnt tried the A330-200 on YULCAI. The economics on that aircraft are certainly better than the A340-200, and I cant imagine that F class is really that popular on the YUL route.

In other news, with the recently renewed interline agreement with AC, talks that MS will be going year-round to Montreal, and want to extend to Toronto.

I totally agree , we may see MS switching to the A330 when they receive more of them in 08 or 09 .
