SWISS has (wet)leased a AC A 333 for their flight to YUL till December 15th due to lack of cockpit crews for their own A 332. I saw her today a Dock-E at ZRH. With the icy livery she is really a beauty. I like her seeing in Zurich for the next few weeks .

Interesting.....with at least one 333 under-going the XM conversion, I didn't realize that AC had the spare capacity to lease out another 333 to LX....Is this due to the fact that the winter timetable has begun and AC has cut back on capacity on some of its routes?

So is this now a combined flight? One aircraft covering for two, one AC and one Swiss? Or is AC still flying its separate flight? What equipment is AC using from YYZ to ZUR, 763 or 77L/W? Hoping it is the 777's so there is more room for Swiss Chocolates for Christmas :P.

Quoting Thenoflyzone (Reply 8): Quoting YULWinterSkies (Reply 7):
Will the flight maintain LX's great service standard? Or is AC taking care of this?
Usually when you wet-lease and aircraft, it means that the whole crew comes with the aircraft. Therefore, you will get AC service on board, especially that the flight number is an AC one, (AC7101)
LX flight numbers are the usual LX86 westbound and LX87 eastbound, showing "operated by AC". The AC codeshare flight numbers for booking purposes are AC6819 westbound and AC6818 eastbound, showing "operated by AC for LX".
