Anyone know why AC is flying ZRH-YUL with an A330-300 today? Flight AC7101, scheduled to land around 17h50 local.

Usually LX operates this route daily with an A330-200. Interesting to note that yesterday's LX flight to Montreal was cancelled, or at least that's what www.flightview.com says.

Until December 15, LX86/87 will be operated by an AC A333 instead of the usual LX A332 (for more infos check the Swiss Aviation Thread).

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 Big grin .

Huh, well, if/when the huge Star Alliance transatlantic revenue share kicks in, maybe AC and Swiss can swap out on routes like this  Smile

Both great airlines and I'd be happy to fly either of them.

Actually LX and AC already share the Switzerland-Canada market. Usually SWISS flies ZRH-YUL (A 332) and AC YYZ-ZRH (B 763).

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?

Will the flight maintain LX's great service standard? Or is AC taking care of this?


When I doubt... go running!

 checkmark 

That and the delivery of the B77W and B77L free up some A333 and B763s.

To give you and example, last year, during the winter season, all flights from YUL to LHR, FRA and CDG were operated by the A333. Now, FRA and CDG are using the B77W.

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)

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.

It is a SWISS flight operated by AC aircraft. AC does usually not fly YUL-ZRH. AC flies YYZ-ZRH and SWISS the YUL flight.

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".

Thats solves the mystery. I took this today and wondered why there were two AC planes on the ground at ZRH.

763 to YYZ and A330 to YUL.

Well you will have an AC crew, and how great one considers them is up to people that fly a lot on AC. Whereas I guess that catering should be standard from SWISS?

Will AC only use C-GHKX or will we also get another A333 for this route, perhaps an XM'd plane altough I doubt it as long as there is only one done?
