Does anybody know where AC 876 arrives from prior to flying on to Munich from YYZ as AC 876?

Have you never seen the Discovery channels documentary called the flight?, it follws AC876 as is flies from Toronto to Frankfurt, it was a great one though havnt seen it in 3-4 years?

It still flies YYZ-FRA and is still a 763. but wasnt aware it continued onto MUC, infact with thr LHR presence on FRA-MUC I would be amazed if it actually did!

AC846 turned from AC116 YVR-YYZ today, however, this changes day to day.

I could check, but it would be against company policy for me to release that info for safety and security reasons.
Also, YYZ is forecasting a major storm tomorrow, so there is a possibility that many flights could be disrupted.

Oh common! We could replace the endless 'Peter Max' threads we finally got rid of with 'where will AC846 come from today' threads  Big grin

When AC goes to "reduced schedule" due to winter weather storms, pre-decided flights are canceled. These flights are the first to be canceled, and they are normally flights on legs on which there are many flights. My guess is they are already canceled in anticipation.

Then they are canceled in order of back-ups for the passengers. Namely, if it is to a destination where there is only one flight a day, (like MUC), and the other flights, like LHR and FRA can not pick up the slack, (as would be the case) then it will be among the last to be canceled.

I would guess that 846/MUC will operate tomorrow. On time ... that's a stretch, but my guess would be within an hour of sched time.

I just checked the aircraft movement page and your aircraft arrives in YYZ from overseas, with a 90 minute turn. Barring any change of aircraft, your flight should operate close to schedule.

As you probably know, the weather in YYZ right now is terrible ... things are actually running within 30 minutes of schedule!

Interesting thread, since I will also be flying AC846 to MUC on Sunday, and by then the second snow storm should arrive...  Sad

Are these flights usually to those destinations which have multiple frequences and/or those destinations also expected to be affected by the storm? Or, are there other factors in the decisions?

Yes, the "severe weather" scheduled cancellations have a few traits. One is as you say, multiple flights to the same destinations giving "protection" to the passengers.

Also, these flights are a "round trip" out and back, so the aircraft is not needed down-line anywhere but the departure station.

Crew scheduling and planning also comes into play. It is the same crew, front and back end, out and back, so down-line crewing is not an issue. Also with that, there will be no "positioning" crew-members on those flights, as that too affects down-line problems.

Always a delicate balance ... but not surprising considering these big storms hit AC's largest station at least once a month in winter.

Well we had a 2 hour delay out of YYZ, yet still managed to make our connection onto GVA. Within 13 minutes of landing, we were already being pushed back onto Geneva. Our bags didn't make it until later that day though.

It seems MUC - YYZ AC847 has been cancelled today but the flight back AC846 is still on time. Does someone know, how is this possible, is it a different(/replacement) aircraft?
