Anyone have some info on this flight that is happening now...

http://flightaware.com/live/flight/TSC41

At just over 8,000 km's, that plane must be weight restricted. Although considering it climbed to 37,000 feet right after takeoff, i would guess that it's very lightly loaded.
Operated by C-GTSY i believe.

Maybe the pilot knows that you can land an A310 safe without any fuel left as a sailing plane, as the Hapag Lloyd flight did some years ago in Vienna.

Probably a ferry flight. TAP ME (former VEM) is performing heavy checks on Air Transat's A310s at their GIG facility.


Please insert a "smart" joke here.

Another possibility, TAP Maintenance has it's bigger facility at GIG so this plane could be in route to a C or D Check.
I remind about some A310's in the past, so for sure they are certified for that and seems the reason (you can fly just with flight deck crew and one or two F/A)

Wouldn't it be easier to fly to TLS for a home-check? Smile

Transat doesn't always carry cargo on some of its routes, just passenger baggage. I would assume this flight is for maintenance as well or a private charter.

If maintenance is the case, i'm sure they quote several Maintenance providers.

Thats not really all that much of a challenge for an A310...

http://www.airliners.net/aircraft-data/stats.main?id=20

According to the above source the range is 9580km for the A310-300... Despite what people say about the A310, its a great aircraft and doesn't get the respect it deserves! It seems to always get over shadowed by the more popular 767 of its times!

This flight could have been a ferry flight and maybe returning to the leasing company as TS will be replacing all A310s with the A330.

I was with former Swiss Charter "Balair" when we replaced our DC-10 with three brand new A310-325 back in 1992. Those planes then flew on regular base from ZRH to SFO and the stopover in BGR was only used for crew change reasons. On the way back they actually could have done SFO - ZRH all the time nonstop, just on the onward flight the risk for unplaned fuel stops was to big. The also did ZRH - YYC or ZRH - ANC, both on regular base.

Cheers
