Great news for CPH, and hopefully the route will be more successfull this time compared to the last time AC tried YYZ-CPH

I am surprised this wasn't more successful before, what with two Alliance hubs. Best of luck to them! Or did they last do it before Star was in existence?

This is great news!

Funny how one hears it here first.

Copenhagen has always been one of my favourtite European cities.

In the past, it was flown by both AC and CP at different times.

If I am not mistaken at one time , way before the formation of Star Alliance CP and SK ran a joint service with some flights operated by CP and some by SK ... but I dont think it lasted very long .

Yes, that is correct.

Before that, when AC flew passengers into CPH, it was on a DC-8-63!

AC is really trying to beef up their service to Europe both this summer and last with the new flights from YUL-GVA,FCO,BCN,ATH,BRU(I know there is a YYZ tag on a couple of them, i just forget which ones) and now YYZ-CPH! Best of luck to them on these routes.

Just wondering if AC have enough 763s to operate all these new routes (CPH, BCN, ATH, BRU, YYC-NRT) without going to cut other existing routes.

Year over year, Air Canada has received an additional B777-300 and has converted 3 767-300 (3Y0's) to international flying.

The net result is incremental airplanes to expand internationally.

Based on my observations, for next summer:

YYZ - MUC - 333 from 763
YYZ - FRA (late flight) - 333 from 763

And to get those 333's:

YVR - LHR - 1x 77W from 2x 333

That frees up a pair of 763's! Having said that... I didn't think AC 876 YYZ-FRA needed an upgrade... that's now a 77W, LH's 343, and now the late AC 333. YYC-LHR remains an early 333, and late 763. So the aircraft for this came indirectly from reducing capacity on YVR-LHR...

YYC-FRA will also be a 763 this summer.

Really? The timetable is still showing 333 as far as the eye can see. I have no idea on loads, but even with LH's 343 now, they have kept the 333 and haven't downguaged to a 763 for winter. So I'd expect the 333 to stay for summer as well.

I also believe this flight will be a 333 all summer.

From what I can see, the 333s will be deployed on the following transatlantic routes in summer 2010:

AC846 YYZ-MUC 333
AC878 YYZ-ZRH 333
AC876 YYZ-FRA 333
AC858 YYZ-LHR 333
AC864 YUL-LHR 333
AC844 YYC-FRA 333
AC850 YYC-LHR 333

... as well as YVR-YYZ v.v.



Next flights: YQM-YYZ-YOW v.v. / YQM-CUN v.v. / YQM-YUL-YWG v.v. / YSJ-YYZ-SEA-SFO / SFO-YYZ-YOW-YQM / YQM-YYZ-MUC-TXL /

That is a great news to see AC expanding to new or return destinations in Europe. I hope they continue expanding to other new destiantions in Europe.

According to FlightAware both ZRH and MUC were 333's this past summer as well. I didn't know this.

Glad to here that AC is adding another European destination to its network.

It would be nice to see AC fly to either BUD or PRG. MA flew to YYZ and enjoyed very good loads during the summer, OK will be pulling the plug on its YYZ flights too. AC could do a YYZ-PRG-BUD routing.

... as well as YVR-YYZ v.

There was talk about AC getting some more A330s, maybe some A332. Any news on that?

I'm sure they'd love to have a couple more 763's.

Would it be of any interest to AC to turn refurbish the 3 non-xm 763's that they have, or are they really needed in the lesiure markets?

They'll be refurb'd, but not given the lie flat J seats and PTV's like the other 763's. A good airplane to have for routes like AC 41 YYC-HNL.

Yes. Early 90's. 3x weekl 763 2 by CP and 1 by SK. So the SK 763 was in YYZ weekly. Service was shortlived. Can't remember if the CP was nonstop or via AMS.

One summer (93?) C3 operated a weekly YYZ-CPH via KEF with the 320. This was charter though.



Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.
25 EBGflyer : Great to see AC back in CPH. I flew the CPH-YYZ route back and forth in July/August 2003 and was luckily upgraded to C both ways as the plane was tota
26 RP TPA : Weren't they also using the 763 back then? Are you talking about a lack of 763's (ie, wanting to use them on a more profitable route?), And how will
27 Viscount724 : What's changed since the last time AC served CPH that makes it more likely to be successful this time? Canada-Scandinavia has always been a low-yield
28 EBGflyer : Yes, they were using the 763's back in 2003. I remember the old style J seats and 1-2-2 configuration. As I recall, the discussion back then was abou
29 Alevik : I realize that AC will put the metal on the YYC to FRA/LHR routes that will make them the most $. More power to them! However, one request from a YYC
30 Acey : A 763 for YYC will be cycling through from NRT as well.
31 Whiteguy : Wouldn't it be great if airlines scheduled their service around photographers! Lots of B763s going through YYC all winter heading to HNL, OGG, CUN, M
32 Thenoflyzone : Add to that YUL-FRA A333. Also, YYC-FRA will operate 763 from May 1 to May 31. The rest of the time it's a A333. Thenoflyzone
33 Matt : YUL-FRA will be operated by a 77W Schedules are showing a 333 in May as well...
34 Thenoflyzone : Well, the online timetables at AC.com show a B763 in May. As for YUL-FRA, you are correct, could be though they havent updated their timetables yet,
35 Matt : Yes, my mistake. I read "June" instead of "May". The 8th flight is a YVR-YYZ-YVR daily rotation.
36 Thenoflyzone : That's what i thought...makes sense. Thanks. Thenoflyzone
37 Someone83 : The route will be flown daily in the summer and 4x weekly in the winter
