Was just looking at flight status for AC146 my family and i are taking YYC to YYZ tonight. It was an A320, then A321, now shows A330?

Anyone know what's up?

Any flights before you canceled and they need the increased load?

All the sked flights YYC YYZ are either on time or delayed a bit, but no canx. Must be a repositioning.

yeah I just checked all incoming YYZ-YYC in case that was the reason for the upgage (higher demand from YYZ) but no cancelations.

The late flight out of YYZ to YYC and the return redeye are usually quite busy over the Christmas months and I've seen them as 767's before. I think they like to try to get all the remaining standbys out of YYC on the redeye so they are not stranded overnight. It's probably the 333 from FRA and maybe it's being cycled into YYZ for maintanence as well?

Was an E90, then a A330 for Ops planning.

It looks like the real reason for the upgauge was for pax pro due to a cancelled YYZ-YYC flight on Dec 26. The A330 arrived in YYC as AC145/26Dec (YYZ-YYC). If you're curious, the aircraft was Fin 938 (C-GHLM) - The *A bird.



Last Flight(s): YHZ-YUL-YOW-YWG-YVR // YVR-YYZ // YYZ-YUL-YHZ

Same thing has happened to me before on the exact same flight. But it was an erj to an A321. The reason was that a larger aircraft was needed for a different flight in YYZ. Maybe same reasoning here?
