Hey guys, I'm not sure if this has been discussed before, however I was @ LHR @ around 0700HRS (20/09/10) and spotted a AC A319 A/C, where would this flight have originated? Its seemed odd to see such a small aircraft at Heathrow seemingly originating from the West, any ideas?

It has been discussed numerous times. The 319 operates AC's seasonal flights to and from St. John's (YYT). If I not mistaken, two 319s in AC's fleet have been specially configured for the long over-water flights (i.e. emergency rafts etc.)

cheers

It has been already discussed several times. For example, here: Air Canada Reinstating YYT-LHR (by AC_B777 Dec 17 2009 in Civil Aviation)

You can even find a trip report in the database.

It certainly must be an unexpected view   Here's BMIFlyer's trip report:
