Just saw an AC A320 land at LHR (around 0640 local). Is that normal ?


Anyone can fly, only the best Soar.

Air Canada flies an A319 from YYT during the summer. At a little over 2000 NM, it isn't really a stretch in terms of range, even westbound, being shorter than LAX-JFK though they probably have to carry some extra fuel to meet ETOPS requirements.

That's been running for a few years.

I seem to recall Longhauler commenting that the flight is not strictly ETOPS,but that two (I believe) of the small number of A319-116s that AC has (most are -114s I think) were equipped with an extra radio,rafts, etc., for overwater ops. Someof the A320-211s are similarly equipped for the longer Caribbean ops.

Its nice to see AC still using their A319 to LHR from YYT..I wonder where the a/c goes after the season is over for LHR?
I just hope they continue using the A319 to LHR every year so far so good  . Even AC send their EMB190 to the caribbean as well like to the Bahamas.

Looks like they also rotate over to YYZ and BDA.

If there's traffic, it will probably operate. However, the slot costs at LHR are very high, so I wonder if AC can really turn a profit on the route.

Not sure if the two a/c are designated differently in the sked than a stock A319. There are I believe 6 A320s equipped for overwater ops, and they are I believe designated as A32M is the schedule.

FINs 286 + 287 (which are the two used for YYT-LHR service) are routed this way...

RON YYZ-BDA-YYZ-YYT-LHR RON LHR-YYT-YYZ-YOW-YYZ RON YYZ-BDA-YYZ-YYT-LHR RON...... ETC

That is subject to change, pending operational requirements.



Last Flight(s): YHZ-YYZ-YHZ.....Next Flight(s): YHZ-YYZ-IAH // IAH-SEA-YYJ // YYJ-YYZ-YHZ

Looking on AC's pdf schedule,it just shows 319. Though,the aboye TR shows a A319M safety card . Plus the planes are ETOPS with the applicable rafts,radios,etc.
