The way in which you have written this sounds like a joke because everyone knows that AC will be using the B787s to operate from these cities internationally and few domestic. What is required to be found out is on what specific trans-atlantic and trans-pacific sectors will they actually be put on operationally!

YYT also has nonstop service to LHR, at least seasonal.

Do you mean don't not do ? Because that would imply YWG. Used to, to LHR/PIK/CPH/FRA. But now everything is hubbed through YYZ. Only TATL services out of YWG are Icelandic Express seasonally to KEF and any Canadian charter ops, again seasonally, mostly to STN.

If YWG was a little larger, I could see 787 service to LHR, but that's about it.

Great news. Canada is well suited for 787 routes.

Well I have to say... I'm not surprised at all. These are all cities which see 767 service currently I believe, so naturally they will be getting the 787 as well. The only one that might be surprising to some would be Halifax, however we do have service YHZ-LHR which is currently operated by the 767 and when they are all gone it will have to be operated by something else. I suppose however that it was a good time to make such an announcement with the media coverage following the 787's visit to YYZ the past few days. It was good that CEO Calin Rovinescu did confirm that they are at least looking into new routes which could be operated by the aircraft. Hopefully that will put an end to all of those who insist that it won't be used to open up new routes by Air Canada, just cover current ones.

Hell yeah, we might even see the return of AC at GLA and MAN.

I'm more interested by where these aircraft are flying to outside Canada. It's already a given that these 7 cities will see 787 service to LHR. But where else is the question.

I thought the plan was to try and spin quite a few of the 763's off to the vacation carrier they are trying to get up and running?

It looks like the list of where AC flies the 767 from. I hope to see them at YXU doing touch and goes to get the pilots up to speed in the new aircraft. I have seen alot of aircrsft over the years doing such a thing.

Pretty much covers all Canadian cities with international flights ... no offense to AC, but I can't really pinpoint why this is news or how are these 7 cities being played by the media as something significant. It's like saying the new BMW 3 series will be up for sale in ALL 50 states!

just playing up the loyal AC base following the 787 visit to YYZ ?

With the advent of newer more capable simulators, the requirement to do actual aircraft training no longer exists. In fact, except for some instances, that requirement has not been needed for about 10 years.

99% of the time, the first time a pilot sees an "actual airplane", there are passengers in the back!

Yup, could all be Air Canada Express, or Maplestar ... with foreign pilots, and prepubescent flight attendants all making minimum wage ... with all the exAC pilots making twice what they are making right now in Asia, and all the managers in YUL HQ, now unemployed, scratching their heads wondering what happened.

In other words, Air Canada will last longer than cockroaches!

As an Ottawa local, I'm more than pleased to see the 787 will fly out from my home city. Will definitely be taking a ride on it when it's entered into service.

Thanks for the information.

AC were doing touch and goes with their new 777-300's so they can't all be gone, besides please don't take this away from us in London we have so very little as it is now.

Let's say a new type like the 787 becomes operational. Does a pilot not even go for a short familiarization flight on the actual aircraft before transferring to the type with real pax?

To be fair to AC, it wasn't an announcement. It just came out of an interview on board the 788 at YYZ. Obviously a reporter asked which cities would see 788 service, and the AC interviewee rhymed off the existing 767 cities.
