What equipment does Air Transat use to theor flights to Europe, after that whole ETOPS thing. Do they use the A330s and if so are the flights loger, or have they switched to L1011s? Specifically LGW.

Thanks.

They made few charter flights passed summer YYZ-WAW. Few times they were using A330 and few times L1011s

They used 757s mostly through NCL, but also the odd L1011 and A330  Smile

Depends where you are leaving from and were you are going. For instance the flight between Montreal and Toulouse is in 757. YMX-CDG would be A330 and L1011.

Have a nice flight is you are boarding...

I will be leaving on the 20th of December YYZ-LGW. I wonder what aircraft it will be..... I hope it's an L1011, I have never flown on this type and I really want to before they are retired. I don't think I'll every have another chance.....

What do you think? Which will it be?

TS uses their entire fleet for Europe flights. You could be on the A332, A333, A310, 752, L15 or L10. They mix and match alot. LGW could be anything.

After the ETOPS restrictions, they rerouted their remaining A330's to fly more domestic and L-1011's more Europe. But even an ETOPS restricted A330 is more efficient to Europe than an L-1011 flight able to fly more direct. Indeed, the A330's are now back on transatlantic flights.




Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

Yep LGW gets A330 and Tristar both 100's and 500's with the odd 757 and A310 thrown in for good measure, although I havent caught a 757 recently

Well, numerically speaking, it probably will be! The L-1011 is TS's most numerous type!
