Hi All -

My colleague just told me he got bumped from a SFO-YYZ redeye last night because of weight restrictions. I just looked up the flight and it turns out to be a Airbus A319. Do they pack a whole lot of cargo on this route or what?? I've taken plenty of redeyes from SFO-PHL on US' A321 and the 321 has a lesser range than the 319... Any ideas on this folks?

Appreciate it.

Hard to say, since there are lots of variables...

- Did they have an inop aircraft item like an anti-skid which could result in a takeoff or landing weight restriction?

- Did they have an inop aircraft item like a fuel boost pump that necessitated carrying extra fuel?

- Did the YYZ weather require an alternate airport (and the fuel to reach it) be carried?

- Did enroute weather require additional fuel for deviations, or a longer than normal route toavoid weather?

I am aware of the variables that would require a weight restriction - I was hoping for a more precise answer. Perhaps some AC employees know why exactly this would have taken place?

AC754/28May was operated by an A320. As the weather in YYZ was very poor the following morning it looks like a far alternate was carried.

Was he a non-rev? As full revenue passengers are rarely "bumped" with weight restrictions, usually an enroute stop is made instead.

Just because I stopped arguing, doesn't mean I think you are right. It just means I gave up!
