Air Canada Adds 2nd Flight To FRA From YUL

Tue Jun 18, 2002 12:48 am

On Aug1,

Air Canada will add a 2nd flight to FRA on a 4 weekly basis. The flight is Air Canda 882, operated by a B767-300ER. The flight will unbelievably depart 1 hour before the other AC874 A330-300.

Like ive said before, AC874 hbas been huge ever since its been started on May1st 1998. The flight started with 5 weekly B767-200er, ot daily B767-300ER to year-round A330-300 service.

Very happy!!

Well see that's a free market at work. AC saw that the demand was there and added more flights, even though the YUL hub is not as big as the YYZ hub. Good news for YUL!

With the success of FRA, in the future we can see a year-round double daily, maybe with LH(I really hope so), and maybe even a route to MUC, for it was being planned before 9/11. I'm very happy too!

Good to see another flight to Star's largest European hub. I just wish Lufthansa would upgrade their YVR flight from a 742 to at least a 744 since I tried getting tickets and the flights were sold out!

There isn't much of a difference in the capacity between a LH B744 and B742. I just think the B744 has more F and J seats! I could be wrong though!

Indeed, the Lufthansa 747-200 has more Y seats than any other plane in the fleet.

742 F8 C51 Y330
7441 F16 C64 Y310
7442 F16 C78 Y274
7443 F16 C99 Y234

Makes perfect sense to run the 200s on the YVR route since it is far from a high yield market.

Second FRA-YUL sounds good - I'm flying on the 875 this Friday and it looks way overbooked in both C and Y.

Rgds,

I would like LH to take over with a B747 of anykind. I sincerely think that Montreal-Munich would work very well with A330/A340 equipment, but with the nearby VIenna hub being taken BY OS in Montreal, I would doubt LH would have an interest in the route, especially niow that OS is flying and doing real well from YUL and YYZ..

Great to see, hoping for more success from Montreal Big grin
