Perhaps they are sending some A320's to Air Canada for maintenance. AC has a large Airbus narrowbody maintenance line in YWG.

JetBlue has been sending its A320s to AC's Winnipeg maintenance base for quite some time now, as has America West.

LiveTV is only in Orlando. JetBlue used to send aircraft to YWG for C checks, but doesn't any more. I think the aircraft are going to YWG for the cockpit door mod.

N504JB flew Winnipeg-Ft Lauderdale early this morning after a 3-day stay. Unsure as to the registration of the inbound A320 that landed in Wpg a few hours ago.

Air Canada Technical Services - Winnipeg does maintenance work on Skyservice A320s, Air Jamaica A320 family aircraft, and USA 3000. America West hasn't been here for a few years, so I assume that contract has been terminated.

Are you sure? I've heard the odd inbound Cactus on the scanner once or twice in a blue moon.

I know that B6 has their DirecTV installed in MCO because i have a picture of their brand new a/c at the facility. But yes B^ does have their MX contract with AC at the facility in YWG.
I Don't know where I am anymore

Sorry... I exaggerated by saying a few "years". What I meant was months. The last recorded movement I have of an America West jet in Winnipeg was

# America West A320 (reg unk) operating HP7810 Phoenix-Winnipeg 04Jun02.

Still, 6 months with no Cactai up here seems a little odd.

Lake Charles is where the C checks take place. That used to be done in Winnipeg, but the contract changed. I think that JetBlue planes go to Winnipeg for the cockpit door mod.

Any chance some of these are charters?
