Do you think that TS will addopt the same philoshpy and buy some "ROCK SOLID" 767 like they bought the L-1011's? I think this is the reason that they have been able to stay profitable over the years and most of all stay in business. As well TS has been able to offer competitive rates over the years. If they can get like half of the fleet owned, this will help in the long run. I think Neil is right, keep the L's as long as possible, run them into the ground further...I was on C-FTSW and its in bad shape on the inside, but hey, i got home and i had fun riding the classic. Maybe these free aircraft can make money to purchase a sllightly mature 67 with lots of life left in it. Look at Air Canada's 762's, the low 600 fin #'s....they are the work horse of domestic travel in Canada now. For AC, atleast in my time, the 67 has been the most versitile and succsessful aircraft for them. GO BOEING, It makes sense if the price is right.
Sorry Captian, I don't think the 777 is a posibility right now....maybe in the long run, OR, if they try and make the YYZ-DEL flight work, a 777-2LR could be in the works? Or even YYZ-SYD??
Drive it like you stole it!
