YYZ Gets Some New International Equipment

Thu Sep 25, 2003 11:32 pm

Mark these days on your calender, they might not be as big as the Concord, but still different than the norm. I saw these posted on http://www.yyznews.com a very informative website that is very accurate. I guess you would say unoffical, but i know the rumours have been flying about these aircraft....he we go!

KLM is skeded to bring the 777 in starting November 5th 2003, replacing the MD-11 currently on route, arrival time is 13:50 these days,

Lufthansa is replacing the current A340 with the newly aquired A330's, with a new departure time of 18:15 so they have to arrive earlier. This is starting Oct. 26th, and ALSO note that on December 3, 5, and 7th the computer shows the A340-600 on this route, MARK THOSE ON YOUR CALENDER!

As well, starting on Oct. 26th Air France will be replacing the usual A340 with the A332 again, the arrival time these days is 15:35.

I know i will be out for these days so I hope to see you out before they switch back to the larger aircraft....so i guess no more KLM 743's...Darn

The KLM 777 will really be welcome, but I will definitely miss the MD-11 and the 747's. That means the Douglas wide-bodies will be much more rare at YYZ, which is unfortunate.

Too bad Lufthansa only comes after dark, so we will not get a very good view of the A340-600.  Sad

Who do you think you're winking at??? I'll be at Fedex, you can be at T1.  Smile

I skimmed through your message and didn't notice the new times for LH! That's good news for sure.

Talk about a blast from the past, I had completely forgotten about Brian Dunn and his YYZNEWS publication. True, he is most informative, and his publication, YYZNEWS has been "around the airport perimeter" for quite some time. I hope this very nice gentleman (who tells it like it is!) continues to publish his excellent newsletter for years to come. The old WG crew centre used to have copies to peruse, and it was very popular.

I'm glad I clicked on to his website (and thank you, for I didn't even know it existed), due to the ad for the Aviation and Airline Collectibles show on Oct 04. It's usually pretty good, in terms of inventory for sale.

Good to hear LH is finally scheduling its YYZ-FRA flight at a more convenient time. I was wondering when they were going to get around to doing that.

Canadi>nBoy, I think you are thinking of Jack Wilson and his "Airport News" from the 90's and possibly earlier. I don't believe YYZ News was ever in print form.

LOL, ah, oui, "Airport News" it was. Thank you for clearing that up, CG. This is what happens to the brain once you reach 39 (and "climbing") and have flown too many cycles and consumed far too much wine. So why is it that Brian Dunn and his pic seem so familiar to me? Never mind, the ramblings of a confused mind.

Anyway, I'm glad for the link to YYZNEWS; I will most certainly visit the site from this point on.

P.S: Anyone know whatever became of Mr. Wilson?

Airport News unfortunately ended with the passing of Mr. Jack Wilson. If memory serves me correctly, this happend in about 1996 to 1998. Jack was a colourful character to say the least! To note, his type of publication would not do well at all in the environment of the GTAA. Publications started afterwords have had to tread lightly so to speak in order to avoid litigation from the GTAA.

Yes, Mr. Wilson was indeed a colourful character, to say the least. He had the balls to speak up and challenge the bureaucrats.

"To note, his type of publication would not do well at all in the environment of the GTAA. Publications started afterwords have had to tread lightly so to speak in order to avoid litigation from the GTA".

Too bad. Political Correctness, watching your P's and Q's, treading lightly on the political ground, playing it safe, not stirring up controversy and shit where it deserves to be stirred, not speaking up and out, not making noise. The suppression the individual ideology and adherence to the collective "machine". The suppression of ones self. Producing literal food to be consumed for and by the masses, and appeasing the mainstream. Selling out to the highest, and sometimes lowest, "bidder". In short, conforming. a word and mindset I despise. I truly do admire the shit-disturbers of this world when their causes are sound and justified.

I need a cigarette.

Grant, thanks for the info!

The LH 332 (PW powered) are on short term leases until their new RR 333's arrive, so this may be the only winter we get the LH 332. I guess LH winter loads to YYZ are low.....they've always maintained a 343 in the past.

It's odd that the LH 346 is only coming in 3 days....must be route proving flights soon after delivery!



I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

Yyz717, oh cool thanks for the info didn't know the LH332 were short term, i will be out with my cameara to get some shots. With the A346 I think they are going around to different cities to showcase the new aircraft and test its performance on different routes. As you know this is a fairly new aircraft and i am sure that is what Cathay did. I just wish that we could be posting something about AC getting their, can we call them A345's NG's?!

I know first hand that the flights are full, i know someone at LH, you know a sister of a friend at AC, but she says they are full, could be something like LH is using the A343 on a different route with higher margins...Could drive the demand up for that flight and make more money now that there are less seats?

GRRRRRRRRR

Canadi>nBoy, I would like to see a new newspaper hitting the YYZ scene, although I wouldn't hold my breathe with respect to the style that Jack Wilson established for his Airport News. Some have come after that and failed for various reasons.
