Air Transat A332 At MCO Yesterday

Sun Oct 05, 2003 11:25 pm

I just this on flytecomm.com. If I would have known this ahead of time I would have watched it land over my apartments.

Usually Air Transat flys the A310 and occassionally the L1011 into MCO from either YYZ or Montreal. Is this the first time Air Transat flew the A332 here?

I am assuming that the loads are good and maybe its because the loads are not that good going over the pond and the A310 is a better aircraft. Keep watching, you maybe surprised this winter!!

With TS phasing out the L1011's, you'll see more of the A330's at MCO.

Actually the inaugural TS 332 revenue flight a few years ago was a YYZ-MCO routing!  Big thumbs up

(Trivial nonsense).

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

It will be cool to see come in, though if the A332 replaces the A310 and L1011 on that route totally that will suck.

The Air Transat A310 was the only A310 we get into MCO anymore, I haven't seen Fed Ex fly anymore in here.

The Air Transat L1011 also was the last L1011 we get here. Before I moved here there were two daily ATA L1011s one from IND and one from SJU, but both are now replaced with a 753. I am assuming maybe we will see ATA fly in L1011s for Citrus Bowl charters, but I will be back up in Michigan at that time.

We see one weekly A332 from LTU and I honestly wouldn't be surprised if we eventually occasionally see an A330 from Northwest or USAirways subbing sometime. Northwest used to fly DC-10s here and USAirways currently flys a couple 762s here. Who knows, there was another discussion about LH flying A332s to MCO in the future.
