The 767's are not being phased out. Some of the older 200's have been retired, but new 300's were added not too long ago. The 300's will be around for quite a while still, and I think some of the 200's will also stick around for some time.
has acquired some new 767-300s and has expressed interest in adding more. The 767-200ERs are useful for long-range, medium load flights and will likely stay in service with AC
for some time. Some of the short range 767-200s are already in storage, and if flight loads on routes they served do not increase, more of the non-ER 767s will be parked and A-319 and A-320 aircraft will continue to operate these flights.
As well as getting rid of the existing B-747s in the fleet, have also even heard consideration of four to eight 747-400s being added to the fleet for combined cargo/pax capacity some routes could require.
I couldn't believe it when I heard that, but pax travel is not everything, some routes demand more cargo capacity. Don't forget about cargo business. For quite some time, AC
faired well with B-747 Combis.
Many of the A-320s are close to their design life span and will require replacement. With new A-320s? B-737s? Who knows..
There's a lot of uncertainty at AC
right now, all kinds of rumors, decisions and reversals happen that it is hard to follow. Let's all watch the show.
But for now, be content knowing that their fleet isn't totally comprised of Mattel plastic toys yet.
