BWIA's 737-800's To Toronto

Mon Feb 14, 2000 3:52 am

I think BWIA should not fly their 737-800's to Toronto.Could the 737-800
handle a 6 hour flight well?BWIA did not make a wise choice in aircraft for the
new year.They should of aquired A330's or A340's or tripple 777's for their new
fleet of aircraft.Does anyone know if they are going to replace their L10-11's for
a differnt aircraft?

They do bring the 737-800 into YYZ, I saw it last week, looks really good, much better then that ugly orange coloured L1011.

I think some ex-BA RR 763s would be great replacements for the L15s. The 343/777 would be too large and too expensive.

Why do you think it's a bad choice to use tge 738s to Toronto. They have the range.

All the aircraft you listed would be nice but get real. They only made their first profit in 60 years last year, they can't afford them. Not to mention that they probably could not fill any of these aircraft on their route network. I believe a suitable Tristar replacement would be a 762ER or a A332 (yes I said expensive above. The rumor network seems to point towards the 763 though. (Would be nice to see a 764 also but that fills the gap between the 763 and the 772).

I for a fact know that they are going to replace those L1011 for either A330's or some 777's.

Also i think the 737 could make the journey just fine even if several stops are needed. the idea wasn't to non stop to canada its more like a transit from Jamacia or Antigua or even Miami.

I for a fact know they are not looking at 777s or A330s. I know a few people in the airline and all have said they are leaning towards the 763.
