Just wondering, but will they keep Canadian's 763 sorties to Sao P. and Bs.As?

Cheers,

yesteray i was at YWG spotting and saw AC CRJ's there. It was very intesting how they pulled up to the jetway. I also saw more flights to ORD,DEN and the CP 320.(Proud wings livery) that was really cool. AC just added 7 more Trand\s Border flights out of YWG. 5 to ORD, and 2 to DEN.

With regards to Tailscrapers questions about Brazil, I don't think that they will be stopping that route, although I did here that they may give it to VARIG, to operate for the Star Alliance, and also that the Brazilian government was giving VASP's old route to YYZ and JFK to TAM of Brazil, but nothing is for sure.


It's nice to see that AC is expanding, it's been a long time since we have seen new routes to overseas destinations from Air Canada. Lets hope that this trend continues and that now that the two airlines are combined as one strong airline, that we can stop fighting the local competition, and take on some of the major overseas ones.
