With all the talk of AC
making a new order for widebodies I came to wonder why AC
didn't keep their 747 Combis for just a little bit longer. It seems they could really use the additional capacity on some of their key routes (YYZ
comes to mind). Were these 747s to expensive to maintain and are there people at AC
who are regretting having retired these awseome planes a bit to early. To me it would have made sense - doesn't mean alot - to keep them until at least they got some 777's or 346HGW's to tide them over.
