With an 84% load factor, there is not much upward revenue potential though. Hence, AC must continue to reduce costs drastically. Anything that can be done to reduce the still-too-high labour costs should be pursued. AC remains relatively inefficient wrt unit costs.

On the call...
They discussed that they lost two 777 slots. They were hopeful to reach an agreement with pilots. Long haul fleet plans: AC isn't looking for used aircraft yet. As rents remain high, AC is hoping that high fuel prices may burst the bubble. AC expects a bankruptcy by other carriers between now an next summer will lead to a bunch of aircraft on the market. AC will wait, hoping for AC lease rates to fall. Expect to see more "North America configured" 763ers and 762ers flying intercontinentally with Air Canada Club clas

According to the ILFC website, Air Canada, is to lease a used A340-300 for a period of 5 years. It seems that the Airbus A340 still has some more years of live in Air Canada's fleet.
|Quoting Cslusarc (Reply 14):|
I'm thinking that AC wants 2-3 more A343s or A345s (or even A346s)
|Quoting YOWza (Reply 17):|
Any idea when AC plans to refit the interiors of the older 767s. I fly YOW - LHR frequently and the 767s I've been on recently have interiors that are simply falling apart.
|Quoting Accargo (Reply 19):|
I believe they will start with the 767-300's then the -200's.
|Quoting Bmacleod (Reply 20):|
I believe the official AC news release specified only the 767-300 were to be refitted with 777-type cabins....

Wow, AC should have an operating profit this year! It has been a while in coming.
