AC E90s

Thu Sep 22, 2005 1:14 am

Does anyone have any further insight into the routes AC is going to be using their E90s on? Other than FLL amd MCO out of YOW, I can't find any route listings in their timetable.

Thanks for the info. Funny how none of these routes are currently listed on their timetable.

AC will only start receiving the 190's in Nov, with deliveries of 2 or 3 a month. For the introduction phase most of the routes will be close to home (as shows in the sched), wait for the summer 2006 sched to see some of these added routes.

The fleet plan that was released during AC's restructuring had the A320 fleet dropping by 30 aircraft(not referring to 319's & 321's). AC has been planning this for years and you will see that as the E90's are delivered,they will replace a lot of 319 flying,those 319's will then replace 320 flying,which will allow the oldest 320's to leave the fleet. AC's fleet with that of Jazz,will then be better able to adjust capacity to demand on it's routes,without giving up the frequency that allows it to garner higher yields than it's competitors. This is how you level the playing field with the LCC's,otherwise now known in the industry as "The Game Changer". It of course still requires legacy carriers to change or adjust many of their other practices.

Just out of curiosity, does this mean that the loads on 320's are not up to what they could be at on some routes? Considering the 85% load factor, I find this hard to believe.

It seems everyone can be fixated on load factors,when it's a very fine balance of yield and load factor. It would be like saying that you sold an entire flight's seats at an airfare of $1.00 and achieved a 99.9% load factor,so you must be making money. Each and every market is unique and can generate profits if you can find a way to sell most of your seats at higher yielding fares,instead of dumping seats because the aircraft is too large.
