Perhaps it is cheaper to have their work done in Asia than in Canada. Besides, with all the work coming in from US and DL
, it may be worth more to pay to have AC
's fleet done somewhere else and take in new customers. One of the concerns with ACTS was its reliance on Air Canada. Now that they have new and large customers, it will benefit ACE
thanks to ACTS's value, especially since they are going to spin it off next year.
Perhaps I am wrong here, but AC
aircraft would have priority when in mx, and that could cause problems when customers don't get their aircrafts or engines back in time. This was a major problem back in the 1990s when AC
did work for UPS. UPS was very angry that AC
couldn't get their engines out in time, and AC
eventually lost that contract.

Something like 30 of the older A320's will disappear
is only getting rid of a few A320s. AC
has something like 48 A320s. They are not getting rid of the majority of the fleet!
They cancelled the last 2 or 3 A321s on order, and I don't think they are getting rid of more than 3 or 4 A319s in the coming years. Maybe someone has the exact numbers.
