767 Trans-Pacific?

Mon Dec 19, 2005 1:35 am

What airlines fly the 767 trans-pacific? And, what routes?

Would a 763ER or 762ER work for lower-demand point to point routes? DEN-NRT or PHX-NRT?

I know that the 767 is the most popular trans-atlantic a/c. But, I'm guessing it might be 4th or 5th across the pacific?

a few 767 transpacific routes that I know of are


AC

YVR-HNL-SYD

NZ

AKL-HNL
AKL-NAN-LAX
AKL-APW-TBU-LAX
AKL-RAR-PPT-LAX

CO
HNL-GUM

I think that 767 is generally regarded as too small and too slow for most transPacific routes and , even at it's best it is still a relatively short range a/c ( better than 737 and 757 but way shorter range than 744 and 777 variants)

AC flys their 763s on quite a number of routes depending on the season:

YVR-PVG
YVR-PEK
YVR-KIX
YVR-NGO
YVR-ICN

The 762ER has a 6,600nm maximum range so she could do DEN-NRT, in theory (winds in one direction might hurt that, though).

And the 763ER has a 6,105nm maximum range, so she could do SEA-NRT, for example.

However, in three class config they're a little light on passenger load, and airlines like UA use the 777s to tool around Asia between runs to and from the US.

When UA offered around-the-world service in 1995, a 763ER did at least the DEL-LHR portion. She could have done HKG-DEL, LHR-JFK and JFK-LAX, as well. They'd only have needed the 744 for LAX-HKG.

AC also flies the 767 between:

YVR-PEK
YVR-PVG
YVR-ICN
YVR-KIX

(and possibly more)

There are also a number of 767 flights from HNL to Japan.

I think the reason AC have so many 767s cross the pacific is a shortage of newer birds with the range needed. It will be nice to see the new metal in AC colours. I still don't beleive WestJet flies a 737 to Hawaii from YVR.

Quoting YOWza (Reply 6):
