Hello all I was just comparing the distance between YYZ to HKG 6787nm A340-500 vs YYZ to PVG 6176nm A340-300 then just thinking the flight from YVR to SYD 6741nm A340-500 vs YVR to AKL 6121nm A340-300 is very close in proxmity of flying distance. Is it possible AC could introduce the YVR to AKL right of way if they have enough 340-300s to do that route? I know they are using the 340-500 for HKG only because they have two a/c. The AKL service would be nonstop so no need to stop and refuel in HNL for AKL sector. I know when they get their new B777-200LRs and B787-8s soon they will open up AKL later but what if they could open up now or earlier than they anticipate with enough A/C to spare for that route.
your comments are appreciate please.
