CZ A330 To AMS: When?

Mon Feb 20, 2006 8:18 pm

Does anyone have an idea when CZ will start using their A332s to AMS? There are strange things going on in the schedules on Amadeus: flight CZ345 is a 772, but KL3810 (the very same flight but with KL codeshare) is listed as 330. Which one is it? I remember hearing something about CZ starting A332 services to AMS, but I don't have the dates. Acarsd shows 772 service up until a few days ago. I'll be flying KL3810 on Apr.6, and would like to know what machine to expect.

Amadeus is showing the tripple 7 the whole year round. I don't see them change the AMS flight to an A330 soon.

When I still lived in Holland there were rumors of CZ starting A332 service back than but it never happened. I don't see CZ going to a smaller aircraft to AMS especially not in the summer season when demand increases.

But if anyone can prove otherwise, please let us know. I would love to photograph the A332 in AMS Big grin

Good to hear that the T7's are year round for AMS, I also heard they were going to be replaced by the A332's  Smile

Now CZ please send 777's or A330's down to London, LHR or LGW  cloudnine 

Does anyone know the loads on the AMS flights?

I don't have the numbers but I also remember reading somewhere that the loads are very good and that CZ indicated they want to use the A380 to AMS. So things must be going pretty well for CZ in AMS.

Isn't LHR CA territory? I thought all those Chinese companies are part of CAAC, the big state corporations.

Awesome, that would make two if it happens (together with MH). Great news for spotters!

I think it is. At least the 777 seems like a better choice on the European flights than the Australia flights that the 330 currently operate.

However, it would be great to see a direct CAN-AMS link without the stopover in PEK. Perhaps the 330 would be better for this purpose. I wonder how many pax that travel all the way from AMS to CAN on the current flight.
Last flight: SAW-CPH on H9 on 02/11/09 - Next Flights: 23/12/09 CPH-AAL on QI, 30/12/09 CPH-LHR on SK, 19/01/10 CPH-CDG-

Isn't the current CZ flight non-stop from CAN? I always thaught the flight was nonstop. Their cargo flights I know fly from PVG but didn't know about their passenger flights...
