As a side note, Why when you fly to SYD on AC do they route you through LAX and then codeshare on a UA 744, but return is a 763 direct to YVR. How did that aircraft get there? and why not fly on their own metal out of YVR on an A330/340.
|Quoting SLCUT2777 (Reply 2):
Keep in mind Qantas chose not to go with the 772LR since it would not be able to be effective in getting from SYD-DFW
|Quoting ChrisA330 (Reply 6):|
AC operates a YVR-HNL-SYD return daily with a B763. Not sure what you're talking about.
They also operate an A340 in high season.
|Quoting YYZatcboy (Reply 8):|
I was doing pricing for a exchange application, so I went to the AC website to look for fares. I looked at YYZ-SYD. The route it gave me was an AC airbus to LAX then transfer over to a UA 744, and the return was a 763. I was asking first off where the 763 came from which you answered. My second question was why did the website not offer the YVR-HNL-SYD routing as another option, or try to get me to do that way first.
BTW it's cheaper to go though LHR on BA, by about 100 or so CAD. (at least it was when I checked)

She should be able to make it, though there might be some payload restrictions, especially on the westbound(?) flight against the winds...
|Quoting Connies4ever (Reply 1):|
Great Circle Mapper says 15551 km, so I think the LR can do this.

SYD-DFW is 7454nm

Will AC be permitted to fly people SYD-LAX if they aren't connecting onto another AC flight in LAX?
|Quoting Stitch (Reply 16):|
can't remember which city the flight originates and terminates in Canada
|Quoting Zkpilot (Reply 7):|
I don't think however that AC would do such a flight... far more likely a direct flight from YVR or YYC as these 2 airports carry the bulk of Canadian tourists bound for Australia and have excellent connections on to the Middle and East of Canada.

There's been continuous Canadian carrier service Canada-Australia since Canadian Pacific commenced YVR-HNL-NAN-SYD service in 1949,
|Quoting AA777223 (Reply 15):|
How on earth is it possible that the 772LR can't do SYD to DFW at 7454 nm? I know the range of the 772ER is 7700 nm and the LR to over 9000nm. I
|Quoting Gigneil (Reply 23):|
Its standard range is 8400ish nm.
Fitting tanks is not really good for payload.
|Quoting Gemuser (Reply 22):
This is simpley incorrect! YVR-SFO-HNL-Canton Is-NAN-SYD/AKL services were started in 1949 by BCPA an airline jointly owned by Oz, NZ, Canada & UK. CP & QF service started in 1952/3 when BCPA was broken up.
CP own plane service to Oz/NZ stopped in the late1980s/early1990s when QFs to YVR also stopped.(I don't have exact dates). From then on CP flew YVR-HNL & YYZ-HNL, QF flew SYD-HNL and NZ flew AKL-HNL. Schedules were coordinated and all four aircraft were on the ground together at HNL, exchanged pax then departed for home.
This continued until NZ joined *Alliance and pulled out. CP then sent one aircraft on from HNL to AKL 2 or 3 times a week. The arrangement with QF continued until the AC take over when it was terminated and AC commenced own plane service to SYD.
|Quoting Viscount724 (Reply 26):|
You are also not quite correct re British Commonwealth Pacific Airlines. Canada had no involvement in BCPA
|Quoting Gemuser (Reply 27):|
If this is correct, then I stand corrected! I will check with the author and editor of the BCPA corporate history, but relying on memory alone(admittedly becoming more dangrous as time goes on) I thought the share holdings were something like Oz 40%, Canada 30%, NZ 20%, UK 10%. Maybe that was an early proposal.
I guess we will have to call this one a draw!

..not many Australians want to visit Canada in the middle of the Canadian winter...
Not true actually. There is a relatively large market of Aussies who come to ski Canada in our winter.
|Quoting Accargo (Reply 18):|
There is a reason AC announced YYZ-LAX-SYD, it's all about profitiblity, it just isn't there on a non-stop YYZ-SYD.
