EgyptAir To Canada

Fri Jul 21, 2000 8:16 am

On July 19th, EgyptAir received a licence to serve Canada. Does anyone have preliminary info on start dates, city/cities to be served, and proposed schedule and routing?
Cairo was on Air Canada's wish list for the year 2000. Anyone know if they will begin competitive service on the route or if a codeshare will be proposed?

Don't know about EGYPTAIR but I would guess that they will start with YYZ, and or YUL probably with the 767....

As for Air Canada, they don't have the planes, nor do they have the man power to fly to Cairo or any new major cities right now......

767s

Does Egyptair still have 767s? I know they lost one in the crash, and then another one was heavily damaged on landing or something (I can't remember). I thought they only had 2 763s in their fleet. Anyone know?

Hi,

Wow, this is exciting, I think they will use their B767 from CAI-YUL-YYZ, since there is a large Egyptian population in both cities. Anyone know if Royal Jordanian has any intentions of coming back?

All EgyptAir's fleets 767 are all gone!! No longer use 767. All they have 777's and Airbus 300,320,321 & 340.

SU-GAO took off from Budapest as MS881 at 16h00 CET bound for AMS. So at least one 767 is still in service with Egyptair.

By the way, they'd better not put that krap in that area! And if they do, I'm gonna team up, boycott the route and put it out of service!!!!

According to an MS's rep in Toronto, they will start YUL-CAI in January. A recent issue of a travel agencies trade mag reported they were going to fly YUL-JFK-CAI twice a week (Wed/Fri) in November. YYZ might come later.

Wow, where have they been for the last 15 years, don't they know that YYZ is the Center of the Universe?? Why would they want to go to YUL???

HEHEHEHE JUST KIDDING GUYS, I HOPE I HAVEN"T OFFENDED ANY YUL'ers OUT THERE, I KNOW MONTREAL HAS A BIG EGYPTIAN POPULATION......BESIDES WE HAVE NO MORE ROOM AT YYZ, SO THEY CAN TAKE THEIR TIME....I personally hope that it is still a few years before they start crashing their planes into Lake Ontario.....
