I also remember seeing it at BRU on an ad hoc basis. There is quite a large Moroccan population in Brussels and I even recall at one busy holiday period seeing it at BRU twice in one day! This would have been about 5 or 6 years ago when I worked at a call centre near the airport.

It doesn't have a set schedule. It is operated on an ad-hoc and seasonal basis to accommodate spikes in VFR and TO traffic.

YUL is all 767.

Quoting blueflyer (Reply 3):
YUL is all 767.

Out of curiosity, is the 787 going to be replacing the 767 on some of the routes? A different thread was speculating airlines that might operate the 787 to JFK and I suggested airlines that currently operate the 767 there (LOT and LAN) and forgot to through RAM into the mix. Don't mean to throw the tread off-course, but just a thought that popped into my head with mention of the 767.

It's the primary aircraft for the king of Morocco. When it's not needed by the king AT uses the 744 on busy routes when additional capacity is required. In the past it was frequently used on busy summer routes from TNG, NDR and OUD to destinations such as ORY, BRU and AMS. Nowadays it's only used on routes from CMN, mainly to ORY, JED and sometimes YUL.

I've seen it in Montreal all summer.. it comes in on Fridays or at least has throughout most of the summer. In winter it's all 767 service. I'm not sure if it is still scheduled for YUL at the moment, the last I heard it had stopped.
