I think that Air Canada has switched aircrafts for the winter months to B744...

The 744 is standard A/C for YUL-CDG, it is only recently that they went with the A330.

hi slawko
exactly one year ago I flew YUL-CDG with AC on an A343 ;a few months before the standard airliner was the old 747-200,and it had been the standard airliner on this route for a while...then came the A333...
Anyway I'm more than happy to see the AC 744 as standard on the CDG route

It would appear that AC are using both aircraft on the YUL/CDG sector

Mon, Tue, Wed ex YUL is a A330-300
Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun ex YUL is a 747-400 combi
