The Extra Flight By AC On SHA-HKG Tomorrow

Wed Feb 14, 2001 8:38 pm

I was surprised to see that Air Canada is going to fly Shanghai-Hong Kong for the one and only one opportunity tomorrow (15 Feb). Inbound flight will arrive at 2055 as AC7001, but I was unable to find the outbound one.

Is this going to be a 767? I guess they're flying from Shanghai for aircraft maintenance. Anybody has any more info on this?

Thanks

Its the PM in a 744. According to the news he's with a group of 600. Not sure if they have gone back to Canada or there will be two aircraft. It departs on the 18th

This would be Prime Minister Chretien and his business and government entourage. They are on a trade mission to China and the news showed that he arrived there in a B744 of Air Canada.

Shouldn't you be at work???

Anyway, I believe a 767-300 was the first to have full AC titles.
