Ansett-Air Canada B767 Rego

Thu Apr 26, 2001 4:15 pm

Ansett will be getting some B767s from Air Canada. Does anyone know the registration numbers? And would they be internally refurbished into Ansett standards?

Regards
Jimmy

PS Just saw on channel 10 news that a "Canada air" (I don't know how can they be so unprofessional) 767 for Ansett made an emergency landing in Sydney ealier today... They called it "Another embarrassment for Ansett"... Well, was it Ansett's pilot??

I don't know what registration numbers, but I'm hoping its soon.
It shouldn't have been AN's pilots

The crew on the Air Canada 763 leased by AN at the moment are AC crew. Likewise the cabin crew are also AC crew.

Are these aircraft B767-300s? Moreover, are they bring sold outright or are they being leased? and finally, when are they expected to be delivered?

I think they are 767-300s (ER??). They are being leased to Ansett by Air Canada...

Air Canada B763ER

Fri Apr 27, 2001 10:12 am

GREAT ARTICLE! I LOVE IT! : )

Actually, these are suppost be CP crew operated under AC name. As of now they still have not merged the work force yet. Therefore all flight numbers that starts with 3 and looks like AC3XXX are operated by CP crew, and they are all ER versions which stops in Honolulu from Canada. I hope they can be delievered ASAP. And does anyone know that what will AC use to replace those B763ERs? Or maybe AC just have surplus of aircrafts?

AC is getting another 4 brand new 763ER, and 4 new A330-300's to replace these 3 planes as well as a couple of 762's that are parked. The reason they're getting rid of those 763's is that they were the short term leased aircraft they picked up for capacity last year. I believe they are actually ex-ANZ aircraft.

AC B763ER

Fri Apr 27, 2001 10:58 am

Actually, I just remember something, I was flying CP's B763ER from YVR to YUL under AC's name. And if u check those aircrafts, they r new to AC and have 4 doors on the sides. I remember seeing there were lotta Spanish on the aircraft. So I guess those must be from a South American Airlines, am I right?
