AC 876 Recent Delays.. .why?

Wed Mar 13, 2013 1:23 am

Noticed that AC 876 (YYZ-FRA) is consistently delayed past few weeks by an hour or more. And the flight was cancelled today (Mar 12). Not a great bet if one has a connection.

Any reason why this particular flight could be delayed so consistently? Is it because it is one of the very late departures and the delays are cascading?

Thanks

FRA Currently Closed Due To Snow (by aloges Mar 12 2013 in Civil Aviation)

And on a related note, AC 877 (FRA-YYZ) is now diverting to YYT as we speak.
Next flights: YQM-YOW-YOW / YQM-YYZ-CPH-YYZ-YQM / YQM-YUL-LYS-BRU-YUL-YQM / YQM-PUJ-YQM

Actually, AC876 is operating today. It is a B77W, to clear the backlog from other cancellations, and is forecast to arrive at FRA 2 minutes early.

Only 2 of AC's 5 departures from FRA on Tuesday appear to have operated (YOW and one YYZ flight), and they were both 5 or 6 hours late due to snow that closed FRA airport for much of the day resulting in cancellation of dozens of flights.. The other 3 flights to YYZ/YUL/YYC were cancelled. Monday night's YYC-FRA A333 (AC844) diverted to AMS and appears to be spending the night before continuing to FRA Wednesday morning.

Re AC876 delays, looking at the Flightradar24 site, it appears the 77W that operates AC876 YYZ-FRA is usually the aircraft that operates AC032 PEK-YYZ with a scheduled ground time at YYZ of 3:45.
