AC Using 777 On The YYZ-CPH-YYZ Route?

Sun Jul 06, 2014 1:47 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm looking at Flight Aware and I see that Air Canada is using the B777 for the YYZ-CPH-YYZ route today. More specifically AC2083 is operated by 77W. Is that a regular thing?

Regards,

Vio

Looking at AC's website, the flight number from YYZ-CPH is 882 and operated by an A330. I'm confused... Is this a charter flight?

Quoting vio (Thread starter):

Regarding the aircraft, it's probably a substitution. The flight is explainable. July 4th's AC882 left CPH at 13:54 with a different type of aircraft than the day before, thus July 5th's AC883 became today's flight AC2083.

It arrives all the time   (I'm willingly exaggerating it ) on the YUL-GVA-YUL route. No later than yesterday, AC834 got cancelled and only left YUL today twelve hours later as AC2034.

Btw, if you get confused, this is a great to find out: http://www.aircanada.com/en/travelin...veller/flightstatus/index.html#300

I am not sure what's going on with the A330s lately ... a string of bad luck with maintenance delays. Both CPH and GVA are scheduled as A330s, and yes ... there was a Triple sub for the CPH A330 cancellation.

I do know that with the B787 delivery delays, everything else is running at near max utilisation and there is little room to catch up for these maintenance delays.
Just because I stopped arguing, doesn't mean I think you are right. It just means I gave up!

Last year it was the same with the 763, several delays and cancellation to GVA.

Not to mention AC even has CS-TFT (EuroAtlantic 763) running around helping out.
