I'm not sure whether it's specific at these Pandemic times, but I notice that since a while their CVG-GDL-QRO-GDL-CVG flights (982/981) are operated by AeroUnion and their A306s.Jump to post
Perhaps was it already mentionned but European airlines then also flew to the Far East by heading west through ANC, like ZRH-ANC-NRTJump to post
By the end of the year they plan to have 10 -600s converted to freighter, however no large cargo door will be installed. Its founder is also "confident that demand for cargo flights will continue to outpace supply even as passenger flights resume." Stoddart says that with the seats removed...Jump to post
Absolutely gutted about the old [and tech-prone] 747s leaving the fleet, but hey, they were on borrowed time really.... On the other hand very happy to see them slowly resuming service. They are a pretty good company I find, and I enjoyed my flight with them some time ago. The 747s fate was decided...Jump to post
C-GOFW is listed as a A330E, not a X version. Will this be the first A330 enhanced for AC?

Very interesting, including that Ireland service with an A300... Could it do it nonstop? Just barely.

It looks like to be a GE-powered -300, and was filmed June 18th by a local spotter.
It's their fourth and is already at YUL after arriving from XFW about an hour ago. Three more are expected, of which two are manufactured and painted. They'll be useful to fill the A310 space or operate on flights that won't warrant an A330 yet. A321 -271NXLR 9419 C-GOIK Air Transat delivery 01jul20...Jump to post

I also flew on a Sun Country DC-10 that was brutal I believe it was 3-4-3. I remember how odd it was to see that configuration on a DC-10 because on my many previous DC-10 flights I never seen that tight a seating. That was the configuration usually used by charter airlines, up to 380 seats in Y. S...Jump to post

Edit: Maybe I should add it entered service today.
On a side note: why was Delta not interested in the A300 fleet? Too close to the 767-300A? Would have complemented the A310 fleet well. Maybe the leases were too expensive? On one hand, what would it have added for DL to have another type to its fleet (just 13), on the other, perhaps was it determi...Jump to post
I think both the -200s and -300s flew TATL ultimately. You're right that JFK-HAM, BRU, OSL (FBU) saw them, and the A310 also operated DTW-LHR, JFK-ZRH, and JFK-MXP (and FCO at times). There were I think 15 A313s and 16 A312s if I remember correctly. Not sure about the cabin interiors being configur...Jump to post
As I was browing through CP's DC-10s pictures I saw these two and couldn't actually remember how it was used. I know it's related to the Millenial bug, but where did it flew as such during these two days? Were there actually passengers on board partying?

Could they do YYZ-GLA/MAN/DUB with a full load or just ex-YHZ routes ?

One of the worst aircraft ever was their MD11 configured with 409Y. The complaints we got on that one, oh my they were bad. Seat pitch was like 27" or 26" I think. Correct me if anyone knows better.

Thanks for the post. I wasn’t aware that Corsair was one of the few airlines that operated all 747 models except the -8. Interesting. Yes, it's a little airline but in 27 years they managed to operate 23 different 747s with five different versions. https://www.planespotters.net/airline/Corsair Saw ...Jump to post
Flight EY8203 is on its way on the mentionned route. What could be the reason at this time of the pandemic?
AC has revised its summer flight operations.
https://www.routesonline.com/news/38/ai ... f-10jun20/
First day's cities are CDG, TLS, LGW and FLL.
https://www.routesonline.com/news/38/ai ... july-2020/
Edit: on some of the French routes liste, TS will be alone this summer without any competition from AC.
From YUL and YYZ, flights to 13 European destinations will be proposed, along with five Sun destinations and an unknown number of domestic routes.
