A few major areas still missing from YYZ -Sweden -Finland -Russia AC serves YYZ-CPH codesharing with Star partner SK with easy connections to Sweden and Finland so demand would have to increase significantly for any direct service.

AA is ending LAX-YYZ flights. WS has two non-stops a day using 737-800s. (DL code-share) AC has six non-stops a day, two 787-9s and four MAX-8s. (UA code-share) If AA leaves, indeed there will be no American carriers on the route. It has been fun to watch DL in YYZ, as they have gone from "who...Jump to post
According to a news release back in May; BA was looking at a big 777X order.....
Tokyo Narita (NRT) Rio De Janeiro (GIG) As far as I know, AC currently operates this route YYZ-NRT unless it's been recently cancelled. AC previously operated YYZ- GIG now codeshares through UA and CM. The route became YYZ-YYC-NRT after they opened YUL-NRT. YYZ-HND remains however. The wiki page fo...Jump to post

2. Cut all bilateral relations with countries that support Saudi Arabia, including the U.A.E. Revoke all landing rights and overflight rights of the airlines from these countries.
Hopefully this should pass quickly - if past disputes like the Canada-UAE airline dispute 7-8 years ago is any indication how this conflict will resolve itself.

Somewhat confused here...I thought Bombardier still owned 50% of C-Series. Airbus re-branding it as the A220 so did Bombardier give up their name on the aircraft? :confused: Bombardier has a 31% stake in the programme. As for the naming, it is a bit like the GE90 being a GE engine despite Snecma ha...Jump to post

Where will the four A330's come from? I suppose they will be second hand. Egyptair 4 A333s will exit their fleet during 2019, so it might be those aircrafts Air Canada get?

Yes DL has intended the the A339NEO to replace its 767s but looks like they have to put in a lot more Delta One cubicles to deal the the extra space.... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airbus_A330neo#Specifications I am confused by your assertion on Delta's layout of a 339 since the Annual Report say...Jump to post
Rising fuel prices might even make a case for the A330NEO, if it is available sooner than the 787s. Just for example. Say the fuel consumption of your current plane is 100, the A330 is 83 and the 787 is 80. If you can get the A330 4 years earlier, the 787 can not compensate this in a service life o...Jump to post
Then I saw the 737-MAX10 seating very close to the 767 and felt the MAX10 could replace the 767 in certain areas. They don’t have the same seating for the same type of mission. Maybe a domestic configured 737-10 has the same seating as an Intl 763, but that wouldn’t solve any part of the problem fo...Jump to post
Always thought before that the 787 was intended to replace the 767. That was of course before I saw the range of the 787 overlapping the 77W on many routes (and 772 in seats) and figured it was a new class of airliner. Then I saw the 737-MAX10 seating very close to the 767 and felt the MAX10 could r...Jump to post
Preclearance in YYZ is a wonderful thing, I can agree with that, but either way you're connecting and clearing immigration. Whether that is done in YYZ or ORD, it doesn't really matter. You're just flying AC instead of UA or AA. Connecting through YYZ is far easier than any American hub. Not only i...Jump to post
Looking at Flightaware today 5/4 I noticed that there were numerous YYZ diversions to BUF today, AC, AA DL UA all had flights diverted. There were some thunderstorms in the area and some high winds but it didn't seem bad enough to affect so many flights. Have any other airports accepted diversions ...Jump to post

Each country only has rights to one HND slot. AC has Canada’s and ANA has Japan’s.

Does AC fly Toronto-Tokyo? Yes they do and with both NH and AC members of Star Alliance - no real need for NH to fly to YYZ - unless there is a big increase in pax demand.
