This has me thinking. This is very likely the third hull loss - crash? - at YHZ since 2004. The other are MK 1602 in 2004 (that's two 747s!) and AC 624 in 2015. YHZ is not such a busy airport. In 2017 it ranked 8th in Canada by passenger traffic, but not even in the top 20 by aircraft movements. YH...Jump to post

I wonder if competition from YVR has an impact on this. There are 4-5 daily flights from YVR to HGK direct (three different carriers) plus numerous 1-stop options with major Chinese/Japanese/Korean airlines. YVR is only an easy two hour drive away.Jump to post
Interesting. I wonder what types of routes AC could run from YYZ to Western Europe that wouldn't warrant a widebody? It would seem most of Western Europe is in range? Might be really interesting on some longer very thin routes especially in the summer with less winds.Jump to post
I highly doubt the 797 is ready for service before the 767s need to be replaced. I wouldnt be surprised tosee a mix of cheap 2nd hand A330ceos and maybe some older 788s from mainline. I know they've said that they are interested in keeping capital costs lower with all of the recent output on a/c. Bu...Jump to post
LCCs and leasure airlines like AirTransat are gonna make a killing/put real price pressure on TATL/sun flights with these birds.
Curious how the MAX10 will compare.

The first destination of WS 787's? That was my initial thought. They are unveiling a new livery later this week. Heard rumors it might coincide with new routes or new class of service on board.[/quote] It makes sense. There is likely good demand there and I can't think of another carrier that would...Jump to post
The first destination of WS 787's?Jump to post
I just wonder what will eventually replace those Rouge 767's; they are starting to get up there in age. I wonder (but kinda doubt) if AC would order 787's with maybe a lease back on a bunch of them to lower capital costs OR go with something like new A330ceos or neos with lower capital costs. Maybe ...Jump to post
Does this indicate they are taking options on some additional 789s? I thought the original order was for 29 with 13 options. Wikipedia says the current fleet is 24. The 5 this year brings them to 29. So the deliveries in 2019 would be some of the options? Or have I missed something? The 24 includes...Jump to post

SIN and BKK would be great. I just wonder how these would do? There are so many one stop connections to these cities through Asia. But I guess Canadian travelers do seem to heavily favour Canadian carriers so it might not be much of an issue if they're focusing on Canadians. With how AC has been exp...Jump to post
Just an interesting story I came across. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/bombardier-downsview-airport-for-sale-1.4486212 Apparently they are hoping to get about 900million CAD from the sale if the developer can get the rights to put some mixed used buildings. Another story says that they were ...Jump to post
Also why does the 779 have a smaller exit limit? It is larger, isn't it? Already answered a few times. 77W has 5 exits (Not sure about the exact type) per side, 779 has 4 per side (It doesn't have the overwing exit). Although, like a few people already mentioned, you can add the 5th door on each si...Jump to post

TPE-HKG is 502 miles and has many, many widebodies. For example, 3 different airlines flew 744s on that route today, some more than one. Not true for passenger configured.

I THINK you can do this in HKG with the various ferry services. You can land in HKG and not go through Hong Kong immigration. You can catch a ferry to macau or another Chinese city as long as you have the proper passport/visa.Jump to post

There's another article from the Toronto Star.
Today is Canada's 150th birthday. We have solved all of our issues and this is what we're now dealing with. We have a national satire crisis where when we read a news headline we can no longer distinguish news from satire.

It would be nice if they could get a few younger frames for the next few years until the 787s come online. It would help with the mechanical issues and let them expand a bit earlier and learn to fly long haul to a destination that isn't LGW.Jump to post
