Yes! Exactly like you said, it was a diversion from NY.

Looking forward to seeing the type on regular service to YYZ, though.

First Scheduled A350 in YYZ?

What do you think could be the 1st scheduled A350 flight in YYZ?

Some have mentioned IB, but personally I find it unlikely in the short term.

What about CX? Probably for their 2nd daily flight. Or the LH flight from MUC?

Looking forward to reading about your thoughts on this.
