I doubt it. It is too light. There was a VW Touareg TDi towing a Jumbo based contraption. However, it was modified and had several tons of ballast.

The basic 737 frame has proven over many years to be tough and reliable. Anything that has come to light has been remedied. One thing that does strike me, though. No overwing emergency exit slides. https://www.standard.co.uk/news/world/passengers-injured-in-scramble-to-flee-after-man-makes-bomb-thr...Jump to post
Well the 332 is almost 4 metres longer than a 763 (and 2m longer than a 788) and is 8 abreast vs 7 in the 763. Add all that up and you’re talking 245ish pax in a 332 in an AC mainline config vs 211 for the 763...not to mention a much bigger available cargo payload. Well, if they can manage to fit 4...Jump to post
Yup and like I said a few pages back that a 332 in mainline configuration is the perfect 763 mainline replacement. A modest capacity bump from the 763 while not using what's been said by others on a.net as a "sub-optimal usage of a 788" for the likes of YOW-LHR. Isn't the A332 a bit too h...Jump to post

You should have checked before you arrived at the airport. This is a problem entirely of your own making and nothing to do with the quality of Qatar Airways.

What it is surprising to see PRG on the list of A321 destinations. The distance from PRG to YUL is 3360nmi. Can a 199 seater A321LR do it against the wind? This is only 40nm further than NCE.

Indeed if the frequencies listed above are instead of the A310, this is a capacity cut on several routes. Were their TATL operations not (sufficiently) profitable?

The big wild card would be whether YYZ-YYC-NRT-YYC-YYZ is flown by a 787 or A330. The great circle distance from YYC to NRT is 4300 nm. Does a 230t A333 have the legs to do it?
