AC 777LR At YYC - June 23

Tue Jun 19, 2007 10:42 pm

The first of Air Canada's 777LR's will be making a stop at YYC on Sat. June 23. I believe it arrives at 5.00 and leaves at 8.00.

Do any local people know the best place to watch this bird come in?

Why the stop? Just a demo/goodwill flight for AC staff?

Maybe a silly question, but is that AM or PM? I know a few friends who would be very eager to see it come in and they would be pissed if I gave them the wrong time of the day!

From what I can see, the 777LR's schedule for (most of...) July will be the following:

1 YYZ-NRT AC001 1400-1550+1 (12:50)
2 NRT-YVR AC004 1900-1130 (8:30)
2 YVR-NRT AC003 1330-1505+1 (9:35)
3 NRT-YYZ AC002 1705-1550 (11:45)
4 No flying scheduled
5 YYZ-PEK AC031 1430-1540+1 (13:10)
6 PEK-YYZ AC032 1730-1815 (12:05)
6 YYZ-LHR AC858 2325-1110+1 (6:45) **starts June 30
7 LHR-YYZ AC857 1300-1535 (7:35)

From July 31, with the addition of the second 77L, both planes will fly YYZ-HKG daily.

Any additions and/or corrections?
Next flights: YQM-YUL-YVR-YUL-YQM / YQM-YYZ-HKG-DXB-BCN-YUL-YQM

Sorry if this question has been raised before, but why is AC so much focused on YYZ - LHR with newer planes?

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but I assume it is one of AC's most profitable and busiest international routes. A lot of business travel and competition exist on that route so they want to offer a higher quality of product.

Are you sure this is a 777-200LR and not a -300ER? AC's internal website refers to their delivery flight of their 4th 777 on Friday to YEG. It will then be making stops for similar employee events in YYC and YWG on Saturday and in YHZ on Sunday. However I'm not sure whether it's AC's 3rd 777-300ER or their 2nd -200LR. Can anyone confirm?:

Following covers the 4 employee events this weekend (subject to possible change in the event of any last minute delivery delays):

Friday, June 22 in Edmonton from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Air Canada Cargo on 6th Ave & Airport Service Road.
Saturday, June 23 in Winnipeg from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Air Canada Building, 2450 Saskatchewan Ave.
Also, Saturday, June 23 in Calgary from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Air Canada Maintenance Hangar 101, 8050-22nd ST NE.
Sunday, June 24 in Halifax from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Air Canada building, 601 Barnes Drive, Halifax Stanfield Airport.

I received this as second hand information so I guess I could be wrong, however I was quite sure that the 4th 777 would be an LR. Also the LR is the latest one to be test flown by Boeing.

There is a good viewing parking lot off of McKnight Blvd at the south side of the airport. Really good viewing if the aircraft arrives from the South.

Here is the first 777-200LR delivery flight schedule, it is one for Employee viewing and will be making the following stops:

Friday June 22 17:30-20:00 in YEG
Saturday June 23 08:00-11:00 in YWG
Saturday June 23 17:00-20:00 in YYC
Sunday June 24 08:00-11:00 in YHZ, this is all from our Employee website.

I guess they have left out Vancouver due to the Lay-offs with my fellow mechanics, I guess AC doesn't want any disruptions  Angry

Well, it looks as if the delivery of AC's 77L has been postponed and the events in YEG, YWG, YYC and YHZ have been as well. Too bad... I was really hoping to get a look at this bird this weekend. Does anybody know why exactly the delivery has been delayed?
Oh Stewardess, I speak Jive.

AC's internal site refers only to "unexpected developments" and that delivery will not be before Monday, June 25 at the earliest. And since the aircraft will be needed for pilot training immediately after arrival, the employee events planned for YEG/YWG/YYC/YHZ have been postponed but AC will try to schedule similar events in future.

Saw both of AC's new 777's at Everett beginning of this week. Probably the two new ones AC is getting, one of which will be stopping in YYC. 1 200 and one 300ER.
