Note : I operated the 747-200/300 with KLM and Martinair (MP) for several years and encountered the MP MD11 crews on several occasions (in the crewrooms, all over the world.) They never mentioned the combi operation of the MD11CF, only the change from full cargo to/from all pax operation, mostly wi...Jump to post
Where were they planning on flying it? Will they have to lease in capacity? Don't think so, rather keep operating their planned for retirement A310s if necessary. However, the first were expected during the 1st quarter and regular flights from May. Thus, four to six weeks delay may not impact sched...Jump to post
Here we have details of both schedules and frequencies. For the latter, there'll be difeerences for both CDG and DUB.

This is due to engine issues. Hopefully it won't be much longer than that and wreck their summer program.

I've always had great affection for the A310; it's a very photogenic aircraft, being quite short. It's a fine piece of machinery that has served airlines very well over the last 35 years and was one of those aircraft which made long haul twin flying the success it is today. Very true. Always loved ...Jump to post
Here we go again. Two threads, including one I started, don't show up in the list of my posts. Hi the site is having some issues at the moment and I will report to the developers.

If I’m not mistaken Boeing built a handful of combis that had the nose door. I know I’ve seen pics of the nose door open w/ windows. Combi 747s are aircraft designed to carry both passengers and cargo on the main deck at the same time.Such aircraft is designated as 747-200/300/400M, the M means Com...Jump to post
No combi configuration has been certified for the MD-11CF ! Proof provided shows otherwise. Please show us which one. Again: - was the MD-11 ever certified as a Combi?

It was reported two days, and options include codesharing and interlining. Their partnership, for the upcoming 2018/19 winter season, will take the shape of ten Thomas Cook's A321s flying from Canada to Sun destinations with TS and four A330s flying from Europe to the Caribbean and such with Thomas ...Jump to post
Besides the SN DC-10s that operated as a combi, did any other DC-10CFs operate as combi or was it the same as with the MD-11CF? The DC-10CF was mostly ordered and operated by charter airlines. 9 DC-10-10CF were built and delivered to Continental and United, all nine migrated to FedEx. 26 DC-10-30CF...Jump to post
It may be a bit tight for the westbound flights on some of the destinations. TS is going to use the A321LR (which has roughly a 4,000 nmi range) to these cities. I wonder what will be AC's response. True and I wonder which of BSL or SXB would they choose IF they were to start flying in that part of...Jump to post
Here are the latest pics of Geneva Airport East Wing: https://twitter.com/Phofmannsair/status/1047765697890308096 So it's finally taking shape.

It will be interesting to watch the competition in the coming years, over French province cities, between AC with the 7M8 and TS with the A321LR. WS is not in the game, for whichever reason. But wouldn’t that be limited to NTE and LIL? The other cities like TLS, MRS, BSL, SXB are out of these type’...Jump to post

I don't know whether it was already part of the press release, but here goes, just in case:

Here are more details of the european routes that will see the new Airbus as the fleet grows. Apparently BSL will be 2x weekly.

YHZ has always had domestic widebodies. Until the MAX8 took over the YHZ-LHR route….the ‘763 originated in YYZ as a stand alone domestic flight. Sure it positioned the aircraft in YHZ for the LHR flight later that evening but it always had high domestic load factors. Same for the ‘333 from YUL. Alw...Jump to post
Anyone know if the airport is usually very busy during those two hours? If you look at tomorrow's schedule, there are 7 arrivals and departures during that time but it's not peak season at the moment. Indeed, however, based on SPU's numbers, the airport went through a traffic increase of 23% in 201...Jump to post
we look back at other notable airline failures. Please, enlighten me here. What are you considering as "notable failure"? Because based on all the exemples given in this thread, I don't find most of them that notable. Laker was, as was Braniff, Swissair, Ansett, Pan Am and a few others. B...Jump to post
Not to mention that some of those routes have very high frequencies. In the summer, I believe there are up to 8 dailies between YUL and the two Paris airports between TS, AC, SS, LV, and AF. Level wasn't daily, while SS was. Then you can add the two Air Transat, three Air France and 2 or 3 Air Cana...Jump to post
That YUL-YHZ-YUL ‘333 is gone (last week) and now we’ve got a ‘763 doing a YYYZ-YHZ-YYZ turn each afternoon. Wonder what the plan will be for next summer? Back to a YUL-YHZ-YUL ‘333? So far, it seems they'll only send a mix of narrowbodies from both YUL and YYZ. You can keep an eye on it here: http...Jump to post
The adjustment to Canada-Austria's service reminds me of what's going on with ZRH since years.

Has Air Canada flown to Scandinavia from YVR? I wonder if that could be a possible future connection especially since SK doesn't fly to YVR (or anywhere in Canada from I believe).

I believe the remaining A333s will be running TATL to larger European destinations (2nd dailies on LHR, CDG, primary on LYS, etc.). Some will be out while they're being refitted as well, I imagine. As well as being repainted in AC's new corpoeate livery. Can't wait to see C-GHLM getting it. (I know...Jump to post
Very interesting to see Air Canada utilize the 7M8 on transatlantic routes. This has the potential to open up a slew of new markets from eastern Canada to Europe. True, this leads to ask whether they'd open a YQB-CDG service, even seasonal? TS had 4x weekly service during this summer and keep it at...Jump to post
Current AC Schedule shows YVR-ZRH will increase to 5x weekly 788. Ok, good to know. They've had some success then to keep it and even increase frequencies.

Amongst other changes, from YUL, flights to FRA, NRT and PVG will be upgauged to 789, replacing the 788 that were in use this year.
