I booked a cheap Air Transat A310 ride for early next year, a domestic route in Canada. The aircraft continues to Europe so hopefully it doesn't change The A310s are planned to be replaced with A321LR, the first of which will only arrive next spring. Since the flight is scheduled to continue to Eur...Jump to post

The airline will dump 15% more seats into Europe this summer – and do so with widebody aircraft that executives concede are not ideal for the job. But starting next year, Transat will begin defending newly-acquired turf with an expanding fleet of efficient Airbus A321LRs. "Our first goal [is] ...Jump to post
It seems SS is resuming the route today, per F24, with an A332 before upgrading to an A343 next week. Same schedule as last year.

ZRH and GVA were stairs only at first. Once the former built it's new terminals A & B, less wide-bodies were parked on a hard stand.

Lately, EC-MFB of Plus Ultra has been flying for S4 between PDL/TER & Canada.
ZAG schedule is to test how is TS doing on the route... Interestingly enough, I heard Transat has added a Montreal stop on the way back on some flights. Why would they do that? Doesn't it make them less competitive vs Rouge? Or do they need extra passengers now that they are competing with them? To...Jump to post
When SA, BA and VS fly direct from LHR to JNB, they leave LHR and just point the nose south to JNB. I can tell you that I've seen several times on F24 BA's flight to JNB following the same kind of routing as their NBO's flights up to the French area situated between Lyon/Geneva and somewhere to the...Jump to post

Perhaps because it's a domestic flight. The last time I flew to HNL from LAX in coach, it was on UA, in 1999 or 2000, and the only difference of service compared to my previous domestic flight, was some chocolate with nuts inside.

In a letter they have sent to their CEO, pilots believe savings have been made in some important and security systems of A320s recently acquired, and regarding the A340s, they criticize the location of their crew rest bunks in the rear cargo hold, 40 meters from the cockpit, which they consider as n...Jump to post
I was too young then to be aware of such drama, but when years later I saw that picture of the aircraft with its wings past the 90° bank, I couldn't believe it.

I note further up that the Rouge 767s are coming out of YVR. I haven’t seen this mentioned elsewhere. What about the routes they fly from YVR which only a 767 has the legs for?

When looking at the flight path on Flightradar, it looks as if it was planned, but it was probably a medical. However seeing from where they began to descend, I'm surprised they didn't go to DUB.

The report doesn't say since when, so will they wait until the arrival of the two new 77Fs next year or do they have space capacity at the moment?
