No. The YYZ-YVR-SYD service has always been operated by a B772.
You might want to reconsider it... The first 77L only arrived two years later.
Sounds like everyone is OK according to local media, take a look at this video.

I try to keep extensive records of both winglet and eyebrow status of the 737NG fleet, so I will share the data I have in these areas: Lacking winglets -- All 69 737-600 aircraft, of which at least 9 have already been scrapped 148 737-700, with 14 being E-7 Wedgetail aircraft, and a further 32 havi...Jump to post
I think the situation is not the same as in the nineties. Airbus took over and in the next ten years CSeries, E2, Comac and Irkut will claim some marketshare in the 100-220 seats segment too. https://blogs.thomsonreuters.com/answerson/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2016/05/airbus-boeing-graphic.png Com...Jump to post

I think the general vibe is that the MAX will tide Boeing over, until technology further improves enough to justify an all-new airframe. I expect them to get started in the middle of the next decade, with delivery around 2030-2035. The NG lasted far longer than the -3/4/5 did, and about as long (if...Jump to post

Doesn't anyone think that the LH 744 on FRA-DTW is a vote of confidence for the Detroit market? It's quite a large capacity bump (premium too)! @KLM617: You can fly LH to FRA direct from DTW and get even better service than what KLM offers! If it was a 747-8 then yes I would see it as an upgrade bu...Jump to post
the article doesn't say, but did the test flight LCY-JFK carry any kind of meaningful load? The (obvious) thought here is that if the C-Series can hop the pond with a business class only configuration, then this seems to be a major win over the current 1-stop A318 ops at BA.

It looks like FTV2 is completing a simulation of an LCY to NYC trip https://www.flightradar24.com/BBA502/cd9250b Was configured with similar payload of 40 business class seats, 8 more than BA's A318. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C7yW_LxWkAIxqjh.jpg Source: https://twitter.com/jonostrower/status/8457...Jump to post

DL doesn't order new planes; they have to be at least 15 years old and have gone thru 3 airlines for them even to consider adding to their fleet. United only orders Boeing's so that should answer your question. All jokes aside, that pretty much is the truth to airplane orders for both carriers. Oth...Jump to post

Just saw this - Courtesy of RoutesOnline - Southwest Airlines on Thursday 16MAR17 opened reservation for its new Boeing 737MAX 8 (IATA Code: 7M8), set to enter operations on 01OCT17.

Hello there. First post for me. Why is BCN-EZE 'awfully long' for an A332? In terms of passengers comfort? Each aircraft has a range of which it can fly on one tank of fuel. For the A332, this range is not much further than the distance between Barcelona and Buenos Aires. To add to that, heavier ai...Jump to post
A little odd that there are so many when ops don't begin until October Quite strange indeed. First delivery remains scheduled for July, it looks like Southwest will build up a large 737 MAX fleet before putting the aircraft into service. Is WN still retiring 737 Classics prior to starting service? ...Jump to post
Because the plane never meant to be found. The Malaysian government know where the plane is.

The big seller was the 767-300ER which is definitely not MOM. What makes it not a MOM aircraft? UA wants this new aircraft to replace it and the 757 and I bet DL and AA wouldn't mind either.

is there any problem if the MoM would have a bigger range, for examplle the same range of the 788? Uh yeah.... If airlines really want that kind of range they would just order the 788.

CSeries is a logical replacement in my book, optimized and efficient for its capacity range. Plus engine commonality with the A320neo.Jump to post
I think UA having ruled out the A330-900 is an over interpretation of the quote in the flight global article. The quote is " Levy points to the size of the A330-900, which Airbus says can carry 287 passengers in a three-class configuration, compared to the 767s as an issue." size being an...Jump to post

Am I the only one, who has the feeling, that the A330neo is actually that, what the A350 should have been in first place? Before Airbus switched to the XWB-concept, they promoted actually an A330 with new engines and new carbon wings (and some other minor changes) as A350: http://i.imgur.com/igP0H4...Jump to post
I have the feeling that if Boeing keeps launching concepts (737-10, 2-3-2 MoM) with promises an aerospace student can calculate ain't gonna happen and keeps talking about 767 sized aircraft and ignore the 200-220 seat 3500NM space, things could move rapidly.
