  1. Air Canada released their 2020 Q2 financial figures today. Alongside the to-be-expected drop in financials, there were some interesting items in the fleet figures: https://www.aircanada.com/content/dam/aircanada/portal/documents/PDF/en/quarterly-result/2020/2020_MDA_q2.pdf - The A320 fleet as of June 30, 2020 doesn't appear to account for the few airframes which were retired in the past few months. - Air Canada is getting another A330-300 in 2020. - Confirmation that the Rouge Boeing 767-300 fleet has been retired. - The Rouge A319s are still on the roster, though 6 are indicated as retired. Air Canada indicates 29 aircraft still need to be removed in 2020, so this will likely clear this roster sometime this year along with 13 mainline airframes (A320s I presume). - All Dash 8-100s are gone. - Air Canada Express Beechcraft 1900D operations with EVAS is done.
  2. 3 E190s remain active, while the 2 763s are still kicking with Toronto-Mexico runs (though one is doing a YYZ-YUL run tomorrow). 4 Rouge A319s are ferried Windsor to Toronto today.
  3. I wouldn't trust anything in the schedule past June; flight schedules are too volatile now. Many flights that were supposed to restart in June, per their schedule earlier this month, have been postponed. You can only really work on the short-term right now.
  4. The remaining 2 767s have been running almost daily Mexico City runs only. The E190s were supposed to be retired immediately as well, but I'm still seeing a few of them operating. Air Canada also released their July schedule, with a definite service increase but still lots of destinations suspended: https://www.aircanada.com/ca/en/aco/home/book/travel-news-and-updates/2020/route-updates.html The schedule no longer shows suspended routes, so if the destination doesn't show in the list, it's not running in July. Based on some dummy bookings, looks like Rouge service is returning in July, so I would expect fleet movement from storage in the coming weeks. In other news, Air Canada is going to start operating all-business class Air Canada Jetz aircraft on RapidAir routes (YYZ-YOW and YYZ-YUL). Considering these aircraft are usually only used by sports teams or expensive charters, this is likely a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to fly a Jetz aircraft. Flights are sold as Premium Economy and, based on dummy bookings, a flight to Ottawa one way is about $369 (compared to ~$475 for a regular business class seat) and Montreal $384 (regular business is around ~$500).
  5. That Wendys/Petro is great if there are landing operations coming from the east to runway 23 and it's one of the more popular options. You could also try the intersection of Airport Road/Silver Dart. If planes are landing on Runway 05, you could camp out on Dixie. Landings on 24L/24R you got a bunch of options, but Silver Dart is pretty much out of the question (no parking or sidewalks). Renforth has a sidewalk with a view of 24L, or you could find a spot in the industrial area under the 24L/24R landing area. Of course, be safe when selecting an area.
  6. i have the day off so I'm good to go, just need to look into a carpool. Willing to do a Mississauga/Oakville/Burlington meetup.
  7. Definitely interested; just need to confirm I have the day off due to tax season. Anybody doing carpools in the GTA?
  8. As far as I am aware, they are having the A220s focus on transcontinental Canada and USA trips, with the odd short-hop (such as Montreal to Toronto).
  9. "NEW 89 Bathurst route running from Newmarket Terminal to Seneca College King every 25 minutes during rush hour - they're anticipating 655 people daily, which is on par with the 18 Bur Oak all day ridership." Looks like they're bringing back the old Route 222 from way back when YRT started. "NEW Mobility On-Request East Gwillimbury GO Station - running from East Gwillimbury GO to addresses in Sharon. No service hours given" Very likely rush-hour only, there's very little demand for the station outside weekday rush-train operations. It's going to be many years until it's the transit hub it's planning it to be.
  10. Looks like the 72xxs may have been parked with the new 19xxs delivered? - 7201 last trackable on February 11th - 7202 last trackable on February 10th - 7203 last trackable on January 31st - 7204 last trackable on December 10th - 7205 last trackable on January 31st
  11. https://www.aircanada.com/content/dam/aircanada/portal/documents/PDF/en/quarterly-result/2019/2019_MDA_q4.pdf - Page 38
  12. Fleet updates from the latest financials: - All remaining 767s will remain in the fleet for 2020 (previously, all 5 were slated to be retired this year). Now expected to be removed from service in 2021. - 4 more A330-300s will join the fleet in 2020, bringing the total A330s to 17. This is 2 more than previously reported. - Air Canada now expects to receive atleast 6 737 MAX 8s in 2020. - The A319s will continue their retirement in 2021, with 7 frames expected to be retired. - 2 Rouge 767s are slated to be retired in 2020, no currently scheduled widebody deliveries to replace them. - No new changes to the Express fleet other than the CRJ900 entries and retirements previously reported. 2021 sees the retirement of 4 Dash 8-400s.
  13. The most recent quarterly results for AC (Q3 2019) show 767-300 departure during 2020. The next fleet update should be out next week, so we'll see what happens (the original plan was for them to be retired in 2019). The remainder of the Embraer 190s are planned to leave the fleet this year as well, along with 19 (more than half) of the A320s and all of the Dash 8-100s.
  14. 787-9 C-GKKN has been delivered.
  15. WestJet Dash-8 suffered a nose-gear collapse at Terrace. http://avherald.com/h?article=4d2c3005&opt=0
  16. That should be C-GKKN, she's coming home this month.
  17. Very doubtful, the 787s, 777s and A330s provide ample long-haul service for Air Canada. The quad-jet era of Air Canada ended after the retirement of the A340s. Air Canada appears to be more into the second-hand market of A330s and A321s (for Rouge). Second-hand 747-8is likely won't be hitting the market for many years, and they'll be taken up by cargo carriers or sit in the desert for parts. The second hand A380 market is barely existent aside from leasors.
  18. Heads-up that June 7th, 2020 is the currently scheduled last day of service by Delta of McDonnell Douglas aircraft to YYZ. Service will be switching to Airbus A320 on June 8th.
  19. A310 C-GTSH has been ferried to Mirabel for scrapping on Friday. 4 A310s remain with Transat.
  20. It's been mainly sticking to the Montreal-Calgary runs, but it's adding some Montreal-Toronto flights to the mix today, @anyfong Thanks for uploading the picture of C-GROV on the wiki! I wanted to make the trip out to Montreal to try for the first flight, but work is very busy around these months.
  21. The era of the A220 at Air Canada has begun, with C-GROV on AC317 this morning (albeit, running over an hour late). The aircraft will be doing runs between Montreal and Calgary today (AC317/AC318/AC323). I can't locate a timetable for it's flights for the remainder of the week.
  22. The aircraft will be salvaged for scrap metal or useful parts for similar aircraft in the secondary market or for the other Air Transat A310s.
  23. - C-GKKN - Line 959 - Had it's first flight on Jan 4th, expected delivery beginning of February. - Line 994 - Should be arriving in 2020, I can't find any public record of a registration assigned to it. - Line 1014 - Should be arriving in 2020, I can't find any public record of a registration assigned to it.
  24. The A310 fleet appears to now be down to 5 aircraft. C-GLAT hasn't flown a commerical flight since the end of December and was ferried to Mirabel on the 7th.
  25. The schedules have been updated and the A220-300 is reappearing on AC317 on January 16th. Still plenty of seats available in both classes. On my end I see $557 for economy and $2,055 for business.
