  1. Air Canada has reconfigured 3 of its Boeing 777-300 aircraft to accommodate cargo only operations. They have removed over 400 seats, allowing double the cargo capacity. Air Canada will also be flying special cargo-only flights to domestic and international destinations using a combination of 777s and 787s, including the 3 converted 777s mentioned above. So far, Air Canada has operated 40 all-cargo flights since March 22 and plans to operate up to 20 all-cargo flights per week, in addition to current scheduled flights to London, Paris, Frankfurt, and Hong Kong.

Because of the major shortage of cargo capacity, two Boeing 747 Combi’s will temporarily take to the sky again."
  5. It (the E190) probably went to Marana to collect the air crews that flew the A320s and B767s down, and return them to YYZ.
