I thought the 330's were being used at capacity? Is there an equipment change on another route?

 

La liaison YUL-FCO semble plus populaire que prévue (and/or more premium passagers), au point d'y substituer un A330. Le B767 libéré va évidemment se retrouver dans un marché moins performant (ou plus approprié) que prévu. Lequel?

YYZ-FCO will change from A333 to B77W. So theres one

But they've added the A333 to YYZ-AMS and YYZ-MAD so its still over by two.

 

Wouldn't be surprised if YYZ-MUC will change for 787-9 and YYC-LHR will get a 77W since AC cancelled their 2nd 4x weekly flight.

Wow! Seeing YUL-FCO get de-rouged is surprising. I guess they got an unexpected amount of premium demand to go to a mainline A333. Nonetheless an interesting development, along with the 77W from YYZ.

 

Although they are over by 2 for A333 usage, it's inevitable some routes will transition to 788/9 for summer 2016 as we have seen already, and not forgetting about the 2 new 77Ws arriving next year which allows for more flexibility.

 

I'm still wondering what will be the first long-haul AC 787 route from YUL will be... Perhaps BRU?

One of those 2 new 77W will be used on ACA884/885 YUL-CDG. So double daily 77W next year on CDG which is a huge increase in seats.

 

As for a first 787 route from YUL, I'd like to think Tel Aviv or BRU is a good candidate.

Air Canada will never use its own metal (or plastic) on a new non francophone transatlantic destination. It will or would be Rouge or a code share. So Brussels, Paris or Geneva will likely be the city if they even plan to use them here at all.

I was surprised when they announced LYS with mainline, however if and when they announce Marseille it will most likely be rouge.

It's probably a vacation destination so yes Rouge. Lyon probably attracts some premium traffic. I'll be curious to see how it will affect Geneva.

 

I expect it not to be that bad, UN traffic should keep this route going, along with connection from *alliance (SWISS) and codeshare (MEA) to BEY.
