    Can you still edit the title and non-caps-lock it?
    On subject, where are they getting the a/c for this? :confused:

    No way to edit titles at the moment. :( Exit Row, please report your own post and ask them to change it to upper/lower case, please!

    At least one of the Three Amigos will be used for MAD so I suspect that overall, AC is shuffling the fleet around a bit to create capacity.

    I'm not sure what a 763 capacity is but let's conservatively suppose it's 250 pax. 250 x 2 flights per day x 7 days per week = 3500 seats. If we assume "summer" = 3 months = 12 weeks, then one plane alone accounts for 42,000 seats. So to hit 450,000 extra seats, all you really need is a few extra planes and a possible enhancement to the definition of "summer".
     
  6. just moving planes around, perhaps a few 320 might be finished D checks. Nothing new.

    ew, this sucks!! no service increases to Asia? AC really needs to get those 787s! (maybe then we might see the HND flights back too?)

    The cancelled announced HND flight adds one 763 to the mix.

    I think we're getting to the point where the 787 delays are starting to hurt. I wonder how much compensation AC is getting for the delayed deliveries?
     
  10. now there just have to find 450,000 people that want to fly thru YYZ...

    Additional aircraft can come from flying current fleet harder and doing more maintenance in the shoulder seasons. With the 763 fleet at 30 aircraft, an additional 1 hour flying for each aircraft yields 2 more aircraft equivalents.

    This summer there will be fewer aircraft parked at the YYZ hangars than years previous.

    Probably true... That doesn't bode well for MX problems though... :(
