Got it. I don't think PR is included in that time frame though... But AF, BA, LH, CX, and multiple AC flights, indeed.

It all depends on a day. I had seen people come just before EK A380 (3ish pm) landing and stay up to 6pm or so. I would rather enjoy spotting than be stuck on a 401 during the rush hour.

As much as I want to see one greek airline here in Toronto, it does not look too optimistic. TK took their spot once old OA halted YYZ. Canada - Europe is oversaturated market where they 've got too many airlines competing. Some of them are playing on a very thin ice as well. As soon as Emirates gets their Asia bound passengers, some of them will halt YYZ as a domino affect.

Sure, but I think the effect for EK may be limited to the Middle Eastern and Indian subcontinent because those are closer to DXB than its counterparts in the Far East and Oceania, such that, for example, HKG-YYZ nonstop is already like 15 hours one-way, compared to backtracking via DXB because of its abundance of connections which could considerably increase travel time -- if not inconvenience -- for passengers already enduring a very long flight. I think the Far East and Oceania deserve to have some nonstop services of their own because it is particularly shorter to some extent to fly eastward nonstop rather than backtracking westward.

After long time (since the summer) I went to pick up a friend just to get a glance at the new Alitalia A330.

Before AZ came in, PIA was on the final with their top of theline. (AP-BGZ)

wESTJET 737NG just to get used to taking the photos again.



I did not expect to get a MD11 Lufthansa cargo, It looked as JATDC10 back in the days.

Yeah it went from very sunny to very gloomy hehe. If you noticed I messed up the A380 photo because I joined other spotters just to listen on the scanner. I forgot to change the setting, but I guess next time in a month when I am back to see LOT 787.

Sure, but the sun can play a big factor.
The rest of the guys were saying the A380 was half empty for some reason... Here from the early months, I have some pictures of that A380.

I would too, but I don't know if Rouge will use the three modified B763s AC has as all-Y configuration... I'd be pleased to see that happen. Perhaps another destination that Rouge could serve would be The Bahamas or another Caribbean Paradise like Antigua or Trinidad.

Another new airline to serve Toronto...

Egyptair will start Toronto service from 2 June 2013, with the following schedule:

MS995 CAI2355 – 0645+1YYZ 77W x246
MS996 YYZ1245 – 0615+1CAI 77W x357

This route was supposed to be launched in 2011, but was postponed due to political instability.

indeed. Looks like YYZ is getting a bit more attention for long-haul international flights now than ever before.
