Wonderful aircraft! It looks like the aircraft you've taken with Air Canada are Boeing 767-300ERs, correct?

the GTAA sure is taking their sweet time releasing end of year pax stats. Pretty much all other airports have reported figures for 2012.

Thanks! Not exactly sure what you mean by taken with the 767; do you mean taken as in a fondness or interest or taken as in flown the aircraft itself?

Thanks! Yes runway 05, it's a pretty decent spotting place, Tim's near by for some of those longer spotting trips as well

I mean, those Air Canada photos: are those the 767-300s?

For the most part majority of the photos I posted here are AC 777s, the one from the last shot where I am under is a 767. Difference between the two is size of aircraft, size of engines and landing gear (six as opposed to four)

Oh ok, got it. So the difference between a 767 and a 777 would be the landing gear and engines...?

Passenger traffic for Jan 2013 was pretty flat overall but international was disappointingly and surprisingly down by quite a bit (almost 70K). I wonder what the reason is for such a large decline. If anything, there should have been a bump in pax given PR's 3 weekly flights, but I guess when you also lose a full daily flight from CX and AI relative to last January, both on 77W's, it adds up.

The good news, there will be huge capacity increases with AC this summer, plus service from Aeroflot, Egyptair, Saudi, as well as capacity increases from Jet Airways, LOT, and BA.

Aeroflot has already announced an aircraft change. I figured this would happen - makes way more sense...

This is something I have never seen from AC before at YYZ: can anyone tell me about this livery on an A319, please? Pic was taken around two weeks ago.

I wonder how many spotters can recognize this aircraft spotting area near YYZ because this seems to be a wonderful place to take photos of landing aircraft:

^One of the best if not the best spot. There is a coffee shop and Wendy's for relaxing.
