Hopefully we will see more airlines at YYZ, maybe daily a380 from EK.

Doesn't necessarily mean that there were light loads. I've been on a few AC 77W flights that were rammed full and we got off the ground in a hurry. Could have been a harder thrust, stronger head winds.

Nevertheless, it would be interesting to see the stats. I don't expect the loads are light, but the yields may be low.

Perhaps the yields are low because the price for a seat on PR may be really low compared to other airlines, and that not a lot of premium passengers may be on board that flight (unless the flight is full all the time, but I don't know what the real story is). That reminds me to keep pushing for further government reforms back home to help aid the economy of the Philippines and to finally catch up to the likes of Hong Kong, Singapore, and Bangkok, which attract much more flights. And by the way, Manila would be like the easternmost Southeast Asian capital, just two hours away from Hong Kong, which is an aviation hub...

On that note, any status on the runway extension for YTZ?

I still think that is a very long shot. In the long run Porter will probably move to YYZ and, that island will be redeveloped. That's what's taking place with our regional airport so called Buttonville. They are going to build some casino up there.

I agree. Having in mind that the flight is routed via YVR, in that case it does really not matter because they would refuel when they reach Vancouver.

Air Canada's hangar being constructed way back in the 1970?



The old T2 gates and ground work being carried out in 1971?

Clearly the lower cost makes such a route viable for AC to extend its service.

That will cause competition with the potential year-round Aer Lingus flights!

Look out for some new liveries coming your way in May. LOT flights to YYZ will be flown with a EuroAtlantic 767-300 and/or 777-200.

There is a bit of a discrepancy on which aircraft will be used. Airlineroute.net shows the 767-300 being used http://airlineroute.net/2013/04/24/lo-may13/ whereas Pasazer.com (in Polish only) http://www.pasazer.com/in-13623-boei...ju,w,locie.php shows the 777-200 being used on flights to YYZ. Maybe someone out there can take some pics and post them on here.

I was just about to post that but you beat me to it. Pasazer has 777-200 listed and one source I know also says 777-200. I will take some pics and post them on here when I go spotting.

In addition to this does anybody know if sunwing will lease a few 767s from euro Atlantic for the summer season? Seems like euro Atlantic is leasing everything to LOT;P

Looks like Ethiopian are adding a 3rd weekly flight to YYZ, on Thursdays, effective about June 15th...

Fan-freakin'-tastic!
By the way, flying back tonight from YHZ, landed about 9 PM and saw one of the best collection of foreign tails I've seen in a while at any airport. Lined up around T3 international was SATA, Icelandair, 2 Caribbean Airlines, Philippine Airlines, BA, KLM, Cathay, and Pakistan. T1 had the usual suspects along with the EK beast. Quite and impressive sight. Just too dark to snap a picture.

Yeah that's what I always see when I head to the T1 departure deck. You get to pass the T3 and see a variety of airlines lined up. I miss the days when we had Malev, Csa and other eastern European airlines at the same terminal.

I was actually around the area that day, had no gear with me but, thought I'd stop by 06 and snap some pics with my phone. It really is turning into an interesting airport with so many different airlines now.

Don't know what to make of this announcement, but it would be awesome to see a South American carrier back at YYZ. Wasn't Avianca also supposed to be starting service?

Aerolineas Argentinas received (22-Apr-2013) renewed permission to operate regularly scheduled passenger, cargo and mail services for 15 years on 90+ domestic and international routes, effective 06-Mar-2014. International destinations include:

Algeria: Algiers;
Australia;
Austria: Vienna;
Belarus: Minsk;
Belgium: Brussels;
Bolivia: Santa Cruz, La Paz;
Brazil: Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro,
Bulgaria: Sofia;
Cape Verde: Sal;
Canada: Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver;
I frankly can't see them starting service to any other destination in Canada except YYZ.
