Monday - May 27th 5pm-8pm

I started using my new 70-200mm F4L lens so I am pretty happy with the results. As they say, pro pictures come with a pro lens. Enjoy! I got a BA747, but KLM 747 got delayed and switched to a A330.

I'm not sure if this means seasonal service only or that after this year the service is cancelled already for good...

It only means that the service will be reduced from a year-round service to a summer-only (seasonal) service. As a result, the 4x weekly YVR—ICN rotation will resume daily services to compensate for the "loss" of nonstop YYZ—ICN service. And YU-AMC, those are wonderful aircraft pics... I must say, that WestJet "100th B737NG" decal looks interesting, as I didn't know that it was the 100th ever NG built by Boeing... Must already show its age too. As for the others, yes, those look really great, even on a low, foggy day.

It's official Canadians no longer need a UAE visa upon arrival.

Yeah I did not make good effort to take some good pictures of Lot's 767. I find them boring and very tired birds that need to be retired ASAP. I am looking out for LO and ET B787s. Also I have to say that my jaw dropped when I saw Iceland air. Good branding and very sexy looking B757.

More 787's heading to YYZ, although this looks like a capacity cut.

Hainan Airlines' first 787s go to Chicago, Seattle & Toronto but Air China gets Beijing's key routes

CAPA > Aviation Analysis > Hainan Airlines' first 787s go to Chicago, Seattle & Toronto but Air China gets Beijing's key routes
30th May, 2013

Hainan's full long-haul network includes Beijing-Abu Dhabi (twice weekly 767), Beijing-Brussels (five times weekly A330-200), Beijing-Male (three times weekly 767), Beijing-Moscow (three times weekly A330-300), Beijing-Seattle (daily A330-200), Beijing-Saint Petersburg (twice weekly A330-300), Beijing-Toronto (three times A340-600) and Beijing-Zurich (twice weekly A330-200).

Hainan is the only Chinese carrier in Berlin and Seattle and has no direct route competitor. On the Beijing-Toronto route Hainan has to compete with from Air Canada, which has double to four times Hainan's capacity.

Overall capacity on the Toronto route, again provided there are no frequency changes, will decrease 26%. Business class decreases 40% while economy decreases 20%. Hainan will likely add frequencies with time, which will help it capture the market that needs a daily or close to a daily offering if it is to capture any premium share. Hainan has had to use A340-600s to Toronto as they are the carrier's only suitable aircraft for that long route.

While Hainan has less overall capacity than Air Canada on the Beijing-Toronto service, it has about 50% more business class seats per flight. Premium cabins are challenging for Chinese carriers to fill at optimum yield levels, a result of their marketing and distribution but also the local market's premium maturity. Filling premium seats from foreign points is especially challenging for Chinese carriers. Premium seats are often sold at a large discount compared to foreign competitors.

The end of first class and the reduction per flight in business class seats, combined with the greater efficiency of the 787 over the A340-600, will no doubt help Hainan's position in Toronto. As for Seattle, Hainan will gain the 787's efficiency while carrying fewer low-yielding economy passengers.

Chicago was envisioned to be launched with the 787 but the aircraft's delivery delays meant Hainan scheduled an A330 and later A340-600 when further analysis showed the A330-200 did not have sufficient range to reach Chicago. If Hainan is unable to launch Chicago with the 787, it will see similar improvements to Toronto when the 787 replaces the A340-600.

(Hainan originally planned for four weekly 787 flights to Chicago, but this was decreased as the operating aircraft was changed to a larger one: the plan to use the A330-200 was tied to having three weekly flights while the more recent plan to use the A340-600 was accompanied with a frequency chance down to two weekly flights.)

Seattle is Hainan's largest international destination ranked on seat capacity, followed by Brussels. Of its long-haul destinations, Berlin is fourth, Moscow fifth, Toronto sixth, Male seventh and Saint Petersburg 10th.

Looks like American Airlines will be swapping aircraft on its 3x daily Dallas-Toronto route as it will operate the brand new A319 on this route from 1 November 2013, replacing the current B737-800.

As for the ex-CX A346s, perhaps it might be sold off to another airline or it might end up being owned by a leasing company. Hopefully, though, those won't head to Victorville or Goodyear to be scrapped because those are still working...

Looks like you'll be seeing this aircraft very soon from YYZ often: Air Canada Rouge. This B767-300ER (reg. C-GHPE) was taken from Tel Aviv.

What do you think of the airline's livery?

Typical of LCCs. I don't think it looks bad, but to be honest, it screamed like Air Berlin when it they unveiled the branding a while back.
