KLM MD-11:

I don't know why but this first photo seems very interesting and different even though it's very poor which is why I had to post it.

God I can't get over how beautiful the MD-11 is.

Too bad this project was scrapped after Boeing's acquisition of McDonnel Douglas

At least I'm not the only one who finds it strange. Maybe their just isn't demand which is even more surprising.

I think we'll see Rouge fly to Prague before CSA, but I do eventually see them coming back.

I am pretty sure JAT flew some charters to Ohrid back in the old days.

The Etihad CEO James Hogan said that he may give two year timeframe before he sets up some serious plans for JAT airways which is now Air Serbia. He spoke about some longhaul plans as well. So we will see what happens, but they have been very quiet about everything. Here is a picture taken a week ago;

So, looking at YVR, YYC, and YUL for the month of August, all reported an increase in international pax traffic. YYZ hasn’t published theirs yet, but one would have to think it should be up significantly from last year. When you think of the increase in capacity and new service from Aeroflot, Jet, Rouge, AC mainline, Egyptair, Hainan, Turkish, Ethiopian, LOT, etc, it boggles the mind that since the spring, international traffic is still down. As I’ve said before, even 50% loads on all those flights, would result in an increase in traffic, and I doubt they’re all running such light loads.

This document from the GTAA attempts to explain some of the drop off…

https://www.gtha.com/Portals/0/News%...lease-Memo.pdf

But I’m not sure I get all of that. If anyone has any legit insight, please share.

The only logical answer would be they count the international pax who are transiting YYZ as Domestic and Trans-border pax. Would make sense cause those two are up.

Maybe they only count the international pax who actually exiting/entering through imagration at YYZ airport as international.

Yah, those two are up substantially. Makes me think this would represent a change in accounting/philosophy though, which I would think would warrant an explanation from the GTAA. Anecdotally, every single international flight I've been on this year has been jam packed, so I'm still baffled.

Huge expansion news from AC for summer 2014...

http://aircanada.mediaroom.com/index.php?s=43&item=701

Some highlights for YYZ:

AC Mainline

YYZ-IST going daily
YYZ-Milan (5 times weekly year-round, 767)
YYZ-Rome (up guage to 333)

Rouge:

YYZ - Lisbon (Seasonal 3 times weekly)
YYZ - Manchester (Seasonal 5 times weekly)
YYZ - Athens (Seasonal increase to 5 times weekly)
YYZ - Edinburgh (Seasonal increase to 5 times weekly)
YYZ - Barcelona (Seasonal increase to 5 times weekly)
YYZ - Dublin (year round)

If this doesn't blow international traffic out of the water over previous year's something doesn't make sense.

Canada announces new and expanded air transport agreements with Algeria, Burkina Faso, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Macedonia, South Africa and Turkey.....

http://www.newswire.ca/en/story/1238...ica-and-turkey

Also.....Israel announces a first ever Air Agreement with Canada....up to now, AC and LY were operating on a 'special permit' only, that had to be renewed every year....

They went after very low yielding markets..... A part from that, I doubt if there were any decent yields in the front cabin. On the other hand, I decided to fly TK this past summer. The front cabin was around 80%, and decent yields as well because the upgrades were not offered. That can be said for their comfort class. Mostly rich Persians flew comfort to Tehran, and a few Yugos. I am just not too sure about cargo because we just used 2/3 of the runway r23. The W77 took off like a rocket! On some days, they can pull off YYZ-IST in just seven hours. (flight tracker confirmed) That's what I call an impressive run!

Looks like Saudia flights to Toronto are a go having passed the final hurdle a couple of weeks back:
Quote:
SAUDIA PASSES CANADIAN AUDITING AHEAD OF TORONTO FLIGHT
Saudia has successfully completed all auditing requirements of the Canadian Aviation Authority.
It has also completed preparations for the launch of its first flight to the Canadian city of Toronto, said Mr. Abdullah Al-Ajhar, EVP public Relations.

A Canadian Civil Aviation Authority delegation recently visited Saudi Arabia from September 1 to 10 to complete auditing requirements and meet top officials. The team began its activities with a meeting with HE Eng. Khaled Al-Molhem, Director General of Saudia in the presence of Mr. Abdul Aziz Al-Hazmi, Deputy Director General, as well as the heads of relevant operational sectors and strategic units.

The Toronto flight comes in line with Saudia’s efforts to strengthen its international position and serve different groups of passengers including Saudi scholarship students in Canada. Saudia also intends to provide the best services to pilgrims coming from Canada for Haj and Umrah.

The new flight will also boost tourism and business and support transit passengers through King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah.

During its stay in Saudi Arabia, the Canadian team completed the auditing process for the various sectors and strategic units including safety, quality, aviation security, air operations and ground services in addition to Prince Sultan Aviation Academy and Saudia Catering Co.
