^ Makes up for the absence of British Airways' A380, which usually starts it's daily service in the spring. Most airlines are grounding their super jumbos. I heard Air France is going to retire their A380 fleet.

^ Re: YVR, there has been a noticeable decrease in air traffic, particularly the small planes. Heavies are still coming and going but most are carrying cargo on the passenger decks apparently. Notably, China Southern has moved an A380 onto their route once a week.

The passenger decks are not weight rated for much cargo and have no cargo hatches so you would have to hand bomb all the cargo.

The cost of conversion to cargo is pretty expensive and time consuming so most airlines are just loading their cargo decks.


Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.

I'm just parroting the chatter I hear. I do know that Air Canada was talking about removing the seats from a handful of their B777's back in April.

AC 8081 Dash Q400 tointe is canceled, replaced by AC249, showing as a A319 - Assuming a Mainline A319

And then RON, leaving in the morning as AC250.

I assume the load exceed 70 some passengers or needed to extra seats for spacing. 

Heads up spotters....

It's possible, as AC is only selling 41 seats on the Q400 in order to keep the adjacent seat free.

The newly released Air Canada partial summer schedule has continuation of suspension of Calgary service through to the end of July, with Toronto service running 4x weekly beginning in July. Summer Montreal service seems unlikely at this point unless it comes online in August.

 

This is the foreseeable future for AC at YYJ:

  • May: YVR 2x daily
  • June: YVR 3x daily
  • July: YVR 4x daily, YYZ 4x weekly

In other news, YYJ released their April numbers...and...ooof...

 

4,261 total passengers, down 97.3% from April 2019. To put that in perspective, that is roughly the equivalent of a single day of traffic in January 2020.

YLW normally has its monthly numbers out by the 10th-12th day of the month and so far hasn't shown it's cards for April.

YLW finally posted their numbers on Monday, in the boat with YYJ but ahead at 5,706 pax for April 2020.
