- Air China is also doing the 747 into YVR.
- Qantas is season into YVR, however it is exclusively a 747 service.

In the summer we likely see our first 747-8 service. However as airlines bring online A380, 777 and 787 the old 747 will die out.

We use to has Cathy Pacific and Japan Airlines with 747 but those days are long gone. Today the 787 and 777 dominate most of those routes.

Air China doesn't fly its 747s to YVR (744 or 748). It's a 77W exclusive route for them.

However, China Airlines does to TPE and scheduled through the summer for now. Perhaps YVR's first A350 route?

BA's 744s are set to return in late autumn for the 2016/2017 winter season.

Yes, Korean is scheduled to commence 748 ops this summer.

Also YVR sees 744/748 freighters on both CX and KE.

YVR definitely will see a fantastic mix of wide body aircraft this summer. I think there will no longer be any A340-300s though as PR goes all 77W. LH is brining back the A340-600 on some of the MUC flights.

Typed Air China instead of China Airlines. Thanks for catching that. Not certain what the schedule is just now, but it is impressive arriving from TPE on an EVA 747 with the China Airlines 747 also coming in within minutes and both flights dumping all those passengers in customs within minutes of each other.

I believe BA is doing a 744 currently.

Have to say as a passenger I miss the A340. It has been years since Air Canada has had any. They were so quite. It will sad to see them go.

Regardless of the 747 becoming a rarer sight around North America it is still an immediately recognizable aircraft number, so using it for a bus route is awesome in my books. :tup:

Nice YUL pic. Is there any plan to revamp the domestic side? It would be nice if they got rid of the aeroquay.

The interior of the domestic pier has been renovated a few years back. It's not as bad as before. As for expanding it, there is no room to do so, due to the proximity of runway 06R/24L. The aeroquay is used by Jazz and a lot of their Dash-8 operations, so it's not going anywhere, as per the master plan til 2033. YUL needs additional gates, not less.

YEG (Edmonton) also uses this route number for the bus route that serves the airport.

Won't China Airlines still be running the A340-300? Or are they going all 747?

LeftCoaster Feb 16, 2016 8:04 PM

I've updated my International widebody* (Mexico City included) charts to include the latest equipment changes and not I've added seats and a handy summary! I'm sure there are a few errors here and there but for the most part they are pretty accurate.

As you can see some strong growth at YVR and the Alberta airports are still holding steady (YYC even adding capacity) on the intl front through the downturn.

Lots of capacity from YVR to a few strong hubs, with several double daily destinations and some triple dailies.

Triple daily:
  • Beijing on all B777-300
  • Hong Kong on all B777-300
  • London Heathrow on B777, B789 and A380
  • Shanghai on B777 and A330
  • Tokyo on B788 and B789

Double daily:
  • Seoul on all B788 and B748i
  • Taipei on B744 and A343
  • London Gatwick on A333 and B763

zahav Feb 16, 2016 9:54 PM

Great list Leftcoaster, awesome! Only two small things I noticed. China Airlines is daily 744, not using the 340 at all. And for AC, I believe the daily Sydney 77L has been reconfigured and has 300 seats now, or I might be wrong?

Nice work.

I see you italicized Hainan, Tianjin and Beijing Capital Airlines, but since they aren't confirmed, they shouldn't be counted anyways.
Total weekly flights should be 258, as per today's schedules.

So, the top 8 busiest airports in country, and their number of weekly intercontinental flights looks something like this...

YYZ - a million + weekly intl flights :D
YVR - 258
YUL - 252
YYC - 55
YEG - 12
YOW - 14
YWG - 1
YHZ - 23

Yeah I italicized them since they have applied but not yet confirmed or set schedules etc...

You're right in that they aren't set to hit summer 16' but I don't want to remove them because then I'd have to put them back in if and when they are confirmed.

It's my list and I can be lazy if i want to! :D

Bokimon Feb 17, 2016 12:44 AM

Lots of good info on that chart Leftcoaster,

nice thread. I finally set foot into a Canada thread. There are 136pages worth of goodies I have missed out on, well no more!

I know, in my post I put a little astrix next to it.

When I first posted this list I explained the genesis of this list and why Aeromexico is in there.

When i wrote busiest, i meant in terms of total passenger figures. YWG is busier that YHZ, as of 2014. But yes, we can add YHZ as well, as they have more transcon flights that YWG, YOW and YEG during the summer. I believe the count is somewhere around 23 weekly for YHZ.

daily AC to LHR
daily WS to GLA
1 weekly ASL airlines/Europe Airpost to DUB/CDG
3 weekly FI to KEF
4 weekly DE to FRA
1 weekly DE to MUC.

All of these are summer seasonal except for AC to LHR, which operates at reduced frequency during the winter.

Just read AC is to purchase a bunch of C Series jets from bombardier.

Yes, 45 and up to 75 if options are exercised. http://aircanada.mediaroom.com/index.php?s=43&item=984

Positive move. From a customer experience perspective going from the E190 and A32x series to the C300 and 737. The C300 looks to be a step forward, the 737 a step back. Win some you lose some.

Overall a great move for Canadian Aerospace.

This almost seems akin to the all the stuff going up in the CrossIron Mills area north of Calgary - out of Calgary's control in the M.D./county but still creating headaches for Calgary. There was even a call for Calgary Transit to provide transit service to all the businesses and industry that has been setting up shop in the CrossIron Mills area but the City of Calgary said no, that this was the M.D. of Rockview's problem and not Calgary's.

Probably worthy of it's own thread, later today I'll build something.

Regarding the list on the pervious page.

Air Transat has decide to cancel it's Calgary-Glasgow flight starting May 31st.

So will YUL finally wake the fuck up and give us the 2015 results? Wayyyyyyy overdue.

Yes, so the twice weekly YYC-MAN will just do MAN only. One of the MAN flights was via GLA.

But it was Top 101 companies overall in Atlantic Canada lol

That was inevitable. With lifted sanctions and an Irianian diaspora pushing 100K in the GTHA, the timing seems right.

Plus like Turkey they have the population base to back up a shot at a super connector. I would run a little quid-pro-quo with the Iranians - buy a reasonable fleet of C-Series and there will be more slots available than initial O&D requires.

G.S MTL Feb 19, 2016 9:04 PM

Well, here is the most recent updated list. There are quite some changes... I will constantly update!... Air Transat to Budapest was cancelled and once again Pisa was also cancelled. Air Algerie so far as of now is actually 8 weekly flights.. so yeah! I also checked Corsair to Orly and apparently is 6 weekly! I thought it was 7!! I didn't put AEROMEXICO or COPA Airlines like some did. If anyone has any updated or anything message me thanks!

YYZ is usually the slowest to get numbers out. YHZ is still not reporting its 2015 year results yet either.

Some airports are reporting January results already: YLW, YYJ and YEG.

A small sign-of-the-times results at a couple of smaller airports here for the year 2015. (vs. 2014):

Regina fell by 6500 pax
Saskatoon fell by 41,200 pax

kwoldtimer Feb 20, 2016 2:22 PM

YKF was up 5.8% over the previous year - to a record total of 154,000 passengers.

Nice list. Even when you take away the obvious home grown heavyweights AC/Rouge/Transat, that's still a pretty nice mix of tails. And as we all know, those of us in these parts are all about the tail. (Don't tell my wife I said that :))

Did the editors of World Tribune even think as they approved and posted the story that the quoted number of A380s was absolutely insane?

"As sanctions were lifted after implementation of the nuclear deal with world powers, Iran agreed to purchase 118 Airbus 380 long-range planes, Persian-language news site Titre20.ir reported. The deal with the French aviation giant was reportedly worth $16 billion."

They began the process of buying up to 118 Airbus aircraft, including 12 A380s and they'll happily convert those to A350s if the A380s order hits any snags. I found several reputable news stories about the Iran post-sanctions aircraft purchase with a quick search.

WestJet to begin offering Hamilton-Vancouver service three times a week

Hamilton Spectator
http://www.thespec.com/news-story/63...-times-a-week/

WestJet is planning to launch direct flight service this summer between Hamilton and Vancouver, three times a week. Flights are scheduled to run through the peak vacation season, from June 30 to Sept. 4, the airline announced Monday.

"We're very excited with WestJet's announcement to operate non-stop flights from Hamilton to Vancouver this summer," said Frank Scremin, president and CEO for John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport. "Vancouver is not only a key business destination, but also a great vacation market."

He said the direct service will be a boon for passengers who currently fly to Vancouver from Hamilton, by way of Calgary. The Vancouver to Hamilton runs will depart at 10:15 a.m. and arrive at 5:35 p.m. The reverse trips will depart at 6:40 p.m. and arrive at 8:38 p.m.
