- EVA are running the 747 into YVR.
- 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.

Meanwhile the Société de transport de Montréal insists on numbering its airport express bus with 747.

Ham and cheese sandwich please.

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?

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

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!

G.S MTL Feb 17, 2016 12:49 AM

Mexico City is not intercontinental! Anyway I have to once again update YUL intercontinental as I keep getting updates.

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.

Shouldn't YHZ be there instead of Winnipeg?

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.
