Next planned international flight is still May 24, but doubtful. Only 12x weekly flights to the US for most of May.

My guess is the pupose is the same as those Flair flights from YUL to MEX. Seasonal workers for farms.

I highly doubt that's what they are expecting. The sheer number of layoffs and planes they are sending into long term storage are a clear sign that they know summer 2020 is a write off. They are simply updating the schedules a month at a time it seems.

WS appears to be starting cargo only flights with its 787s as 2 are currently operating YYC-DUB under flight #s WS9920 & 9926.

This is the most international action YYC has seen in weeks.

That Aeromexico did go to a gate. It was 75, which isn't very visible from most public areas.

hollywoodcory Apr 26, 2020 8:15 PM

The 2 WS 787s that flew to DUB on Friday flew DUB-YYC-ATL-YYC today. Crazy to think ATL got to see the WestJet dreamliners before even YVR did.

Hardly a shocker, but Eurowings confirming FRA-YYC is not going to happen this year.

Wouldn't be surprised to see the only long haul route out of YYC this summer being WS to LGW.

Guangzhou – Vancouver

China Southern has scheduled the A380 to replace its 777-300ER from 28 APR to 27 MAY - once weekly service as mandated.

Not that many A380s flying right now.

Ya!

They actually flew DUB-YYZ-ATL-YYC

AC FRA / KL AMS are likely to resume eventually too. Still surprised WS hasn't completely pulled its planned FCO yet.

BA LHR / AC LHR / WS CDG could go either way.

That's for sure. Here's an actively updated tracker of the world's 380 fleet: https://airinsight.com/a380s-grounde...hurts-traffic/. China Southern are currently the world's largest 380 (active) operator!

The world's largest plane, the Antonov 225, (6 engines, twin tail, originally built to carry the Soviet space shuttle) is supposed to be bringing a load of medical supplies from China on Thursday evening into Mirabel.

zahav Apr 28, 2020 10:10 PM

Apparently when China Southern landed at YVR this morning, it was the only A380 flying anywhere in the world at that time. Source is from the YVR Spotters Facebook group with data from Flight Radar.

Sick! Wish I was down on the coast to see that bird land and take off.

I'll try to circle back on this thread if I hear any more details on timing. Saw a story linked on a spotters FB page about it. Nolinar has the contract, and obviously their 737-200 won't cut it lol, so they contracted with a Toronto company who has a connection with Antonov Airlines and the material has to be taken to a specific airport in China (not Shanghai where most of it comes out of) because it's the only one in the country certified for the AN-225 to use. Tianjin I think it was.

I've been tracking the plane on FR24. Yes, it's in Tianjin now. Flew in from Almaty. It will fly via ANC to YMX and arrive around 20h45 tomorrow night.

The A380 is a toy compared to the An-225. Incredible to think that the one plane built will most likely outlast the whole A380 program.

Link to a news piece about it. In french only.

Thanks for the link.

I wonder if China Southern is just rotating the B777/A380 to keep both active. I'm also curious how many revenue passengers were aboard and if the cargo hold was full... It goes against ones expectations to see such a massive passenger aircraft used when traffic is down 90%!
