BRU 30-05-2007

Post by MD-11forever » 22 May 2007, 12:28

Next Wednesday, Etihad will send an A340-500 to Brussels instead of an A330-200. It will continue to Toronto. This will also be the last Etihad flight to Toronto via Brussels.

ETA: 17.55
ETD: 19.40

Hello

Wow, that's nice traffic. Only too bad it's on another week/working- day.:(

Are they actually fully stop the service to Toronto for ever? I thought that they had some extra flights AUH-BRU-AUH but I presumed they kept flying AUH-BRU-YYZ-BRU-AUH.

A little pity, another North American destination to dissapear.


Best regards: Yannick

Yes they stop the BRU-YYZ segment and keep the BRU-AUH route. They decided to stop the YYZ route as they will fly it non-stop from AUH instead.

Don't worry YYZ won't dissapear for a long time as 9W will soon start the service from India via BRU.

Can someone confirm that Etihad will send an A340-300 instead of an A340-500?

Please, they want to start flying directly from Toronto to Abu Dhabi using an A340-500 on the first of June. That's why they are sending the A340-500 in the first place. The A340-300 is incapable of making such a long flight in one leg...

According to their planning the airframe used will be the A6-EHA.

Exactly, the aircraft will nightstop at YYZ and return the next morning on the first ever YYZ-AUH nonstop!

That's also very nice, Robin.

While I was on the FP3, both OO-TCK and OO-TCI were pulled into the SN technics hangar. Just scheduled maintenance or was something wrong?

Also seen: G-BIKM, B757 DHL, performed some engine tests in front of the flight academy.

I think you mean A6-EHA. A6-EYA is a 330-200.
