Roll call for those who flew CP Atache around 1986.

I did many times to YHZ and YVR. All business class seating.

Historic Flights Aircraft Type

Looking for some information on some historic AC flights I took. I think I might know some of the information, but wanted to confirm with anyone that might know. Looking for aircraft type.
  • November 2004, SYD-YVR (With a tech stop in HNL (I think)). Was Aircraft Type A340-300 or 767-300ER? AC033?
  • March 2005, YVR-CUN, Not sure on aircraft type, would guess 767-300ER? Maybe they stretched out the 319/320/321 on that 6 hour flight?
If anyone has some historic knowledge on these routes I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

Can't help you with any certainty.
January of 2002, I flew HNL-SYD AC3133 and HNL-YVR AC1134.
Both were on the A340.

24 years ago Monday,

In 1999, Canadian Airlines accepted Air Canadas $92 million buyout offer, on the table since Oct. 19, ending one of the most heated corporate takeovers in Canada. Canadian Airlines, based in Calgary, was the second biggest airline in the country at the time, with almost 12 million passengers a year flying to more than 160 destinations in 17 countries. It was officially acquired by Air Canada in 2000 and on Jan. 1, 2001, the merger was complete.

Quite sad. My monthly column in Canadiann Airlines inflight magazine was killed by the merger.

Not only that, but they were my goto airline for 91 to the date of the merger, and that had HEAVY flying. I'd be 3 million miles if they counted (currently at 1.9 on AC)
Bohemian1 and Cas23 like this.

I hear you...same here...from '93 to the merger I probably did at least 400k on CAI so would be well over 2mm if they had grandfathered the CAI members into Aeroplan.

Still don't know why they didn't bankrupt the entity, screw the debtholders and keep flying...made no sense to give it away for what AC paid. Think about what AC made over time on the routes they were able to secure for that amount, plus the ability to raise prices based on the reduced competition domestically.

Always wished I'd run into Kevin Jenkins some time so I could ask him. Somewhat ironic that he now runs another 'not for profit' entity. LOL!

I wish that too. If they grandfathered CP's miles, I would be over 4 million miles now. Plus, my wife would be happier, with her upgraded status.

This makes me wonder, what if one day AC meets the same fate as CP... What would happen to all the MMs.

Bye Bye MM's. In fact the forced merger of CP into AC, put AC into bankruptcy. Unless Westjet can figure out how to be a true national airline, I think they are more likely to go under than AC. Flair could become the new Westjet.
