It's possible that at least one of these fins is just heading down to pick up the other crews to bring them back?

I saw on the YYC Calgary Airport Spotters FB page that fin 201 was on its last flight and then being retired.

"Pick-up" flights have also been sent to various places such as MCI (AC2329/03APR-E190/FIN 341) to fetch multiple pilots who were delivering aircraft for storage. If I'm not mistaken, final positioning/ferry flights are usually designated as 7000 Series Flights.

Also to add, AC2337 YUL-MZJ is on the way (C-FPWE A320)

AC2337 YYZ-MZJ is scheduled for tomorrow (April 7) on an E90, so that's likely the crew pickup flight.

This was confirmed by an internal source on twitter (I posted the link in the "Master Fleet Changes" thread).

Things are a wee bit more active this morning.

Note the E190 heading to MZJ, AC 7090 to KIN and oooooh, a BCS3 to YYC.

Oooh, look who is getting some exercise coming in from the desert.

And AC 144 and 322 are giving the BCS3s some workouts.

Fin 703 on her way home





Seems like she was in SIN for a couple of weeks.

Also, the A333 hopped over from SIN-QPG. It lists registration # as C-GKUG, but I don't see that anywhere on the AC Fleet page. Thoughts?






Ah, I see

UPDATE on FIN 201 (C-FDQQ)

That was indeed the final ferry flight on April 6th for AC's first A320. That aircraft also had a wall plaque in front of seats 1DF dedicated to the memory of
Captain Pete Dzulinksy (Manager Flight Standards A320) who passed away in 1990 and operated the first delivery flight between TLS & YMQ on January 26, 1990.
