100 widebodies total by 2018...possibly

#1 Post by pelmet » Sat Jul 04, 2015 3:35 am

Between 2004-12, Air Canada had an average of 56 widebodies per year, and during that period it could only add a long-haul route if it ended another. Now, however, the airline has 70 widebodies, giving it more flexibility. By 2018, the company says it could have as many as 100, though that assumes the airline will retain 16 of its oldest Airbus A330s and Boeing 767s. If business suffers, executives say they can easily jettison the older aircraft.
