Casablanca

Post by Old fella »

Looking at Flightradar24 and saw AC Rouge B767 heading to Casablanca Morocco, didn’t know AC had such a route. Bet that would be an interesting layover and country for sure to look about. Reminds me of that 1969 Crosby, Nash, Stills and Young tune Marrakesh Express(from Casablanca going south)...... my last year HS about to head off to fame and University fortune.

Air Canada making any money going there?

Apparently money is being made, the route is being switched to mainline.

As for the destination, been once, and that was good enough for me.

I suspect that the transfer to mainline has more to do with the ability to fill a J class cabin. There are very few options (fewer seats) to get from Canada to North Africa non-stop, even from the US, so the demand allows higher ticket pricing... but what do I know.

I believe that AC Rouge is also starting Montreal- Algiers and Montreal-Marseille.

Today it's a mainline A330 doing the route.
