Default LUFTHANSA 747-8i and Air France A343 at YYZ!!!

Those two 4 engines are at Toronto!!! I've never seen an A340 nor the 748 before so I really hope I'll fly over Georgetown. Curse the bad weather for making them land on 24L or 24R!!!

I have seen both. First time, Lufthansa sent the 747-8 to Pearson was in 2014, and I got the following photo

And last, year, Air France sent this A343

That's nice. Hope they'll send the 748 more often to YYZ. Do they only send it if the 744 is broken? The A343 doesn't fly to YYZ often too. Hope they'll send more 4 engines to YYZ.

Could have had a bigger load that day, or a spare 748i was around and they were able to put it to Toronto. I don't see it becoming a regular anytime soon though, 744 is good enough for that route.

I'm sure. I don't think they have a plan.

they ordered the 779, so somewhere in the early 2020s they'll start to phase out their 346 and 744s.
