Air Canada taking 2 A319s from the scrapyard?


Noticed these 2 flights from Pinal Airpark (KMZJ) today: … /KMZJ/CYMX … /KMZJ/CYMX

Any reason why Air Canada would take these 2 A319’s from the scrapyard?


They were probably just being stored until demand picked up or they returned some other leased aircraft.


These (fleet #s 288 and 295) are the 2 remaining ex-Mexicana ones which were banished to MZJ in February 2011. Don’t know what AC’s plans are - return to service or sell ?
