Hey Guys,

After pretty much "stalking" airliners.net for the past 5 years, since I was 15, I finally had to nerve to become a member so this is my very first post ever! - Smile

This upcoming July I and about 15 friends will be flying YYZ-SYD-YYZ (with the 1 stop in YVR, I believe its flight #33 and #34 on the way back). I pretty excited for it will be my first flight on a T7, and what I start especially with the LR in service, and I want to know if anyone has experience with this flight, any suggestions, advice, tips are all welcome.

Also, I'm pretty anxious to get a seat selection, but my travel agent is out of the country for the next month. Therefore I have no comfirmation number, or booking reference number. Is there a way around it? How can I get ahold of this information without waiting for my agent. Thanks in advance.

-EuroPL

If you call your local AC reservation number and play a bit dumb you should be able to get some information. They will search by your last name and booking date. If you get someone in a good mood and helpful they are excellent. They should be albe to give you your numbers. I don't have the number handy but check www.aircanada.ca. Check the AC website as well for the seating chart. Check seatexpert.com if you want to know their opinions on seats.

Providing your travel agent isn't a stand alone agent/company, any of her colleagues would be able to provide you with the infromation as well.

Have fun on your trip down under!

Cheers,

Hi, firstly welcome to A.net!

Can't say I've flown on this flight before, you still have plenty of time to sort out your seat...
Stay awake on the first part of the flight to YVR. Enjoy the meal and a movie out of YVR but then go to sleep... that way you'll have a good 8 hours sleep before breakfast is served and will adjust yourself to Australian time. (that is if the flight leaves YVR around 7pm or so?)

Well you will avoid the crowds in Australia as July is wintertime downunder... how long are you going for?
Sydney is a great city... as a side trip I suggest you fly (if you arent there for long) up to the Gold Coast, or drive if you are in Oz a while. Another option is to fly across to New Zealand... (Queenstown is crazy in winter you'll love it) Lots of skiing there and plenty of other things to do (adventure capital of the world) plus big party town.

Have fun and write a trip report!

I hope they're triple 7's are better than their older aircraft! Just don't be too speedy with the IFE, It'll freeze on you! Have fun in OZland

Im actually going for 18 days, kind of worried about the weather since it will be winter time, so I really don't know what to expect. I'll be spending most of my time in Sydney and Melbourne (got a really cheap flight on VirginBlue). Hopefully, i'll have some time and do some other detours. And yes, a trip report is a must Smile

Be prepared for a full flight. I saw the AC 777LR leave YYZ last night when I was waiting at the adjcent gate for a YYC flight and there were about 20+ standbys trying to get onto it... A family of them couldn't get on and rushed nextdoor to our gate last minute to join our flight to YYC in hopes to make it to YVR through YYC the following morning.

Cool, well Sydney is fine in Winter... can be a little chilly and the odd rainy day but mostly nice and can still be quite warm!
Melbourne on the other hand isn't that nice in winter... (they've been having a drought so not so much rain) but it is often cold (not Canada -20 cold lol) but it is windy and that gets to you.
have fun.

This flight is now non-stop, correct? I flew AC 33/34 out of HNL to SYD (I think those were still the flight numbers) back
in 2002 and 2003 a couple of times. As an expat living down under you'll love your trip. As mentioned, winter in
Australia is pretty temperate compared to North American winters.

As mentioned, try to get as much sleep as you can, you'll arrive early and be able to hit the ground running.

The YVR-SYD segment is now non-stop, but flight AC33 starts in YYZ goes to YVR and on to SYD. The thread starter will be travelling from YYZ, hence the stop in YVR.

The 777-300ER I've been on has been very nice. I really enjoy the service on their aircraft. Given the seating is 3-3-3 on AC's aircraft, for the long haul I recommend the centre isle seats over the side 3. That way you don't need to get up and down all that much. Really there isn't much to see over the Pacific anyway, other than water. Given you're flying with a bunch, if you can book a bunch of port or starboard banks of 3 sequentially then it'll seem more like a "party" atmosphere and you'll know who you are climbing over to the loo when flying through the night.
