Amenities On Air Canada's Non-XM'd 763s

Hey all!

My wife and I are heading off on our honeymoon in less than 2 weeks and we're pretty excited. Our first time in Jamaica and a welcome escape from the cold Edmonton winter are hard not to look forward. As an added bonus for me, the jethead, is an elusive trip on a widebody... something we don't get much of here at YEG.

Mrs. Boss and I are flying on AC's non-stop from YEG to MBJ on one of the non-XM'd 767-300s. I know from previous threads on this forum that these birds don't have the PTVs or the new lay-flat seats (no big deal since we'll be in the back), but I have read that the seats have been given some kind of upgrade. My question is whether or not these planes have at-seat power outlets? Since we'll be relegated to old school overhead video, we'll be bringing a laptop to watch a few movies. As great as the Mac is, though, its battery won't last for a 6.5 to 7 hour flight. If there's no option to power up onboard, we'll have to bring two laptops to make it all the way to MBJ (and subsequently home a week later).

Can any AC folks or a-netters who've been on these planes share any info?

Thanks!

I will say, as an Air Canada CSA, don't get your hopes up to high. Yes, there is a chance you'd get an upgrade (if flight is oversold, etc), but not very likely.

Hope you get an upgrade. I flew Toronto - London on one of them and it was the worst flight I've ever had..
The service was very good but the seats were ripped and worn, the overhead baggage compartment was held
in place by tape and the movie was projected onto a massive screen on a bulk head. The aircraft seemed very
dated and in poor condition (worn carpets, seats, discoloured panels )

Overnight flight too and got to London feeling tired, irritable and worn out!

The flight on the outbound was good- A330-300 .



Happy -go- lucky kinda guy!
