IFE will be main screen, PTVs won't have been installed yet. Service will be pretty good. Food wise, my best meal on an airplane was with AC ex-LHR (I know it isn't ex-GLA), a wonderful salmon with hollandaise sauce, salad, and ice cream.

Are you sure its a 763? I've flown this route several times on the 762, and service is typical Air Canada economy. Food is ok, service is usually above average depending on flight crew, and seat pitch is excellent. 2-3-2 makes for a nice spacious cabin. Overall, you can expect a nice, comfortable flight. Enjoy!

I am under the impression that the 762's are being used within North America mainly, although it is true that these aircraft have been used extensively to lower yielding North Atlantic flights, such as GLA. You wont get state of the art IFE, that's for sure, but you should expect a very pleasant flight.
Did you look at the competition? What would the price difference be if you chose Zoom for instance?

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but AC843 operating GLA-YYZ is scheduled to operate as a 767-200 all summer and into the fall. AC does not operate winter flights to GLA this year or next. Our 767-300 acft have Executive First seating and there is not enough of a market to use this acft type on the YYZ-GLA-YYZ route.

Thats cool. It'll be a new ship to my collection anyways!
And yeah, I did look at the competition, Zoom was about the same, Thomas Cook/Canadian Affair was £260, Air TransAt was £265, and I paid £315 for AC. I felt the extra worth it for a little more leg space, and to fly on a REAL airline...
