Hi everyone. I will be flying an Air Canada YYZ-CDG-YYZ on a 767-200ER. It is the first time that I will be flying this aircraft with Air Canada.
Please share your experiences that you have had on this aircraft with Air Canada. I am particularly interested in how you found the seat comfort and legroom to be. Thanks.

I have flown the 767-200 Domestic version only once (Montreal-Toronto). I was able to get some photos of the interior, so you can get an idea of what the aircraft will be like. Please note that the plane you will be on will be internationally configured, so it will have Executive First (2-2-1 configuration) instead of Executive Class (2-2-2) which is displayed below. Economy sections should be almost identical. Sorry, don't remember seat comfort, but I do remember an unusual amount of cabin vibration in the back. Aircraft was C-GAUB #601. Recently, I believe Air Canada has flown the 762ER on YYZ-CDG instead of the 763ER.

I flew on one of Air Canada's 767-200Er's from LHR to YYZ and the seats were very comfortable in economy, enough legroom. The food was very good as well. I would gladly fly Air Canada and on that aircraft again.

I've flown Air Canada's 767s numerous times. Comfort level and space was quite acceptable.
I haven't checked the winter schedule for the Toronto-Paris route but, as you know, aircraft are often downgraded for the winter season to Europe. This is probably why you are on the -200 rather than the -300. Check Air Canada's website for specifics.

The first flight I took on a 767 was across the Atlantic from YYZ to CDG in April of 1987. It was an Air Canada 200ER on the 880. I was shocked when I got to the gate and learned that it was this twin-engined boat taking me into terroritory where only trijets and 747s had gone before.
At the time the L-1011 was the default plane for that route, the 747 being the flight that went through Montreal, the 870.
I got there in one piece from what I recall.
Actually, it was a bad flight. No window seat, and lots of bumps.
In late '86 and early 1987 Crocodile Dundee was the all the rage in the theatres. Anything Australian was in vogue. But I didn't like that Paul Hogan. Don't know why. And I certainly was not going to see his cheesy movie. I wouldn't see it and I wouldn't rent it, regardless of the fact that everyone else seemed to love it. The more popular the movie became the more I vowed I wouldn't see it. Period.
Well, after dinner on that flight, guess what the movie was. If I kept my head forward and my eyes open, which is the default position for airline passengers, I was forced to watch it. And with all the bumps on that flight, the seat belt light stayed on almost the entire way there. So I couldn't escape the viewing of Crocodile Dundee that fateful night. Circumstances literally forced me to watch it.
That's my experience with the Air Canada 767-200ER from YYZ to CDG.
A Lousy flight. But the movie wasn't bad.

Hmmmm...: I lauged out loud when I read that bit about Paul Hogan. So I guess you change the channel when the Subaru commercial comes on? The interior looks nice on Air Canada, better looking than DL's 762s. (seat fabric)
