I wanted to throw out two questions about the AC A333 aircraft with Ex. First. I was looking at their website, and it shows that they have only one of eight aircraft with the newer Ex. First layout. Is this still accurate and up to date? Do they plan to have more converted by May? I am not sure of the retirement schedule due to 777/787 deliveries (or if these have been slowed down), so I am not sure how long the 333s are to remain with the fleet and whether it makes financial sense to convert them. Finally, does the one 333 (or more if they have converted more) stay on certain routes or is it moved throughout the system. I am curious since I am suppose to fly 4 from NRT to YVR on May 10th and I was curious which type of seat to expect.

All NRT flights are on 777s.
ACs website is showing an A333 being used for AC004.
You must be looking at dates later in the year after the YYZ-NRT nonstop is reinstated. I just looked at current YVR-NRT schedules in the AC site and they all show 777-300ER, but on a couple of random dates in June it is back to 333.
AC's XM schedule shows 2 more due for completion by the end of February.

I must have defied odds by getting an XM refitted A333 on YUL YYZ last week. I must say I really like the layout and comfort of that a/c in the new XM format, glad to see AC did it. What struck me is how new it looks inside with the makeover,
