Widebody Routes In Canada In 1991

As a three month old in October of 1991, my family and I traveled to Montreal from Vancouver. My mom doesn't remember what airline it was, but she knows that it was a wide-body. Is there any way for me to find out what airline/aircraft we flew on. I think the airline was Canadian, but my mom is not sure. It was definitely a wide-body though.

Thanks, and Cheers,

Graham


As long as the number of take-offs equals the number of landings...you're doing fine.

Both AC and CP use to operate wide body jest from YVR to YUL. It might have been Wardair as well.

Like QB said, both AC and CP used the wide body aircraft on the routes. More than likely it would have been a 767. How ever it could have been a DC-10, L-1011 or a 747. Does she remember how many seats between the window and the isle or the isle to the isle?


Keep the shinny side up!

Indeed. Likely Air Canada.

Could it have been a Wardair A310 or a Canadi

There were at least 4 seats in the middle section where she was sitting, but she cant remember if it was 2 or 3 on the sides. She knows it wasn't Wardair, and thinks it was Canadian for sure.

Ask her if she had to wear sunglasses on board from all the bright colors used in the interior.
If she says yes, it was probably a Wardair 747!

Wardair merged with CP in 1986.

Well that eliminates the 767....

Probably a DC-10. It has 5 in middle. YVR-YUL to small for 747

The engine is the heart of an airplane, but the pilot is its soul.

1989 not 1986. Even in 1990, CP was still flying some aircraft such as the A310 in Wardairs livery and cabin crew.

The 767 and DC10 are out of the running then, depending on how accurate the memories are of course and if there were only 4 seats across

It could be possible that a 747 did do that stretch on a regular basis as a repositioning flight, but coming from YUL, I doubt it would have been CP.

I'd put my money on an AC L1011 based on the information given so far

Or a CP DC-10-30-, also with 2-5-2 seating in Y class.

You know what, for some reason I'm thinking that the L1011 had 4 seats in the center, my mistake. I was thinking of the TS L1011 cabin, thanks for catching that.
