Hello!

This is my First Trip Report and was looking very much forward to creating it!

I was very lucky to be able to get on this 767 between LA and Toronto. They added this aircraft on the late night red-eye flight (AC794) and the noon (AC792) flight! Even better I traveled both ways on Business! We traveled on the 767 there and the A320 back.

BEGINNING
We arrived at LAX at around 7:00-7:30 to check in for what was an amazing flight on Air Canada's 767. Check-In was rather smooth especially with our long snowboard bag and we proceeded to drop off our bags. My brother and I said our good-byes to our parents and took the escalator up to security. At security everything was running smooth and we got through in a breeze. We grabbed all of our belongings and moved on to the lounge. The lounge at LAX is a pretty standard lounge. The "Maple Leaf Lounge" has an Open Bar with minuscule food options that were alright. After the lounge we proceeded to the gate and I walked around the terminal taking pics of other aircraft at their gates. I was very lucky to get a nice view of the Virgin Atlantic A340-600 soon pushing back to London and the pilots even waved to me! An hour or so later it was time to board so we headed to the priority boarding area!

FLIGHT

We arrived into the aircraft and were greeted by the Flight Attendant who guided us to our seats. Later the FA's took our coats and jackets.

My Seat 1A


The Control for the Seat


Once I boarded I asked the FA if I could have a peek in the cockpit and they agreed to ask the pilot. The pilot agreed and I proceeded to the cockpit to greet the pilots and we had a nice conversation.

We pushed back a little late and proceeded to Runway 24L and took off to the East and proceeded South past Arizona and then cut North.


The Meal Service began shortly after takeoff.

As with most airlines, we started off with warm nuts and a drink (Coca Cola).


Our salad for appetizer include a Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette.


Followed by a Chicken in Tomato Sauce with some Rice Type Side.


The Very Delicious Dessert!


During the meal service I watched part of Ted and I got to say, the movies really funny!

The Map


Cruising Fast!


After the meal service I went into a short nap and before I knew it we were on our descent!

We arrived into a Snowy and Very Cold Toronto!

A Snow Covered United A319 Parked Next to Us!


We de-boarded very quickly and moved to Customs where there was absolutely no lines!

OVERVIEW

The Flight was Amazing!

Service: 3/5 (Forgot Pre-Departure Drink and Warm Towel Service etc.)
Seat: 5/5 (Perfect for Long-Hauls)
Food: 3/5 (Airplane food...)

Total: 11/15

Thank-You Very Much for reading and look forward to Part Two, the return on the Airbus A320.

Cheers,
KLAXAirport

Really nice report!

I'm impressed that Air Canada served a full meal for an overnight flight! Most cross-country flights in the US at night just provide a snack plate/cheese plate in F.

Well done, Air Canada!

Thanks for sharing!

Best,

Matthew (767747)
