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.
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!

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!
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!
The Flight was Amazing!
