Well... as a follow up to this, I was much less impressed with my flight back to Toronto tonight. The 767-300, an ex-Canadian plane, wasn't as comfortable as the A340, the entertainment system was crummy.. didn't wow me as much as the one before. Also - there really is something to be said about a new-looking interior.. especially on a decent lengthed flight. Those little things, like the headset not working, the seat table being kinda broken..
That's before being stuck beside obnoxious rude people, and having crappy turbulence on the descent in, the long delay, and all the other things than you can't blame the airline for
