Question On The 763

Wed Jan 16, 2002 9:08 am

Hello everyone,

Just a quick question. In April, I will be flying to LAX from YYZ with Air Canada in the 763 I believe. My previous flights have all been on smaller aircraft such as the 737's , and A319, MD-80. Can anyone give me any information on what it is like to fly in the 767. What it is like inside or even what kind of service I might receive on Air Canada, this being my first time flying with them.

Thanks very much,

It is unfortunate that they discontinued jump seating.
 Sad AC is a very good airline. You can expect good service and smiling faces. The 763 is a wonderful and powerful aircraft. You will be amazed and love it. Ask for a pre-flight cockpit tour, and file a trip report!

 Big thumbs up

I flew on an Air Canada 767-200 (hope that doesn't disqualify me) from YYZ-SFO about 2 years ago. I had flown into Toronto on the redeye A320, which I preferred - but only because the service was better. The 767 is a much more comfortable aircraft, especially for transborder travel. The coach config was 2-3-2 and I was blessed with an aisle seat.

In 1999 Air Canada was voted #1 Passenger Service Airline in the World (I think it was Air Transport World that bestowed this honor); in 2000/2001 it was named Safest Airline in the World.

My last trip with them was to Edmonton in January of 2001, which was a codeshare with CP (or what was then left of it). Since you're not flying domestically within Canada (where AC has a monopoly) you're likely to receive, shall we say, "competitive" service.

Pancakes are delicious.
