Sorry, no new colors here. It will be arriving at about 2115 and leaving at 2200. It will be parked at United's gate 17 in Terminal C. Anyone in BOS with your camera, get ready!
Unfortunately I left mine at home.
Enjoy!

AC's Star Alliance 763 was in LGA Sunday night 11-28 also due to (I assume) IROPS and heavy loads !

IROP = Irregular Operation - usually playing catch up following aircraft going tech or some other problem like weather.

IROP - Irregular Operations

Usually done when there are delays and cancellations and the airline has to bring in different/new aircraft to transport the stranded passengers or re-directed passengers.

I assume the weather was the problem, but what type of weather. It was windy on the east coast, but nothing too severe.

Rain wind and a ground delay program was the culprit yesterday in BOS. Our earlier flight to and from YYZ had cancelled due to the severe delays and therefore the later flight was upgraded to a 763 to accomodate all of the passengers and cargo.
It's the first time in a long time that AC has sent a 767 into BOS. Did anyone see it or are there any pictures out there?? I was too busy dealing with the very cranky passengers.

Air Canada has by far some of the most idiot, asshole passengers Ive ever witnessed

Of course, giving Air Canada a hard time is just about as enjoyable as playing hockey for Canadians.

The passengers, who may not be Canadians, while being somewhat sterotypical really isn't derogatory towards a particular group of people.

I had a flight US1485, left at 10:55, weather was lovely, equipments was an A321, took off and our right wing picked up rather roughly, due to the wind, I was sitting in 22F so I got the good view, bumpy flight all the way down to CLT. Ill be back spotting BOS early December on college break.

Did that US bird have jet power at every seat including coach?

BIGBlack,
Yes, I didnt notice them untill we were gettin off in CLT, but all the seats (coach included) certainly do have jet power.
