I'm Flying A "Diesel 9" Tonight!

Sun Nov 05, 2000 4:21 am

I can't wait. I fly from YYC to YYZ this afternoon on an Air Canada A319 and then tonight I get to fly from YYZ-YUL on one of their good old DC-9's.

It's been 15 years since I've been on one of these birds and the only reservation that I have about the whole thing is that I am "STUCK" in the middle row. Aaaarrrggghhhhh !!!!!!!!!!! At least YYZ-YUL is about 50 minutes flying time, so it won't be too bad.

I'll post a trip report on Wednesday when I return.

It might not be full, you'll be able to move around.

The only I didn't like about my DC-9 trip was that on APP the engines spooled up and down... very annoying! Almost gave me a headache....
