Air Canada, Not As Bad As A Though!

Sat Jun 09, 2001 10:57 am

Hi everyone,
I'm back from my trip around Eastern Canada on AC.
(See my other Trip Report for my first 2 flights)
A good experience except maybe for some little things,
but it doesn't matter... Here's the trip report

May 6th, Halifax (YHZ-Nova Scotia)-Toronto Pearson (YYZ)
Air Canada 607 departing at 9:30 a.m;
I was suppose to take the 7:55 am flight but I called Air Can. to see I'f their was still room on the 9:30 am flight and they transfered me with no problem.
I arrived at the airport about an hour prior to departure.
The Check-in agent was friendly and made a fast and efficient check-in. So, I walked to the gate where our A320 was waiting. They began boarding around 9:25 and we were in the air about 15-minutes later and I'll say the flight was about 75% full in economy. Curiously, they served us a lunch; AC's traditionnal Beef au poivre or Chicken. When I took my first flight on AC 6 years ago, they served us exactly the same thing. (Poor passenger that flies 20 or 30 times per year on AC, they always eat the same thing!!!). The flight was very smooth at flight level 350 (35000 feets). The flight lasted about 2 hours and we landed on schedule in T. O.
The FA's were very friendly and always smiling and the plane was VERY CLEAN (that is something I like from AC). A good flight and the captain was talking a lot compared to my last flight on Canada 3000.

June 6th (same day) on a beautiful evening in Toronto.
AC 428, YYZ-YUL, 21:00 (9:00pm) Ac: 767-200;
Nothing much to say on that flight, it lasted only 40 minutes but we were late of about 45 minutes (took-off at 9:40 pm). They served us soft drinks and snacks, the FA's seemed tired. Not turbulent at 31000 ft.

Hope you enjoyed, questions 'cause I know I haven't been in the details.

Regards, SafeFlyer Smile
