Been reading the boards here for a long time. This was my first time on a jet and I was so EXCITED!!!. The reason for the trip was a student exchange my whole class went to montreal for a week.
1. Carrier: Pacific Coastal
Port Hardy,BC to Vancouver,BC
Got up 5am had breakfest out flight left at 715 AM. Went to go check in and check luggage. Boarded plane it was "free for all seating" i call it u got to sit any where. I was in the isle seat in the 4th row from the front. The seating arrangment was 1x2. It was a nice flight. FL was 9,500 ft landed in vancouver on time. My lay over was 5h
2. Air Canada
DELAYED getting into Montreal.
I checked in about 1 hour before flight time and waited in boarding area then went to go use phone to phone my mom and I got glared at by some guy who I think was
LOL. Then I boarded my seat was 29B which is a isle seat
. Take off was late for some reason. It felt like we were taxing at 50 knts LOL maybe the captain was PIU (piloting under the influence)
. Air canada does NOT have a ch9 with ATC like UAL <<:-( but their were 12 audio channels 2 were for the TV's (1 english and 1 french). Smooth flight with not much turblance about 30mins-45 mins the drink service began YAHOO
-) i had a coke. Dinner was chicken or lasgina YAHOO they had lasagina
. The news came on then a movie which was "Miss Congenilty" which was editied of course. I had to go on to the bathroom before the movie started and I held it in till about 20mins after the movie because I was scared I was gonna get stuck in those little bath rooms
so when I was in their i did not lock it but i just held the door shut LOL. Landing was bumpy.
Montreal- Toronto (Person)
Short flight it was 1h 18m I was in the isle seat again (the seating plan was 2x3x2) i was in the middle-isle. We were served a sandwich,drink, brownie and some salad that I would not even touch
. Their was a fair amount of turbulance we landed in toronto on time i think.
767-200 (same as above flight)
Same plane as Flight 413. Good take off. Drink service about 30-45 mins into flight. Movies were Boring!!!<<:-( so i mostly listened to the IFA (in flight audio) then I wanted to go to the flight deck so i asked my teacher was in a window seat so she could not get out. So my friend adrien asked for me because I was to shy to
and about 15mins later a F/A came and took me up to the FD. When i walked into the FD what did I see?? it was deja vu for me as I am a pilot for World Air Ways a Vitural airline and I fly the 767-200 alot with a highly realistic panel. When I told them i told the Captain and FO that i recknoised everything and told them i was a vitrual pilot here is the excat words:
FO: DO you get paid with a vitrual pay check?
Captain: Do you pay vitrual taxes?
Fo: DO u pay vitrual taxes with your vitrual pay check
they were really laughing at me!! LOL...we were at FL 390 (39,000) at 290 knots and 50 mins from landing. I took LOTS of pictures i will post them later. Landing in vancouver really smooth!. Also one of the F/A's was really HHOOOOTTT lol
5. Pacific Coastal
Lots of turblance. About 20mins into flight F/A came for drink service. Then snack service then candy service. So so landind we bounced once before getting on ground. I was the first passanger on the plane so i got to sit in very front window
before we left i got a pic of part of the analog FD. After we landed I was the last one off because i got to talk to the FO!!
we were talking about flight sims and he said the 767 is only faster and carries more people then the shorts 360 what a :-\ he was crazy saying that LOL.
Air Canada Flights: 8/10 (because of FD visit!!)
Pacafic Coastal Flights: 5/10 (-3 cause of it was really loud in the cabin BUT i got to talk to the FO.
Hope ya liked this flight report. It was my first time on a commerical jet.
