Once I got booked on a YFI -YYC flight, booked a flight YYC-YEG to meet a friend and flew back to YYC to catch a flight to YVR then LAX a...

Re: What is your favorite widebody aircraft?

A340 followed by the L1011, DC10/MD11 and 747.

Widebody twin jets are like SUVS, they're everywhere, look the same and have no personality.

Hard to believe, but I've flown on many types, yet some how, all these years, I've still managed to avoid the 777 - haven't logged a single flight on one.
