I flew on the DEL -YVR flight back in March 4th 2019 and the Pakistan/India conflict really did a number on AC's flight schedule to India.

Personally, I think the mask needs to be larger on bigger aircraft as the mask gets a bit lost on the 777-300 and 787. The mask seems to make a bigger statement on smaller aircraft like the CRJ's and the C series, if NAVI is any indication. https://issuu.com/spafax/docs/air-canada-navi-08-201710/10
