Okay, if this flight gets changed to an A320, I suggest we all gather together at a predetermined spot. Perhaps in front of the check in booths. from there, we'll determine a course of action. Lots of yelling, screaming, and shoes can come off and be thrown. I think someone is teasin' us (at least I...Jump to post
AC7e7, Aren't they positioning hte '47 for maintenance or something? that's why it's flying back to <acronym title="Toronto - Lester B.

It's too bad that more of my aviation friends couldn't eat thsi one up. For the tango fare (I think we paid 74 or 79$? can't remember) you CANNOT miss this. The simple fact that it's a EASY way to get onto a 747 for perhaps, as is my case, the first and probably only time.. We're travelling domestic...Jump to post
Usually when a CEO "resigns" it usually means that there is a no-confidence move against him/her with the board of directors. The company would appear to be in some trouble for sure, as we all know. -- They also may have a recovery plan on-the-ready, and perhaps the CEO was not quite willing to foll...Jump to post

AC, you're sitting a few rows ahead of us and on the other sdie fo the plane
I'm hoping that 36 J & K don't have blocked windows.. From pics it doesn't appear that way haha
Look for the guy with the Canon EOS Digital Rebel hahaha
I"ll be with a lovely lady in row 36 J & K, just behind the emergency exit row on the right side of the plane
Look into it and stuff if you don't mind?
I don't know what our plans are yet though.. I have to find out.. I"m travelling with someone else too
How would we go about doing that? I thought that was for Exec Class only?
Forgive my ignorance, I'm not a seasoned Domestic flyer
Are there any dress codes, etc?
Thanks.. So, will there be any fanfare for this flight? I.E, acknowledgements that it's the last domestic flight?
Does ANYONE know? haha
We're taking Westjet at 8 am in the morning. I'm hoping to catch a 73NG with winglets at least...
I'm looking forward to possibly meeting you all!
AC7E7 , WELCOME Aboard!
Then MAYBE we'd finally meet HAHA
Hope to see you there

Karan69, Sorry for my harsh words.. They weren't directly directed to you, more to anyone who really feels the way you were mentioning. -- I apologize if they sounded harsh.

I should have acknowledged that I wasn't aware that they may have been different families of engines.. You are correct, thanks for pointing it out and reminding me.
OMG you guys all look like typical Canadians in the hill picture. Lots of brush and grass, and you all look *Freezing* HAHAHA --- PRICELESS! I hope to make it out next spring/summer guys. I'll be there all winter off and on. I know i've met AWspicious, another Tony who seems to be there a lot but is...Jump to post
Hasn't that same seal been the same problem at UA and BA recently?
Perhaps they have a design flaw of the engine?
(NOT a slag on the 777 either folks, so please don't jump down my throat).
Karan69, You can bet your bottom dollar that there had to be some kind of threat, whether it be true or not. Right now, with the election around the corner, they (The US) is NOT taking any chances. I don't blame them. As for it "always" being a Middle Eastern country, that's a bunch of bulls*** and ...Jump to post

No matter what, you can't please everyone.. The new colour is .. a change. Something that I think everyone has missed.

To all who can: Take the plunge. This will be my first and possibly only ever 747 flight.

It still amazes me that we didnt' even get 3 posts into this thread and the A vs B machine was already being full-throttled from idle. That's all I'm gonna say on that. I can't wait for this day.

What the US Economy is built on. Competition.
Airbus didn't have a plane that would rival or compete with the 747. So, they're building one.
Whether it's needed or not is to be determined, but just look at the root simple fact. Competition.
Aa777flyer, If you go back and read the article, she did not ask anyone to donate anything.

All my joking aside, I tend to agree with the 'bad materials' assessment. The designs wouldn't pass if they weren't structurally sound.

Purolator Courier is a package-moving company, just like FedEx or UPS.
We have a ground network, as well as a Air network. We have (I believe) 14 aircraft (727 freighters) as well as many many thousands of ground vehicles.
