I think the view is...

...modern vs. old:
Boeing 788-8 vs. Boeing 767-300

...comfortable vs. uncomfortable:
Airbus A340-300 vs. Boeing 767-300

Although I am not sure if a 2-2-2 vs. 1-1-1 in C and 2-4-2 vs. 2-3-2 layout in Y is really more comfortable.

767/333/343 confort is generally judged as the same, save for those thankfully few companies who have tried to jam another seat in.

The comment was directed solely at the LHR route I'm pretty sure.

Finally I can travel to Europe directly from YOW in a modern aircraft!


How is a 25yr+ A343 any more "modern" than a 30yr+ 763ER?

I meant the Air Canada 788 service to LHR.

Does YOW have enough widebody gates? I think gate 17 or 15 one the 763 usually use.

YOW is a nice airport, but having a full 788 and A343 arrive at the same time will be a big change capacity wise for the airport. I know they’re expanding the security area


There's plenty of space. Gates 14 and 15 are the usual LHR/FRA gates. 12 can also handle widebody international arrivals. 22 is also widebody on the domestic side, plus 17, but if 17 has a widebody, 16 is blocked from being used.
