QUESTION:


I was going to post some general info in a Wiki. Searching for AC info, I found an interesting link.

Looking at the routes listed, it seems strange as AC does not fly to many pf these directly.

The copyright mark on the bottom does indicate 2016.

Can you guys take a look and let me know your thoughts on whether this is useful for a Wiki. Also, does it look like was designed for non-Canadian audiences?

If not useful for Wiki, I can eventually delete this post.

Thanks in Advance.

The plane spotter community in YQB is pretty excited about that flight. There is a lot of chatter regarding the visit of a 767. Typically, the largest aircraft we get in YQB is a TS A310!

Some people seem to think this is a military charter.

Guaranteed Reservations in Economy Class

When a flight is booked to capacity, simply reserve a seat in Economy Class on flights operated by Air Canada and Air Canada Express, with the purchase of a full-fare ticket (booking class Y) at least 6 hours prior to departure. This also applies to one travel companion who must be on the same reservation. This does not apply to Flight Pass reservations, or on Air Canada flights numbered AC1600 to AC1799.
The flight numbers do not fall in this range... just sayin'.
