Black belly doesn't dance in IFE

On AC33 and was was staring at the ife ignoring all the newb gawking e35 eups. Thought I was wasted drunk but I noticed the black belly fin 843 in the opening screen is not animated. I miss the old dreamliner swaying in the silly loop video...

​​​​​as I was handed my stubby water bottle... Why don't they just precater that crap... Oh wait we are delayed at least an hour... Never mind

Is that newbs gawking AT e35 eups, newb e35s gawking at something after having been eup'd, or e35 eups gawking at newbs?

Furthermore, given your admission of less than optimal mental condition - are you sure there ever was an swaying animated dreamliner? Maybe it was the observer that was swaying animatedly.

I believe he was making fun of the E35Ks who eUped (for the first time ever?), while he had purchased a Latitude FP that allowed a complimentary upgrade into J, thereby making him better than everyone else.

Since when did AC have a lat FP that allowed a comp up on TPAC?

Maybe if you weren't just a FOTSG, you'd realize 33 flies YYZ-YVR

Heh. And you'd also realize that an E35 eup on the YVR-SYD segment would never be successful.

We were in YVR waitng for a delayed AC34 to YYZ a few weeks back. Called the concierge who asked, seriously, if we were "going the while way thru to SYD." I explained that we were not, nor was anyone else on the flight. She kept insisting that it continued on to SYD. I should have tried have her change my ticket..... because she works at an airport and knows these things.

Drink Cargo. You're right. On the 77L (FRA-YYC), the Rocket Raccoon is completely static.

What? Is this now a thing? Does each of us get to start our own inane thread with content that somehow relates to the essence of our FT username?

You declined a free SYD mileage run?

Speaking of non bouncing belly's.

The Sept update of the IFE now has Air Canada @ 80 in the top right corner as well as a selection about the fleet

Yes, the update happened last week.

New IFE selections.

No more stupid and annoying hipster/millennial thrusting American Tourhipster luggage commercials, sponsored by owner Samsonite.

Plane belly remains still.

A quick flip through old email shows that I've been upgraded 5 times between 2009 and 2012 on AC33/34 TPAC as an 35K elite.

I was upgraded a lot for YVR-HKG in that same time frame as E35 as well.

But both of those routes are rare to have an e35k upgrade to J since 2014 due to numerous reasons. More business class purchases, eupgrade devaluation, eup copay, LMU, bid to upgrade, reduction in R space, etc.
