Here she was in YVR ten days ago; the oldest member of the fleet making the newest member stop and hold short.
TCC has been holed up in the main AC hangar much of the latter part of Aug and early Sept, with the odd local excursion, and always eliciting comments from other AC pilots on frequency.

So tiny compared to that boeing.

Yet the seat pitch is likely greater in the 10A.

AC should sell tickets on this bird like LH does on their Junkers Ju 52.

Perhaps even special runs YVR-YYJ/YLW, YYC-YEG, YYZ-YOW/YUL so that people could insert a very cool experience into what would be a normal flight between a normal city-pair.

Cool. Anyone have ATC from YVR of that?

Absolutely, back when flying was unaffordable to anyone except the ultra-wealthy. Now even people of limited means can do things like go to Mexico for a week.

In keeping with their brilliant PR strategy, Air Canada's media relations and advertising unit can sell tickets as an "Amelia Earhart Experience" and do a fly past of Gimli MB.
