LAX-YYZ on AC: what to expect?

Hi
I will fly LAX-YYZ on AC, and I wondered what to expect.
Will we be charged for the IFE?
Free drinks?
A/c type is 763

Thanks

Are you flying economy or business class?

Based on your question, I assume economy class, in which case you can get free IFE and non-alcoholic drinks. (Make sure to bring your own headphones since those aren't free).

Alcoholic drinks and snacks/light meals are available for purchase and I've found the value/quality to be somewhat better than on other airlines, but nothing to get overly excited about.

IFE is free if working, have to pay for headphones
No drinks, no food, have to pay.

Crew most likely will be typically sour.

Be happy it's a 767 rather than the miserable 787 Y

OP, the above FTer respond is about alcohol drinks. As Jasper2009 already respond, non-alcohol drinks are complementary.

If you haven't book your flights yet and will be booking on AC Web site, send me a PM and I will send you a promo code that will allow you to have CAD $9.95 toward the onboard food/beverages purchase. Here is the link to their menu online aircanada.com/aircanadacafe

I saw your message too late

Finally, the flight was good.
IFE was a bit old but not too bad for a 3h50 flight.
Free non-alcoholic beverages and free earphones

Free earphones in Y? On a TB flight at that?

TB = TransBorder = flight between a Canadian city and a U.S. city.

Maybe their machine was broken. I know people who got a free meal when the machine wasn't cooperating. How much are these earpohines anyway, $3.50? I'd actually have bought a pair in the past if they offered half decent ones for say $20.

Free headphones are sometimes given out in Y for NA flights that are delayed.

Sit next to a FTer who has a bag of 300 headphones inexplicably accumulated.
