Flying Standby to Japan mid July

Would it be difficult? I am a solo traveler. First time using this standby system. I'm an actual employee of a company so i'm not doing the buddy pass. I believe it puts me in a better priority based on research.

I'm flying from Toronto to Narita if anyone is curious. I have 1 stop in Calgary. With AC

My main question is would this seem rough with it being middle of summer?

It sounds like you have a confirmed ticket for YYZ-YYC-NRT. What exactly are you hoping to stand by on? There's only one flight per day from YYC to NRT.

That's not how I read the post. The original poster may very well be a new AC employee. And should be able to check loads with the internal tools available on the Employee Travel portal. So basically the question being posted to FT'ers is "how full have your YYC-NRT flights been in the summer".

Of course, the usual risks of employee standby travel always apply. And discussing actual load data on FT as someone with access is a sure-fire way to attract negative attention of AC's security people. But anecdotal experiences can be useful.
