YVR-YYZ shows J1, but the list isn't visible until SYD-YVR is PD, which should hopefully be soon given that you're on board.

These arenít the pancakes youíre looking for

And yes YVR YYZ is now J1. It was J0 at the time I posted before Itís within 24h now or is this some other strange thing with this special flight?

The app is showing 39 of 40 booked, so J1 makes sense.

The SYD Concierge told me that SYD origin pax will only appear on the upgrade list for YVR-YYZ "after the flight takes off" from SYD.

We have another 30 min delay (at least) "to do a lock-out of the left side fuel nozzle." The technician is beside me on his phone. I am in 1A.

Looks like there are two people who were upgraded all the way through, but I suspect that was in advance from OYB fares.

Number one on the list has a confirmed seat, just no seat assignment, so that J1 is really J0.

But with a 3.5 hour delay, I expect a lot of people to move to earlier flights. Good luck.

AC34 ex-YVR now looks to be operated by a B789.

with a 3.5hr delay I wouldn't be surprised if OP arrives into YVR on AC34 and finds out they missed AC34 YVR-YYZ! (I know that is alot more likely in the other direction with AC33)

Edit: Just refreshed and saw @ChrisA330's post. Swapped (but still delayed) plane takes J cabin down from 40 to 30

Not surprising they line broke the flight given the delay

Landed in YVR, and just noticed the equipment swap-out. Great to be on the 789.

It looks like the 789 will do a 34/33 YYZ turn, and the 77L will stay in YVR and operate tonight's 33 to SYD - based on Gate numbers on ac.com.

So, did your upgrade to YYZ clear?

Cow's theory seemed reasonable that some people would SDC away from AC34 since it took on a delay. I'd also say that some others on later narrowbody aircraft would see the delay and do the opposite, balancing things out. May all be a moot point since it was booked to 39 or 40 then downgauged to a 30J cabin

Cleared and sitting in 1D!

And delayed again. It will be a late arrival into YOW tonight as I will probably miss AC496. Thanks for following the saga.

But a lot of those people (at least 7?) were just on the YVR-YYZ component, so likely would have attempted to get on an earlier flight.

And... my YYZ-YOW flight is delayed. In fact, more than half the board is red.

Weather? I mean, the snow is cleared now right? And itís perhaps a little unseasonably cold but itís not -50.

Iím assuming YYZ rather than YOW is the issue.
