Apparently that was human error at YVRAA.

For a 13hr flight, I bet the catering and pilots both time out after far less than a 6hr delay.
I bet the food doesn't time out that quick.
I suspect the caterer couldn't prepare 300+ meals with less than 6 hours notice.

I know that a 12 hour delay on SFO-YYZ caused the food (catered in YYZ) to time out. I also believe that breakfast flights out of SFO are the only ones catered in SFO.

So that gives you some idea of how long the food lasts.

If there was a nuclear war tomorrow the omelette would survive until the next day. And I would still eat it ;-)

And the banana bread that used to be served for breakfast in TATL Y would survive TWO nuclear wars...

Another indication of how long food lasts.......

I'm 99% certain it was the same food we were to be served the night before.
The stickers on the food carts had the previous nights flight number.

Just surprised how easy for the pax to open the door.

I saw pax opening doors before (on TV, not in situ), but then the slide came out ...

In this case the door just opens normally, so the door is disarmed? I see it may not need the slides if the pax can evacuate from the bridge, but that's only one exit. What if emergency requires pax to exit from multiple doors? Do they just have to jump to the tarmac below?

The "flight attendants disarm doors and cross check" you hear on the PA at the end of every flight ... has the FAs disarm the slide deployment. Which is what they do every time you pull up to the gate. In the unlikely event they need to get people off the plane at the gate it is through the jetbridge.

Routinely on my overseas flights AC remote park without of course a jet bridge.

And should an emergency occur that blocks access to the normal exit door, then presumably the other doors maybe re-armed and an emergency exit occur accordingly.

In short, being parked does not necessarily mean an emergency exit might not be triggered, although likely rare.

Person arrested onboard Air Canada flight at YVR Saturday


https://vancouver.citynews.ca/2024/0...arrest-flight/

“They just took someone off of the airplane,” the caller said. “They have like four or five cops, some cars, and this guy was like, not hogtied, but he was like tied around his legs. He was like massive. So our flights been delayed for like, over an hour.”
Delta would’ve had the guy tied up in, like, under an hour.

I see that you noticed the five likes in one sentence.

Given this, and the previous deplaning episode, clearly YVR originating fliers are a bonkers bunch.

C-FMSX

YVR last night. Ended up in the grass while being taxied from FBO to the hangar.
In this case I'm not sure, but positioning is often done by maintenance.
It's in the local news, but I can't find a link at the moment.

It was apparently the Canucks' plane.

I wonder if this is considered an offside or icing.
