Japan Arrivals From Covid-19 countries sleep in cardboard boxes for 48hours!

OK, it may not be AC specific but this may have some effect on AC passengers who must for whatever reason go to Japan still. This iis in the UK Edition of Business Traveller. Regardless, it just...

OP Adds further comment

I have to agree with tcook052 on this.
My only purpose in raising the question initially was to highlight the problem encountered by the 96 year old man in question.

In particular to highlight...

Well that's interesting as one of our other passports is Irish too (born in Dublin!).
We always use our Irish Passports in the API because they permit easier and sometimes longer visa-free access to...

Dual-Citizen Canadians must have a Canadian Passport to fly to Canada

An interesting quote on CTV News highlights a problem for a 96 year old dual Canadian-British Citizen denied boarding in Jamaica when returning to Canada from a funeral. This relatively new rule,...

This is when listening to ATC gets interesting!

No doubt the CNE airshow has a significant effect on YYZ operations, AC in particular, as well as area traffic handled by Toronto Centre.

OK, so it's only a few days a year - but if you're...

It's All A Matter of Preference; but to each his own!

When I live in Edmonton I object as a matter of principle to AC dictating what Canadian port of entry/exit I must use. Of course I take this further as an Albertan to being forced on occasion to...

So Much of THis Discussion is a Matter of Convenience and Opinion

As far as access to the West End of London I have to agree that LHR likely provides best connections. For Central London, the City business area and the East End the Thameslink service from LGW is...

Cool Gatwick Express is neither the best nor only option from LGW to Central London

Yes, LHR is THE route for anyone seeking the multitude of available onward air connections from there!

But, to get into central London from Gatwick there are far more options than just the Gatwick...

Thumbs down Aeroplan Email Profile Nonsense!

Just wondering if anyone else has received annoying emails from Aeroplan demanding that their email address be changed.

It seems that in the process of "upgrading" their systems Aeroplan and/or...

Surely diversion or return to Canada depends on the flights location

While ability to divert is always possible, returning to YVR (even for the YYZ flight) would be a matter of logistics as to where the flight is and the remaining fuel on board. Diversions to Japan or...

Can the MCAS on AC's Boeing 737MAX8 be locked "off" by pilots?

While many of us on here are very understandably preoccupied and concerned about two major accidents with this Boeing model and are worried simply because, depending on what route we must fly, there...

Thank you SuperCargo - for the Super Quote (below)

As a 78 year old (with a 73 year old more tolerant [of AC] wife) I share your more relaxed attitude to AC's many shortcomings. And of course AC does love us oldies who are (generally) more easy going...

Wink Welcome to AC's Best SD for a qualified comment!

It's really funny to see some of the comments on here, and the fact that anyone who "wants their own way" - whether it's blinds up or down (or shades adjusted by the SD "their" way) is always being...

Shades Up Forever - but common sense should prevail, where possible!

Being in Canada (YYZ) and loving to travel to NE Asia / SE Asia / South Pacific and totally enjoying the ever changing window view and as such, always a proponent of "SHADES UP" we do try to use a...

Good point regarding point of origin

I think we're all posting based upon cooleddie's observations while on board.

We don't really know where this group started their journey; YYZ or inbound from further east perhaps.
Nor for that...

Surely the adults making the reservations also had responsibility to plan better

Not to let AC off the hook by any means, but whether one is a multi-million mile FF or an occasional random traveller surely some additional common sense is called for in winter. Looking at ACs...

Oh dear, I seem to have upset someone!

I think it is just a matter of common sense that all airlines follow this practice and certainly common throughout most of the world, except possibly the US.
As to Planespotters, whatever that may...

Perhaps I should have been more specific. I am referring to the civil registration (such as C-GHPQ for fin 801) and not corporate logos.

Question Why does AC not have registrations appear on wing undersides?

While I know that it is optional under Canadian law I'm just wondering why Air Canada aircraft do not have identification appear on wing undersides?

I do not see any other airlines with this...

Thumbs up Thank you YXUflyboy!

Looks like it's going to be 12HK westbound and 12AC eastbound again on the 767 early fall!
If they do switch to the 788 I hope we'll be allowed to buy-up to the same seats in PY!

Question So will AC9/10 767 be replaced by 788 in 2019?

Just expanding on my op question/comments, I see two possibly conflicting pieces of information and am hoping that someone much better informed than I am can help clarify.

In one case we hear that...

No specific background or references re the 777s; just personal experiences, and worse more recently.
