I didn't see it mentioned in this thread but I understand that these aircraft will be operationally restricted to a maximum altitude of FL290. This is due to the engine issue in which compressor...

January 29 is one example. I became aware of this because a friend booked an itinerary with this flight specifically for the A330's lie-flat seats. He wasn't aware of these non-compliant versions...

YYC-OGG. This is not surprising as Hawaii has always been regarded as a junk route by AC and a dumping ground for the ugly sisters of the fleet.

I was in 3H/3K a few days ago and the middle seats (3D/3F) appeared to have better recline. Seats 4D/4F had the best recline -- pretty close to lie-flat.

It was CP128 and CP127, same flight number for both segments. I still have paper tickets from that route. When AC took over they made it AC3128 and AC3127. Then they changed it later. I also remember...

This struck a nerve with me and I very much sympathize with the OP.

YYC-YYZ is a frequent route for me and AC's decision to partially (for now?) rouge this route is nauseating. Every...

My wife did OGG-YVR on Omni this week and described it as "awful". Her biggest complaint was seat comfort. She will definitely not consider flying them again.

Hawaii re-rouged

Haven't seen this posted but Hawaii appears to be another casualty of the MAX8 grounding. Starting April 1 the YVR-OGG route is back to rouge. :mad:

I didn't talk to any other pax so I don't know what they received. I didn't ask for compensation. I was handed $30 in meal vouchers at the gate, received two emails shortly after arriving back at...

I'm curious as to where the report of $10 compensation originated. Was it from an FTer (which I would consider reliable) or from a media source such as CBC (which I wouldn't).

As it happens, I was...

I thought I was being charitable. 7 months of winter is a more appropriate characterization of SFO than YVR!

(I live in Hawaii, so "winter" has a different meaning to me ;) )

OSS at YVR

Just connected from US thru YVR yesterday. Haven't done that for a while and was surprised to see OSS implemented. When did that happen?

Unlike the SFO occurrence in which they did inadvertently switch the active frequency to GND while on final, that doesn't appear to be the case here. Tower only transmitted "go around" once and it...

I suspect the airlines would prioritize cost. Burn more fuel, spend less money wins over burn less fuel, spend more money.

No.

Setting aside oceanic routes, there are no "prescribed" enroute speeds at flight levels. I've certainly never heard of speed restrictions varying by flight level. If someone has information to...

I don't know for a "fact" but I state this with a very high confidence level. It's hard to prove a negative, right? This being a measure partly to improve OTP numbers sounds perfectly plausible to me.

Right. But also westerly winds at flight levels tend to be (on average) more intense during winter. Look at the flight times for opposite direction flights (YVR-YUL). The...

Not surprising. That's where the demand is. I've taken the YVR-HNL flight many, many times over the years. And upon arrival I would do exactly what many other pax on the flight would do ... walk over...
