They still have the 787 operating the route - this will replace the 319 runs I’m guessing. I’d rather the 220 then the CRJ 5+ hour flights to Huston.
It's always a red-letter day when Air Canada rolls out a modern aircraft to replace their usual 25 year-old A320s or the 30 year-old B767s still toiling away on overseas routes.
Using flight number 797? After the disaster in 1983?
I was surprised by that as well. I guess they don't always retire a number as American still uses Flight 1, even though there have been two fatal incidents with that associated number.
I like A220 BUT I also am perfectly happy with 767's provided that the upholstery and sound systems are in good condition. What would a passenger have against 767's? Airlines are phasing them out because of less good fuel economy and increased maintenance costs due to age, but passengers mostly like this model!
