    At the heart of your flight experience in the airplane you are on. Through itself and Jazz Air, Air Canada runs a fleet of 325 aircraft comprised of 13 different aircraft types (as of February 5, 2011). The type of aircraft your flight is operating on is noted on your itinerary using the aircraft code, which is listed after the aircraft name below. The official Air Canada fleet information can be found here: Air Canada - Our Fleet


    Information and links for each aircraft type is listed below, with a split between mainline, Jazz and regional partner aircraft.

    Great work!

    You could also throw in the Executive Firs Mini Bar setup on 77L's and 77W's. Those are definitely a highlight to AC C.

    Consider it on the edit list. Looks like it is ~80 points to hit silver status, so once I'm there I'll go back and edit in the rest.

    Edit: Edit done.

    They changed it sometime today, based on multiple requests. It's good to see that the MiPo team is continuously monitoring and responsive!

    I believe that except for the Dashs and the Beechcrafts I have been on all of them!

    Even did a Saab between YWG and YQR (scared the heck out of the spouse).

    If you want scary, try a Fairchild Metroliner, now there is real fun fun. Nothing like getting to your seat on your knees, enjoying the fabric curtain to the toilet or the use of a snow brush to clean the wings of snow before take off![​IMG]
