  • AIR CANADA Mex-Yyz-Fco

    This is my first trip report, I'll be glad to receive your comments and suggestions, thanks. I began to travel alone as a UM since 9, and without UM service since I was 12 y/o... since then I continue to travel all summers making new experiences and even if I was attracted by planes since little this journeys have remarked my passion and make me want to be a commercial pilot. Since I founded I haven't done any trip report till now...
    As I said...I use to come in Italy for my summer vacations, and this is the 2nd time I fly Air Canada.

    The first flight schedule was changed instead of leaving MMMX at 07.00am, now it departs at 00.55am so i had a full day to spend at Toronto, because flight to Rome leaves at 08.25 pm.

    Departure at the airport.
    Check in was really fast because the A319 is not a huge plane, so I waited in line for about 30 minutes... I got there early at 10.00pm ( 3 hours before). My bags were checked in all the way to Rome.

    At the check in desk I was told to be at gate 25 for the announcement of our real gate.. they made us wait for about 30 minutes and the we saw our plane arrive to that gate so boarding started immediately.... I DONT STILL GET IT WHY THE HECK DOES MEXICAN AIRPORT AUTHORITIES THINK SPOTTING AIRPLANES OR TAKE PICS TO THE MONITOR WITH THE SCHEDULE AND DEP TIME IS A THREAT.... so I'm sorry I don't have any MMMX PICS

    Ready To GO....

    So my first flight:
    TOTAL MILES: 6,420

    Airline:Air Canada (AC)

    A319 EXTREME MAKE OVER.... Nice plane but he had a CHARGED DINNER... even if I wasn't very hungry at 2.00am.

    normal leg space...

    Service was nice... not much to do on a red-eye flight, and I asked for a 2 bucks pillow-blanked which I never got hahahah... so just a nappy till Toronto after a nice movie.

    early .... we began our descent to Toronto.

    Our arrival to Toronto, 6.30am.... B-777 parked at gate 177.

    Tailshot with the early morning light.

    I spent all day at Toronto's Downtown, I found so much kind and nice persons.... Great City Toronto....

    At 5.30 pm I was back for my 2nd flight.... Trans Canada Airline Plane Parked.. nice retro livery.

    AND MY 2ND FLIGHT.... Destination : FINALLY..ROME!!!!

    Airport, CHECK- IN
    I didn't do check in, i went to an Air Canada desk with an AC employee and she kindly gave me my gate number and reconfermed me that my baggage was check-in till Rome, in 5 minutes I perfectly went over security. Really efficent airport YYZ!

    Everything was going so smooth i had pleanty of time to walk around T1 and spot every plane I wanted to (nOt like at MEX)

    For a first time flight reviewer I was impressed! You did a great job of writing your review for us. Not too many pics, not overly detailed, just enough information to keep me reading. (This coming from a person who doesn't usually read the review, just looks at the pics, because in some reviews, if you scroll down fast enough, it's like a movie at 1 frame per second)

    Can't wait for your next review!

          Cool FR, I liked all your photos. Btw, just an observation, I think the AZ aircraft at YYZ is a 763, not a 777.

                      I think you will find its a 763 not a 777 because there are two exit door over the wings, a 777 dosent have that
