je me souviens

Hello everyone and welcome to this series of report in 2016 that took me to La Belle Province for the first time.

Back then the main criterai for me to choose were both the price and the time of flying, to maximise my travelling days without taking many days off. For instance I chose a return flight that was landing at 6.30am, just in time for me to have a quick shower at home and be in the office at 9am.

I checked and at the time I paid £625 for the whole journey, out and return which is really not bad at all.
So here is the routing.

at london - gatwick airport

I arrived at Gatwick airport by train - it is by fat the best way to get there from central London.

The train station is on the north terminal and unfortunately for me the flight was scheduled from the North Terminal - which implies an extra journey with the train transfer service.

onboard the b767

I remember the priorities were called by status on Star Alliance and Business class.
Whilst they were boarding, I took a picture of our bird.

I arrived onboard and I remember thought that they seemed nice for a low-cost.. Very similar to the Smart and Best on Air France…
Funny thing is the headrest is made of leather, but the rest of the seat is made of textile.. never seen a mix like this before.

This is my row..

I started to unpack my stuff and the older guy next to me started to unpack too, getting out of his backpack two MASSIVE books. By massive I meant Les miserables or Germinal kind of massive.

I was really impressed to have someone I could talk litterature to, little did I start looking at his books that I realised that…

there is no IFE!! and no cabin screens!! 

Whaaaaaaaaaaaatttt. 8 hours without any sort of entertainment? S***T! This is why Flight Report is SO IMPORTANT! 

When you go onto the website and read about Air Canada Rouge, they carefully avoid showing you the back of the seats…

The guy next to me told me that there was an app to watch series and movies…

Well guess what..

And there were no plugs to charge the battery of my phone neither…

So 8 hours of just wondering things about life, why not in a while…

Air Canada rouge is a bit a of an Hybrid airline as there is Buy on board..

But they also offered a free meal..

much later on, after having thought of the world and antique greek philosophy, I went to the convenience room … :P

To offer you this great view from the cabin! XD

And ready for landing..

The B767 is nice plane, feels almost similar to the B772 but a bit quieter.

And the final view on 767, next to its successor, the dreamliner.

As you can see I arrived at terminal 1, gate E70.

London - LGW


Toronto - YYZ



LGW: A bit hectic to go to the North terminal as usual, the food court was crowded but at least a lot of services available

Air Canada Rouge: The seats are about to be above the average for a long haul low-cost aircraft but the non working in flight display on own device and the lack of IFE is an absolute no.

YYZ: A big airport, a lot of lenghty corridors but clean and with a good amount of services.

    Wow, cool to see an AC Rouge TATL report as they're kinda rare. A shame they retired the 767s...I wonder how they'll be able to serve TATL route now that travel is picking back up. I know they are running some 737 MAX as rouge TATL, but that's obviously limited range so not many options. Will be interesting to see what happens to Rouge in a post-Covid world (assuming post-Covid ever happens!)

    So 8 hours of just wondering things about life, why not in a while…

    You should thanks Rouge for 8 hours of's not often we get to be alone with our thoughts in this modern world ?

    Thanks for sharing Chris!

      Well yes Plato and I were the best of friends in my mind for 8 hours ahah
      I thing i tried to solve the meaning of life!!

      BUt seriously not being shallow here but 8 hours stuck on a small seat without a screen... If at least it was the 50's and there were loads of booze at the bar!
