I initially planned to do this flight in Business as the price difference between Y and J was minimal ($300+ vs $400+). However, price for Tango dropped significantly and I bought the tickets at $191 (excluding seat selection and baggage fee) while the price of Business Class remained at about $460. One month before travel, I tried my luck with a bid of $120 USD per person for upgrade but as expected the bid failed. I wasn’t too hard up for the upgrade especially after my experience on AC 307 (this flight was operated on Airbus A319). It has the exact hard product as the A320 (which wasn’t great).

My flight from Montreal to Vancouver was initially booked on AC 309 which was scheduled to fly on an Airbus A330. The A330 features the classic pod (which I have reviewed here) in a 1-1-1 configuration, similar to that of the 767. Few months before my flight, I was switched to AC 307. Although the flight timing is better (5pm instead of 7pm), I got downgraded to an A320. The A320 uses the domestic recliner seat instead of the full flat seat. I tried to change my flight to AC 311 which uses a Dreamliner but I had no luck even up to 1 week before travel.

Looking forward to my upcoming long trip (after my last one in 2015). Will be doing the following reviews:

Canada was fun but a little hectic. 3 nights in 3 different locations:
- Niagara Falls
- Missisauga (Pearson International Airport)
We were quite lucky that the both days we were in Toronto and Niagara Falls, the temperatures were higher than that of Boston! The day we left Toronto for Niagara Falls, Toronto was enveloped in thick fog while for Niagara, it started to rain. Thanks to a clear weather, we had a magnificent 360 degree view of Toronto from CN Tower (where we had our dinner). A sunny noon in Niagara gave us opportunity for photo taking of the falls and the weather held up the following morning to allow us to enjoy Hornblower Cruise. The good weather we had in Niagara allowed us a magnificent view of the falls from our hotel, Sheraton On The Falls. Not long after we left Niagara, it started to rain pretty heavily.

We spent 2 days in Boston which was colder than New York (at about 5 to 9 Celcius) but without any rain. Boston was a completely different city than what New York is. It was more scenic, idyllic and not as intense with less people movement (probably it was a Sunday). Although I was not feeling too well (due to flare up of my Allergic Rhinitis), we had a fun day on the Duck Tour.
