Trip Report - Air Canada HNLSYD Flight 33

After taking the SFO SYD non-stop on United Airlines a couple times last year, I decided to break up the trip this time by going SFOHNL and then HNL to Sydney on Air Canada. I am sure this is not a well traveled routing, since there is a bit of a layover in HNL -- in addition, the check-in staff did not have me on the "list" since I was a local departing passenger.

The flight orignates in Vancouver and simply "stops" in Honolulu for fuel and a crew change. Almost all the passengers on the HNLSYD leg are continuing on from Vancouver.

I like the 2-3-2 seating of the 767, since there is only ONE middle seat per row. In addition the center section allows the middle seated person to exit on the right or left -- reducing the up and down for the aisle person.

I did notice that there is Audio/Visual equipment in the overhead bins above seats 24AB and 25AB. There is no overhead space on these seats and the flight attendant has to lean in to operate the equipment. These would probably be the worst seats on the 767-300.

The flight was about 3/4 full, so the middle seat next to me was open -- making for an enjoyable flight. Although when sitting in the middle section in row 25 or higher, forget about seeing the big movie screen. There are some TV montiors at row 29 in the Aisle, which might help the folks in the back see the movie.

The service was consistant (which is good) -- but not very friendly. The flight attendants are very senior -- as this is probably a nice work routing to get with HNL and SYD layovers.

One wierd thing is they spray the cabin upon landing in Sydney. They say this is due to Austrailian Regulatations, but is seems odd since other flights I have been on to Sydney dont get sprayed.

Even though this routing takes longer, it still makes for a more enjoyable flight experience in my opinion (ie 767 seating, HNL Stopover, etc). However, this flight will go away in Dec 2007, according to an Air Canada Press Release.

The airline also has cancelled plans for other US- Australia flights per the press release - "With the introduction of non-stop service to Sydney, the carrier has suspended near-term plans to operate flights to Australia via Los Angeles in view of the lack of necessary authorizations at this time to operate the route."
