lynnejoel1015 - Since I started this thread, you must be talking about me!

Yes, I'm crazy about civilian aircrafts. My first trip across the Pacific was in 1971 when I was just 4 weeks old. That was on a Northest 747.

And even today, I'm probably one of few adults who actually look forward to a 15+ hour plane ride, in coach.

Anyways, getting back on topic, I'm glad that the pilots at AC have come to their senses, and AC will indeed upgrade their long-haul aircrafts.

Also, I forgot about Thai in my original post as one of the A340-500 operators. But of course, their JFK-BKK flight isn't doing as well, and is cut back to 3 flights a week from daily. SQ is going to dump their A345 anytime and switch to the 772LR. Emirates doesn't fly any route that absolutely requires a A345 (unless it starts non-stop to the US West Coast).

lynnejoel, no worries. I don't mind being called a nerd! Like rkkwan, I've had a life-long fascination with air travel. For the last several years I've been maximizing my qualifying miles on Air Canada so that I can get those precious upgrades to business class. Earlier this year I flew up front on AC's non-stop between Toronto and Hong Kong. It was about 16 hours each way, and I enjoyed the flight almost as much as my week in HK.
