• *Airplanes 101* A330-200 - classic airbus side panelling and window frames. Identical or very similar to all other Airbus aircraft.
  • *Airplanes 101* Classic Airbus luggage bins and ceiling panels. All bins jut out outward with uplifting doors. In the A330 you see a slightly inward curvature towards the back where this pic was taken.. visible kink in the luggale line here at the back of the plane.
  • *Airplanes 101* - A330-200: Seating & legroom/comfort levels are a choice of the airline but the basic A330 design is a twin aisle 8 abrest (2-4-2) in economy.
  • *Airplanes 101* A330-200 - Some airlines like Swiss Air Lines install these "PTV's" Entertainment units on the seat backs. It's not an aircraft feature in itself although the A330 is equiped to handle such things if the airline wants them installed.

    CX have thousands of kinds of seats. This one is currently use in Region flights, then there is old long haul seats then there is an other brand new seat for long haul that just came out last year. All of them has PTV. You should try. The only bad think about CX is sometimes their services in economy class they are terrible, and if you are a tall person, Economy class might not fit you, other than those problems, CX is over all good choice to fly with!

    Flightaware - Their economy can't be any worse than Air Canada's... mind you AC's seat width and legroom is ok but their flight attendants need refresher courses in being professional with the passengers. I'd love to try CX but Hong Kong is sooooo far away from here it's doubtful I ever will. I can't imagine them ever flying to YUL in my lifetime if ever... but I'll never say never, who knows. Fingers crossed! :-)

    Man, I havn't fly with AC along time ago... My dad always travel from HKG to YYZ, and he said "both of them is worst", and I guess, you and him are right! I am gonna try this summer, flying to Orlando... and see. What airlne do u think it is the best airline to fly with?
    CX have flights flying from YVR to JFK, you can try, the flights are now operating with B744, but soon, it will become B77W's job, and it would be a great "adventure" for you!

    Flightaware - YUL-JFK is a code share for CX, probably on American Eagle. It's and ERJ-135 or -145 depending on the time of day. I think 95% of their seats are code shared LOL... there must be every Oneworld member on it.. For Orlando I don't know what to suggest. US carriers are like Air Canada, stripped to the bone and charging separately for everything except for the air we breath on their aircraft. Continental has always impressed me the most. None have been outright terrible though. However Swiss and Lufthansa both were far superior on their European flights so don't expect that level of service. I'd say spin a bottle and pick whoever (unless CO offers a connection that works for you) because it really won't make that much of a difference in the end. Maybe you can fly into Toronto where Westjet might have an Orlando connection available...they don't have the big fancy aircraft Air Canada has but their 737s are quite comfortable and their staff way more friendly and accommodating... the staff Air Canada only wishes they could have.

    Sorry Caribb, I type in the wrong think, I mean YVR... (I always mix them) CX have YVR (Vancouver) to JFK.. LoL my bad, I was just.. stupid!

  6. caribb 103 months ago | reply

    No problem, Canada's airport codes are so out of whack with the rest of the world (all starting with "Y"). it's easy to mix them up.. Does CX offer a JFK-YVR-JFK North American service? If they do Iwould be interested in trying it. The Hong Kong leg is just out of my reach at the moment sadly (like most people).

  7. Flightaware [deleted] 103 months ago | reply

    Yes they do, last mid July, they offered a trip from JFK to YVR and back for $549 something or something like that....I also have seen people flying like that The plane arrival from HKG, drop some passengers off, and add new passengers, some of the passengers who is continue to JFK will seat there and wait for re-check in call, and the flight continues in one and a half hour or so.

  8. caribb 103 months ago | reply

    Humm interesting... might be worth looking into. Not sure if adding a YUL-JFK leg would make it financially worth while though. I'm willing to try anything however...

  9. Flightaware [deleted] 103 months ago | reply

    I think they are having fun with it. First of all, lots of peope are now flying to JFK from HKG. Two non-stop flight couldn't help it, another flight would be a good thing to do. Second of all, Oasis Hong Kong is down, Vancouver's traveller are now looking at CX or AC. So Another additional flight is good think. Plus, JFK and YVR is a good route for them, and for the travellers... and Winter Olypmic is coming out... Lets see how will they do when olypmic comes....

  10. caribb 103 months ago | reply

    Flightaware - We'll see. I know someone at Air Canada that has said in the past YVR-HKG isn't as profitable as you'd think. Lots of people but lots of discounted air fares. I don't know if CX makes more profit on it or if most seats on the run are to JFK but a third flight would be something if it could be done.

    El Negro Vikingo Cool, I'm sure you'll enjoy their service. I've had great experiences on Swiss each time I've flown them. Have a great trip and enjoy NYC!

    Have to agree with you about the AC 767s, they are not nice at all!!

  20. caribb 80 months ago | reply

    one42chrisp They're an older design than the A330s. I find the interiors look ancient now. Some carriers have updated them to 777 interiors though which would help. Despite it all they are fundamentally excellent aircraft popular everywhere still to this day..
