So, instead of 2 hours at the airport, it was more like 6.5 hours. To cap it off, my bag unexpectantly ended up on a later flight. Credit to Air Canada though, I got to Vancouver, my bag caught up with me, my pre-paid seat was refunded [without me asking for it] and they provided a discount voucher [which unfortunately I will not be able to use]. Can't imagine that airlines operating within NZ would do quite so well...
The benefit of this disruption was some extra time for photos. This will be the first of four posts with some of the photos I took.
Westjet is one of only two major players in the nationwide Canadian domestic market [happy to be corrected there!]. They fly mainly Boeing B737's and Bombardier DHC8 turboprops, some of which I photographed. They also have some B767's in operation [none seen] and some B787's on order. From smallest to biggest, here they are.
