Flight Review: Air Canada A321 Business Class from Los Angeles to Vancouver

Boarding was scheduled at 6:20 but started at past 6:30, which was about the time I reached the gate. There was not a good view of the plane from the gate, but this plane had the new Air Canada livery which I thought was a step back. AC551 Los Angeles LAX - Vancouver YVR STD-STA: [...]
