Boeing 777-300 ('77W')

This is the airplane that carried us over the top of the world, from Toronto to Hong Kong via a Polar Route. A big airplane with big engines.

We were supposed to be travelling on a brand new 777-200 ('77L', shorter fuselage, longer range), but Air Canada switched to the 777-300 ('77W') after we had already selected our seats.

The result of all this is that we had chosen seats behind the wing on the 777-200, but ended up sitting above the huge wing on the 777-300.

We had an excellent view of about an acre of aluminum.
