wow!!! sounds good, great to see airlines expanding into North America, will be a great site to see, when I visit Canada in the future!

They should just wait until they get the A350.

Why? DL does SEA-HKG without any issues.

Because the A330’s kind of an ugly duckling with those upward slant windows at the rear.

Funny, I’ve sat next to those windows and found them to be perfectly sufficient at the job of being translucent.

Sufficient isn’t perfection.

Disappoint.

I have to agree it’s pretty annoying that they are not in line with the other windows however I would rather be in that plane then a B787 or B777

I rest my case XD
