As an observation, for a flight that short, and subsequently I assume quite light, you could probably cruise at about FL360-380. The winds aloft might have a vote.

Amazing, but for this flight it is WestJet that operate. Air Canada operate with a330 to YUL. But Amazing !!!

Yeah, I agree. The headwinds were a bit strong, and the jet stream through ireland was harder to get through at a harder altitude.

Out of interest what was your cruise speed? Seems like a very long flight time to YHZ but I appreciate it must have been very strong head winds

It was at FL280 basically the entire time. Could it have been faster at flight level 360 or 380?

Your speed over the ground will be faster the higher you go. Can you remember how fast you were going! (Mach)

Thank you!

Yeah, maybe it could be a good infinite flight loading screen!
