    How long of a flight is it from Toronto, Ontario (since FBorFW takes place in a Toronto fictional suburb) to Calgary, Alberta? Any Canadian know the answer for this here non-Canadian?

    It looks to be a little over 3,000 miles.

    I believe it’s about 5 hours air time but the three hours difference in time makes it only 2 numerically.

    Air Canada lists 3:55, gate to gate. That would make actual air time roughly 3:23.

    And the time difference between Toronto and Calgary is only 2 hours. The difference between Toronto and Vancouver is 3 hours.

    Good thing this strip is not in the modern times the check in process can take 3 hours .
    Also the time would depend on the aircraft being taken not all have the same cursing speed and that can make a major difference in time. Rarely do planes take a straight flight path which can also impact time.

    An empty seat ??? I have not seen one in a long time. They always pack the plane full nowaday.

    If this was today, Mike would be happy to channel-surf on the seatback TV or play with his smartphone or tablet. But he should count his blessings. You haven’t experienced cabin fever until you’ve taken a 15 hour nonstop flight. And back.

    Things were so different then even though just the previous decade there had been a series of hijackings mostly of US flights. Now the slightest hint and you have hours of just being poked and prodded and endless lines. Ah the good old days of air plane flight.

    For the film “Daybreakers” the directors had to take 26 hour flights each way between New Zealand and N. Y. city at one point concerning budget negotiations.

    @alcluin

    Um, what is the average cursing speed of most aircraft?

    AND a little sprinkle will delay or cancel the flight too (now that we have more instruments so pilots don’t NEED visuals as they did. I can remember the days when I often flew for my work when I could hope for one or two empty seats in my row and there were practically no restrictions over carry ons. I even brought back a 30’ tall concrete statue from Chihuahua MX (got a spare seat on Mexicana and went into the first class elevator on American.
