Air Canada’s cabin

A founding member of Star Alliance, Air Canada has said it will expand the introduction of its new International Business Class product to include all its Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. 

It will also reconfigure the aircraft to include its new Premium Economy cabin consistent with seating on the new Boeing 787-8 and -9 Dreamliner fleet.

Air Canada will also offer the Premium Economy cabin on its Airbus A330-300 aircraft.  The current Economy and International Business Class cabins of its A330-300 fleet will remain unchanged.

Conversion of Air Canada’s Boeing 777 and Airbus A330 aircraft is planned to begin in the fourth quarter of 2015 and is expected to be completed by the second half of 2016.

The new International Business Class cabin features an adjustable pneumatic cushion system that can be extended into a fully flat sleeping position, 18” touch screen and power outlets.  A 1+2+1 configuration guarantees direct aisle access.

It is the only North American carrier to offer enhanced seating in Premium Economy with generous personal space, wider seats and greater legroom and recline.  Air Canada’s Premium Economy cabin service offers premium meals, complimentary bar service and priority check-in and baggage delivery at the airport.  The Economy cabin features slimline seats.   www.aircanada.com
