First Class Interiors. Wednesday , May 16th , 2018 - 12:55:47 PM
The Boeing 767-300 for our flight was C-GBZR a former Canadian Airlines aircraft which still retained its dark blue Canadian Airlines interior which in my opinion is not as nice as Air Canada`s Business Class interior. The Business-Class cabin seating was comfortable with ample pitch configured with five rows of 1-2-2. However the seats are not fully-reclining as compared to the Business-Class seats on most other Air Canada 767-300s which recline to near flat.
In the race among most airlines to pack in more paying customers into a fixed and very limited aircraft cabin the idea of what constitutes "foot space" or any "space" at all for that matter is a fungible and never easily understood concept on the part of an airline passenger. Believe me when I say that - as a former airline manager - that the airlines would LOVE to give everybody in every section of the plane their own personal "space" but that`s not going to happen in this lifetime from what I can tell.
And that`s just economy. In Diamond class travellers are treated to the "revolutionary" Diamond Seat which rotates 180 degrees contains a 23` personal LCD video screen has a six-way movement headrest with built-in massage facility and is able to convert into luxurious 6 foot 1 inch flat bed. The zone even has a coatroom and mini-bar. Seats in the Pearl zone also convert into flat beds or "business-beds" as they are called.
