First Class Interiors. Wednesday , May 16th , 2018 - 16:57:06 PM
Air Canada provides its Business Class passengers with very comfortable warm and somewhat heavy grade comforters instead of thinner grade blankets provided on other airlines. This is a very nice unique touch that ads to increased comfort while sleeping when the cabin can get quite cool on long-haul flights. That said the cabin was kept at a perfect temperature for the entire flight (not too hot and not too cool). Personal DVD players and movies were available for Business Class passengers` use during the flight the in-flight pantry was fully stocked with sandwiches snacks and drinks for between meal cravings and passengers were invited to help themselves as needed.
At 0730 AM some 10 hours after departure we finally heard from the flight-deck when the First Officer informed us that we had commenced our decent the current temperature was 2 degrees C at Toronto and we would be landing in 35 minutes (at 605 AM local time) and parking at gate 155 at Toronto`s new Terminal 1. I grabbed my in-flight kit and dashed to the lav to quickly freshen up and the Flight Attendants were now collecting all service items preparing the cabin for landing. We touched down at 0610 AM and arrived at gate 155 at 0622 AM some 22 minutes after the flight`s 0600 AM scheduled arrival time. As we were the first passengers off the aircraft we were quickly processed through customs and immigration but to our dismay our baggage was not priority processed and we waited about 20 minutes for it to arrive on the belt.
The connotations associated with a private jet absolutely broadcast that one has arrived. The world changes for those who travel by private jet- one does not have to arrive two hours early to be screened by security or if late have to sprint through the airport before the cabin door closes. With a private jet everything is based around the jet traveler the plane does not takeoff until they arrive but does takeoff the moment they get seated on board. One may feel free to take shoes off smoke have pets seated next to them uncaged and walk on board with a drink in hand. The locations one may travel to in the continental US go up by a factor of ten five thousand airports for the private jet traveler as opposed to just five hundred for the commercial air traveler.
