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.
Several areas are in need of improvement: The lack of pre-boarding Business Class passengers in Santiago the lack of communication from the flight deck the inadequate magazine selection for Business Class passengers the lack of a pre-departure drink service and the lack of priority baggage handling in Toronto for the Business Class passenger`s baggage are small points on their own but detract as a whole from what would have otherwise been a flawless flight. As such the flight is rated an 8.5 out of 10.
Trust me when I say that the airlines really do sympathize with all those folks back there in coach manning the galley oars and pulling like hopped-up little monkeys. After all I was a "non rev" (airline employee flying on a free or very cheap "space available" basis) and I learned how to pack a bag to make sure it doesn`t`t have to be checked at the last minute while boarding the plane for example. I know how rough and spartan it can be back there.
Traveling first class or business class is a luxury few can afford. Most airlines now offer a fully exclusive first class lounge and when you fly you are treated to more space high quality food and attentive service. The benefit you get is that you can check in later at a dedicated desk (avoiding the queues). You can then relax in the comfort of the airline`s lounge where you will find complimentary drinks snacks newspapers and other facilities. There`s no rushing or queuing to board your flight. Your flight seat will usually be a cradle that stretches out to a virtually horizontal position which has legroom up to 60". The in-flight staff is dedicated to your cabin and when you arrive your luggage will be amongst the first off the carousel.
