First Class Interiors. Thursday , May 17th , 2018 - 03:25:23 AM
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.
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.
This was the return journey home from our 12-day visit to Argentina which was booked several months in advance redeeming reward points from our Air Canada Aeroplan frequent flyer account. Given the great distance and long journey time from Canada down to Argentina comfort was a priority. So we decided to splurge treating ourselves to Business Class reward tickets. We actually boarded the flight at its origin at Ezeiza Airport in Buenos Aires Argentina for the short two-hour hop across the Andes to Santiago Chile.
