Air Canada`s J-cabin Flight Attendants and the In-Charge Gloria were extremely friendly and attentive to the passengers and conducted themselves in a professional yet welcoming manner. They were always available and performed their jobs with a smile and truly made the passengers feel welcome and are deserving of top marks. The quality quantity and presentation of the food and beverage service was excellent and gets top marks. Cabin comfort was good with generous seats pitch (better than the United 767-300 we flew ORD-EZE) and the Flight Attendants told us the non fully-reclining seats will soon be replaced when Air Canada upgrades its fleet with the new Business Class interiors that are being introduced fleet-wide.
Luxury flights are generally deluxe flights that have expensive and high-class accommodation and several other frills. An abundance of space and extra comforts complete with a lavish environment are essential to luxury flights. People will fnd luxury flights have spacious interiors a relaxing environment an attentive and competent crew serving world class cuisine. Specific facilities may differ from airline to airline. Some may offer individual LCD screens with hi-fi headsets for uninterrupted viewing pleasure. Some go one step ahead and take movie requests a day earlier. The crew is trained to anticipate passenger needs and wishes. World class cuisine specially prepared taking into consideration specific dietary needs and preferences of the passengers is served on the planes as well. Care is taken to gather all these details at least 48 hours before departure. A handful of business tickets can generate as much revenue as dozens of economy seats. But as economy class becomes more cost-effective business and first class get much classier and more enticing than ever before.
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.
According to the annual Skytrax World Airline Awards the world`s best airline is... Emirates! Finally the Dubai-based airline reclaimed its number one spot after a decade when it was voted in 2001 for its first world`s best airline of the year award and after which defended the title on the following year. In addition to garnering the overall top honors Emirates had also bagged two other awards-the best Middle Eastern airline award and the best in-flight entertainment award.
