debian. First Class Interiors. May 17th , 2018.
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.
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.
The safety and security of outright ownership is another benefit that transcends cost considerations. As the owner of the aircraft you know the crew and the configuration of the aircraft. In fact some corporate executive insurance policies stipulate travel and security conditions and provisions for key executives that practically dictate travel by private jet.
At 1130 PM (almost two hours after take-off) the meal trays were collected and a wine (port) gourmet cheese fruit and cracker service commenced followed by desert and tea. I opted for the Cherimoya Mousse in a Chocolate Cup which was delightful. Very decadent and was enjoyed by all the surrounding passengers! There were extras of the Chocolate Cup available and passengers were offered a second helping. We politely declined. Desert and tea service continued until midnight and cabin lights were dimmed at 1210 AM for several hours of sleeping.
