debian. First Class Interiors. May 18th , 2018.
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.
As we took our seats 2D and 2F in a full Business-Class cabin National Post and Globe and Mail newspapers were handed out along with a Spanish language Chilean paper. A bottle of water was waiting in each seat for each passenger however there was no pre-departure drink service for the Business-Class passengers (orange juice champagne wine etc) as is standard on other airlines. I decided the check the magazine rack for some interesting in-flight reading material only to find Canadian Living Chatellaine Canada Food and Wine and Canadian Fishing; titles that are of little interest to most business travelers. There were no business and news magazines such as The Economist Business Week or Time which one would naturally expect to be provided. Our flight was under the command of Captain Green and he did not provide the passengers with a welcome aboard announcement telling us about flying time planned routing enroute weather or weather at destination.
If you are not sure about going for aircraft charter do a little calculation. Estimate the number of time you will need to travel. Calculate the average cost of the flight to your business. Approach an aircraft charter with the same estimated flight schedule and ask for a cost. Sometime you can even ask if they can top the regular flight costs. Aircraft charter rates are extremely competitive and you will surely get an offer you cannot refuse.
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.
