First Class Interiors. Friday , May 18th , 2018 - 12:52:45 PM
The Boeing 767-300 for our flight was C-GBZR a former Canadian Airlines aircraft which still retained its dark blue Canadian Airlines interior which in my opinion is not as nice as Air Canada`s Business Class interior. The Business-Class cabin seating was comfortable with ample pitch configured with five rows of 1-2-2. However the seats are not fully-reclining as compared to the Business-Class seats on most other Air Canada 767-300s which recline to near flat.
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.
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.
