And that`s just economy. In Diamond class travellers are treated to the "revolutionary" Diamond Seat which rotates 180 degrees contains a 23` personal LCD video screen has a six-way movement headrest with built-in massage facility and is able to convert into luxurious 6 foot 1 inch flat bed. The zone even has a coatroom and mini-bar. Seats in the Pearl zone also convert into flat beds or "business-beds" as they are called.
The Business Class cabin was two thirds empty on the two hour Buenos Aires - Santiago sector and we landed an hour of so before sun down in clear and warm conditions with the Captain informing us it was still 29 degrees C. All passengers were deplaned at Santiago during the one hour station stop so that the aircraft could be groomed for the long-haul flight back to Toronto. Interestingly enough Air Canada has traffic rights between Buenos Aires and Santiago so some passengers left us but a larger number along with the new crew were waiting to join the flight at gate 15 in the new Santiago Airport terminal. Large glass windows are a prominent feature of the new airport which is great for aircraft spotters but they somehow forgot to incorporate an adequate air-conditioning system. It was stifling hot as we waited to board the flight although the Servisair-GlobeGround contract agents boarded the plane efficiently there was no advance boarding for Business-Class passengers as normal in Canada.
Only specific materials can be used even for private aircraft interiors. For example all materials are required to have an 8110-3 which means they need to pass FAA burn requirements. 2-D and 3-D modeling software allows the customer to preview colors textures patterns and materials. The final stage of this software is a photorealistic 3-D rendering showing the customer a true colour visualization of how the new interior environment will look and feel. This rendering along with the colour board of materials is a complete package for jet interior design.
