First Class Interiors. Friday , May 18th , 2018 - 13:07:09 PM
This was the return journey home from our 12-day visit to Argentina which was booked several months in advance redeeming reward points from our Air Canada Aeroplan frequent flyer account. Given the great distance and long journey time from Canada down to Argentina comfort was a priority. So we decided to splurge treating ourselves to Business Class reward tickets. We actually boarded the flight at its origin at Ezeiza Airport in Buenos Aires Argentina for the short two-hour hop across the Andes to Santiago Chile.
After a very comfortable 6 hour sleep (I actually slept for a solid six hours) the cabin lights were dimmed up at 0630 am accompanied by a hot face cloth and orange juice service to gently wake the passengers from their slumber. We were now 90 minutes ahead of our arrival at Toronto. Fifteen minutes later a cold breakfast plate was served consisting of cold meats and a generous mixture of fresh fruits (including grapefruit mango orange and watermelon) complemented by bread preservatives cereals yogurts and other drinks served from the cart. I thought this was the extent of the breakfast but to my pleasant surprise a hot tomato and ham omllette plate with sausage and potatoes followed which was very nice.
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.
