First Class Interiors. Friday , May 18th , 2018 - 14:47:13 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.
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.
However Emirates` top management believed there were several factors why the Middle Eastern airline was voted the best. Interviewed by CNN management was recorded to have admitted that Emirates is determined to retain the title by maintaining if not surpassing its core values. The top airline authorities further stated that with their wide fleet of aircraft and vast human resources comprising of its crew and staff they will keep working with their best at what they do best-providing the best service available in order to meet if not surpass consumer`s expectations.
