wessley hurt. First Class Interiors. June 04th , 2018.
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.
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.
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.
This is where a little of research comes in handy. By knowing how aircraft charter rates are calculated i.e. hours of use mileage etc you might be able to shave off a few dollars. It`s also very important to research the aircraft charter before you hire - you should be looking at an impeccable track record and a responsible attitude from the staff.
