First Class Interiors. Friday , May 18th , 2018 - 15:00:29 PM
When Brazilian company Embraer known for its innovative design and BMW which is synonymous with motoring luxury teamed up first-class flyers new they were in for a treat. Embraer provided the jets and BMW`s DesignworksUSA studio provided the interiors which have BMW style stamped all over them. The lines are straight and clean and there is a great deal of black and white it has been described as Teutonic and tech-heavy. There is a full galley as well as a full bathroom and the seats convert into flat beds.
At 1130 PM (almost two hours after take-off) the meal trays were collected and a wine (port) gourmet cheese fruit and cracker service commenced followed by desert and tea. I opted for the Cherimoya Mousse in a Chocolate Cup which was delightful. Very decadent and was enjoyed by all the surrounding passengers! There were extras of the Chocolate Cup available and passengers were offered a second helping. We politely declined. Desert and tea service continued until midnight and cabin lights were dimmed at 1210 AM for several hours of sleeping.
Air Canada provides its Business Class passengers with very comfortable warm and somewhat heavy grade comforters instead of thinner grade blankets provided on other airlines. This is a very nice unique touch that ads to increased comfort while sleeping when the cabin can get quite cool on long-haul flights. That said the cabin was kept at a perfect temperature for the entire flight (not too hot and not too cool). Personal DVD players and movies were available for Business Class passengers` use during the flight the in-flight pantry was fully stocked with sandwiches snacks and drinks for between meal cravings and passengers were invited to help themselves as needed.
