Air Canada LHR to YOW and back in J (International Business Class)

Diskussion i 'Reserapporter' startad av guitarsingapore, 23 Juni 2015.

  1. This is my virgin experience with Air Canada. As they say, there is always the first time! Privileged to be flying in the International Business Class rather than coach.

    I was on my way to Ottawa. The flight was AC 889, from LHR to YOW. This would be a 7 hour flight across the Atlantic Ocean. Earlier that morning, I had arrived in LHR from Singapore on Singapore Airlines. I had some time to kill at LHR Terminal 2 and I visited the lounges.

    This is my flight review video of the Air Canada LHR-YOW


    I also dropped by the Maple Leaf Lounge at LHR, where I had a Canadian Molson

    Some pictures from the flight.

    I chose Seat 8A for this flight. It is a 1-1-1 formation.

    Passengers were boarding the aircraft. There was only one door opened, so all passengers walked through the Business Class cabin.

    Another look at the cabin from my seat, which was rather private.

    Stretching out my legs.

    As the plane was taxi-ing to the runway, we passed by this SQ Aircraft - 9V-SWG.

    In the air, I used the blanket to cover my legs. The blanket was fairly warm, but not very soft.

    The business class cabin was slightly under half full. I counted 11 pax (out of 24 seats). Service was quick. We started with warm nuts and a drink. I asked for gin and tonic.

    The main meal commenced. The salad and appetizer were served together.

    For my main course, I opted for the lamb, which turned out to be very good. I think lamb works well on a plane.

    I had a cheese plate and ice-cream dessert thereafter. Even though this was a day flight out of LHR, I was feeling tired (having just flown SIN-LHR) and I decided to get some rest. It was easy to change the seat into a bed. Just press one button.

    I woke up about 2 hours before landing and another light meal was served before landing.

    Overall, it was a decent flight. The product is old but functional. I slept quite well. Service was attentive, maybe because there were so few pax in the cabin, the crew could shower more attention on the rest of us.

    Thanks for reading.

    I've been looking at the Air Canada business class for my upcoming award travel, however right now I'm aiming for the Lufthansa First Class instead, but this is my secondary option, should the Lufthansa First not be possible for whatever reason.

    Very nice report indeed, it seems like Air Canada can deliver!
     
  5. yeah, you are right. I shall go change the titles. Thanks for the tip.
     
  6. The trip experience was quite good. Thanks for watching!

    Thanks for another great trip report. I really like your videos. And please, keep the videos of Singapore coming as well. Singapore is one of my favorite cities!
     
  8. Thank you for your nice words. Hope you can help me tell the world about Singapore! Yes, I plan to post more videos on the Singapore thread.
