Air Canada Premium Economy Seat Review – A330 Toronto to Montreal (YYZ-YUL)
Air Canada offers a roomy Premium Economy seat in a relaxing cabin on their wide-body Airbus 330-300’s. It’s definitely a (grand) step up from regular coach. The extra space is the best feature!
I recently flew on an A330 between Toronto and Montreal. It was a super short 50 minute flight, so they didn’t offer any inflight amenities beyond coffee and tea. Consequently, this is a short review that’s limited to the seat.
The Premium Economy configuration on Air Canada’s 330 is 2-3-2. The seats are wide and there’s plenty of space between rows.
They also have upgraded features when compared to regular economy.
First of all, there’s a built-in cocktail table. This is a god send if you want to work on your laptop during the flight while you sip Chardonnay!
Each seat also has a foot rest, excluding the bullhead ones. The addition of the footrest makes it a little easier to sleep in a reclining mode. For this reason, I would actually choose any row except the bulkhead on a long-haul flight.
Each seat also comes with a designated power charger – and you don’t have to share one with the person next to you. (In coach there’s often one charger per two passengers.)
I would definitely love to fly Air Canada’s Premium Economy cabin on an inter-continental flight. There’s a lot more space than coach – and the seat approach’s what used to pass as business class in the 1990’s.
Having space on an airplane is always a luxury – and Air Canada’s premium seat has plenty of that - with many extras!
