Premium Economy- Air Canada

Hello

Can't seem to find any reviews (other than articles introducing the new product months ago) about Air Canada's Premium Economy on the HD. Has anyone flown it, I would appreciate their experience and thoughts about it. What it was like, was it worth it, everything from A-Z.

Thanks in advance

joeintheuk- I did. Couldn't find any, and the majority of the reviews are about the check in at T2 Heathrow, and the economy section about the new HD.

You might want to read through this thread. Note there are many posts there but the actual service wasn't introduced until July, 2013 so skip the ones at the beginning.

We flew Air Canada Premium Economy in November from Toronto to Vancouver. Here is what they promise:

Premium meals served on china.

We received sandwiches wrapped in plastic and eaten off the plastic

Hot towel service

No

Amenity kit

No

Priority check-in

No

Priority boarding

No

Priority baggage

No

It was a huge waste of money.

AC's website note they don't have Premium Economy between YYZ and YVR so that's probably why.

@milly beas How did you buy a product that didn't exist? Was it part of a longer trip and you got the service on other legs?

OP2002. I can assure you that Premium Economy exists on the YYZ - YVR flight -- at least on paper lol. I've already been in touch with Air Canada.

froggyEngland it wasn't part of a longer trip. The aircraft was a 77W and on this type of aircraft Air Canada offers Premium Economy.

AC has now discontinued the PE that was offered on specific N. American flights, see http://www.aircanada.com/en/news/141104.html
