Air Canada’s North America Business Class Makes Work Travel Feel More Like A Vacation

January 2, 2019

By Daphne Dilworth

Being well taken care of when travelling for work is great. Actually, it’s awesome. The good news is that Air Canada takes its premium travel experience very seriously and has thought of pretty much everything.

Here’s some of what you can expect when flying Air Canada’s North America Business Class.

When Airport Passage is Seamless and Stress-Free

Stressed about making your flight because you’re flying at peak travel time? Don’t be. Air Canada offers priority check-in to all Business Class travellers, so you can board at your own pace. Meanwhile, the airline’s team of specially trained premium agents (your very own A-Team) are on hand to deal with any questions or concerns, meaning you’re well taken care of from the second you step into the airport. Air Canada even puts priority tags on your luggage to make sure it’s first out of the carousel when you get to your destination.

Toronto Domestic Maple Leaf Lounge

Exclusive Lounges Outfitted with Everything You Need

You’ll find Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounges across North America, which offer travellers a much-welcomed oasis from the hustle and bustle of the airport. Inside, there’s a variety of seating options for relaxing with a coffee, plus there’s complimentary Wi-Fi, on-the-house snacks and drinks, along with a wide selection of digital newspapers and magazines to browse through while you wait for your flight.

Cloud 9 Seats

Fretting about the kind of seat you’ll be allocated? Don’t. Blurring the lines between airplane and living room, every North America Business Class seat is perfectly comfy and located in a coveted window or aisle position, with more legroom than you’ll know what to do with. Head and footrests adjust to your preference, and you’ll find a dedicated seat-back touch screen TV, along with a blanket, pillow and premium earbuds all at the ready. In-flight Wi-Fi means you can work on your laptop, tablet and phone from the plane without interruption throughout the entire flight.

Mouthwatering Menus

Did you know food actually tastes different at 20,000 feet? For example, palates have a harder time tasting both salty and sweet. Air Canada has tailored its delectable internationally inspired rotating menus to make sure every flavour sings—think melt-in-your mouth beef tenderloin with creamy Porto sauce, red skin potato and kale puree, or salmon fillet with lemon butter sauce, zucchini and broccoli, just some of the dining options available on select North America Business Class routes.

A Sommelier-Curated Wine List

To complement the range of international-inspired food options, Air Canada’s award-winning sommelier, Véronique Rivest has curated a concise list of outstanding wines to pair with your meal and in-flight movie. Depending on when you are traveling, you may see classics like Bordeaux, Rioja and Chianti on the seasonal rotating wine list, but Rivest also wanted to encourage exploration by introducing wines from Austria and Greece. Of course, Canadian wines are also on rotation. What you won’t see on the wine list: wines heavy in alcohol or very rich in tannins, which can leave passengers feeling tired. All of Rivest’s selections are chosen to elevate the in-flight experience, making your flight even more enjoyable and relaxing.

Air Canada prides itself on a commitment to the very best in service, and its 2018 Skytrax Best Airline in North America and Best Business Class in North America awards come as no surprise. Flying Air Canada’s North America Business Class is as seamless and enjoyable as the most unforgettable vacation travel experience, anticipating your needs and delivering on expectations. So next time you’re planning business trip—add a little pleasure. You won’t regret it.
