CANADA 3000 AIRLINES Airbus A340 completes the first non-stop flight between Canada and India

DELHI, India, Oct. 9 /CNW/ - CANADA 3000's inaugural flight between
Canada and India, the first non-stop commercial flight between North America
and India, has been completed in 14 hours, 17 minutes.
The journey of 12,205 km left Toronto on Monday afternoon, October 8th,
and crossed the Atlantic, to Southern Ireland, and then followed the route
through Europe, to the Black Sea, across Turkey and Iran, to the Arabian Gulf
and on to India.
Passengers found the aircraft comfortable and the view spectacular as the
aircraft crossed oceans, continents, seas and mountain ranges to reach its
destination, setting a new standard of comfort and convenience.

I can't picture myself on a 14 hr flight with a charter airline. I hope the seat pitch on A340 is better than their other ones.

I was just wondering. you are talking about the club C3 class and the executive class. do you mean there is three clas on this plane. what is the difference between 2T executive class and club C3?

club C3 class is just a up-graded coach class service,
bigger seats, more leg room, complimentary bar, upgraded meals with choice etc.

Executive class is full business class service that matches or exceeds the level of service offered by any other major airline in that class category.

The 340 is a two class configuration AC. But it has a SABENA J Class, the difference is that the seats have been recovered in that ugly C3 red cloth, but they still have all the toys inside..and Canada Class is also equiped with PTV's. Watewate, C3 is not a charter anymore, They still have charter flights, but it no longer makes up a majority of C3's business. I've been on the 340 and inside it is comparable to AC except with an economy class that has more services then AC. Also the Vancouver portions have been suspended for now.

Glad to hear that. Good luck to this airline. There must be someone left to compete with AC on a serious basis.

Slawko, I stand corrected.
I sure hope C3 can make the flights work with the hefty lease payments. AC needs a little kick in its rear end to straighten itself out anyways.

39inches of pitch in economy is amazing for a scheduled airline, let alone a charter one! Most sched airlines are around 32in, with the exception of AA.

Go Cananada 3000!!
