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

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.

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.
