I remember I've heard that AC has modified a bit its J class on A321, does anyone know what's are the differences? Here's a picture if anyone's interested!  Smile

Looks nice and airy. Did you get that from their web site?

Any idea what the seat pitch is in the new AC J class? From the angle in the picture, it looks huge.

Cabin and seat pitch look great, but those seats just look so boring--so flat (2-dimentional).

Nice!
I was thrilled to see 2 of the 321's at YYZ last week, and I THINK I spooted one at a gate at YUL an hour ago, but I couldn't quite tell in the dark.



Next flight.... who knows.

Quoted from the website:

"The minute employees and customers step into the new A321 they will notice a change. The interior has an upscale and stylish look and the dominant colour is a refreshing green. New green carpets match the upholstery and the vertical surfaces create a relaxing neutral background. The overall effect is a calm and serene atmosphere with a modern twist."

Beautiful aircraft!

I have to say that that is a really styly cabin. How many seats? 24?

I flew C-GITU when it was a week old, Dec 14, in coach, and although the plane had the feel, and smell, of a brand new airplane, I wasnt as impressed as I thought I would be.

The seats, excellet ergonomics, hard as rocks though, and decent legroom. The colours caught me by surprise.

TheF/A's couldnt get the sound to work, regulate the volume or anything. Whatever was on the T.V, was on all 12 Channels.

The power supply for the laptops only worked 2 hours into our flight, and all the flite phones were dead.

I still loved the ride.

Regarding seat pitch, generally windows are spaced so that two windows == 38", which is normal domestic first class pitch (non-sleeper, etc.). To get an estimate I will often count windows vs. # of seat rows. There are six rows up here, and if you look at

there are twelve windows so in spite of the appearance of extra room, the pitch is probably close to 38". Perhaps they spread things out a bit more to get 40" :there is some space between the last window and the second door which they might have spread out into. (US Air has a closet there, doesn't look like AC does.).

Anyway it is nice to see this pic. The seats are stylish and the green is unique.

BTW, I believe the 767 and 777 have windows spaced so that two of them == 40" or more. Does anyone know the exact figure for those aircraft?

Yes ILS, I was referring to the interior pic in Wolfy's link. It looked like 6 rows in F (or Executive). I assume that economy is a more standard 31"-32" but would await confirmation.

Lol. Then the 'vertical surfaces' would not create a 'relaxing neutral background'. Not to sound cyncial, but the 'relaxing neutral background' is probably cheaper, so the ones relaxing are the accountants. It takes a marketeer to put a spin on it that sounds positive, but you have to pay them, thereby negating the savings. But seriously, I like this design.

Here's wishing everyone the most serene vertical surfaces during this recession.  Big grin

Hmmmm, I dunno. While the design of the new J Class seats are nice, I'm not crazy about the green armrests or the rather bland fabric design on the seats. Is it just me, or could Air Canada stand to introduce a little more colour in their interiors? And that Maple Leaf logo on the dividing bulkhead wall is perhaps a bit too bland.
Hey Robbie Milton! The colour green is nice, but LIVEN up the cabin a bit!

JUST my opinion!

Canadi>nBoy, be careful what you ask for. Remember the AC 747s, with the four coach cabins done respectively in blue, green, yellow and orange-brown? The idea was to represent the four seasons, but some of those colours, especially the green ..... Well at least it was an interesting concept, and being a CP guy I suppose I'm prejudiced.

CF-CPI, LOL, indeed I do recall the "4 Seasons" interior of the first AC747's. That Brown (the season of Mud?? LOL) cabin......ohh..God.

Perhaps you're right....could be worse!

Like you, I am rather CAI biased as well, Hmmmm, but then again, CP refitted some of their A/C with that boring Grey with flecks of Gold seating. I loved the
Royal Blue myself.

I flew on an AC 321 a few weeks ago and was rather impressed with the coach seats. They were admittedly a bit hard, but the headrests that mold to your head made a big difference.
One thing I noticed was that before we departed, it looked as though the FA armed one of the doors by taking a key out of one slot and placing it into another. Anyone know what that's all about?

Another question, are these Executive First seats or Executive Class? Also, isn't Air Canada's standard seat pitch in economy 33"? I seem to remember reading that somewhere, can someone confirm this?
