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."

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?

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.

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!

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.

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?
