Ok, this may have been discussed before, so if it has please let me have the link to the thread. (I did a quick search and didn't find anything.)
On Friday I was traveling from ORD-YYZ on AC. The aircraft that was supposed to do the run, never came from YYZ, as the inbound was cancelled. So AC used the A320 that arrived from YUL to do this run. (on a side note, the AC gate agent told me they oversold the YYZ flight by 62! How do you oversell an A319 by 62!) When I boarded the 320 (sorry didn't get the reg) I noticed it looked a lot newer that the 320's I was used to. The next thing I noticed was that the Coach Aisle was extremely narrow. I couldn't even get my AirCanada approved roll aboard down the Aisle. It really felt like the Aisle was only 16 or 17 inches wide, but the seats didn't seem any wider than normal. The seats had a definite newer look, similar to UA's A320s, but in a lighter green than the usual AC seats. When I got to my seat I noticed that the seat had a laptop power port, but it wasn't the type that uses the Xtend power cord, but uses a standard US/Canada plug.
My next flight YYZ-YUL was an older A320, and the aisle seemed much wider, and of course had the older seats, and no laptop power. So does anyone here know when these seats came into the fleet, and also why is the aisle so narrow, or seem so? Also is the laptop power in coach going to be installed on all of AC's aircraft?
Thanks for helping me out with these questions.
