My Air Canada experiences have always been good...
Salmon in coach, footrests, etc. No PTV's though, but oh well. I was shopping for price. Flights included YVR
When I flew on Air Canada the first time, about a year ago, it was the first time that I didn't take Northwest, Continental, US Air, KLM, or Alaska. I noticed this:
Better food (SALMON!!! AND IT
WAS VERY GOOD!!!)
Good inflight service
So, I was fairly satisfied. However, the Air Canada flight from Maui to Vancouver was checked in by United and catered by them, so the food was crap and check in was bad. They lost one piece of luggage.
No PTV's, I know. But I like to sleep on flights.
Now, recently I flew SQ
, and returned three months later. THOSE PTV's MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE!!! I didn't sleep on the flight, because there were so many programs to watch. All the top movies, Matrix 2, the Jim Carey god flick, an East German movie, lots of stuff. Plus, comedy sitcoms, cartoons, news, video games, music, I could go on and on and on. There was like 200 hours of entertainment on a 10 hour flight. It was superb. Plus, SQ
's international service...it just can't be beat at all.
In december, I will take Jet Blue from SEA
for less than $200 bucks for a round trip ticket and I can't wait to see what their PTV's are about. That's why I chose Jet Blue. Not Northwest (getting a little tired of a four hour flight of twiddling my thumbs and having to pay for drinks), not Continental (I don't like 737s), not US Airways, but Jet Blue. I'm excited.
