Air Canada Economy Class Gets IFE!

Wed Apr 28, 2004 11:06 am

I know that it's not a humungous deal, but I figured I'd mention it anyway. They're aparently introducing PTVs in Hospitality/ Economy class on their new Airbus A340-500s, on the non-stop Toronto/YYZ- Hong Kong/HKG route. Should be quite interesting. I've always wanted to try AC, and now there'll be something to do when it's cloudy out  Big grin.

Here's the article, c/o aircanada.com:

I hope they use this equipment to DEL, lets also hope AC starts a second flight
to India(BOM). I Would switch from LH to AC with the IFE.

Come on you gunners......!!!!!

No, I believe that was last month, this month they are showing "Curious George and the Airline Wrecker" any idea on what's up next month? "Flight Attendant Follies"? lol  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

This unfortunately is not really impressive news. It's only on the A340-500. Too bad they aren't introducing IFE on the rest of the wide-body fleet at least, but they have bigger problems to deal with.
