It's more of a J- than a Y+ this year.
Converting from Supercomfort to Club Class aligns the product more with what they are offering this year compared to years past.
Club will be offered mainly on summer peak services where AC
doesn't have the availability of normal long haul types with it's usual J cabin. Instead they are using some domestically configured 767's and are leasing in other 767's from carriers like EVA that provide a 2x2x2 J cabin rather than the AC
configured 1x2x2 or 2x2x1 longhaul J cabin.
Amenities will include things like lounge access, priority check-in/baggage, superior on board service (better meals etc) but with the drawback of far inferior seating (compared with normal J). This allows AC
to offer some sort of "above Y" cabin but not tarnish the normal long haul J product. It's probably what is needed at this time of year due to the summer vacations and replacement of a lot of the corporate market with the leisure brigade.
Routes that Club will be found on look like 2 of 3 daily YVR
, 1 of 2 daily on YYC
, 1 of 2 daily YVR
Daily flights that Club will be offered seem to be YYZ
. Then there is the annual onslaught for Euro seasonal routes like MAN GLA DUB SNN AMS ZRH
There's a couple of good blurbs about Club on the AC
website under traveller services, then onboard comfort.
