Zoom Has Refurbished Its Aircraft

Wed Nov 16, 2005 3:01 pm

Hey,

I just got home from my flight from POS with Z4 on C-GZUM City of Ottawa and they have just finished refurbishing this aircraft with new washrooms and fully leather seats. It looks very classy and nice. On my way down to POS from YYZ on the 1st of NOV, the seats were falling apart and the material was ripping off. I was thinking, they needed to do some refurbishing. To my surprise boarding the return flight, the entire economy class is leather now, and the seats are comfy. They have the same color as air transat's leather seats in economy. They have a really good service as well.

Best Regards,

It is a 2-3-2 configuration with 268 seats. There are 206 Economy Class seats, and 62 Premium Economy Class seats.

from the Zoom website. I got to see a couple of shots of the new interior on ZUM. Very nice by any standards!

Yeah this is really great. I enjoyed the flight on the way back much better with the leather seating. Zoom is really stepping up their service. Cessnapimp, Where on the website are the pictures of the new interior?

One question,

What type of engines does C-GZUM have? It sounded like GE's but I was not sure.
