Air Canada's New Lie-flat Sleeper: When In 767?

Thu May 04, 2006 9:19 am

Air Canada is rolling out new lie-flat beds on international routes in Executive First "starting in May 2006".

Anyone know when they'll have equipped their 767's with these new seats? Specifically, I'm interested in the machines that fly the YVR-PEK route...

I read that one is going into the shop this week or next for Cabin makeover. So it will take about 3 or 4 weeks before its ready to roll down the runway. I think the answer you are looking for is in the thread RE: Air Canada Begins Interior Makeovers (by Accargo Apr 26 2006 in Civil Aviation)#ID2740683

Apparently the first route to experience the new seating will be YYZ-ZRH-DEL-ZRH-YYZ on AC878/879.

I just read the achorizons.ca and they mention the first 767-300ER will get the lie flat suite in service in June of this year. Here's the link http://www.achorizons.ca/en/issues/2006/NewHorizons.pdf
