I've been wanting to visit California for a while now. I have a large selection of airlines available and I'd definitely go towards Star Alliance airlines since I have KrisFlyer membership and I want more miles. =D
Checking on the AC website, they seem to offer great prices on the HKG-LAX leg with a transit in Canada. Prices were just around 8000 HKD round trip, which I found it very good. Checking on seatguru, it states that they have 32 inches of seat pitch for their long haul planes, I wonder if it'll be comfortable for a tall person like me? I am 187cm tall. What are the seats like? Soft/hard?
Also, the I'd like to find out how the IFE is like on Air Canada. It seems fine to me and I guess it is almost certain that all their aircrafts has AVOD? How is the food like? I certainly do not like to have yucky food on an aircraft..
Last but not least, I noticed that they have an option of letting you subtract $120 from your airfare if you choose not to accumulate aeroplan miles. Does that apply to other Star Alliance's airlines membership too? It'd be great if I can subtract the $120 from my airfare and get my KrisFlyer miles, though I don't think I'll be able to get the best of both worlds!
Any replies are appreciated. Thanks!
