Air Canada to Offer All-Premium Flights

Fri May 22, 2020 12:49 am

Looks like AC is going to deploy its Jetz (sports charters) on select Rapidair (YYZ-YUL/YOW) flights. The A319s offer 58J seats.

Smart idea given load restrictions. Might as well give the few customers onboard a comfy ride at no added cost to the company.

The aircraft will be flown in an existing all J configuration, but sold at Premium Economy fares.

It’s a curious experiment, as two airlines tried this in the past. Both CPAir Company Jet, (then CPAir Attaché) and Astoria Airlines tried an all premium cabin on the YYZ-YUL route. Both were unsuccessful.
Just because I stopped arguing, doesn't mean I think you are right. It just means I gave up!

True, however they tried it in normal times, contrary to now and AC already has the fleet. Time will tell whether it worked or not.

Seems low risk to try since the planes aren't doing much of anything right now. Probably mostly business travel.

I think it’s a great idea to use them in this time of social distancing and increase some revenue...

Flew on one a few years ago LGA-YYZ. Not a bad way to fly. I’d pay some extra money for that kind of ride.
Look at sweatpants guy. This is a 90 million dollar aircraft, not a Tallahassee strip club

Agreed and now that the E90s are gone, it’s a way of having extra cargo space vs an E75...and with only slightly more seats than a CRJ!
