I told you about my experience flying business class with Air Canada and about the perks of their Air Canada 35K Altitude Elite program. Today I want to tell you about my experience flying business class toDubai, mainly the seating and the food.
Here are my 5 reasons to fly Air Canada Business Class:
- Super large and comfy seats
- Duvet and pillow service
- Complimentary travel kit
- Wide variety of meals
- Snacks during the flight
Okay let me answer the major questions...
How Big Are the Seats on Air Canada’s 787?
We had a lay over in Toronto for 3 hours and then we boarded our next flight to Dubai. The flight was on a Air Canada 787 plane. This was probably the best flight I have ever taken. I was concerned about flying 12 hours after already flying 5 hours from San Francisco but Air Canada took good care of me.
The Air Canada 787 plane has the upgraded pods in business class. Pods are seats that convert into beds, they have a lot of space and are super comfy. Each seat has a pillow, full duvet and socks to keep your feet warm. They even have slippers so you can take off your shoes and really relax. You even get a little kit with hygiene supplies and a sleeping mask. So cute!
These seats are highly coveted because they have been upgraded and renovated from the Air Canada 777. I have flown in business class on the Air Canada 777 before from Toronto to San Francisco and definitely there is the difference between the business class seating on the 787 and the 777.
The 787 business class seats are brand, spanking new. I really like the space and the luxe feeling. Everything looked untouched and I felt like I was moving into a new apartment. I was able to hold my large Celine Phantom with no problem. The seating was excellent and the flat bed was comfy. I sat next to my husband and the only concern is that I could not put the divider down to see him.
On a long flight you really want to be comfortable and be able to get some rest. Business Class seats definitely make me feel at home. I slept the majority of the flight. If business class is not in your budget, consider the premium economy as they have a lot of space as well.

How Is The Food On Air Canada 737?
I also love the snack tray that comes around with chocolate and chips. I even got an extra piece of chocolate ganache cake to enjoy while watching a movie on Air Canada’s fashion channel on the flight. It was sooo good!
Here are pics of the food I enjoyed...
Especially on a long flight.
