Flying High the lowdown on what airlines are offering business travellers
15 August 2009
The Toronto Star

Airlines are frantically upgrading their business class service in an effort to gain corporate travel dollars. Here's a sampling of what is currently available on international business class flights from Toronto's Pearson International Airport.

AIR CANADA

YOUR SPACE: Snooze control. On flights to London, Paris, Frankfurt, Asia and Australia, the seat reclines to a flat position (191 centimetres), complete with lumbar support, comfortable pillow and duvet. An oversized tray table ensures adequate space to work or enjoy your meal. The ambient lighting can apparently help with jet lag. Enjoy the personal 30-centimetre touch-screen TV, with noise-cancelling headphones. The entire fleet will eventually be fitted with this Executive First Service.

MEAL SERVICE: Enjoy fine dining made with fresh ingredients. Sip on champagne and wines from Canada and across the globe, specially selected by world-renowned wine expert Ken Chase.

ENTERTAINMENT: The flight's not long enough to enjoy the hundreds of hours of movies, television programming and audio. Remain in control as you use the touch-screen to pause or rewind your favourite show.

BONUS: The new 777 aircraft (on flights above) offers a self-serve stand-up bar. The Maple Leaf Lounge, located in Pearson Airport and at key international airports, offers style, comfort, technology and complimentary refreshments.

Toronto to London Heathrow: $4,036 (includes taxes of $167), fully refundable.

EMIRATES

YOUR SPACE: Heading to Dubai? Slide the seat down to the fully reclined (200 centimetres) position to arrive rested on the new aircraft - non-stop from Pearson. A privacy divider ensures that you are uninterrupted. Comfort is maximized with seat massage, an extra-large table and personal storage space. If you need to catch up on work, laptop charging, SMS, phone and email are ready and waiting at your seat.

MEAL SERVICE: Sky high dining with class - a five-course meal served on bone china, with fine linen and flowers setting the ambience for a relaxing meal. A full range of champagnes, wines and cocktails are offered (not on flights to Saudi Arabia).

ENTERTAINMENT: Choose from more than 1,000 channels featuring movies, television shows, music and games, shown on your 43-centimetre digital widescreen.

BONUS: No journey actually starts at the airport. Emirates complimentary chauffeur service (available in Toronto) picks you up and drops you off at your home, office, or hotel.

Toronto to Dubai: $6,423 (includes taxes of $43), cancellations permitted.

CATHAY PACIFIC

YOUR SPACE: Experience the new 180-degree recliner on long-haul flights (Pearson to Hong Kong). Adjust the seat, foot rest and bed to suit your comfort needs. Settle yourself in with the massaging feature and adjustable lumbar support.

MEAL SERVICE: In addition to the a la carte meals, if you're peckish during your long-haul flight, your attendant will prepare a freshly made snack for you. Eggs on toast, perhaps? Pasta? Just ask.

ENTERTAINMENT: Choose from a huge selection of movies, programs, newspapers, albums and radio channels on your On Demand system. An excellent selection of alternative language soundtracks is available for movies and television shows.

BONUS: At Hong Kong airport, there's personal living space, complete with computer. You can even freshen up in a shower suite.

Toronto to Hong Kong: $5,192 (includes taxes of $89), cancellable.

BRITISH AIRWAYS

YOUR SPACE: Seats recline to a 201-centimetre ergonomic "Z", with a touch button privacy screen. The memory foam headrest, soft mattress and quilt enhance your comfort.

MEAL SERVICE: Club World's menu combines fine local and international produce, with meals to satisfy all from health-conscious diners to ravenous appetites. Choose from a large selection of wines. With Club Kitchen, satisfy between-meal cravings with anything from sandwiches to fair-trade chocolate.

ENTERTAINMENT: With Audio Visual On Demand, choose when to start and stop more than 200 entertainment options, including more than 50 music CDs and audio books. View selections on a 26-centimetre personal flat-screen, with noise-cancelling headphones.

BONUS: Sleep! On selected overnight flights (Toronto to London Heathrow), take advantage of the Club World Sleeper Service. Enjoy a meal in the lounge before boarding, and be greeted onboard with a nightcap. You will remain uninterrupted until you are served breakfast just prior to landing.

Toronto to London Heathrow: $3,903 (includes taxes of $218), cancellations permitted.

Somewhat recent news about the Blue 22 connection to Pearson - also known as the Georgetown South Service Expansion / Union-Pearson Rail Link. Presently, it seems to have passed another EA hurdle and seems to be well on its way to becoming more of a reality than prior announcements.

Union Pearson Rail Link

It seems however, that there are still some serious and contentious issues with residents of the areas that might be affected by construction and also due to the routing of the train. Personally, I am getting a little tired of how long this process is taking, not to mention the lack of motivation, political will, nimbyism and the complete lack of foresight by our politicians, oh and money. I think where this train has some problems is in how many people it will ultimately attract, but more importantly how many people it will service.

Presently, it seems as though this train will be of the express-type, which is not a good idea, especially when there is a lack of public transit servicing the areas it passes through already. We do not need an express train as of yet, but rather a train which services the airport on its way to other destinations and vice-versa.

According to the GTAA, they have set aside $25 million to build a station within airport facility - this is a good start and needs to be strongly considered. Ultimately, what would be best is for an underground station which has both regional and local trains running through it, connecting more than just a few hundred passengers with the city on a daily basis.

Nice! To catch A380EK with a few AC/W77. Also It would be nice to spot Olympic just in case if they vanish in the future. I hope not.

KE Cargo adding additional frequency to YYZ

from today's press release....

Korean Air Cargo adding service at Toronto Pearson

TORONTO, Aug. 27 /CNW/ - The Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) is
pleased to announce that Korean Air Cargo, one the largest cargo airlines in
the world, will be increasing its freighter service at Toronto Pearson.
Beginning in early September, the airline will be adding a third weekly
B747-400F flight, bringing their frequency up to a Wednesday, Friday, Saturday
service. The B747-400 aircraft is one of the most fuel efficient and quietest
in its class.
"We are very happy to see this increase in service from Korean Air
Cargo," said Lloyd McCoomb, President and CEO of the GTAA. "This increased
cargo offering is very good for the whole community we serve. It means that
companies moving cargo to and from the Asian market now have more options and
greater flexibility. The new freighter service also consolidates our role
within the Asia-Pacific Corridor."
Canada's new open skies agreement with South Korea and the GTAA's reduced
landing fees for all-cargo aircraft that were announced in June of last year
facilitated the expansion of Korean Air's cargo schedule in Toronto.
Toronto Pearson is the leading air cargo gateway in Canada, offering
world class facilities and infrastructure for all-cargo operators. All five
runways are equipped to handle heavyweight aircraft and there are more than
1.2 million square feet of cargo handling facilities and 2.5 million square
feet of dedicated apron space for cargo operations.
Toronto Pearson is the only Canadian airport served with scheduled
all-cargo services to Asia, Latin America, Europe, and the United States.
Additionally, world-leading freight forwarders have their Canadian
headquarters in Toronto and the bulk of their consolidations in Canada take
place near the airport.

The GTAA is the operator of Toronto Pearson International Airport, the
largest airport in Canada and one of the largest airports in North America in
terms of passenger and air cargo traffic.

There is not enough demand to have dedicated freighters operations.
Each airline does offer cargo capacity in the belly of the A380 and B77W respectively.

Air Canada returning to ATH and introducing BCN next year.

This appears to be happening sooner than I thought. I guess AC wanted to step into OA's shoes after they stop service before anybody else does. Looks like 3x weekly from YYZ and YUL on alternating days (6x weekly total). I hope this works out for AC, as well as the BRU route announced last week.

From the Air Canada website:

Air Canada to launch non-stop service to Athens and Barcelona from Montréal and Toronto

MONTREAL, Aug. 28 /CNW Telbec/ - Air Canada today announced that it will
introduce Montréal-Athens and Montréal-Barcelona as well as Toronto-Athens and
Toronto-Barcelona non-stop seasonal services between June 3 and October 18,
2010 in time for planning vacations next summer.
"Air Canada's new non-stop summer services to Athens and Barcelona from
both Montréal and Toronto will offer customers even more convenient options
for planning vacations and visiting friends and relatives on both sides of the
Atlantic," said Ben Smith, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial
Officer. "Both Barcelona and Athens are important ports of call for cruise
lines, and also provide convenient connections for flights to other popular
destinations throughout Greece and Spain. With these additions to our 2010
summer schedule, we are continuing to strategically deploy capacity to meet
seasonal demand."
Air Canada flights will be operated using 244-seat Boeing 767-300ER
aircraft providing best-value all-economy service for leisure travellers, with
the option of enhanced seating comfort and legroom in the forward cabin.

Athens service

Air Canada's non-stop flights to Athens will be timed to offer travellers
convenient connections to the carrier's extensive North America network via
its Montréal and Toronto hubs to and from: Ottawa, Québec City, Halifax,
Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston and
New York. In Athens, connecting flights will be available with its future Star
Alliance partner Aegean Airlines to/from Thessaloniki and several Greek
Islands including Mykonos, Heraklion and Rhodes.
Air Canada Vacations holiday packages will be available directly from Air
Canada Vacations at aircanadavacations.com or by contacting travel agents in
Canada.
Flights will be operated six days a week, subject to government approval:
three times a week from Montréal and three times a week from Toronto.

yes....lots of strange goings-on at AC these days.....they are going after low-yield leisure routes that are almost guaranteed to fail....while high potential business routes like YYZ-SEL are uncovered...

and with the olympics coming to YVR, I would have thought that any increases would be there - instead we get huge increases at YUL.......bizarre.....

could it be, after several years of enlightened management (with American CEOs), once again, the inmates are running the asylum?

^ I told you I knew it. It's all over for OA. Let it go like this for 1-2 years. Guess what when AC gets their 787, it will be monopoly game as usual.

Here is a pic how their 763 looks on inside. One of the best 763 out there. OA has no chance here.

Can anyone care to tell me why AC does not offer simply just 'First Class' instead of 'Executive First class'? Anyone know the difference between the two?

Don't think AC has first class anymore. They just call Business Class "Executive First". Quite misleading!

I was just reading on airliners forum that AC will get some second hand 763 for ATH/BCN. They will not come with those flat bed seats as I posted. I guess this is due to Leisure market. That means it will be the same product as Air Transat offer. I don't think AC will do any good here. A330 TS is more desireable plane. The only downside is that AC may have the adventage of having 2+3+2 seating , whereas TS got 3+3+3, that's if I am not mistaken. My prediction is that Canada and Greece will not have dirrect links in the near future, but summer seasons charters.

I thought they were getting rid of their 767s, even the retrofitted ones. Didn't realize they want more.
