Air Canada has taken delivery of its first A220-300, the same aircraft that had to have its left side tail logo repainted because it was shown backwards.
Air Canada has 45 on order and they will replace many of the E-190’s.
The airline is offering a 12 seat business cabin up front.
The business seats will have seat back screens and foot rests. They’re more of a premium economy type used on long haul routes and have USB power chargers.
The economy seats are are a generous 19” wide – that’s bigger than premium economy on most A350’s, which average 18.5”. The layout is the standard 2-3 on the type.
They will also have USB charging and seat back screens.
Plans to operate on domestic routes first are ready, then from Montreal to LaGuardia and later San Jose.
