LOUNGE:

Business Traveler (USA) - - TRIED & TESTED -

Since I only held an econ­omy class ticket, I could not ac­cess the Maple Leaf Lounge, lo­cated on level 3 at Node F. How­ever as a Pri­or­ity Pass mem­ber I could use the Plaza Pre­mium lounge, also lo­cated in Ter­mi­nal 1. The fa­cil­ity was mod­estly sized with plenty of seat­ing avail­able, with a gen­er­ous F&B se­lec­tion.

As I ap­proached the ticket counter I was promptly handed a new board­ing pass for busi­ness class. I switched lines, was quickly pro­cessed and boarded the plane at 0935.

Air Canada op­er­ates a two- and three-class ver­sion of the 777-300ER. I was on the for­mer, which fea­tures 42 seats in busi­ness class ar­ranged in a 1-2-1 lay­out, mean­ing all pas­sen­gers have di­rect aisle ac­cess. Over­all, the“Clas­sic Pod”busi­ness class prod­uct leaves a pos­i­tive im­pres­sion. The seat can be ex­tended into a fully-flat bed and of­fers in­di­vid­ual power out­lets
