Toronto-Halifax Air Canada Business Class Review

I had to fly from Toronto to Halifax recently and as the price difference between the economy and business classes on Air Canada were minimal, I decided to fly with some comfort and class.

Business class is considered as Zone 1, so boarding the aircraft was swift.

Air Canada deployed an Embraer E190 for this two-hour flight.

Shortly after I boarded, I was offered a drink – either water or orange juice – and I went for the first. Then came the newspapers – again with two options, the National Post or the Globe and Mail. I went for the Post (already had taken a Globe copy from the lounge!).

 

 

Shortly after take-off, we were offered nuts and beer/wine to go with. I took beer but declined the second filling of the nuts bowl.

Even though it was only a two- hour flight, there was lunch, considering it was an afternoon flight.

There were two options for lunch – chicken tandoori with yellow rice or eggplant pesto lasagna with alfredo sauce. Of course, there was salad and the dessert as well.

 

 

I chose chicken tandoori as the main dish. It was indeed a full meal for a two-hour flight. I am used to dry but juicy tandoori so I was surprised to see some sauce in this dish.

I washed down the meal with a cup of coffee, served in a mug.

There was not much for entertainment – one of the ‘latest additions’ was the Dirty Dancing and the World category had just one movie available.

But then I had enough to read to complete the flight.
