Very good seat
It was my second time on an Air Canada 787. After my previous flight, I made a promise to myself to never fly on an AC 787 again. But I had no real choice this time and I, reluctantly, flew on a 787 again. It didn't change my previous opinion at all. The seats are extremely narrow. In economy class, it's a horrible airplane to fly on. Avoid Air Canada's B787 at all cost, if you can.
Seat was acceptable but I’m only 5’7”. Not much chance to change position on a 9+ hour flight.‘Food was not good, except for the cookies and brownies!
I was very comfortable and the flight crew was great
18K is a preferred seat. There is a bulkhead, so legroom is not as good as exit row seats, but still much better than regular economy. There are no lavatories nearby, so nobody is crowding your area, no noises or smells. I got a window seat so that I could look out the window... However, about an hour into the flight crew darkened all windows, and disabled individual controls. Windows remained tinted until end of flight. This is apparently a common occurrence with AC... If you want a window seat for actually looking out the window, you might want to reconsider with the 787.
Despite being a "preferred" seat advertising extra legroom, this is not true due to the bulkhead directly in front of the seat. As someone who's 6'3, there was not enough room to extend my legs and it was quite uncomfortable. Other aircraft (and other airlines) provide a lot more legroom in their preferred seats. Also, as someone else said, this is the row with the bassinet, so there's a good chance there will be a baby sitting nearby. Luckily the one in my row was quiet the whole time.
I am 6’ 2”. Seat has great legroom as it is by wing exit. I can’t get comfortable enough to sleep on a plane but this eat allows you to at least stretch out. Downside is that is right by restrooms......you need to be tolerant of the other passengers as they unavoidably bump into you and step on your feet.
I flew Air Canada's 787-9 from Vancouver to Shanghai and back. Everything was okay. The seat had ample legroom, although it was not spacious. Service, entertainment and food were also alright. Overall, Air Canada's 787 is a perfectly acceptable aircraft for long haul travel. The experience is definitely not one that I would pay more or go out of the way for. However, if the price was right and the timing was convenient again, I wouldn't mind taking Air Canada again.
Sat in the business class seat which was shaped as a pod. Overall, I like these seats since they provide privacy, a large video screen for entertainment, work space and a lie-flat bed. The bed I felt was narrow, and tapers towards your feet which does not allow much freedom for your feet if you like to reposition them while sleeping. The pods are pointed towards the windows, unlike the older versions which were pointed towards the aisle. You also get air nozzles directed down towards you which is great for comfort when using blankets when sleeping.
Looks like the major issue of Air Canada configuration cabin is about the lack of lavatories. Company should install at least 2 more lavatories on each plane to avoid long lines in corridors bothering passagers, long time waiting and gathering around WC. Overall the seats are OK for economy and premium, but if you can't go when you gotta go, it ruins entirelly the experience of a 10 hours flight. Just needs more lavatories.
These pods are cramped and uncomfortable - lots of wasted space. Probably good for lie flat sleep. The IFE and noise cancelling headphones are great. Meal was terrible. They ran out of one premium wine after I had 2/3 of a glass. Glad I was not in economy on this full flight from yvr to yyz
25% of the right site were blocked by the emergency exit. Seat was next to the toiletts and people geather in front of your seat.
I had not checked about this aircraft before booking YVR-MEL, and was very concerned when seeing that this site showed 30" pitch in coach, having flown another 787 with 30" stated pitch. The worry was foundless - the seat was closer to 32". The neighbouring seat happened to be empty, so it was a reasonable 15-hour flight.
Seat 18G was somewhat uncomfortable due to not being able to extend legs fully due to bulkhead wall. Was sat next to an infant in this seat due to bassinet in the bulkhead. Luckily baby was asleep most of the 9hr flight, but would be an issue if she kicked off screaming. I suspect you're basically guaranteed to sit next to an infant in this section. TV monitor pulls out from under right armrest, but sits at a bit of an awkward angle, but worked fine. Seat is good to be able to stand up and stretch at any time. Not sure it was worth the extra money, but it was either that or 45A.
Terrible seat pitch and width in economy class, very uncomfortable on a long haul flight. Other airlines I've flown with had much more comfortable seats in the same aircraft.
The seat pitch was grossly inadequate for a person 6' 2", for the long overnight flight from Toronto to Vienna (Austria), the seat was very uncomfortable and since Air Canada has 9 seats in 3-3-3 configuration the aisles are narrow and passengers walking to/from washrooms bump into seated ones thus constantly disturbing them; the experience was of a "Nightmare-liner" not "Dreamliner".
The seat was comfortable with more than sufficient leg room. There was difficulty/inability y to adjust the location of the arm rest tv as little to no flexibility to be able to do so. Also the jog in the aisle between business class setting and row 18 made It difficult for flight attendants to manoeuvre and passenger had to exercise caution as well.
Travelled London to Calgary in seat A8 and in seat A6 on return, both were comfortable and the service was excellent. In A8 I was not disturbed by noise from toilets or galley. In A6 the blank window of A5 helped reduce light glare. My first time in business with Air Canada and found the heavy padded seat belt a little strange but got used to this.
Seat 18H is a standard bulkhead seat, but it was inconvenient due to the bend in the aisle going into Premium Economy. Flight attendants backing up the aisle with service carts frequently bumped the seat, sometimes with a lot of force (enough to spill red wine in one instance). I sit exclusively in aisle seats, so know enough to not hang out into the aisle. I would not choose this seat again. I assume 18C would have the same issues.
Very cold seat. Good space for legs cause no seat are in front. Very poor duty free on board.
