Reply To: Do you remember your first business class flight?

Back to Forum


My first business class flight was an upgrade on Air Canada in 1991 from LHR to YYZ. My dad had purchased a full fare ticket, and on checkin at the old T3, the agent looked at the ticket, and called his supervisor over. I was a bit nervous and asked if there was a problem (It was a one way ticket through to YWG). His answer, the flight is full and we are looking to upgrade some passengers. Needless as a 21 year old this was hitting the jackpot. It was the old AC B747-200, with recliner seats and overhead screens, but certainly a lot more comfortable than economy, and the service was certainly to write home about. Sitting in the nose of the aircraft was a great experience. I do not remember using any lounge back then.
