Air Canada Fleet Airbus A330-300 Cabin Interior Class Configuration and Seats Layout

This aircraft features seat back televisions and audio at each seat, even for short domestic services.

Passengers should bring their own headphones to avoid a potential $3CAD charge.

The 27 business class seats are arranged in a herringbone configuration, in which every seat faces outwards openly into the aisle.

The layout is 1-1-1, with the “A” seats along the left-side windows having far more privacy than either the “F” seats down the middle or the “K” seats along the right-side windows, since you’re facing out against a divider rather than a fellow passenger.

The one-two-one configuration means everyone has aisle access.

There is good storage space underneath the ottoman at the foot of your seat and handy compartments for water bottles, reading matter, phones and spectacles in the arm rests, where you’ll also find the remote control, headphone jack, USB and power adapter.

There’s no turn-down service, but controls are easy to use, converting the seat into a 203cm (six foot, seven inches) flat bed at one touch.

You can adjust the firmness of the mattress, as well as the lumbar support and headrest height.

The in-seat massage function got a good work-out during the 14-hour flight.

Mattress cover and a light doona and large pillow are provided, along with slippers but no pajamas, so if you are planning on sleeping for most of the flight consider packing something sleep-friendly in your cabin bag. 

Amenity packs include the basics – socks, earplugs, eye mask (you’ll need them if you’re in row 1 near the brightly lit galley and bathroom), toothbrush, lip balm and hand cream by Vancouver-based aromatherapy brand, Vitruvi – you’ll find their products in the bathroom too, which also has a large window with a great view.

The large fixed-screen TV has a remote control as well as a touch-screen menu.

There’s a variety of new releases with a wide range of language options – if you like French movies you’ll love the selection – as well as classics, binge-worthy TV series, audio books and podcasts, mostly on travel destinations.

The save function means you can build a list to watch during the flight.

The noise-cancelling headphones deliver crisp sound and the inflight map is displayed at the bottom of the screen, so you can check your progress without interrupting the show.

The Premium Economy configuration on Air Canada’s 330 is 2-3-2. 

The seats are wide and there’s plenty of space between rows.

Each seat also has a foot rest, excluding the bullhead ones.

The addition of the footrest makes it a little easier to sleep in a reclining mode.

Each seat also comes with a designated power charger – and you don’t have to share one with the person next to you.

In coach there’s often one charger per two passengers.

This airplane may transport 265 passengers in two classes.

This version is the most common among two versions operated by Air Canada and is used during long-haul transcontinental flights to Europe.

Business class consists of 37 open suites that are located in 2 sections.

First section has 9 rows of seats per 3 in each.

All A seats of the business class have more privacy as they face a part of the aisle and not the seat of another passenger.

Proximity of the lavatory and galley may represent a problem for passengers of the seats of the 1st row.

The seats 9A and 9K are considered bad seats as they have no windows and close location of the galleys may be bothersome.

However passengers of these seats will fell more privacy as there are closets here that are adjacent to these seats.

The second section contains remaining 10 open suites of the business class.

The seat 10A has the following disadvantages: there is no windows here, the closet, galley and main boarding door are located too close to this seat.

Close location of the lavatory will cause discomfort to passengers of the seats 11G and 11K.

Economy class may transport 228 passengers.

The seats in the economy class are also divided into two sections.

First sections contains 13 rows of seats, most of them have 2-4-2 configuration.

The seats of the 18th row are designated by Air Canada as preferred seats that may be chosen by any passenger for additional fee.

Elite members may reserve these seats free of charge.

Passengers of the seats 18AC and 18HK may take advantage of extra knee space but not necessarily for the legs.

All the seats of the 18th row have basinet location that is why passengers with babies are often seated here.

The seats 18DEFG are often bumped by other passengers passing by and service carts because of the alignment of these seats.

Close location of the lavatories may cause discomfort for passengers of the seats 29DEFG and of the 30th row.

Also these seats may be less reclining because of the bulkhead located behind.

The second section of economy class is located behind exit row and begins with the seats that are designated as preferred seats, these are the seats 34DEFG and the seats 35AC and 35HK.

These seats may be reserved by elite members free of charge, other passengers will have to pay extra fee for these seats.

Other passengers tend to gather in this area in order to visit lavatories and this fact may cause discomfort to passengers of these seats.

At the same time passengers of these seats will take advantage of extra legroom.

The seats 34DEFG also have extra space for the knees.

However, passengers with infants are often seated here as these seats have bassinet location.

All D seats of this section have restricted storage and leg room due to presence of entertainment equipment here.

As there are no seats behind the seats 45D and 45G are often bumped by other passengers passing by and service carts.

Legroom of the seats 46DFG is limited as they are misaligned with the row in front.

Proximity of the lavatories ad galleys will represent problem for passengers of the seats 49DFG and for passengers of the last 51st row.

Second version of Airbus A330 is used also during short domestic flights.

This airplane offers seats of three classes: business, premium economy and economy.

Business class consists of 27 open suites with 180 degrees recline.

Business class occupies first 9 rows of seats that have 1-1-1 configuration.

All these seats can be transformed in a fully bed.

The noise from the galleys and lavatories located in front may cause discomfort to passengers of the seats of the 1st row.

The seats of the 9th row have the same disadvantage – location of the galleys behind.

Behind the seats of the business class 21 seats of premium economy class are located.

These seats have 7 inches recline.

When this airplane is used during the flights within North America these seats are designated by Air Canada as standard economy class seats.

The seats of the 12th row are considered good seats as they provide extra legroom.

However, these seats have no floor storage during take-off and landing and are a little narrower than standard because the tray tables are built-in the armrests making them immovable.

Economy class may accommodate 244 passengers on the seats that have 4 inches recline.

The seats of the economy class are divided into 2 sections separated from each other with an exit row.

First section consists of 15 rows of seats.

There are totally 116 seats here.

Most of these seats have 2-4-2 configuration.

Passengers of the seats of the 18th row will take advantage of extra legroom.

These seats are considered good seats.

Among disadvantages of these seats: lack of floor storage during take-off and landing and slightly reduced seat width.

For passengers traveling with infants the seats 18DEFG offer bassinet location.

Limited recline and location of the lavatories behind are the main disadvantages of the seats 31DEFG, 32AC and 32HK.

Second section of economy class seats consists of 18 rows with totally 128 seats.

Thanks to the exit row located in front the seats 34DEFG, 35AV and 35HK offer extra space for passengers’ legs.

However, these seats have no floor storage during take-off and landing, are a little narrower than standard because the tray tables are in the armrests.

Other passengers tend to gather in the area of these seats and of these seats while waiting to use lavatories causing discomfort to passengers of these seats.

The seats 34DEFG offer bassinet locations for passengers traveling with babies.

Protrusion of the exit doors inside is one more disadvantage of the seats 35A and 35K.

Due to awkward transition of the middle seats of the rows 45-46 from 4 to 3 the seats 45D and 45G are often bumped by service carts and other passengers passing by.

Noise from the galleys and lavatories located behind may represent problem to passengers of the seats 49DFG, 50C, 50H, 51AC and 51HK.

Another disadvantage such as limited recline makes the seats 49DFG, 51AC and 52HK bad seats.
