Air Canada Fleet Boeing 737 Max 8 Cabin Interior Class Configuration and Seats Layout
Air Canada has configured the aircraft with 16 recliner-style Business Class seats and 153 standard Economy Class seats.
54 seats are designated as Preferred offering additional legroom plus priority boarding that may be selected for an additional fee or selected free depending on fare and/or Altitude status).
Air Canada has now revealed the seatmap and specifications for their 737 MAX 8:
- The 737 MAX 8 will have 16 business class seats and 153 economy class seats
- Economy class seats will feature 30″ of pitch and 18″ of width
- Business class seats will feature 38″ of pitch and 21″ of width
- There will be a personal television at every seat (as a point of comparison, American has decided to eliminate personal televisions on their newest planes), as well as wifi
Air Canada’s configuration is identical to United’s 737-800s up until the exit row — United also has 16 first class seats, and then nine rows of extra legroom economy seating, including the two exit rows (that’s a lot of preferred seats).
However, Air Canada manages to squeeze in an extra three seats in the back behind the exit row, though that seems to be accomplished by putting the bathrooms at the very back, rather than in front of the rear exits.
In other words, the galley space will be smaller and cabin will be bigger.
Most of Air Canada’s narrowbody fleet presently has at least 31″ of seat pitch, so this is a downgrade in terms of personal space.
However, with seat design changing, airlines are often able to reduce pitch with materially reducing legroom.
Seat Map and Seating Chart Boeing 737 MAX 8 (7M8) Air Canada
Boeing 737 Max 8 operated by Air Canada may accommodate 169 passengers.
Passengers may choose from two classes: business and economy.
First 4 rows of seats are business class seats.
These seats have 2-2 configuration.
The seats of the 1st row are located at the bulkhead.
These seats have some disadvantages: lack of floor storage during take-off and landing, location of the entertainment display on the bulkhead and noise from the galley and lavatory located in front.
Economy class may accommodate 153 passengers.
The seats of the rows 12-20 are designated by Air Canada as Preferred seats.
These seats offer extra space for passengers’ legs and priority boarding.
However, even some of the preferred seats have disadvantages.
So, the seats of the 12th row have the following disadvantages: limited legroom, reduced width, no floor storage during take-off and landing.
In addition, the seats 12A and 12F have no windows, that is why these seats are considered bad seats as well as the seat 16A.
The only disadvantage of the seats 17A and 17F is misaligned window.
Due to the exit row located behind the seats of the 18th row have limited recline.
The seats of the 19th row are located between two exit rows.
That is why passengers of these seats will feel comfortable thanks to the additional legroom but limited recline because of the exit row located behind may be bothersome.
The best seats of the economy class are the seats of the 20th row because these seats offer extra legroom to passengers.
Location of the galleys and lavatories behind may cause discomfort to passengers of the seats 36C, 36DEF and 37ABC.
Limited recline, reduced personal space when the seats in front are reclined make the seats 36DEF and 37ABCbad seats.
