Air Canada Fleet Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner Cabin Interior Class Configuration and Seats Layout

This aircraft operates in a three class configuration with 20 seats in Business Class, 21 seats in Premium Economy, and 210 seats in Economy Class.

Business Class flat bed seating features a full length massage function with each seat getting direct aisle access, and Economy Class featuring new slimline seats.

Like Air Canada’s 777-200LRs — which the carrier has been retrofitting — 777-300ERs and 787-9s, the 787-8 has the airline’s newest business-class seats, customized B/E Aerospace Super Diamonds liked you’d find on some of AA’s retrofitted 777-200s and 787-9sVirgin Australia’s 777-300ERs and most of Qatar Airways’ long-haul fleet.

The business-class cabin on this aircraft was much smaller than the one on Air Canada’s other long-haul jets, though.

There are just 20 seats compared to the 28-40 on the airline’s two other versions of the 777-300ER and the 30 aboard the 787-9.

On the 787-8, there’s just a single business-class cabin with five rows of four seats each.

The seats are configured in a reverse-herringbone 1-2-1 layout.

Each seat is 21 inches wide and reclines to a full length of 80 inches, so it’s a few inches longer than those aboard the 777s.

You actually get about five more inches by putting down the thick armrest on the aisle, which is nice for sleeping.

You can adjust both the headset and the lumbar support and turn on a massage function, while the firmness of the mattress can also be tweaked to your liking.

Behind business class is a section with two lavatories and the galley, then a small premium economy cabin with three rows arranged in a 2-3-2 pattern.

Finally, there are two economy cabins with a total of 210 seats arranged in a tight 3-3-3 configuration.

Inside the storage cubby in the armrest, there’s set of noise-canceling headphones and the touch screen remote for the IFE system.

This compartment also contained a universal power outlet, a USB port and the port for the headphones.

It was little, but had enough space for me to store my power cords, camera and phone during the flight.

Embedded in the armrest was a small touch screen that controlled the individual parts of the seat.

You could use it or actual buttons to select from three pre-set positions: sit, relax and rest.

Boeing 787-8 airplane operated by Air Canada may accommodate 251 passengers in three classes.

Business class consists of 5 rows of seats that have 1-2-1 configuration.

Close location of the galleys will represent problem to passengers of the seats 1A and 1K as these seats recline inwards towards the aisle.

Passengers traveling with babies are often seated on the seats 1D and 1G as these seats have bassinet location.

The seats 5A and 5K don’t have windows.

Behind the exit row 3 rows of Premium Economy class seats are located.

There are totally 21 seats here.

The seats of the 12th row have no footrest, as the tray tables are built-in the armrests, the width of these seats is reduced a little.

Also there is no storage for these seats during take-off and landing.

These seats have bassinet location, passengers with infants are often seated here.

In addition the seats 12A and 12H are missing windows.

Economy class may transport 210 passengers.

The seats of the economy class are divided into two sections.

Most of the seats here have 3-3-3 configuration.

The seats of the 18th row are classified by Air Canada as preferred seats that may be reserved by any passenger for additional charge or by elite members free of charge.

Passengers of these seats will take advantage of extra space for passengers’ legs.

These seats have bassinet location for passengers with infants.

Among disadvantages of these seats: lack of floor storage during take-off and landing, these seats are narrower than standard as the tray tables are in the armrests making them immovable.

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

The second section of Economy class seats is located behind the exit row.

The seats of the 31st row are designated by Air Canada as preferred seats.

Passengers tend to gather in this area in order to visit lavatories while waiting to use lavatories.

These seats have no floor storage during take-off and landing and are narrower than standard as the tray tables are in the armrests making them immovable.

The seats 31A and 31K have less room because of the curvature of the airplane.

The seats 39A and 39K have misaligned windows.

Proximity of the galleys and lavatories will cause discomfort to passengers of the seats 40ABC, 40HJK and of the seats of 42nd row.

These seats are considered bad seats.
