Air Canada Switches to Premium Economy on B737 MAX 8

Air Canada has announced a switch from an International Business Class fare/product to a Premium Economy fare/product onboard the new B737 MAX 8 aircraft serving Shannon-Toronto and Dublin-Montreal beginning in June. Existing bookings in the Business Class cabin are being switched to Premium Economy from 12th-14th March with a fare adjustment applicable. Customers previously in the Business Class cabin on these flights may also opt to route via Dublin-Toronto, which retains a full International Business Class product, or decide on a full refund.

A complimentary amenity kit, a pillow and blanket, separate cabin, enhanced catering and beverages, double the checked baggage allowance of Economy class (2 x 23kg), 96.5cm seat pitch, movable leg rest, integrated entertainment system and onboard wi-fi. Premium Economy customers are also eligible for priority check-in, boarding and baggage handling.
