    Am I the only AeroPlan Business Class user who HATES the new three across seating with an empty seat in the middle?

    European airlines config F like that, and no, I'm not a fan.

    Yah...saw that on MCO - YYZ earlier in the month. Am I ever glad I didn't pay the $300 upgrade. Anyone remember "Chicago Class"?

    Whether it's called, J or F, (or something else) I don't like it!

    Looking at a trip to LAS in the next few months, and I won't even consider using AC for the flights. The rouged nonstop YYZ-LAS is the only AC nonstop available from here, and if we go the longer routing on a mainline flight to either SFO or LAX we're still rouged the rest of the way. Westjet with miles credited to AA is another choice for a nonstop, or connections via EWR, ORD, or DFW/IAH with UA or AA will be our other options, and possibly even (gasp) DL. In any case, AC will lose our business for that trip, not that they care.

    I guess it's marketed as "Rouge Plus". How much does AC actually charge for these seats? More than Flex, but less than Latitude?

    KLM does the same thing. IDK about actual cost. Those segments on (SkyTeam) equipment with that config are usually intra-Europe and I use miles for any non-domestic travel.

    It's pretty much standard intra-European J for almost any airline. Sometimes the middle seats aren't even blocked (once the plane is full enough).

    That's no good! AF and KLM have never done that on any of my flights. That's the only thing that differentiates it from a Y to a J seat.

    That, and the meal service. (Although European Y meals are often better than North American domestic F ...)

    Had this happen to me LHR-CPH on SAS a couple months ago. Booked in J row 2 on a 737. Flight left with one empty seat in row 1. I got my meal but I sure didn't have elbow room to eat it.
