    Don't see this happening any time soon. Specifically for Air Canada considering they've already announced their new seat configuration and have it flying regularly on the 787.

    This idea of a premium economy that can convert to J seems more like something that would interest LCC like Jetstar or even a carrier like Lufthansa, though again I don't see them updating their J configuration as they are just expanding their new seat to more aircraft.

    The airline where this would work really well is Hawaiian. They could use the same aircraft for their 5 hour flights as well as their 10 hour flights and for the shorter flights use the 4 abreast in the middle version and on the longer flights use the flat bed option. It would be a huge improvement on what they currently offer.
