    "Air Canada is very pleased to be the preferred airline of 83 per cent of those customers who fly most often and have the widest experience of air travel – namely frequent business travellers. Our rating has now improved 14 percentage points since 2008 according to the Ipsos Reid Canadian Business Travel Study, the most extensive survey of its kind in Canada . We are especially gratified that the trend is positive across the country, with a significant increase in our preferred rating among Western Canadian business travellers in 2014," said Benjamin Smith , President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada. "The margin between Air Canada and its major domestic competitors continues to grow, reflecting customer appreciation of the continued improvements we have made to our products, including new and refurbished aircraft and Maple Leaf Lounges, improved priority airport services and on-board service enhancements for the comfort and convenience of our customers. Business travellers also prize our superior schedule,"

    It still amazes me how people like to hate AC no matter how well they do or have improved. Interesting psychological study should delve into that psychosis!! :)

    I hadn't noticed an improvement, particularly on recent flights where I've been rouged. Are you seeing something I'm not? In fact, on my last trip in J (ORD to YYZ) the service wasn't great, despite having a very diligent FA. She apologized because they have systematically reduced the cabin crew and she now has to look after 22 Y PAX in addition to all the J's.

    Maybe that's my psychosis talking! I don't actually "hate" Air Canada. They are my preferred carrier and I'd take them more if I could, I just wish they'd be better and more consistent.

    Flying cross-border Thursday. Because AC is "integrating" its schedule with UA (which, I take it to mean, is "replacing all AC flights with codeshares on UA unless we Rouge it") I will be on UA. Ugh. "Improvement."
     
  13. Air Canada is the best in class ! I thought it was Air France. :)
