The following is a portion of a notice that Air Canada sent to its ‘Prestige’ class members:
“Priority Boarding is now available for travel within Canada and to the U.S. when you fly in Latitude, Executive Class or Executive First®. This exclusive privilege minimizes your waiting time at the airport by letting you board first, or at your leisure.”
Well HURRAY and FINALLY!
United Airlines has been giving boarding preference to its loyal customers for the longest time already, so I’m glad that Air Canada finally woke up.
But then again, because no one ever actually boards by seat and row number in Canada anyway – because the agents won’t turn anyone out of line regardless of the fact that their row hasn’t been called -what difference will it make? I’ll still be looking for a place to stow my stuff in an overhead bin that isn’t anywhere near my seat.
