Toronto to Montreal is a very quick flight, in fact it’s only 48 minutes in the air and 1:09 gate to gate so this review is a short one. Even so, there are benefits to flying in Business Class (AKA J Class) but I wouldn’t recommend expending additional points to fly in J for this short of a flight.
As a point of interest, flying a short haul flight on Air Canada using Aeroplan will cost you 7,500 points one way. Business is double at 15,000 one way. So unless you have a ton of points and really, really, really want to experience J, steer far, far away from J class redemptions. The only reason we were up in J was because it was part of a larger reward where we basically traverse the world and touch 5 of the 7 continents.
As soon as we were at cruising altitude, the flight attendants made their way through the Business Class cabin and provided breakfast to those that wanted it. I thought I would take the chance as I was feeling a bit peckish and wanted to see if the rumours of the terrible omelette were true.
After experiencing one bite of the omelette, I noped out. The flavour was indistinguishable from anything I had ever eaten before. I tried the sausage with similar results. The only thing I ended up eating was the fruit and it was not great either.
So far, Air Canada hasn’t given me much reason to want to fly their Business Class product domestically.
Mercifully the flight attendant could see that I had no interest in breakfast and took the meal away reasonably quickly. The next thing I knew, we were landing in Montreal, the first part of our vacation!
