Air Canada has debuted its new international interior as the three-class, 251-seat Boeing 787 launches service.

The new international business class features lie-flat executive pods with a pneumatic cushion system that when extended to the lie flat position provides 203cm (80in) of length.

The cushions headrest also offers a massage feature, a unique feature found for the first time in business class.

The Panasonic 18in personal entertainment screen with a touch handset is the largest in a North American carrier, as well as power and USB outlets.

Business class cabin seats are configured in a 1-2-1 configuration.

Business class passengers also have access to a bar area located just aft of the business class cabin.

The 787 cabin contains 20 business class seats, 21 premium economy and 210 economy seats.

The cabin will be rolled out in all new 787’s, and be installed on the original Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, although not the 5 newer high density configured aircraft.

Although offered on Air Canada’s narrowbody fleet, wireless Internet access is not being currently deployed to its widebody fleet, including the Dreamliner, and they are not committing to deploying it in the future.

The company also launched a new marketing campaign with the arrival of the Dreamliner. The slogan “Your World Awaits” will serve as Air Canada’s new tagline, and be prominently featured in all advertising and branding.
