Air Canada's B767s have the same seat configuration as many other airlines have in this same model. First class seats are like business class seats, they do not convert fully into a bed, and the personal entertainment system is not integrated. The best seats in the first class cabin are the front ones, because they don't have another seat in their front, which can reduce your personal space.

FromLondon-London Heathrow(LHR)
ToCalgary, AB-Calgary International Airport(YYC)
When flying out of LHR, Executive First pax on AC are generally treated to high tea a few hours after the main meal service. This is a lovely touch and the scones are very nice indeed, considering they're airline food. The clotted cream is simply sinful and the the strawberry jam is decadent. A choice of teas is also offered. Although I avoid transitting through LHR if I can at all avoid it, departing on AC from T3 at Heathrow does make up for it in the form of this delightful high tea.

FromCalgary, AB-Calgary International Airport(YYC)
ToFrankfurt-Frankfurt International Airport(FRA)
Air Canada's 330s are fitted with AVOD in Executive First class. The selection is nowhere as detailed as Emirates's ICE programming of that of SQ, but it is still decent enough (about 20-30 choices) to while away 9 hours. In any event, it seems to be much better than what US based carriers are offering in their premium class cabins these days.

Seat8G
FromCalgary, AB-Calgary International Airport(YYC)
ToFrankfurt-Frankfurt International Airport(FRA)
Not a good sign when you approach the gate desk and they are paging you: a late connection from Edmonton. But a fortuitous incident in the end, as I traded 1A, which I was not keen on for 8G. No need to climb over anyone to get out of your seat or to be climbed over should your seatmate wish to visit the head. There seems to be just a bit less pitch in these seats than in the main cabin. There was the inevitable screaming baby at the front of the economy class cabin, so I do recommend the main cabin overall as it is generally quieter.

Seats exceed the levels of comfort!! They are not really comfortable,but they have a great entertainment system. Service onboard Air Canada is in English as well as in French and its service is awsome.

Seats are comfortable in ancceptable way for a flight of 5-7 hours but not more. Personal entertainment system is not provided to coach passengers. They are well-mantained and have an acceptable amount of space between them.

Seat1B
FromRichmond-Vancouver Intl(YVR)
ToVictoria-Victoria International(YYJ)
If you've never flown between Vancouver and Victoria, BC, it's worth the outrageous airfare just to skim the treetops and wave at the ferries chugging below you on what has to be one of the most scenic flights in the world. Twenty minutes of bliss. You get a candy from the flight attendant and then it's time to land.

FromRichmond-Vancouver Intl(YVR)
ToHonolulu-Honolulu International(HNL)
Air Canada used to run two flights a day from YVR with 767 service. Unfortunately, the one carrying on to SYD with the more spacious seats was booked solid. So I ended up on the older -200 model configured for domestic service. Nothing wrong with the seat per se, but 5 hours with only 38" pitch did seem a bit excessive. Just as glad I wasn't in economy. AC has replaced its SYD service with a direct flight on its new 777 -- am looking forward to trying out their new J class pods one day soon.
