SeatGuru Seat Map Air Canada (2023)

Submitted by SeatGuru User on 2019/05/01

Premium Economy section, seats A&C have no storage above due to equipment stored there.. Am 6' so all bulkhead seats mean no footrest or stretch room. Sorry but since the 2019 MAX 8 crashes will NEVER fly this Boeing again.

The business class seat in this aircraft is more akin to premium economy than business. There are no noise cancelling headphones provided (AC provides the cheap earbuds) which is a bit disappointing for a business class product.

my wife and I just travelled to ixtapa from Vancouver both ways on row 15 window seats.we enjoyed the window view and the entertainment system.i would say one the best 5hr flights weve had to endure

Submitted by SeatGuru User on 2019/02/22 for Seat 12A

As other's have mentioned, the row 12 seats at more than terrible! Short flight from YVR-YYC today and I thought it would be alright, compared to the A32X AC has in their fleet. NO WAY. I had to get up a couple of times because my knees couldn't handle not stretching out. Rows 13 onwards: no problem, row 12: no way

Submitted by SeatGuru User on 2019/02/06

Anything behind row 28 can have bad smell from the lavatory. Happened on both AC780 and AC781 in 737 max


Submitted by SeatGuru User on 2019/01/31 for Seat 12d

I requested a seat with more legroom, because I can't bend my left knee, as I am wearing a brace I was given 12d. Not more legroom. LESS legroom. I paid an extra $50 for this seat, and had to get the attendants to get another passenger to trade with me. Row 12 should definitely not be incuded in 'preferred' seating.

I cannot believe that passengers walk into the galley to access the washrooms. How is this not a violation of health standards.? I'm sure no restaurant would be allowed to have washrooms opening off the kitchen. I feel sorry for the crews who have to sit and work in such close proximity to the washrooms which are quite unsavory by the end of the flight. Altogether a very poor design.

YUL-DUB in 2018 WAS on 737, first row on right was tighter for knees that sitting on left side of plance, better seating I believe in other rows. Service on flight was impeccable! Food actually "nice". Quiet interior noise, yet still not easy to sleep in those seats~!! maybe the Airbus in 2019 will be better?

Submitted by SeatGuru User on 2018/12/25 for Seat 1C

I found this aircraft an improvement over Rouge. The front business cabin which is more like Premium economy seating rather than private pods on the Air Canada wide body main line routes better than having to travel anything Rouge has to offer

Submitted by SeatGuru User on 2018/11/09 for Seat 36A

30" pitch and 3" recline means you might as well be on Greyhound. I'm merely 6' and less than 200 lbs, so this seat was as close to committing adultery with your seatmates as one can get. Not for a flight longer than two hours. Even the flight crew said the a/c is useless. No room to even change your mind, especially with a full cabin. Yes it has a big seatback display and has the same ceiling as the 787, but that does not make up for needing a chiropractor after a transatlantic flight to unfurl your spine from the seat

Submitted by SeatGuru User on 2018/11/04 for Seat 1A

YVR-OGG After years of Rouge aircraft on its Hawaii routes AC has switched to the 737-Max which is a fantastic improvement in the forward cabin. First class seats are much more comfortable and service by mainline cabin crews is professional. Entertainment screen at Row 1 is mounted on the bulkhead and easy to operate with a good size-screen and touch-screen contorls. I'm 6'0" and found leg room at 1A restricted by the bulkhead, so on future flights I will chose rows 2 or 3.

NOT a seat to pay extra for - the solid, curved bulkhead and narrow seat creates a claustrophobic effect - like being made to stand in the corner in grade school. Flew YVR - YUL but would prefer to sit in a 25-year old A320 any day for this 5-hour flight.

Submitted by SeatGuru User on 2018/10/18 for Seat 12A

This is a terrible seat. We paid £58 for supposed extra legroom and two seats together - aisle and window. The aircraft was subsequently changed, and we were put in 12A and 12B with a (large) passenger between us and the aisle. There is no extra legroom - in fact it is restricted due to the bulkhead in front of you. The width is reduced due to the tray stored in the arm rest, which is solid and won't lift up. We had a nightmare overnight transatlantic flight in these seats. Outrageous to sell this is as "preferred seating"! Am demanding a refund of supplement, and if I don't get it, will be escalating! Don't book this seat!

Submitted by SeatGuru User on 2018/10/14 for Seat 1D

This is a great plane , however the fuselage is pretty small so the overhead bins are hanging pretty low and every time my neighbor got up he hit his head on the overhead ... same thing happened to me last time I sat in the window seat. Also, all seats in the 1st row do NOT have a footrest. Also the monitors are too far away... it's a touch-screen and you almost have to unbuckle to reach it. I would choose to sit in a different row next time.

Submitted by Gad A on 2018/09/26 for Seat 1a

Seat has limited height. I am 5’10”,i had to stoop to leave the seat. Bulk head cramped the foot space when reclined.

Submitted by SeatGuru User on 2018/09/18 for Seat 4D

I was concerned that 4D would have limited recline since it's right in front of the bulkhead. However, the bulkhead has a slight angle to accommodate a proper amount of recline for this business class seat. All in all it was a nice spacious seat. Slightly better than premium economy, but not as good as the lay-flat seats available on larger planes.

Submitted by SeatGuru User on 2018/08/27 for Seat 1F

The seat chart suggests there is more space in front of 1F than 1A but it's not the case. Also the lavatory is so small that it was impossible to spit in the sink after brushing my teeth with the supplied toothbrush...

The window is pretty much blocked by 14A, especially when the passenger reclines. The seat is basically missing a window.

Submitted by SeatGuru User on 2018/08/03 for Seat 19B

Excellent new aircraft, provided you are in Preferred seating. Not enough leg room in regular economy. Entertainment system on this plane is excellent - large screen, fast response time and large inventory of movies, TV and music.

Submitted by SeatGuru User on 2018/08/02 for Seat 35D

Terrible plane to be at the back of. The last 5 rows have ZERO overhead storage as it is all taken up with crew baggage, cups, and misc. equipment for the plane. In addition since there is very little business class and only two lavatories, there's a constant queue throughout the whole flight. Very uncomfortable.

Submitted by SeatGuru User on 2018/08/02

Row 12 in this plane is horrible. You pay an additional fee of 90 € for additional legspace. But due to the bulkhead in front of you, you have to sit with your knees bended in 90 degrees. No chance to stretch further.

Submitted by SeatGuru User on 2018/08/01

Great business class seating for flights from YYZ to SFO and back again. Nice large seat back TV's. Very clear pics. Standard recline for business class, plus a foot rest that can be used or flipped up out of the way.

Submitted by SeatGuru User on 2018/07/30 for Seat 2D

Brutal to use this plane on a transatlantic flight. No business class means no flatbeds and no shower on arrival. Crew were as unhappy as the passengers and we saw it all from row 2. Almost seven hours on a plane this size, unbelievable Air Canada. Avoid this plane on transatlantic if you can.

Not great legroom in 1D, was a bit disappointing. Rows 2-4 looked better.

BATHROOMS ARE HORRIBLE. Tiny. About 1/4" of panel between them. I have also flown AA's new 737-Max and their LAVs are not much better. Tiny sink. AC putting 2 LAVs in the galley is a problem. I will connect to avoid this plane on YUL-SFO in the future.

Submitted by SeatGuru User on 2018/06/20 for Seat 20F

I flew on Air Canada's new 737Max8 from Halifax to London (LHR) in the exit row. I was a little worried that the new seats would be uncomfortable, but they were pretty good. The LED lighting is a bit annoying on night flights as its never actually dark, so make sure you bring a sleeping mask if your like me an like total darkness when sleeping. The cabin was beautiful, IFE was superb, and as a 6'6" traveler this seat was a welcome option; will definitely purchase a seat in this row again.

Submitted by SeatGuru User on 2018/06/18 for Seat 29C

Having flown in this aircraft twice, I will actively avoid it in future. Always packed and feels cramped like a transit bus during rush hour. Only 2 lavatories which are tiny and at the rear and also where the attendant station is, making for a 'twister' experience when 15 passengers trying to use mid flight.

Submitted by SeatGuru User on 2018/06/08 for Seat 35A

If you are over 6'1" or have longer legs, do not fly in Economy on the 737-Max 8 unless you want indents in your knees and a sore back from their curved seat backing while you turn sideways to twist your legs under the seat front, only to have the person in front step on your toes. Air Canada has cut at least an inch or two from their prior tight legroom in Economy to make room for all their additional preferred extra fare seats. Appalling.

Submitted by SeatGuru User on 2018/05/30 for Seat 19A

LAX-YYZ in 19A was perfectly acceptable. Shoulder room is bad due to curvature. Middle seat wasn't booked in any row on my flight (business people, lands middle of the night in YYZ). With no one in the middle, the seat is fantastic.


Submitted by SeatGuru User on 2018/05/29 for Seat 13D

Seat was not that great as expected leg room was no difference from other rows. One good benefit about this seat is it's it's after First Class.
