May 26 Update: Air Canada provides aircraft physical distancing configurations, earn 5x miles with select Air Miles Shops retailers, Air Canada Takeout to Takeoff contest



Air Canada announced sometime ago that they are and will be flying their planes will physical distancing in mind and RoutesOnline has put together a handy post showing how many seats Air Canada plans to sell on each of their planes for travel until June 30. You'll notice that on all planes the full business and premium economy class cabins are available but it is in economy class where the physical distancing numbers show. For example an AC Boeing 787-9 typically has 30 Business Class seats, 21 Premium Economy and 247 Economy Class seats for sale. That is now 30, 21 and 167 respectively. This means Air Canada will keep at least 80 seats open on this aircraft in economy class. You can view the full list here.


AIR MILES is offering 5x Reward Miles at select shops for their home event via airmilesshops.ca. They include Dyson, H&M and more. Offer ends June 1. Find out more here.



Back to Air Canada - today they launched a contest called Takeout to Takeoff to celebrate local restaurants. Simply show Air Canada how you are plating take out meals at home via Instagram or Twitter and you'll have a chance to win a trip to Vancouver or Montreal and a $250 credit to Nightingale or Park restaurant. Contest ends June 7. Find the complete contest details here.
