Air Canada 777-300ER row 18 armrest

Does anyone know whether the armrests on row 18 of an Air Canada 777-300ER go up? It costs $120 to upgrade and we're traveling with a toddler, so it's really important to us that the armrest goes up.

My husband asked a pilot buddy, who was told by a senior flight crew that it does go up. However, when I phoned Air Canada just now to upgrade, the phone operator said her system shows row 18's armrests do NOT go up because there are TVs in it.

I would greatly appreciate any input! I have googled extensively and searched through this forum with no answers.

With that gap between 18 and the row in front I'd assume the screen IS stowed in the armrest!

Edit : looks like a bulkhead...so even if the screen is on the wall..the tray table is likely to be in the armrest...

Not sure about Row 18 specifically, but the other exit rows have fixed armrests on all but the E/F seats:

I know that 18 A,B,C and H,J,K are with the TV below and table in the armrest and the armrest does not move since I use these seats a lot. I also believe the center 4 do not move but I have seen bassinets hung on the wall in front of them.

Nice picture, you can see the one seat has the armrest go up in the centre four seats. We've taken advantage of this in the past. Best luck with the little one. Bring snacks, toys and more diapers than you think you'll need.

Arm rests

I hope you found your answer. I'm curious why traveling with a toddler requires a raised arm rest?

Ease of access to care for the little one. Not something well understood until a baby enters one's life!

Seats look really tight.

This is a great example of why I read Flyertalk. Poster asks a question of importance to them which (frankly) I have no idea, others jump in with pictures and answers, now I know why the OP wanted the info and have learnt a little bit.

Great job to all.

When the toddler naps they can use your leg as a pillow, well until their feet reach the next seat.

The best part about flying with younger kids is that you can put up the armrest and create a seat that is wide enough for an actual adult.
