Air Canada Business Class - alcohol service

Hi - I'm flying a domestic business class flight within Canada - starting off the vacation. My flight is in the morning. Is alcohol served pretty much any time of day or night? Thinking a caesar or screw driver might be in order!

Thanks

Yes, a full bar service is available for the entire flight, regardless of time of day. Enjoy the vacation!

What the others say above.

I take "morning" domestic flights often and always have my Scotch.

Alcohol is catered. It it would surprise me if they could do a halfway decent Caesar. Id stick with the screwdriver.

They use canned extra spicy Clamato for the Caesar. No salted rim or other seasonings. Your prejudice may be worthy, but when I've been overseas for months the 'taste of home' is definitely soothing and welcome.

I think their Caesar is ok, but the proper solution is to order both.

Well I learned something new today.

All these times I've missed out:
1) Breakfast booze
2) Caesars

1. Mimosa. If they won't do it for free, it may be worth paying for. Especially during EYW. Otherwise, ask for a Sangria. It takes forever to make, but only uses ingredients from J.

2. Not quite my thing, but as long as I love OJ, I'm satisfied in the morning.

Alcohol is no problem, it's the Kit Kats that are restricted. Or so I have been led to believe.

Once or twice when I've been going YEG-YYZ on my way to Athens, I've done a morning flight where I'm like...eeehhh...can I get wine yet and not seem like a drunk? (Because huzzah for the crap on the Rouge direct)

Well, both times I was the person who got the bottled opened, immediately after which a few others in J also had a glass.

Indeed, it's 5pm somewhere.
