Question United codeshare - is this Business or Premium Economy on AC metal?

My forum searching skills have failed me so I'm reaching out for expertise.

Booking YYZ > SFO on Air Canada 787-9 in business class (flat beds)
United's website as a codeshare is showing tickets 1/2 the price of Air Canada. But under Z class and P class. Are these in fact in the business class cabin or will I find myself in premium economy? The P class option, while calling it business, shows "meals for purchase". Red flag!

Thanks!

If on AC, P and Z are business. Does United Z and P translate into AC Z and P? What booking code on AC? What are the seat maps like. But yes, odds are that these are indeed in business. Does United have a 24 grace period allowing for full refund? If yes, it's possible to buy, and then check the booking on aircanada.com. With the AC booking reference.

Thanks for the quick reply. Unfortunately United doesn't let you see a seat map, hence the confusion. I've read conflicting things about whether the booking codes line up -- that P could in fact be "one level up from Economy" on a non-United airline.

And yes, there's a 24 hour cancellation but thought I'd check in here first.

It's business class. I have flown this flight recently. It books into P for AC as well.

United cannot display seat map because it's not its fleet. Use the other booking confirmation code to pull it on the AC site.
