AC narrow body business class armrests should be made moveable.

As a suggestion and improvement to future hard product, AC narrow body business class armrests between seats should be made moveable.

The seat should be modified so that the mini drink table would be placed on the side where aisle or window is.

This way one can lie across 2 seats when the other seat is empty.

Sometimes I actually prefer economy flights when it is not full and when one can lie across 3 in a row (e.g last flight from Vancouver to Calgary of the night)

One way I can see this happen is AC moving to European style J.

But personally I think the current AC narrow body product far superior.
Dover2Golf and pilot007 like this.

Or when you're flying with a loved one, you can take middle/window or middle/aisle.

I'm not sure if it's possible to accommodate me on my own and me with another person without having two drastically different seating configurations in J.

I doubt that AC would design a seat for when they are not full. Between P fares, LMU, eUps and bids, their focus is filling the seats.

Slightly off topic but I wish the armrests in economy between the seat and the window/ side wall were movable. It would make sleeping easier as you'd be able to curl up against the wall.
