it was a rhetorical question. They are the same just different packaging.

If you need confirmation, check the back of the bags. Both are produced by ALIMENTS KRISPY KERNELS in Quebec. So it looks like they're even coming from the same Krispy Kernels plant.

AC does not serve 'pretzels'. They are known as pretzels bretzels!

I had to look that up. At first my reaction was something to do with Brexit.

You've never noticed that the packages of pretzels that AC serves say "PRETZELS BRETZELS" printed in a manner that it looks like it's all one expression?

Quotes from the CBC article "Dozens of airline passengers in Canada hit with fines, warning letters for refusing to wear a mask" that mention AC:


"Air Canada spokesperson Peter Fitzpatrick said the airline has complied with reporting obligations and worked with Transport Canada during its investigations.

Air Canada was one of the first airlines to require face coverings and recently strengthened its policy to improve the safety of passengers and crew members, he said.

"For customers eligible for a face-covering exemption, as of Dec. 15, 2020, they will also need to present a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours from departure, at the airport check-in and/or prior to boarding the flight," he wrote in an email.

"They may need another negative COVID-19 test for their return journey if the departure of their return trip exceeds 72 hours from the time the initial test was taken."

Nice of AC add this requirement, which seems sensible and reasonable.

I check this info too often, but according to AC, in J, "After boarding, a travel essentials bag will be distributed, containing a Customer Care Kit (with mask, hand sanitizer, water bottle, and a snack), want les essentiels amenity kit, and a noise cancelling headset for use during your flight."

Personally I think this is the biggest development on the kit recently - the earbuds are hardly useable and I actually don't find the headset all that bad.

I hope it's for domestic! But something tells me that it's a pipe dream.

The headset is for Signature Class, and if I understood it correctly, domestic flights count (i.e. YYZ-YVR on a widebody, but not YYZ-YUL or YYZ-YVR on a 321).
