AC to HKG in Y - unclear about 343's

Am considering flying to HKG in Y on a 343. Tried to wade through the refurb-status thread for AC aircraft, but couldn't really get a definite answer. Any PTV's in Y on the 343's? I think the answer is no, right? Thanks.

Assuming you are flying out of YVR, if PTV is important to you, both O8 and CX have PTV. O8's business class fare is actually quite attractive. However, some Y seats on AC's A343 have 34" seat pitch which is more generous than O8 and CX plus Aeroplan points. You get about 13,000 Status Miles on a YVR/HKG roundtrip.

Thanks for the info - initially I was "excited" as I've been on AC's E170's with the AVOD, and thought it was very nice - and AC's price was very competitive. However, going through YVR is bit of a hassle for me, and the schedule is not particularly good for me either... so I guess I'll have to pass this time

08 (Oasis Hong Kong) Business Class fare is the same as Y class in AC / CX. If you are lucky on B-LBC which is from ANA, they have first class seats but Oasis sell them as Business Class. Since 08 currently only has 3 planes, your chance is 1 in 3.

AC will be putting the 777 onto ALL flights as the 340-300 are being replaced. So maybe you will get lucky for your return flight Dont make CX your second choice.... they should be your LAST choice...

PS avoid AC's 340's... they have very "worn out" interiors.
