Premium Economy / 787 on domestic route

I've seen conflicting info on this:

On a domestic (i.e. YYC-YYZ) 787-9 flight, is the PE cabin kept separate from the main economy cabin (i.e. with a curtain)?

Or do Economy passengers go...

Is this confirmed . . . area all 737s now confirmed to have 2x2 in Premium (with a separate 'private' lav for Premium)?

Any word about Business on the 787 ... YYC to/from YYZ? Are they doing a meal service there, or is that just a (expensive) “snack-y meal” with a pod to sit in?

Yep. Upgrades there are very, very rare — and, per the program terms, the timeshare properties don’t offer them.

Beyond it being the rule for a timeshare property, I believe all of their...

Interesting.

The additional flexibility is for Basic fares only -- and with a pretty small time window.

This is still far less flexibility than the U.S. carriers have now put in place.

M Club lounges and Coronavirus risk

As virus-stricken cruise ships are talked about in the news, one of the most common themes is about how they’re a health nightmare — because of reliance on buffets.

Yes, because - as mentioned above - fees and taxes can vary wildly based on the point of origin of the ticket.

WestJet and Delta have been talking about reciprocal benefits (and a JV) since summer 2018. While a JV admittedly takes time, offering customers reciprocal benefits does not.

Have you tried calling?

I don’t think you’ll need to be prepared to “argue“ about anything in the tariff.

If you call in and say you booked Premium because you wanted Premium, and now you’ve...

No, resort (ie hotel) guests do not get access to the Villas (ie timeshare) pools.

The villas pools are great, but relatively small — so they keep them exclusively for Villas guests.

WestJet execs have said a big, flat “no” to alliance membership at conferences and industry events (although have never really confirmed that with their own customers).

I guess I don’t even think of that weird little open-air set-up at the C gates as being a real “lounge”. I can’t fathom how anyone thought that would be a good idea.
