Air Canada launch seasonal nonstop service between Orlando and Halifax

Look for Air Canada to launch seasonal nonstop service between Orlando and Halifax early next year. The scenic East Coast nonstop is scheduled to run from February 6 through May 10, 2009, and Air Canada will use a full-size A319 twinjet on the route.

Those A319s are fitted with both Economy and Executive Class eats. Every seat comes with personal in-flight audio-video.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that discount airline AirTran is selling Business Class upgrades after flyers board.The seats sell for between $49 and $99, andyou’ll need a credit card. Flight attendants have hand-held portable card readers to accommodate.

AirTran continues to sell upgrades when you book, at the ticket counter, and at the gate, but this, as far as Cheapflights knows, is an absolutely new way to get a seat up front. It could work wondrously well if you’re at the end of a long day on an otherwise chockablock flight, and want some room and a couple of “free” drinks.
