I hate having to climb over someone and I do prefer window seats.

IMO now the basic is aisle access.

A 1-2-1 lay-out is preferred for business, IMO. Exactly, I hate having to climb over someone to go to washroom or something. Even if it is my travel partner, I don't want to disturb them while they're sleeping.

Do you need a husband on the side in addition to your wife? Asking for a friend.

Anyone with experience on Etihad? Potentially booking a J class flight with them to Abu Dhabi and Bangalore soon. Would prefer not to because I want my Aeroplan, but will book with Etihad if need be.

Etihad is quite nice. Service in the air is good, the service on the ground less so. Think Emirates but not as good. I like the less blingy interior better though.

The J cabin on the 787 is nice and new, the 777 is fairly standard 1-2-1 alternating, try to get a proper window seat if by yourself.

EDIT: I booked an Aeroplan fixed mileage ticket for 12500 miles + $75 in taxes/surcharge vs. $400 ticket(after 20% off). I know I don't get the most out of my miles because it's only economy, but I'm okay with that.

Also got answers for my checked baggage questions.

On top of that Air Canada have change Taiwan to Taiwan, China on their website. The only reason they did it coz the Chinese Gov have sent letters out to major airlines asking them to change since they claim Taiwan is part of China.

Most airlines just say f off and the white house made statement about it. Simply no airline is seriously about it. Air Canada for some dumb reason decided to change Taiwan to Taiwan , China anyways. I mean what's China going to do? Ban all Air Canada flights from entering China? I mean what is China going to do if you don't listen? Nothing.

I am not from Taiwan but with this change I will not be taking Air Canada again. What's next? Telling airlines to only server Chinese food? Or don't to fly to certain countries China don't like? From what I read tons of Taiwanese are piss off about it and a lot of the Taiwan business community are already voicing their options.

Air Canada, CIBC, TD and Visa offer to buy Aeroplan

Air Canada is teaming up with three financial services giants to try to buy its former loyalty program, Aeroplan, from its current owner.

Air Canada, Toronto-Dominion Bank, CIBC and Visa made the announcement Wednesday they want to buy Aeroplan from Aimia, in exchange for taking over the liability of $2 billion worth of outstanding Aeroplan points, plus $250 million in cash.

I'm planning to travel to Asia in just a little over 2 months away from now.

Is there a right or wrong time to book flights? I've been checking every week for the past while and price's been quite consistent. Some argue book early, some argue book later.

Book as early as you can , when you have your dates confirmed and you're comfortable with the price. Kayak and Google have pretty good tools to help you make an educated guess on when airfare is at its low and high points.
