The coffee aboard Canada's biggest airlines

You don’t choose an airline based on your coffee preferences, but a bad cup 30,000 feet in the air will no doubt affect your “guest experience.” In November, WestJet decided to fly McDonald’s McCafé brand on its aircraft — it outbid Tim Hortons and Starbucks. The Calgary-based airline serves 30,000 cups of coffee a day, and chose McDonald’s based on price and other factors, including previous partnering with WestJet in children’s charities. It’ll be served (for free) in a custom-made cup with a “special McCafé and WestJet design,” and will feature the fast food chain’s loyalty card and peelable sticker. Air Canada serves Second Cup coffee on its flights; Porter Airlines serves Starbucks coffee.
