Conclusion

For 10 hours flight I expect for more.
The pitch between the seats was tight for me, there is just 75cm and I'm 178cm.
The meal was terrible, my family and I couldn't eat that, the meals was small and awful.
The Entertainment is small, there wasn't new movies from the cinema, just old American movies, Chinese, Japanese and Korean.
The crew was great, always walked with battle of water.
After meals serving the crew walked with hot and cold drinks.
The announcements of the cabin crew had spoken on English, French, Hebrew and Arabic.
After all, the Dreamliner is very quiet airplane.
I would not fly anymore with Air Canada for long haul flights in Economy class.

    Thanks for this FR.
    Well the dinner is the same as on flights to Europe but the breakfast is definitely better with that hot option.
    The snack in between meal is also pretty good compared to what you have on UA or AA for a flight of the same duration.

    Thanks for report...I totally agree with your opinion
    "I would not fly anymore with Air Canada for long haul flights in Economy class."

    They are fine in business class or premium economy, but anything beyond 5 hours or so in Economy is an ordeal.
