Current airbus narrow body in the AC mainline fleet:
A319, 48 aircrafts
A320, 52 aircrafts
A321, 13 aircafts.
Air Canada have mentioned that the new embraer and Bombardier aircraft will be used for both domestic and Trans boarder flight. It will help AC to maintain frequency while reducing cost substantially.
When all these embraer and bombardier aircrafts
(90 in total) becomes operational , clearly they don’t need 113 airbus 319/320/321 for domestic and trans boarder flights. Since AC management haven’t said publicly about retirement plan for 319/320/321 I am assuming AC will keep them in the fleet.
Then my question is, what the hell are they going to do with them?
