It will go ahead, but I don't expect an announcement for a few weeks. Work was to begin in the fall, and the refurbishing was announced even before AC
said it was seeking new aircraft. The issue now is what features to incorporate that might go into new aircraft at a later date. For example, when AC
knew it was buying 777s and 787s, it looked at a number of Boeing proprietary features and at products that would be suitable for the 777s and 787s so that the 767 product would "harmonize" with the interiors of the new aircraft. If AC
ends up adding used Airbus planes, that potential/need for harmonization is not there. I would expect AC
management to be thinking over whether to repackage the 777/787 purchase to make it acceptable to the pilots, or whether Plan B could include new Airbus equipment.
