I hope this is true and not just a negotiation tactic towards Boeing. AC’s executives have said in the past the there is no need for fleet growth, hence no additional 787s. I wonder if the A330 NEOs would replace the B788s for the mainline, the B788s could work for Rouge as a partial B763 replacemen...

YOW is a nice airport, but having a full 788 and A343 arrive at the same time will be a big change capacity wise for the airport. I know they’re expanding the security area
