Re: Air Canada A220 launch - Interior Picture and New routes

I flew Rouge for the first time yesterday on a 319 and I felt like a sardine. I am under 6ft and felt like I was getting up and personal with seat in front of me.

Maybe AF will get E2's for their HOP! subsidiary. Possibly KL could get A223's to replace their 737-700's :-)
It's called horses for courses.


They should standardize the fleet around E2s (175s & 190/195s)
