Further, a fully loaded A321 about to head west on a transcon would likely use about the same runway as an A380. This was what AA calls an A321T, the transcon low density, high premium version with just 102 seats, 1-1 lie flat in first, 2-2 lie flat in biz, small 3-3 Y in back. Likely much lighter.

AC was so close to a NEO order when Boeing stepped in and resulted in a total NB strategy changed, first since the early 1990's. Perhaps Canada would have been better off with a more balanced NB fleet between the two major players, AC and WS, hence insulated the effect of a grounding such as this.
