Again though. What's the point? AC can put on the same density at mainline apparently. Cheaper F/A pay scale and no PTVs. The reasons for Rouge's existence goes far beyond that. As noted, Air Canada could (and has) made higher density aircraft for low yield destinations in the past, as has Canadian...Jump to post

There are four main hubs where AC and WJ are battling in Canada. In three of them (YYZ, YUL, YVR), AC is the top dog. YYC is the closest fight between the two. Do you really think WestJet is battling for YUL? I think they're perfectly content with YEG being their #4. Is launching seasonal YUL-YXU c...Jump to post
It's incredible that the mainline 223 will have one more seat than the Rouge 319. This is what has me questioning what the point of Rouge is. Maybe AC can replace Rouge 319s with mainline 223s in due course and wind down Rouge. I think that over time you'll see Rouge moving its narrow body fleet to...Jump to post

Excellent news for Aer Lingus! They need to get some more A321LR's as soon as possible.

WJ operated YUL to Florida routes with loads in the low 90’s and cancelled them. It’s no different than Alaska running 93% on YVR - LAX a few years ago and cancelling the route.

Or maybe it’ll twig them into understanding what happens when capacity is removed in a market that has chronic over capacity?

You can safely assume the privatized WS will continue to chase profit and not market share.
