Rouge I think won't retire their 767s until they can find a better long range wide body airliner (are they getting 787s)?
I hope so, the 767s are getting long in the tooth. I've flown Rouge internationally on 3 round trips, EDI, GLA and FCO. On the outward FCO trip, and the inbound GLA trip, we incurred long technical delays, even though these were thoroughly overhauled birds. It was not confidence-inspiring.
The only bright spot is that on the homebound GLA trip I was able to invoke the European delay laws. I refused AC's initial offer of a $100 gift certificate applicable to my next flight and insisted they apply the European law entitling us to 600 Euros each (wife and I). With the exchange rate it worked out to our round trip being very nearly free...
rouge has a very poor customer service rating from me too, I was flying on the YYZ-LAS flight and it was on a 767. Very good flight, no turbulence, even though during very harsh weather in toronto. On the return trip, they stuffed us all into a A321. Horrible idea. It was they worst flight I have ever taken. Most of the flight involved heavy turbulence, even though there was no bad weather. When we where still taxing at LAS, we saw smoke coming into the coming through the overhead bins. The crew took notice, but did not want to repair it before we took off (we had already been delayed for 3 hours).
My point about the 767 is that it is a good plane, but it is overdue to be retired. I hope they replace is with 787 or A3XX Neos. (A330 neo?) Although, for entertainment, i have looked into how many flight rouge flies with the 767. The 767 is by far the most used plane in Rouge.
This has to be about the most ignorant uninformed thing I've read on here in a while! I could go into detail about what you call "heavy turbulence" and how you think the 321 is susceptible to it while a 767 isn't is poppycock. Also the so called "smoke". Give me a break... It's obvious you don't get out much!
