IIRC, PR's "long range" A321neos just have extra fuel tanks, and aren't proper A321neoLRs right?
If so, I totally agree that PR should go for the neoLRs sometime. They'd have the more efficient door layout (IIRC the ACF layout is the basis for the A321neoLR), enough range to get to Sydney every day of the year, and could even offer a 3-class product on it should they wish. And they could update the Business Class to something all-aisle-access like Thompson's Vantage Solo.
And the currently-used-for-longer-flights A321neos (the ones with the extra fuel tanks) could then be used to replace older A321-200s or something.
