There are two networks at play -- Air Canada Mainline and Rouge. Given Rouge was allowing AC to grow hugely into secondary markets, what does AC plan to do without the 767s. For example, Berlin, Prague, and Budepest seem essential destinations for an airline like AC trying to be another global airline, drawing from US customers.
Is there any chance of those 767s being brought back for awhile. There must be more A333 or even A332 available at attractive prices. The fleet commonality is there.
AC needs a plane to serve routes that don't require the signature cabin. I flew Rouge NCE-YUL and it was exactly right for my vacation. I don't see may people paying full J on that same route.
I don’t think many European Rouge markets can support 28+ J seats.
There's nothing stopping AC from re-configuring the J cabins with less seats and increasing the seating in the premium and/or economy cabins.
