Air Canada Schedule/Aircraft Changes?

Good Evening Everyone,

I just booked two RT tickets YHZ-YYT-YHZ for early June (gotta get home for some of Mom's cooking!). Air Canada's website is currely showing a boring A319 for both legs, as it's been for ages and ages.

With the arrival of new E175/E190 models along with the CRJ705, is there any chance the schedules might be revised and changed to the newer aircraft?

Any AC Employees have any inside info? t's not that the A319 is a bad plane, but I've been on them far too often! It might be nice to sample something new.....

Thanks,
JasYHZ

Sorry, I don't see that route getting any downguage in acft at that time of year. If anything it may go to a 320 or 321.

Are load percents on that route still fairly high enough for 319 service?

I remember when AC's FL860 using 763s was a popular option but after a few passengers fell asleep and stayed on at YYT while picking up passengers going to LHR, this option was discontinued....or was it?

AC860 still operates. AC also operates 2x319 and 1x320 daily. The loads are consistently good.
