Did my first rouge flight recently - I think they should be fined just be doing what they do! ... lights no working throughout the plane - could not reset until landing ... no ventilation working all flight .... excuses given... eyes rolled...
Wouldn't fly with them.
Normally would not - but in this case it was a late booking and it was direct ... and the connection option was a pain.
For some destinations -- such as CUN -- it's either Rouge or a connection in the US (if you want to fly *A). For me, I can put up with Rouge for four hours (at least in a Rouge Plus seat -- free for SE100K, $40 otherwise).
Good point, so short haul it is on Rouge. Thanks for sharing.
I will never fly on Rouge ever again, period. I will inconvenience myself with a connection and know that I will not give an airline any money after being scammed buying a flight pass and soon after being screwed with the uncomfortable joke that is Rouge.
The slimline seats are very similar to what LH uses on intra-Europe flights ... except LH 737s are narrower yet, so take another inch off the seat width.
I fully expect that the upcoming 737s will be equipped with slimline seats. The economics are huge, they will be everywhere for short-haul Y within 10 years.
I have flown a lot on LH this year, intra Europe, and find those slimline seats to be OK.
I have to admit ( ) that flying AC Rouge in their Rouge Plus seating was not that bad comfort wise - lots of leg room and the seat width was more than adequate. That part did surprise me.
Flew Rouge (for the second time) today, CUN-YYZ on a 763. Rouge Plus seating was fine, lots of leg room in Plus (free for SEs), the refurbished interiors look attractive, and the crews' goofiness seems to have been toned down a bit. Basically same Y cabin service as on mainline. No AVOD, but that we knew anyway. If you don't need AVOD, I really don't see why Rouge should be considered substantially worse than the mainline.
