    Shocking I say - shocking.

    Interesting that they are using rouge to "pioneer" some new routes.

    Perhaps someone who's in the know could offer a comparison between the narrow, tightly-packed, uncomfortable seats on the Express DH3s and DH4s, and the Rouge Y-class seats?

    I have managed to avoid Rouge thus far (save one dreadful flight to YYZ, occasioned by a misconnect), but I spend enough time on the feeder-lines to know what a chicken must feel like within a factory-farm cage.

    Rouge A320 seat width is the same as mainline A320. The seats are slimline ones (comfortable for some, not so much for others), and tightly-spaced if you don't manage to get a Rouge Plus seat.

    Having flown a DH1 last week (and assuming DH3 is the same), I'd definitely fly a Rouge flight over DH3. My sympathies for all your DH4 and (especially) DH3 segments!

    Well, I learned, the hard way, that DH4 bulkhead seats (with the tray-tables in their big boxy armrests) are clearly intended only for skinny-butted men. :/

    Being a male with an ample butt I agree. AC calls those seats premium if you can believe that.

    Since I happen to like those seats, should I be taking that as a compliment or an insult?

    I would defer to Ann Landers on that subject, m'dear!

    I`ll take a DH3 or Q400 anyday over a Rouge seat. It is the hammocking (ie you fall into the crater and get your thighs cut by the rim). For my body type (neither over or underweight) and about 5`11``. Of course I wouldn`t fly any of these for more than 1.5 hours . . . (well I wouldn`t fly domestic NA, ie. Airbus, rouge at all until they replace the Premium cabin seats)

    I predicted long ago the imminent death of Rouge and here it is. This is ACs way of expanding what should be mainline routes, yet using the low cost arm to do so. Shame on the Canadian unions for not seeing this coming. This isn't Rouge anymore, this is AC mainline light. The concept of a high density LCC makes sense to leisure markets to compete with Air Transat etc....this is not it and AC is muscling out their legacy workers in the process.
