Keeping the IFE makes me think they're looking at keeping these planes on the longer routes (ie. YYC-IAH). On these routes, the J product isn't all that competitive...I mean, a 4 hour flight and no hot meal?
They get a fair amount of TB work, so I think this may be more J seats for connecting passengers. AC has stated that increase US origin passengers (especially in J) is a major priority, and this should assist in offering a better product for those people.
