Where we are used to a certain aircraft and size on certain routes, this modernisation and consolidation of aircraft types will change both how AC and PAX both think
The E190s on this route are a more recent thing, and even after AC backpedaled and put some A320s back on the route and fixed the evening timetable the E190s are still frequently at or over capacity. More capacity on YYZ-YOW would be a good thing.

I'd love to see the 788s on the YOW-LHR/FRA routes, just for the PE cabin alone, but as I noted above that is not what they crews on 888/889 are talking about; they say 7M8.
