They're only "accelerating the retirement" of the 319s (both rouge and mainline). There are still plenty kicking around the fleet and that will certainly be the case for a while. No reason they can't use a 319, rouge or mainline, to run the BOG route this summer.

It could definitely be done with an A220 but seems unlikely they will have enough birds yet to assign one to the route. I'm thinking it will be an A330 - there really aren't enough 788's to cover all of these former Rouge routes.
Agreed on the 220, and on the small number of 788s. The 330 might be too much for the BOG route if traffic is down much though.
