MEX is rouged. Found discussion on http://www.airliners.net/forum/viewt...1219#p19371219

(in the past few months I have booked my own intra-mexico flights to MEX just to avoid AcRouge. Not anymore I guess.)

eff 01MAY17 Toronto – Mexico City
AC1980 YYZ0800 – 1145MEX 319 D

Meanwhile Aeromexico is increasing service to both YYZ and YVR - and has a superior Y product to mainline AC, let alone Rouge.

To all those of you who like to dismiss the comments of crew, or saying that they are guessing changes and routes, or that they hear or make up rumours but don't really know what's going on......

......PERHAPS

I know there has been plenty of speculation about #1 but I had not heard #2.

So there you have it boys and girls, listen when your crews speak to you. You may learn things you don't really want to know.

SFO was de-rouged because they closed the ACr 319 base in YVR.

With a Rouge narrowbody replacing a mainline narrowbody, if you are sitting in the front cabin is Rouge really a substantial difference?
