It was just a dig at AC Rouge Yes it's a heck of a lot better in J than Y but it's still not my favourite way to travel.

My only ever Rouge Y was a failed eUp :O

I am still confused, what's the difference between Rouge vs Mainline J between YYZ-MCO? You're literally sitting on the same seats, and just have a younger, chipper, Less experienced cabin crew.

indeed. You're basically trading an efficient but tired cabin crew for a less experienced yet somewhat friendlier group. In most cases. And they have nifty hats too!

No more hats. Hats were 86d quite a while ago. Also the foolish shoes seem to have become extinct as well.
Flew rouge YYZMCO yesterday, and they were fine in J, which was barely half occupied. However they did not offer the bread rolls until after FA#1 had confiscated my meal tray, so I was not able to accept the roll offered by FA#2 (and I actually had been wanting that roll while I had the tray) because they had my knife and butter. I said "no more knife or butter" and she read that as "no" rather than an opportunity to get me a knife or butter.

Now i'm frustrated. I wanted one of those hats. I shall never fly AC again.
To get back on topic, if you eup 10 days ahead (or 240/239/238 hours). You get to pick whatever seat you want too which is great since you are first. I tend to pick closest to the bar...

There is a thread on Rouge. But in a nutshell I dislike the lack of IFE not finding the iPads a decent alternative that get collected so far before landing. The seats may be smaller, planes may be older, and an eUp doesn't guarantee a seat up front.

Thanks.Seatguru says the first row leg room is limited, so I picked row 2.

There is a bar?

Row 2 is my favourite. (Stay out!)
I believe "the bar" is the space between the closed curtain and the flight deck where the FAs are hiding for the majority of the flight.

Kit Kats are known to be lurking somewhere in this general area. Ask with a smile and you shall receive!

yeah row one also inconveniently doesnt have a seat in front of you so you can put a bag underneath it where you store all the crap you might want to get to before the seatbelt sign gets turned off. So row two aisle seat it is. And the bartender (some people call them flight attendants) is close enough that you can get booze with minimum hassle.
