YYZ to YQB in business: A319 Rouge vs. E175?

I am planning to travel from Toronto to Quebec City in Business. The choice is between "Premium Rouge" on an A319 vs. "Business Class" on an E175. Which one do you recommend?

Thank you!

Hmmm...
The service is likely to be the same on both types.
Seat comfort similar.
More bin space on the 319.
Individual tv on the 175 (not really important on that short route).
Either, but personally the 175, due to individual J seats on the A side would make it the winner for me

E75 for a quicker boarding process and departure.

I fly 1A on the 175 every few weeks. Very comfortable.

Whichever one has the schedule that better suits your needs.

I fly this route regularly and the service has always been far better on Rouge.
So if it fits my schedule, I would not hesitate to pick Rouge.

Thank you all for replying.

This question is no longer relevant because AC got rid of the Jazz service on that route.

Now, the *only* option is Rouge.

Interestingly, some flights (those on A321) do not offer a J cabin because the planes are leased. :-(

Probably the WOW aircraft

Iceland's WOW air sells four A321ceo to Air Canada

No. Some frequencies are still operated by Sky Regional on the E175.

Here is the schedule for July. It's *all* Rouge. And, the A321 aircraft are all leased!

It looks like the Jazz flights are being phased out early May. After that, it's all Rouge.


YYZ-YQB schedule in July

Too bad, I am not happy about this and I am very unlikely to ever set foot in any of their aircraft purchased from WOW.

I had to adjust my travel plans several times to avoid these planes.

Only way to avoid, is to connect in YUL or YOW or fly WS or PD.
