In the release of its first-quarter results on May 4th, Air Canada announced that it would be sending 79 planes into early retirement. Boeing 767s, Airbus A319s, and Embraer 190s will exit the fleet. This will see a drawdown of most of the Air Canada Rouge fleet.
The Embraer 190s have already exited the fleet and have been retired. Meanwhile, the Boeing 767s and Airbus A319 retirements are being accelerated.

Effectively, Air Canada Rouge will be reduced to 18 aircraft...
