The aircraft continues to Europe so hopefully it doesn't change The A310s are planned to be replaced with A321LR, the first of which will only arrive next spring.

The airline will dump 15% more seats into Europe this summer – and do so with widebody aircraft that executives concede are not ideal for the job. But starting next year, Transat will begin defending newly-acquired turf with an expanding fleet of efficient Airbus A321LRs. "Our first goal [is] ...
