Rouge to do domestic routes

Rouge will soon face the same reality Air Transat had to deal with:

Sunwing, will have 37 737s this winter on Southern destinations, but will melt to a dozen aircraft in the summer.
Westjet, uses its 737s on domestic routes Monday morning to Friday afternoon and concentrates on southern destinations from Friday evening to Monday morning when the business flying decreases.

What is Rouge going to do with its fleet of 319s in the summer when the Southern flying dies off ?
What is Rouge going to do wih its fleet of 767s in the winter when the seasonal summer flying to Europe dies off ?

Rouge is going to have to be very creative with its aircraft use. The use Rouge has been making of its 319s and 767s is seasonal work. They need to find off season work for both aircraft and crews. That may be challenging....
