  1. Don't think that they will get anywhere near the same deal AC got, unless of course they are buying 220's.....
  2. Had a chance to buy one last week..... https://www.barrett-jackson.com/Events/Event/Details/1954-TAYLOR-AEROCAR-236076
  3. Westjet's policy https://globalnews.ca/news/4530517/westjet-cannabis-staff-policy/
  4. Not sure why this was moved here, the topic was regulations regarding pilots and flying.
  5. “Air Canada is allowed to make those decisions,” Transport Minsiter Marc Garneau said Friday. “They could be challenged, but they’re allowed to make them. “From our point of view, from a safety point of view, we already have measures in place to ensure that the crew of an airplane — and I’m not just talking about the pilots; also the flight attendants — are fit to fly.” Not to worry, Marc and the boy's have it covered?

  7. This is what she looked like in her glory.....
  8. Maybe you Kip....... http://www.forbes.com/sites/lorenthompson/2015/11/20/killing-isis-five-reasons-american-boots-on-the-ground-will-backfire/
  9. http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/local/NewLeaf-Travel-sets-up-head-office-at-Winnipeg-airport-306495001.html Jim Young has learned from the lessons of Greyhound Air, Canada 3000 and JetsGo and plans to be here for the long run.The CEO of Canadas newest airline, New Leaf Travel Company, unveiled his initial plans this morning at the James Richardson International Airport.
  10. For you Scotsman and golfers......best one ever. (Caution...lots of f-bombs)
  11. FIR and terminal boundaries and freq's are on the LE, HE and terminal charts.
  12. https://www.navcanada.ca/en/products-and-services/Pages/service-charges.aspx You can use the fee calculator to plug in your route etc and see what the fee's are.
  13. Not sure why some people are defending these guy's, they were negligent in their duties, end of story. Sorry but that means there will be consequences. Union can spout all they want but sticking up for these guy's belittles the rest of the employees who do their jobs professionally and with pride, which when I last looked was the norm..........
  14. You either descend below radar coverage, fly out of radar range, turn off your transponder or it fails.
  15. For crying out loud people........we have Aeroplan , we have Airmiles, we have WestJet Rewards, if you can't give something back to your customers even if it gets you some PR then why do we even bother to advertise or offer the programs !!?? This was an excellent promotion, well done, end of story. Is anyone trying to say that any company in the aviation world doesn't donate tickets, money, manpower to help those in need? Come on...........Merry Xmas to all and I really don't care what color Santa wears off hours but on the 25th it better be red!!!!
  16. The YWG to PHX flight this time of year is 2hrs to YYC, 21/2hr wait then 3hrs to PHX. The trip home is 11/2 to LAX. 4hr wait then 21/2 to YWG, so the drive is actually less of an inconvienence. The winter direct flights are usually worth the extra money as you don't have to worry about the highways closing and if you book far enough in advance there might only be a couple hundred difference. My "stuff happens" comment was not meant to say I was content with amount of failures/shutdowns they are experiencing, I would hope the FAA is keeping an eye on them, but to show that other airlines have similar problems which I hope TC is keeping an eye on.
  17. Yikes! Jazz has had 10 shutdowns in the last year and a half, Air Canada eight in the last four years, WestJet five in the last five years. Stuff happens.
  18. Alligiant GFK to AZA Trip Price Flights $382.84 Debit Card Discount $ -16.00 Taxes, carrier charges & gov't fees $111.12 Total Debit Card Price $477.96 Total Credit Card Price $493.96 1 bag $50.00 Gas to drive to GFK $50.00 $593.96 WestJet YWG to AZA 2 adult $1,076.00 Air transportation charges: $30.00 Taxes, fees and charges: $270.78 Total and taxes: $1,376.78 Almost a $800.00 difference. Used them many times, no problems, good flights, no freebees. Every airline has a hiccup or two but for $800.00 an extra 10 mins of driving (20 if you are going to Scottsdale) is not a big deal.
  19. http://www.landmarkaviation.com/aircargo.aspx Encore fleet looks smaller than I thought........
  20. I concur, not the place or the time........
  21. Kip, the new team members have to be trained on the "team"bird now as the tudor is only used for the Snowbirds. They have low time on it and are doing formation aeros....yikes!!!
  22. HOW TO SAVE THE AIRLINES. Dump the male flight attendants, no one wanted them in the first place. Replace all the female flight attendants with good-looking strippers! What the hell, they don't even serve food anymore, so what's the loss? The strippers would at least triple the alcohol sales and get a 'party atmosphere' going in the cabin. And, of course, every businessman in this country would start flying again, hoping to see naked women. Because of the tips, female flight attendants wouldn't need a salary, thus saving even more money. I suspect tips would be so good that we could charge the women for working the plane and have them kick back 20% of the tips, including lap dances and 'special services.' Muslims would be afraid to get on the planes for fear of seeing naked women. Hijackings would come to a screeching halt, and the airline industry would see record revenues. This is definitely a win-win situation if we handle it right, a golden opportunity to turn a liability into an asset. Why didn't Bush think of this? Why do I still have to do everything myself? Sincerely, Bill Clinton.
  23. Hey, I got an idea, why not have the head of each union form a coalilition and run the airline. From what I understand from all the posts is that all the managers are total idiots and should just quit and get jobs elsewhere because the union leaders are such business whiz's, why with all their experience in running big corporations, everything will be just peachy, right.
