  1. I take this that you mean that we may soon be a new competitor for Cargojet?
  2. Cargojet down $32 this morning...
  3. Markets are happy. Shares up 25% this morning.
  4. How many of those travellers won't be returning any time soon and hope that the 2 week quarantine will be gone when they return next spring? I would hazard a guess that it's quite a few.
  5. All but a few have the "lsd" designation next to them according to this site. https://www.planespotters.net/airline/Air-Transat

  8. Does an insurance company ever have a good chance of paying out?
  9. https://tc.canada.ca/en/initiatives/covid-19-measures-updates-guidance-tc/guidance-material-air-operators I find it interesting that TC allows for the removal of masks when 2 metre separation can be maintained. They also mention that "Air operators should exercise discretion to allow for eating, drinking, taking oral medications and changing of the mask or face covering, for individuals with special circumstances as warranted (e.g., fussy older child, special needs, etc.)" which should perhaps have taken place here. "Travellers should generally expect to wear their face coverings for

  11. Refusing? Not yet, for me. Lots of people lowering them, only to be told to put them back. A few disgruntled types, but no refusals yet. It's funny how when you ask someone a question, like, would you like a drink and they lower their mask to reply. Or they lower their mask to sneeze because it will soil the mask.
  12. Read this Mike Rowe post on Facebook today. Makes a lot of sense. https://www.facebook.com/TheRealMikeRowe/posts/3445993122077473?__tn__=K-R Mike. In a recent post, you said you’ve been to Tennessee and Georgia, giving speeches and filming for your new show. Before that, you were on the road shooting for Dirty Jobs. Is it really so important to film a television show in the midst of pandemic? Is it responsible of you to encourage this kind of behavior when infection rates are spiking? Don’t you watch the news? More and more cases every day – aren’t you concerned? Darlene G
  13. 28 flights? Seriously? Newsworthy? Anyone have the stats for AC or any other Canadian carrier?
  14. I've worked several full or almost full flights over the last week. Not one complaint from customers about the decrease in personal space.
  15. https://hotelandtourismonline.com/2020/06/30/50-of-lufthansa-fleet-takes-back-to-the-air/ 50% OF LUFTHANSA FLEET TAKES BACK TO THE AIR 30/06/2020 0 Comments Lufthansa Group airlines have published flight schedules through the end of October, with 380 aircraft to be back in service by October. The group’s new summer timetable was implemented in booking systems on 29 June, valid until 24 October, the end of the normal summer season, amounting to over 40% of their originally planned flight programme. By the end of October, over 90% of all originally planned shor
  16. US authorities are pulling back on their threat to block Chinese airlines from flying into the US after the Chinese government changed its own policy. https://edition.cnn.com/2020/06/05/politics/us-china-flights/index.html
  17. No. Just random guys at different points along the river. They weren't "with" anybody to protect. Just seemed odd to be fishing by yourself with a surgical mask on.
  18. Just walked by a bunch of guys fishing along a river, all by themselves here and there and all wearing masks. Are they afraid of getting the virus from, or giving it to, the fish?
  19. 73 retirements and 10 resignations.
  20. 1998 hires were the first to go.
  21. How do these people know they caught the virus "during one visit to a grocery store" or "on a layover while trying to do the right thing" when it takes days or weeks to show any symptoms? Could it not have been, well, anywhere?

Most other teams have had to start with small clinical trials of a few hundred participants to demonstrate safety. But scientists at the university’s Jenner I
