  1. I have to say I am unimpressed by WestJet's approach to public relations in recent months. I hope this isn't just another disappointment but if all they are doing is giving refunds for refundable fares, then this should never have been a "news" item. They should have already done that months ago.
  2. Absolutely agree. My company's work makes cross-border travel a necessity. While I haven't engaged in any of it myself, my colleagues report seeing a high degree of compliance by our aviation colleagues and clients south of the border.
  3. As time passes the virus will (hopefully) lose the “novel” moniker and be better understood. I read today that people with “O” blood type who’ve required hospitalization have on average spent fewer days in hospital; in an ICU or on a ventilator than patients with other blood types, particularly “AB-“. They don’t know why, but it’s an aspect worth exploring further.
  4. No vaccine has been developed for the common cold because it doesn't kill or maim enough of the population to warrant it. The skeptic in me also feels that the pharmaceutical industry makes a ton of money on cold "medicines" which really only mask the symptoms and delay the length of suffering, thus helping them to sell even more of their products. Not much of a motivator for developing a vaccine.
  5. Got me hook, line and sinker with that one, Kip!
  6. It's interesting how opponents of the "nanny state" change their tune when the challenges get closer to home.
  7. Try this one on for size. Be sure you're sitting down. https://www.brewdog.com/uk/brewdog-vs-schorschbrau-strength-in-numbers
  8. You're fixing the wrong part!
  9. CADORS posted an update today which essentially matches the Air Tindi version of events. Most CADORS are initiated by an Airborne Occurrence Report (AOR) from Nav Canada. Controllers and FSS specialists are not flight safety experts. They will file the AOR based on what they believe they were told. Regarding the specifics of this report, the pilot did the right thing. If a C208 standby generator failure is caused by a failure of the drive shaft, the engine oil will migrate out through the broken shaft, eventually leading to oil starvation. We had the same thing happen when a Caravan
  10. Do you know what “low hanging fruit” is? They’re masters at harvesting it and Trump has provided an ample supply.
  11. It's common knowledge that the NDP has no money to fight an election. Their protestations will somewhat appease their base, but they have no teeth behind them.
  12. My sister in law is the sales manager at a dealership in the GTA. They can't get enough EVs to meet the demand.
  13. When it was originally proposed as the new 787, the 737NG was equipped with an EICAS. We know how that turned out.
