  1. Obviously I realize it was an official public release, hence my question. Why would they press release something only pertinent to Air Canada employees, and really just a subset of people working remotely?
  2. Curious why you would press release an internal workplace policy.
  3. Can you really say you turned 15 if you abandon operations for more than a year?
  4. Why this wasn't done from the get go is mind boggling. Way too much YUL capacity which I'm sure was losing money especially with the exorbitant fees at YTZ.
  5. Burbank announced last week already dropped, delayed?
  6. And I'd guess the inflation adjusted cost of that ticket would get you a much nicer experience today.
  7. Yeah, not like there has been constant changes in regional demand or government rules and regulations. Quite easy to determine demand for the last year and a half.
  8. 1x per week non-stop to both. 1 stop through YVR the other days of the week.
  9. Just because you didn't see it doesn't mean there wasn't opposition. And let's not kid ourselves, if the tables were turned you know AC would have issues as well. Every carrier has issues with things their competitors do.
  10. YYC-LGW is paused again. OGG/HNL from YYC both on the 787 start in a little over a week.
  11. Nope, the number I've seen is north of 7%, and the first piece of backup I found online was pretty much the same. https://www.iata.org/contentassets/3b5a413027704ce08976fe1890fb43e2/acmg_highlights.pdf
  12. Much higher than 1¢, more like 7¢ - absolutely not an insignificant number.
  13. Yeah, me, as soon the quarantine requirements are over. 10 years ?
  14. I'm surprised AC is only cutting 50% of capacity. Who is going to be flying in the next 30 days? That's still a lot of seats flying around.
  15. No slots in AMS, plus future TALT JV partner already serves AMSYYC. FCO could also be a JV partner hub if both Alitalia and WestJet are part of it.
  16. Looking back to 2008 and it's been at least daily year round that whole time. WS has less than daily service in the winter, so maybe it's more WS service you'd like to offset the AC 'outrageous return airfares'?
  17. Am I missing something? AC has flown YYZ-YYG year round forever.
  18. Picking up connections after the morning bank in YYC, then bringing them back in before the YYC bank in the morning.
  19. It's to pick up connections on both sides. From another forum: "The OGG schedule is pretty typical for longer mainland-OGG flights, actually. DFW/PHX/ORD-OGG all run on similar schedules as do lots of inland-HNL flights."
  20. Saw some route cancels today I'm assuming are associated - YQQYYC, SEAYYC, YEGYYJ, YWGYQT, and YWGYXE. https://globalnews.ca/news/4998235/air-canada-cuts-direct-flights-from-winnipeg-to-thunder-bay-saskatoon/
  21. The excess returns are being used at WS to back fill the owned aircraft being transferred to Swoop to ensure there is still fleet growth at WS.
  22. The data I have shows the fuel burn per seat on a MAX 8 is lower than on a CS300, so an increase in fuel will actually help a MAX 8, let alone a -9 or -10, unless again the aircraft is being used for lower demand route and a MAX is not the right aircraft for the mission in the first place. Agree though, vs. older equipment it will provide an advantage. I saw a guy speak back in the summer of 2014 that predicted the drop in oil when it was sitting at around $100. Saw him again this past summer and he thinks we'll hit $90-$100 again due to the shortage of investment in oil overall, but long term we'll settle in around $60 with the US (and Middle East) ability to turn on the taps and then increase advancements in battery technology potentially tampering demand. Won't claim to be an expert in any of these areas, but it seemed quite reasonable to me.
  23. I don't think you can consider these interchangeable narrow-body aircraft. I think the C-Series will be a great aircraft and there are many routes it will do well on, but that 'old technology' will hold a seat cost advantage the C-Series will not be able to match making it the superior aircraft on many routes.
  24. Was it not stealing existing flying or not shrinking the 737 fleet? I think a basic premise of Encore was the opening of new opportunities and the right sizing of aircraft on some routes.
