  1. TS and SWG are in the same boat. There will be no summer operation. Aim for the fall. Warmer climates. Europe summer 2022.
  2. Nope. Raglan/Xstrata.
  3. US operating very close to a semblance of normal as far as passenger ops are concerned. Crowds are there. Masks are worn (mostly). Actually somewhat disconcerting to see since the virus is still there.
  4. And to qualify for a shot in the US you have to provide a credible US address (seasonal/second property/etc).
  5. By the time that many Canadians are getting either their second or first shot, some Americans will be lining up for their third shot (booster). Current efficacy endurance post second shot is just 6 months.
  6. The Liberal government and PHAC have no intention of making it easier to travel out of country this summer. And the CAN-US border will remain closed. Even some provinces are making inter-provincial travel difficult to impossible.
  7. The PKP offer is to take up shares, not to recapitalize. Yes, TRZ is in trouble unless government steps in either selectively (QC) or collectively (the Feds with industry targeted aid). A trip through the CCAA car wash remains a distinct possibility. There is no reason to bail out current TRZ shareholders. They bought a lottery ticket.
  8. My guess is that the current Federal government and PHAC want to keep everything buttoned up until Labour Day. No summer 2021 international travel, including US (especially the US). We will be lucky if someone from BC (with shots) will be allowed to puncture the Atlantic bubble. The pain for airlines will continue. Did anybody hear a rumour about sector specific aid for the airlines......?
  9. Yup. AC and Transat will be ramping up that schedule to Europe any day now..... not. Summer 2021 international travel remains a great big question mark. Only hope is vaccination passport. And that will have to be an approved protocol in both directions.
  10. Yes. And options are typically time limited. Expiry dates usually form part of the original purchase agreement.
  11. Options to purchase. Price usually predetermined. No firm purchase contract. No firm delivery date. No deposit required.
  12. Apparently the Liberal government has submitted the issue of industry specific airline industry aid to a grade 4 class in elementary school in Magog, QC and are awaiting their report.....
  13. What was the offer? AC is 63 hours to September. Is that offer not on the table at WJ?
  14. Meanwhile in the US..... ”When Congress passed and the president signed into law today the American Rescue Plan, airline workers secured a $14 billion extension of the Payroll Support Program (PSP) through September 30, 2021. Thanks to your commitment and engagement, our union has helped obtain a total of $63 billion in pandemic relief directly for aviation workers through this historic pro-labor, job-saving program.”
