  1. The US look like a$$ clowns. Started under Trump. Still going on.
  2. Aggregate hiring forecast for 2022 for AA/DL/UA/SW/JB/FedEx/UPS is 8750 pilots. Some large US regional carriers are losing 200+ pilots per month.
  3. You are almost better off with a POSITIVE test result in hand. No further negative PCR test required for entry to Canada for days 10-180 following the positive test result date (effective January 15. Prior to that was 14-180 days).
  4. AC should have used the opportunity to upgrade the flight deck the same way that FedEx does on the converted B757 freighters.
  5. AC is limited by slots at YTZ. With previous demand level it made sense to use 100% for YUL as there would not be adequate slots for a decent timetable to YOW (pre-COVID). Now with COVID affected reduced demand for business travel in the eastern triangle, AC can allocate some YUL slots to YOW. AC would probably also like to increase slots. Will be interesting to see where that goes if Porter is not using all of their allocated slots.
  6. My guess is that Jazz will be a significant source of experienced E-jet pilots.
  7. More often is the case of correct V speeds set but incorrect flap setting for take-off.
  8. That method of OAL J/S registration is currently suspended. You have to call to list for a flight.
  9. YYZ. Also known as GTAA… Go To Another Airport Canada just seems too worried about offending anyone. Don’t have your shots? Stand here. That simple.
  10. https://aircanada.mediaroom.com/2021-07-19-Air-Canada-Ready-to-Reconnect-Canada-and-U-S-Travel-With-Up-to-220-Daily-Flights-Between-the-Two-Countries
  11. According to MD, Porter sourced equity from existing shareholders and will make the EMB purchase transaction a sale leaseback.
  12. WestJet announcements no longer move the needle in the CDN airline industry. Nor do Flair announcements. Nor Porter announcements.
  13. https://www.flyporter.com/en-ca/about-us/news-details?title=Porter+Airlines+expanding+service+across+North+America+by+acquiring+up+to+80+Embraer+E195-E2s+2021+07
  14. Can’t wait to hear what realitychex has to say about this…..
  15. Unless Delta or United or American swoop in with an order for 100+ CRJ airframes, I cannot see how Mitsubishi would justify the expense of setting up production. The analysis seems to be driven by the fact that Mitsubishi cannot afford further development costs for the MRJ leaving the 76 seat regional jet space to the exclusive purview of EMB.
