  1. If you no show at a sporting event or music concert do you get your money back ? Nope Toronto maple Leafs are not obligated to refund your ticket based on you having a death in the family so why are the airlines ? If they can’t over sell the flight to protect against no shows then you can’t have your cake and eat it too.

    Westjet

    It will be the same as Porter in terms of not being a public company. we will no longer know if a WestJet is making a profit or losing it’s shirt. If Swoop continues to lose money, they can roll the ULC fares and rules into Westjet and offer Swoop fares on select flights just like Air Canada did with Tango fares. Encore being sold off I can definitely see that happening.
  3. This service was cancelled due to shortages of aircraft B737 max grounding. Air Canada will look at starting the service in October or November when the Max get’s the fix done.
  4. Since we’re all taking a guess and speculating, I will say Chorus aviation and they will lease the aircraft to Air Canada.

  6. It’t a good thing they have the A-220 to fall back on and push the A-320 neo
  7. AC Express has one flight a day to YUL and was down gauged from 78 seat Q-400 to 50 seat RJ about 7 weeks into service. Encore only has 78 seat Q-400 aircraft with a lot less connections in YUL for WJ then AC. Encore will most likely be flying at a 25% load factor on this route. Makes no sense. Just a reaction to last weeks Air Canada Rouge announcement of starting flights to Calgary.
  8. This was a shot back at Air Canada starting seasonal service to Calgary starting June 24th. Looks like a turf war has started in London Ontario between Westjet/Swoop. AirCanada
  9. Direct Thunderbay makes sense in the London market with the 3 hospitals London is a medical hotbed.
  10. Westjet is doing London Calgary Encore doing London Toronto feed and Swoop is starting new London Abbotsford London Edmonton and London Halifax service. Air Canada responds by starting London Calgary service and Air Canada Express doing London Toronto London Ottawa London Montreal. Should be interesting to see if Westjet will announce the return of the seasonal London Winnipeg and seasonal London Vancouver?
  11. Just looked at the Swoop route map and showing new yxu London to Abbotsford Halifax and Edmonton. Year round service.
  12. Heard Swoop will be in the news tomorrow with some new routes and yxu London Ontario will be added to the Swoop family. Hearing Winnipeg,Vancouver,Calgary flights but this will replace Westjet flying. So London yxu will need to fly Encore to YYZ to get Westjet service if my source is correct. See what happens tomorrow.
  13. All CRJ-200 aircraft at Air Canada express will transition to Jazz by the end of 2019. Air georgian lost beech1900 routes in October and that type of aircraft is being phased out of Air Canada express. So what aircraft will they fly ? This indeed looks like the end for Air Georgian flying with Air Canada express. Georgian has a poor track record for reliability and Air Canada looks like they are pulling the plug.
  14. Found the link and added to my first post on this topic.
