  1. ATC delays are also beyond airline control.
  2. The amount airlines pay is not worth working as a front line employee as the general public has become too difficult unless you enjoy having an disagreement with 95% of all air travellers.
  3. Did you guys change the reservation system like Air Canada ? You recovered in 2 days as Air Canada still not not recovered after 30 days as customer service on phone lines is down right brutal. Aeroplan tickets can’t be touched at airports as customers must call Aeroplan. Customers also can’t do upgrade request at the airport.
  4. Please add some flying pigs along with the cows
  5. Just have to say that New Westjet commercial is so ridiculously stupid.
  6. This is an old news release or did swoop re release this news today. These London Ontario swoop routes were announced back on June 25th
  7. 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.

    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.
  9. 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.
  10. Since we’re all taking a guess and speculating, I will say Chorus aviation and they will lease the aircraft to Air Canada.
  11. https://www.thespec.com/news-story/8916062-low-cost-airline-swoop-unlawfully-charging-baggage-fees-complaint/
  12. It’t a good thing they have the A-220 to fall back on and push the A-320 neo
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. Direct Thunderbay makes sense in the London market with the 3 hospitals London is a medical hotbed.
  16. 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?
