    What am I missing here?  The flight diverted to "YUL due to weather at the destination.  I get that.  Why not just have the passengers informed that the flight will continue when the conditions improve and make arrangements as such.  Freezing rain in eastern and central Ontario is no laughing matter.  there is no way in hell I would take a bus down that stretch of the 401 in freezing rain.  How does this equate to 11 days wait?

    These LCC guys need to learn how to handle IROPS.  The response is pathetic.

    Weather is the one thing that is beyond airline control and does not demand compensation.  However the handling of the situation by the airline should get something for the passengers.



  2. 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. 

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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?

  6. 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.

  7. 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.
