  1. When was her ticket booked ? What fare class was she in ?
  2. Interesting that the scenarios state "she", it should just say "they"....

When they landed, they cleared the runway on their own and CFR followed them to the gate. Passengers were held on the plane for close to 4 hours with no updates.

  10. Today my partner was on WG 511, was supposed to be a 737, but was "upgraded" to a Eastern 767 .... on their flight from YYZ - CUN they had to land at MSY due to a left engine failure.... any idea what WG will us to get the passengers on their way?
  11. ....needed, and the complexity creates danger. All of this for great cost yet very little gain. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want Albert Einstein to be my pilot. I want great flying professionals that are allowed to easily and quickly take control of a plane!

  20. Yes - hot water is my last major electrical appliance, it will be replaced before the fall! We are installing solar panels next month with the microfit program, should be interesting to see what our roof can generate!
  21. I live just north of Campbellford, wood stove (heat) gas dryer, gas stove, electricity. Hot water, and our bill for 2 is about $350 per month with a $175 delivery fee.... Crazy expensive.
