  1. 1.13 million deaths worldwide so far. Who cares. People are losing their jobs. F ing governments.
  2. I guess Sunshine and cheap beer is more important than vulnerable people's lives to some of us. If you travel to a Covid hot spot needlessly, please do stay there until it is over. ??
  3. How about an open book policy. Anyone that wants a look is welcome. Ha Ha , as if.
  4. I still think Westjet has the worst livery in Canada. Hope to see more of the new ones. ?
  5. We need to take the word "Authority " out of their name. Why do we have airport "Authorities ", and Police Services. They should be called "Airport Service Providers ". Maybe deflate their heads a little.
  6. Essential with a shoot pile of seniority ???
  7. Notice that the wing is on top where it is supposed to be ??
  8. I think you are right Kip ?? Lots of room for a huge happy face on the tail of a Dash 8 ?
  9. I have not given up on Boeing "yet". Still think the rest of the world better quit pissing on their heads lest they come up with something really amazing. Remember what happened to Boeing with their 247. Douglass brought out the DC 2, and then the DC 3. Any new design Boeing comes up with would be 10 years ahead of even the A220. Careful what you ask for Airbus ? Until I read Don's comment above, I put no credence in the theory that Douglass ruined Boeing. Really? Boeing is a big boy. Now I am starting to wonder.
  10. Many years ago people did not get stranded. (Not as much anyway) Most aircraft flew half full. If Air Canada (including its connectors) canceled a flight, passengers were protected on C.P. air. And vise versa. The main concern was the passenger. And getting them where they needed to be. We flew all night if needed. Petty battles between companies came after customer service. As soon as a flight was canceled we helped each other out. Both ways. The behavior of Air Canada towards Air B.C. was infantile. A dark time in aviation history. Is it being repeated at Westjet and Poop ?
  11. Oddly enough Mr.H , I remember that happening. Three or four hundred other students and I looking on in awe. One hundred and fifty to two hundred young ladies in tears. Even to this day people still ask "Where is Mr. Hudson?"
  12. Isn't it funny that now Westjet and Poop are the same company, but when passengers were stranded, they had nothing to do with each other ?
  13. Hopefully Young people will open their eyes to the concept of a 15 year apprenticeship that restarts if you change employers. Aircraft maintenance is the only trade I know of that would expect this to be acceptable. I hope Young people vote with their feet. They may be about to be given a golden opportunity to do so.
  14. Right now I would be willing to bet that Boeing wishes they had Airbus's problems ?
  15. So 66 % of the population is obese, and 60 % of the people in intensive care are obese. ?.., So where is the story? The point is, modifying your BMI doesn't change your chances of ending up in the hospital. (According to those statistics). Although changing your gender to female seems like a good idea. Sensational journalism. I guess it works if you don't read the whole article .
  16. "Plenty of money " When, Where? I have never seen it. Been here 30 years, and the only reason I can see to do it ... maybe...to launder cash ? ?
  17. Remember. There's no money in running an airline. The real money is in bankrupting them, and building new ones. The snakes in the grass are licking their chops. Pensions to pilfer, senioritis and holidays to eliminate......
  18. I think the technical term is..... "Financial Combustion "
  19. C-GJXE s/n 55076 delivered February 14 ? C-GJXN s/n 55078 and C-GJXV s/n 55079 are both in flight testing. Looking like A220S are being built.
  20. Notice the batteries have expanded the nose as the gear went through.
  21. There is severe structural damage. There is no way that gear can be where it is. The forward pressure bulkhead has been ripped out of the airplane.
