    Looks like speed tape that has been left in place too long. Speed tape is in the SRM.

    May not be in the specific maintenance manual for that aircraft type but is an approved repair in the SRM for the aircraft. With inspection intervals and permanent repair terminating action limit.

    Standard procedure at AC, may not be at other operators like the one in the picture.
  4. Westjet bumps cycling team..

    I can't believe my eyes CBC reporting a negative story about WestJet mark this day in your calendars
  5. Air Canada ranked lower than United

    All respondents were CBC employees
  6. Another CBC hate Air Canada story. What a surprise with already over 1000 comments from the wing nuts. CBC has really become a third rate news agency.
  7. Air Canada's "Over Booking" problem.

    Another interesting topic with lots of discussion If it's not obvious to fellow members that the CBC has a hate on for AC then you're not reading, watching, or listening to the CBC. Seems several "OMG" stories over the last couple of weeks. Capacity planning software at big airlines is a real science that is seldom off the mark in it's assessment of the no show factor and seat spoilage. There will always be passengers that change their plans or cancel them outright, the pay much more for that service. As for cancellation insurance as an alternative, it does not cover such things as, "I think I'll cancel that meeting in city X because I have a new commitment elsewhere". IMO, even if there was a big flashing message on the screen when people purchased the tickets that said THIS FARE DOES ALLOW FOR SEAT SELECTION PRIOR 24 HOURS BEFORE DEPARTURE. YOU MAY BE DENIED BOARDING. Some people would still buy that ticket then scream and kick later as well as call the good old CBC.
  8. You're kidding? IMO, Mr Kelly is clearly presenting alternative facts to help a non US carrier build their international business connectivity through Canada
  9. 330 Heavy Mtc Fail

    Lots of speculation with very few facts. The savings on outsourced maintenance are significant in in labour cost, productivity, and aircraft downtime. AC did the 767 nose drop twice, once in YZ and once in UL.
  10. Delta Employee and Many $$$$

    Maybe it was a downpayment for the 20th EMB 190
  11. begging money for flights

    Actually Dave, they are called parents.
  12. AC Intends to Buy C Series

    Yes price is important, confidence in Bombardier is important, P&W pure power engines, etc. The deal has many interrelated parts. ACPPA is one hell of a dark cloud.
  13. AC Intends to Buy C Series

    The most important part of the deal, IMO. deal does, however, come with a pledge from Air Canada to do all heavy maintenance work related to the new planes at a facility in Quebec for at least 20 years. And as part of the agreement, the government of Quebec has agreed to drop a lawsuit against Air Canada that dates back to when the airline shut down its maintenance subsidiary known as Aveos, cutting 2,600 jobs in the process.Garneau added that Ottawa will now seek to clarify the law, known as the Air Canada Public Participation Act , which impacts similar litigations that may happen in the future.
  14. Question for an FA

    Conehead That may be your roll at Air Canada as an LAT/AME, but that is not the only product Air Canada markets. The main product after safe reliable travel is scheduled air travel. The passenger also pays for an on-board product such as seating, IFE, meals, etc. That is also how they differentiate their product from others. Do the current cabin modifications improve safety of the aircraft our enhance the on-board product? Most passenger expect safety from all airlines and I would suggest that make their choice of carrier based on many other factors.
  15. Sunwing in the News!

    Good old CBSA serving the public. If you arrive at YUL on a busy weekend afternoon with all of the International, Caribbean, and US flights, you'll wait for a long time to clear customs. 75% of the desks are usually not staffed and the line up can fill the entire hall and spill onto the stairs and down the hallway.
