  1. http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/aar-to-acquire-two-mro-facilities-from-premier-aviation-300522042.html Airframe work moving north of the border
  2. Keep trying Zan Vetter THE POINT HERE IS CBC BIAS AGAINST AIR CANADA NOT HOW TO BOARD PAX!
  3. AC850 AND 851 DELAY DUE DENTS

    Looks like speed tape that has been left in place too long. Speed tape is in the SRM.
  4. AC850 AND 851 DELAY DUE DENTS

    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.
  5. AC850 AND 851 DELAY DUE DENTS

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

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

    All respondents were CBC employees
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. You're kidding? IMO, Mr Kelly is clearly presenting alternative facts to help a non US carrier build their international business connectivity through Canada
  11. 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.
  12. Delta Employee and Many $$$$

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

    Actually Dave, they are called parents.
  14. 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.
  15. AC Intends to Buy C Series

    The most important part of the deal, IMO. http://www.cbc.ca/news/business/bomb...cuts-1.3451335The 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.
