  1. Westjet knows the Air Canada plan retains aircraft and employees in Quebec and will appeal to the Provincial and Federal Governments so they can't have much hope for their protest. I suppose they're really just hoping to get some of AC's European airport slots?
  2. But I bet there isn't a man alive who hasn't gotten out of a nasty situation by saying "Huh. Will you look at that? My watch must be slow."
  3. It is a good article. " Bill Gates told CNBC in November that “over 50 per cent of business travel and over 30 per cent of days in the office would go away” — a prediction dismissed by Ed Bastian, chief executive of Delta Air Lines, who countered that the Microsoft founder was not qualified to forecast the future of corporate travel."

  8. True - I forgot about those. These newer boats are scary fast. I prefer the comfort of the Yacht though.
  9. They did. Pretty sweet. https://www.yachtcharterfleet.com/luxury-charter-yacht-46445/taconite.htm
  10. I expect that whatever mutation they have over there is already here so it's only a matter of time before we exceed the various provincial health systems ICU capacity. The lockdowns can't come quick or soon enough. Anybody needing surgery in the next little while will be SOL otherwise.
  11. The aerodynamics look interesting. Wing is far back, V tail instead of rudder, engine inlet, curved fuselage. Looks like a lot of work from the advanced design group didn't go to waste.
  12. "Favourite" pet peeves? Is that like a near miss?
  13. Yep. That captures the mood in our house perfectly.
