    Air Canada Buy-Out Pkg

    The only possible reason I can see for taking this plan is if you can find better health coverage elsewhere and I doubt that you can.

    Apparently........ not a "loop"

    Well it sure had me fooled.. which I can add to a long list of things..
  3. 3400 hours on the Herc and never tried this.
  4. Looks like it is official https://www.bnnbloomberg.ca/westjet-co-founder-commits-to-airbus-a220-order-1.1109252
  5. It will be interesting to hear the whole story on this. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-44832235
  6. This one tugs at the heart strings. https://newsinteractives.cbc.ca/longform/plane-crash-mystery-yukon-bc-alaska

    Westjet pilots strike vote

    Interesting CBC report on the negotiations. http://www.cbc.ca/news/business/westjet-alpa-meditors-fmcs-1.4676957
  8. Just a word of caution. I bought as many AC shares as I could in my ESOP. It did do one thing for me in that, after CCAA, it meant that I wouldn't be paying any capital gains tax for a long time. My point is that if the company doesn't end well neither does your ESOP.

    A350-1000

    https://www.ctvnews.ca/business/aircraft-designed-to-minimize-jetlag-set-to-make-maiden-commercial-flight-1.3814705 It will give the 787 a run for it's money but the 787 does have a big head start.
  10. I just can't let that go by. I did numerous NHL charters and never had a hint of a problem. The cabins were like they were after any other trip, and they treated the crew with respect.

    Tarmac accident at YYZ

    Too bad. I only met him that one time but he was a really nice unassuming guy.

    Tarmac accident at YYZ

    I ran into him while on vacation years ago in the Caribbean. Played tennis against him. It did not go well.
  14. https://www.ctvnews.ca/ It seems to be bad enough that the Westjet flight evacuated using the slides.

    Let it snow, let it snow
