  1. The deal is dead. Transat will be the first in Canada to officially disappear. AC can not be held to a deal like this in these Covid times.
  2. The Canadian government has not provided one red cent to Canada's airlines so unlike almost every other country on the planet they/we have to fend for ourselves. There's the cynic in me that thinks that the liberals would love to see all the airlines fail so they can get slightly closer to their unrealistic, unattainable carbon emission targets
  3. Haven't seen a WestJet hater/troll like you in a while. What's your major bitch?
  4. Oh please, trans-Atlantic travel has taken a dump and slots are probably now available. Why wouldn't they do that? FWIW, pre Covid the LGW numbers were very good, actually better than expected by a significant margin I had heard.
  5. Strategic Air Command great movie! Has some cool B-47 scenes in the last half.
  6. What troubles me with this government is I think they'd happily let AC, WJ and everyone else die so they can take green credit for it. I've never been so nauseated in my whole life with these crooks in power.
  7. It was clear to me. Jack, I too hope you stick around.
  8. Opinion: A Five-Part Strategy For Boeing CEO Dave Calhoun Kevin Michaels July 16, 2020 Boeing CEO Dave Calhoun Credit: Boeing What a difference a year makes. In March 2019, Boeing was on top of the world, boasting an eight-year order backlog and a market capitalization of $240 billion. Today, it is at a structural disadvantage versus Airbus, with its share price diminished as it grapples with the worst crisis of the jetliner era. Some observers are beginning to doubt that it can hold up its end of the airliner production duopoly. CEO Dav
  9. True for sure! I did a three week cycling trip there last October and the cops are everywhere and overtly aggressive to any perceived crime. Me and my buddy got accosted for not wearing helmets on the Bruce highway. Trucks ripping along at 120 KMH right beside us and we could barely manage to do 15 KMH in a headwind! I'm not the guy taking the pic, I'm the other one! We did manage to get the helmets back on but she wasn't buying it.
  10. Thanks Mitch, I remember that well! When you posted that it just sent a chill down my spine like few things ever have. I've wondered in the past how I would have handled that and I doubt it would been as well as you did. Great to see you here again!
  11. For the life of me I can not fathom why they would use the 737-400, there are literally hundreds of used 737NG's and A320's out there that are close to free. There is also a very limited amount of time left that Boeing will support the 737 classic series.
  12. Two of AC's 772's showed up in Marana today.

  14. How can they do that on an aircraft without a valid C of A?
