  1. SFO Incident

    I used to set up the ILS 28R in the secondary flight plan and get the pilot not flying to activate it when I no longer needed the rnav approach. In fact I always used the secondary flight plan and would often set it up with an alternative approach or runway. Used it more than once in YYZ !

    Sounds like an early April Fools.

    An embarrassment to the profession and I hope he is terminated. Kind of an anti-Sully.

    WestJet has been operating the 767 for over 6 months and it would appear that things are deteriorating rather than improving.

    "really a disgrace" C Bower (Canada) 5th June 2016 Verified Review | Flew London Gatwick to Toronto with WestJet Airlines. All I kept hearing was that everyones flight was delayed 5+ hours or cancelled all together. And lo and behold today our flight was cancelled from London to Toronto. But that's not the part that has now lost them two customers. There was absolutely no announcement and no information on why or how or what was happening. No one knew what was going on until finally after standing in line for almost 3 hours we were told there were no other flights to get us home until tomorrow at 5pm. The disorganization of this whole ordeal was pathetic to watch, with only one staff member at the counter to help the 100+ who were now displaced because of a cancelled flight, it was really a disgrace to see this from a Canadian company. I will be flying with other airlines from now on.
  12. Or perhaps she was bullying the American Airlines agent and he had seen or heard enough. There is a lot more to this story.
  13. Air Canada Q1 earnings

    Air Canada: 1.6%. ???? I think you should check your info again. Makes me wonder about your other numbers.
  14. WestJet 767 Overhead Bins

    I am a lot more concerned with lengthy delays. ''A few extra days '' just does not work for everybody.
  15. Does the USAF conduct a flight control check before each flight or is it not required on the C-130?
