  1. Air Canada Announces the Acquisition of 26 Airbus A321neo Extra-Long Range Aircraft State-of-the-art, single-aisle aircraft offers greater comfort and range Projected fuel efficiency gain of up to 23%, yielding environmental benefits Order drives corporate priorities to elevate customer experience, expand network and lower costs MONTREAL, March 22, 2022 /CNW Telbec/ - Air Canada today announced it is acquiring 26 extra-long range (XLR) versions of the Airbus A321neo aircraft. The aircraft has sufficient range to serve all North American and select transatlantic markets, while offering customers added comfort and improving the carrier's fuel efficiency to advance its environmental programs. Deliveries are to begin in the first quarter of 2024 with the final aircraft to arrive in the first quarter of 2027. Fifteen of the aircraft will be leased from Air Lease Corporation, five will be leased from AerCap and six are being acquired under a purchase agreement with Airbus S.A.S. that includes purchase rights to acquire an additional 14 of the aircraft between 2027 and 2030. "Air Canada is committed to further strengthen its market-leading position, especially through investments in new technology. The acquisition of the state-of-the-art Airbus A321XLR is an important element of this strategy and will drive our core priorities of elevating the customer experience, advancing our environmental goals, network expansion and increasing our overall cost efficiency. This order also shows that Air Canada is emerging strongly from the pandemic and is ideally positioned to grow, compete and thrive in a reshaped global aviation industry," said Michael Rousseau, President and Chief Executive Officer of Air Canada. Air Canada's A321XLRs will accommodate 182 passengers in a configuration of 14 lie flat Air Canada Signature Class seats and 168 Economy Class seats. Among the aircraft's amenities, customers will enjoy next generation seatback entertainment, access to inflight Wifi and a spacious cabin design featuring generous overhead baggage storage bins. With a range of approximately 8,700 kilometres and an ability to fly up to 11 hours, the A321XLR can operate non-stop anywhere across North America and, pending Transport Canada approval for overseas operations, also fly transatlantic missions, bolstering the carrier's hubs and network. Air Canada is in the process of selecting an engine manufacturer for its A321XLR aircraft.
  2. yeah...like when the senior VP stole AC data and told the founder about it????
  3. wrong...it's the opinion of Katie Tellford that matters...
  4. Boeing settled with Air Canada in late 2019 or early 2020, according to Calin.
  5. It's a her...and you're spot on....random thoughts about airlines and Air Canada...I was surprised that the lost bag on her flight in 1996 from LHR wasn't mentioned...
  6. What a stupid article....why do they assume that the exposure happened on Air Force 1?? The fact that Hope Hicks was constantly in the presence of POTUS everyday and didn't wear a mask....it could have been transmitted anywhere.
  7. In 2018 VIA Rail received almost $400,000,000 in a Federal Government subsidy and still lost another $272,000,000..... Their customers pay no Station Improvement Fees, Rail Canada Navigation surcharges, no Rail Security fees.....
  8. That's an AC thing....WJ does not have the same requirement.
  9. I love all my paycheques...
  10. Even though the model is certified, each individual airframe has to be equipped and certified. You would have to buy service bulletins from Airbus that detail how the airframes have to be modified. Things like Long Range Radio systems (HF/Satcom), cargo fire suppression, rafts etc. It is quite expensive to upgrade an airframe to ETOPS rather than buy it from the factory already equipped.
  11. MICK TAYLOR In 1965, at age 16, Taylor went to see a John Mayall's Bluesbreakers (featuring Eric Clapton) performance at "The Hop" Woodhall Community Centre, Welwyn Garden City. Taylor said after seeing that Clapton hadn't appeared, but that his guitar had already been set up on the stage, he approached John Mayall during the interval to ask if he could play with them. Taylor mentioned that he was familiar with the band's repertoire, and after a moment of deliberation, Mayall agreed. Taylor amended, "I wasn't thinking that this was a great opportunity ... I just really wanted to get up on stage and play the guitar." Mick later joined the Rolling Stones, replacing Brian Jones, from 1969 to 1974, widely believed to be the golden era of the Stones and he played on 5 of their best albums.
