  1. You are correct on a lot of points there rudder, but take in to account that WestJet his bulging on some routes, while skinny on others. AC has the ability to gauge the aircraft to the demand - which I think is some of the methodology to Encore. We've been a one type fleet up unitl next month. For low pricing, every route ever started by WJ has been sale priced. I think the recent history proves that they quickly return to disciplined pricing / yield management. Only time will tell if Encore is a flop, but so far, those appear to be some fairly well thought out routes.
  2. That is pretty much what i've read, and almost verbatim to what my stock guy told me. My only issue is that the fleet has so much flexibility that no one can really figure out if it is status quo or an actual increase in ASM's. It's still just airline stock, so taking the down side is just part of the game.
  3. By 2018 it is min 100 737's, max135.
  4. It is easy to forget how clean our fleet is. I actually had to fly with an MEL yesterday... I even had to pull the big annoying book out.
  5. Dispatchers have it as an annual requirement. Its nuts that a controller with less than 12 years tenure has never had the chance.
  6. You have to love the media making the news. I can't think of a pilot who would ever 'ignore' a clearance. Way too many factors involved to make a judgment, yet the media still does it. They really need a code of ethics.
  7. Little bit more on this, source: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/story/2013/03/15/toronto-airport-runway-van.html Story: The Transportation Safety Board of Canada is launching an investigation after an Air Canada flight arriving at Toronto's Pearson International Airport ignored orders to abort its landing as a driverless van rolled onto the runway. The flight from Edmonton was landing shortly before midnight on Monday. Ewan Tasker, one of two investigators who conducted an initial probe, told CBC News that they consider the near-collision "quite serious." Though there are hundreds of s
  8. Too funny... I've seen your posts on here for a while and said 'I think I know that guy'. I was your FO at one time, we golfed, and both owned MG's. We're also on Facebook.
  9. Haven't heard or seen anything about Sky Regional. What are they doing wrong? ( other than poaching jets )
  10. Very well done... the 'Peak Frean Shortbread' makes it.
  11. I thought I was crazy that in past few years I wanted to trade the 737 performance (and cramped flight deck) for an A320 that I could stand up in and has a table in front of me... I was just getting older.
  12. Kmart is near Costco for cheap 'leave behind' beach stuff. Often the condos have a collection of chairs, coolers and umbrellas though. For breakfast, Kihei Caffe is a must at least once. You won't eat for the rest of the day. http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/37/411158/restaurant/Hawaii/Kihei-Wailea/Kihei-Caffe-Kihei
