  2. I heard through the gossip mill that WestJet and its pilots have been given the results of their contract arbitration.
  3. I don't see any difference, although I have no idea whether Flair's claims have merit. As Malcolm has already pointed out the comparison here is ULCC (if Swoop really is one) to ULCC. Both Swoop and Flair charge bag fees and fees for seat selection if I'm not mistaken. I'm not sure if WestJet's whining to the competition authorities back in the day took AC's ancillary revenue into account either. Even then AC had fees for itinerary changes, cancellations, fees for some baggage and for certain on-board amenities.

  6. Where are you seeing the info on sales of the remaining 190s? I'm curious about where they're going and what the timetable for their disposal is.

    WOW coming to YVR

    Especially when one stop fares on full service carriers are already be pretty low.
  8. Subject to the availability of customs facilities and slot restrictions at a few airports I thought that Canadian and US carriers were free to operate any transborder services they chose. What is the hiccup here?

    Primera goes under

    They did fly to YYZ briefly this summer. It might have been from BHX, but I don't remember.
  10. Any pilot I have spoken to considers the Neo and even the first generation of the 320 series to be a far more sophisticated aircraft than the 737 MAX. Air Canada FAs all hate the 737 because of the galley/lav configuration that AC chose. It's brutal, but the 320 NEO with the space flex galley arrangement wouldn't be much better.
  11. If I remember correctly, Boeing took the 20 or so 190s that AC removed from its fleet some time ago. I don't recall there being any arrangement for them to take the remaining 25.

    Where is Bean ?

    I don't remember his predictions turning out to be accurate any more frequently than those of anybody else here.
  13. Good riddance. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/saudi-arabian-group-apologizes-for-posting-image-appearing-to-threaten-canada-with-9-11-style-attack-1.4775509
  14. Did TS previously self-handle at YUL?
