    Skytrax best airlines

    Isn't Swoop usually referred to as ultra low cost (a ULCC)?

    AC YYZ-YVR Profitable!

    Perhaps so, but the data referenced by the writer cites revenue only. There's nothing in the data to suggest that the route is the world's 9th most profitable. The "journalist" leaps to that conclusion on his own.

    The writer of the article doesn't seem to know that revenue and profit are different things.

    AirTransat Expands to Europe

    I don't notice any difference, and I don't find that many people do.

    Agree. It's working well enough for the U.S. carriers, so far at least.

    WestJet's new look and 787 preview

    Isn’t that exactly what WestJet is doing both with its mainline product and with Swoop?

    WestJet's new look and 787 preview

    Network carriers seem to have figured out how to compete effectively with carriers like Southwest and WestJet (before it changed so much). A former poster here was always crowing about how WestJet's new strategies would see it carrying a few additional guests on each flight, and that the few extra seats sold would be "pure gravy" or something like that. He ridiculed any suggestion that the added complexity might not end up being of benefit to WestJet's bottom line. The market so far seems to disagree with him.

    Nice livery.
  12. What is the latest on who will operate the C Series? Rouge pilots, or is that yet to be determined?

    And there may be a great deal more natural evolution to come. The pilots are only the first employee group to unionize.

    Wow Airlines ex YYZ and YUL

    Sounds like competition for existing carriers’ PY products. It’s hard to imagine this product winning J class customers away from the full service carriers although WOW’s CEO seems to think it will.
