  1. I'm not sure why the CUPE leadership at AC felt the need to remind AC to put the safety of its pax and crew first as if AC didn't already do that. I believe a protocol has been put in place for FAs who do not wish to operate on the MAX 8 to be assigned to alternate flying. Perhaps the press release was drafted before agreement on the protocol was reached.
  2. I'm not a fan of any U.S. politician at the moment, but no I wasn't referring to Pelosi. I was referring to the nutjob who spewed off about how Obama wasn't born in the USA, who brags about assaulting women etc etc etc, and who couldn't get his idiotic wall idea funded when his party had the Presidency, the Senate and the Congress but who thinks he'll somehow get it funded now. Gee.....wasn't Mexico going to pay for it anyway?? And he made sure the cameras were there when he proclaimed how "proud" he'd be to own the shutdown if it happened and how happy he'd be to carry the mantle for it.

  5. I heard through the gossip mill that WestJet and its pilots have been given the results of their contract arbitration.
  6. 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.

  9. 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.
  10. Especially when one stop fares on full service carriers are already be pretty low.
  11. 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?
  12. They did fly to YYZ briefly this summer. It might have been from BHX, but I don't remember.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
