  1. https://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/air-transat-and-westjet-to-cooperate-on-transatlantic-codeshare-872565139.html
  2. "When you look at how the airlines behaved with people who wanted a refund, I think there is room to attract sympathy. We do not intend to replace anyone, but to carve out a niche position. The reason we have come to the Charter of Passenger Rights is that, somewhere, the companies have taken passengers for granted. » "Transat's strategy, I never understood it," says Prud'Homme. Pretty arrogant statements from the guy whose company was found potentially violating the rules of the federal subsidy... https://www.journaldemontreal.com/2020/05/14/une-entreprise-a-tente-de-profiter-des-failles-de-la-pcu
  3. Maybe more than you think if hotels have to operate at less than full capacity because of social distantiation, amongst other considerations..
  4. That article could be seen as a “subtle” message to whoever has to officially weigh-in on the AC/Transat transaction... just sayin’...
  5. What many here seem to be forgetting is that the ONLY reason why Rouge was brought in was to drive AT to the ground. In fact, when you read the competition bureau’s report, most of the instances where there is duplication of routes is where Rouge introduced service specifically to give AT a ride for their money. When someone mentions Transat getting “lifelines”, they seem to forget how many lifelines AC has been given over their existence, all but to end up starting a leisure carrier whose sole purpose was to kill the competition. Amusingly, after about 6 years of Rouge operation and Transat losing money because of Rouge’s aggressive program, AC, for whatever reasons, finally realizes that the Transat brand is worth acquiring, because if they don’t someone out west might be interested. Now, because of this pandemic, which affects everyone, but especially this business, there might be a chance that the deal falls through and that, what seemed like a chance for Transat to carry on doing business in whatever shape or form AC would have decided after trying to get rid of us for so long, ends up being the end of it all for us at AT.
  6. We’ll just keep and fly our 330s instead...
  7. Sorry for the french article, I’m sure english media will pick it up soon enough. https://www.lapresse.ca/affaires/entreprises/201908/23/01-5238422-les-actionnaires-de-transat-approuvent-la-vente-a-air-canada.php Transat shareholders approve at 95%
  8. That’s Indonesia for you...
  9. Works very well in most european countries.

  11. Exactly! Some 330s being replaced but overall more planes with more seats that a 737, so all-in-all it will be an increase in capacity and frequency throughout the network, especially Europe.
  12. Just came out this morning... https://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/changes-to-air-transats-fleet---carrier-signs-agreement-to-lease-seven-new-airbus-a321neos-686665781.html
  13. Westjet have been flying the ‘37 to GLA and DUB for a while now and they’ve just started CDG with a MAX. I would argue that the 321 will be much more comfortable than the 737, especially those window seats... As an FYI, the configuration on those 321NEO-LRs will be 12 Club/187 ECO.
  14. Funny, I didn’t hear anyone shout....
