    It was also dark and late in the night, other possible contributing factors.

    Substandard is being kind. bordering on negligent. With some of the countries poorest weather at times this is unacceptable. How is the makeover of the Tim Hortons and the lobster shop coming along though ??? (SARCASM INTENDED). You are 100% correct on the "noise" from AC624, and now this. Two accidents (thankfully with no loss of life), possibly prevented with proper and operational equipment at the airport. Is it really going to take a mass casualty event for things to change ???? Won't be long before YVR has issues with no ILS 08L either, the fog is a coming . . . . . . . . . .
  3. For many other types, but I doubt it for the B787, especially with rising fuel prices (generally). Airlines love the 787, cant get there hands on them fast enough it seems.
  4. Just curious, how do you propose to "expedite" deliveries of the B787 ???? The deliveries list is pretty long and planned out a fair ways from what I have seen.
  5. Todays Westbound (in use currently) Track message and eastbound for later today, If you are interested. They have started to use the 30 mile (1/2 degree) separation more, Track "U" this evening is an example.

  6. Not sure I understand what you are getting at. Random routes are not a problem, and can be filed as needed. Most of the time flights to/from western Canada are on random routes. If you are near, or plan to be close to the NAT tracks you would be required to file one I am guessing The 787 can go to higher levels, but there are also alot of them flying around these days as well.
  7. That makes more sense. Can we start an irresponsible press thread now ??? LOL AS for the NAT Tracks, for the most part flights from Canada to Europe and vice versa rarely travel on the NAT Tracks. Most often random routes north of the tracks, but occasionally they will be on them westbound for at least part of the ocean crossing, before breaking off.
  8. From the release: "So we'll be flying these international routes between 7 o'clock in the morning and 10 o'clock in the morning"
  9. Do you think he, or anyone in the PR department read this before issuing it ??? Leaving Europe at between 07:00 - 10:00 (UK) is between midnight and 03:00 Alberta time. He would really have us believe that WJ had a choice of slots in CDG ???? or LGW ???? AC, who have a significant presence at LHR, make adjustments seasonally based on the slots allocated to them. This is part of the reason why some flights in and out, have different times throughout the year. Cmon Man. (NFL Reference)
  10. Kinda bush league no ???? Aren't these the types of things that are dealt with first, before you start selling tickets ??? Another in a long list of mistakes. Makes one wonder how they (WJ) plan to become a global carrier ???
  11. Nothing replaces an ILS, for many of the reasons mentioned above. There is one reason only as to why airports won't be installing ILS's in the future (your quote), and that is cost $$$. The old adage comes to mind, "you think safety is expensive, try having an accident"
  12. Or what if a few dollars were spent on a glideslope for the localizer on 05. This thread probably wouldn't be needed if that were the case. When are the airports, and local airport authorities going to be called out ??? Does Nav Canada get some blame here as well ??
  13. Multiple landing clearances are now issued with the expectation of no issues with the preceding aircraft. Further instructions (Go Around) are issued as necessary. Been happening in America for quite awhile.
  14. Wouldn't dropping the fee $5 encourage more people to check bags, and make the onboard experience better ?? Or is it to late now that the cat is out of the bag in regards to bag checked at the gate for free ????
  15. Wonder when EK will start service with the A380 or B777 to YXE, YQM, and YYB ????
