  1. The more things change, the more they stay the same eh ??? I remember those books, probably still have one somewhere.
  2. Don't forget the call to CBC to have them waiting at the airport after arrival to cover the whole experience.
  3. Moderna vaccine is OK at room temp.
  4. And as it turns out, those working in the aviation sector.
  5. Why wouldn't the aircraft in storage not be utilized ???? In many cases these are brand new aircraft that were not even delivered yet ??
  6. Thanks for stepping up Seeker. Appreciate the efforts of both the old and new regimes !! Stay safe everyone !!
  7. you give the left far to much credit. Not a chance.
  8. I don't think AC has left town as you put it, just can't make a viable go of it right now. The AC website has for most of the last 6 months shown a return to both FRA and LHR on a tri-weekly service. https://www.aircanada.com/uk/en/aco/home/book/travel-news-and-updates/2020/route-updates.html Demand obviously hasn't been there so it gets pushed back. Planned again for December, will see what happens.
  9. I was still laughing at the 180 seats on a B737 part ?
  10. Really ?? Such a nice new facility, and then they throw this garbage into a press release ?? Who exactly is that supposed to impress ?? What purpose is being served here ??
  11. What a waste of bandwith. Most people don't give rat's A$$ who did what first. Right or wrong, they view both of the airlines in Canada a crooks for not refunding from the get go. This not a good look for either . . . . .
  12. Are you suggesting going to the airport in FRA, ZRH, LHR as examples, and have a Covid test, then be allowed to fly 48 hours later ??? It may mathematically reduce the chances, but it is not very practical. In some places, it is taking between 1.5-3 hours to complete testing after arrival. That has got to improve before things turnaround.
  13. LOL I did, what's the scuttlebut ??? Can we at least start a good rumour ???
  14. So what's the big announcement ??
  15. Did Transport Canada hire somebody from CBC to write the CADORS reports for them ??
  16. In the world of statistics, does that not make it statistically irrelevant ??
  17. I don't think that is cynical at all. At the moment, there isn't a more plausible explanation for the entire industry to be all but left for dead in this country.
  18. Truer words were never spoken !!! Couldn't agree more. Canada is finished with this current government.
  19. How is MSFS2020 ??? Clips leading up to it were quite spectacular ??? What sort of computer are you running it on ?? How big a screen ?? Thanks
  20. In the twitterverse, there are reports that WJ has applied for slots at LHR. Another great WJ experiment (LGW) hits the skids I guess. All the fan fare and gushing over LGW, and how they were going to save everybody a whole lot of bother and expense. Kinda reminds me of YHM vs YYZ.
  21. I don't understand why they removed the name down the side, but left the tail in WJ colors. If they were going to go that far, why not paint the tail black or something ??
  22. Canada collects zero ????? Your posts are ridiculous at the best of times, this may be over the top.How on earth do you think Alberta was able to send billions of dollars in transfer payments ?? The great big green money tree ??? $240B in 11 years. https://nationalpost.com/news/canada/how-alberta-pays-quebecs-bills-four-charts-that-show-alberta-picks-up-the-tab Go outside and get some fresh air, you need to get away from your keyboard.
