  1. Is this the Swoop effect chasing Flair out of yhm?
  2. Funny how all the execs use the same playbook.
  3. John. I don't think you realize how untied our Westjet pilot group is. You can't scab 100 flights per day can you? Good luck with that.
  4. Sorry to put the topic back on topic, but when I read this article this morning I felt much the same as Anonymous. Mostly that this piece of stupidity actually made the news is truly what's mind boggling here. We are expected to believe that the engine was held together by a piece of speed tape covering a small access panel on the engine cowl. I don't blame the selfie-obsessed bimbo, I blame the reporter.
  5. Conehead, I thought the same thing until I saw the photo showing the other side of the plane. It's extremely smoky on the far side so likely they checked their windows and the port side looked better. IMO they shouldn't have used either front exit, but in the heat of the moment it's a tough fast choice to make
  6. I don't think you can call it russian roulette if the gun is fully loaded! haha!
  7. obviously there's a structural reason why they'd hang weights in lieu of engines... anyone know why specifically?
  8. All that matters, people, is that the terminal is nice and new, and artsy.
  9. perhaps this is a sign that engineering for max thrust produced for minimum fuel burned might be reaching a limit? i'm sure there's a fancy graph out there somewhere with an exponential curve drawn on it...
  10. No doubt the IT department will be busy the next little while correcting this little redundancy problem.
  11. I think some out of touch CEO with too much available credit will take the bait eventually... Deluce just needs to get desperate enough to price it so someone finally takes the bait.
  12. "What Weather Means Weather is basically the way the atmosphere is behaving, mainly with respect to its effects upon life and human activities. The difference between weather and climate is that weather consists of the short-term (minutes to months) changes in the atmosphere. Most people think of weather in terms of temperature, humidity, precipitation, cloudiness, brightness, visibility, wind, and atmospheric pressure, as in high and low pressure. In most places, weather can change from minute-to-minute, hour-to-hour, day-to-day, and season-to-season. Climate, however, is the average o
  13. Can someone please look up the difference between 'climate' and 'weather'? Thanks. I had the pleasure only yesterday to help out with a science experiment in my daughter's class(grade 2). With about 5 kids per group, and only one group at a time, they were shown about 20 small objects(eraser, paperclip, styrofoam, cork, sponge, piece of cloth, short length of string, piece of wax crayon, etc) and were told to make a prediction whether each object would float in water or sink. Each child had their own chart to keep track of their predictions, and also to chart what actually happened when each
  14. The simplistic answer is for the same reason Laywers have a Bar association, and Accountants have their own association. Self regulating, holding it's members to a standard. Can't get a job unless you're a part of the organization, among other things...
