  1. Opens the door for the Quebec Gov't to act on an "assistance package" or maybe even partial stake in the airline! Forget about the Feds helping at this time! Obviously the Feds have no appetite for any airline assistance at this time!
  2. It doesn't fit the narrative! Media loves to inflame the public by using "bailout". That's what they do!
  3. Ask the airlines to shut down as much as possible - even domestically? Pretty much already there as far as Canadian airlines are concerned! Then wait for the Feds to cover aircraft storage, etc? Short term bailout to resurrect a near totally collapsed Canadian airline industry? Enhanced EI? Pardon the pun but that sounds like a Dagger right to the heart of the airline industry as we know it! Based on what I've seen from JT and company that's the furthest thing from his mind. He's more concerned about carbon initiatives than airlines right now!
  4. Wasn't this announced months ago?
  5. Nothing will change with the new Transport minister, Trudeau calling the shots on this one!
  6. Could someone clarify.....WestJet updated refund policy...are they refunding all fares except self cancelation and Vacation fares? I've read on the WestJet website that they're reinstating refund practices pre covid. Pre covid non refundable fares were... non refundable. Am I missing something here? https://www.westjet.com/en-ca/travel-info/covid-refunds
  7. Marc Garneau gets his 2 cents worth in! https://twitter.com/MarcGarneau/status/1319061275155062784
  8. Regardless.....it's a PR nightmare! Welcome to Air Canada's world!?
  9. If that's the case Air Canada will likely park the fleet in the Spring and go into hibernation until the Feds figure out what they're doing!
  10. You're saying that if someone travels from NS to Ontario, that person is not required to quarantine for 14 days?
  11. This definitely wont help getting rid of the 14 day quarantine when travelling between provinces! What now? Shut down the airlines until a vaccine is found? I'm not sure where this is going to end up. Any thoughts?
  12. Even in the comments under the CBC headline of the WestJet layoffs, posters still use that opportunity to bash Air Canada! SMH!
  13. Are you sure it was AC that cancelled the flights in question or did the Federal Gov't have a say in this as well? Some provincial airports were closed and are still closed. Also I think multiple countries around the world banned air traffic from landing in their country. Is this the fault of AC? Does the contractual obligation failure still hold true for a worldwide pandemic? Natural disaster? Who exactly would you blame for the outstanding issue with non-refundable tickets? You can't compare the kitchen renovations to airline operations during a worldwide pandemic...sorry. And my thoughts apply not just to AC but all Canadian Airlines. I choose not to pick on one over the other!
  14. https://www.cbc.ca/news/business/air-canada-hiring-wage-subsidy-1.5525926?fbclid=IwAR22XB6phd_VhsI4UGojRgNjSSpcTofb_0-S7U6eTlYiOo94qoyWgtAPqi8 Just wait to see the ire when CBC allows comments!!
  15. The way the travel industry is heading right now their may be more parked there!
  16. Are any other airlines in Canada offering full credit for future air travel out of the country?
  17. CBC must've missed this! https://www.terracestandard.com/news/westjet-aircrafts-nose-gear-partially-collapses/ https://twitter.com/dirtbankapp/status/1223693759285620736?s=21&fbclid=IwAR0c7aOOs_1UryqrK69CUhQExkD5tYwePXTs62ei5UrUJoPEGChaxXayN0Q
  18. Darn! CBC didn't even allow comments on the news item!! ?
