  1. It's about time that fares went up to a realistic level. If the price of oil keeps rising air travel may once again become something which is out of reach to the average citizen. Now it is too bad that history will repeat itself when the next new kid on the block starts to put ridiculously low fares on the market.

  2. Either two things are happening. Jetsgo is well on the way to going TU hence most of the recent signs, or they are going to weather this storm and continue to pester WJA until at least next Winter. All things being equal, I sincerely hope that Westjet is prepared to roll up the sleaves and face the music. Unlike our friends to the south, Canada can not sustain this level of capacity.

  3. better4me,

    I don't think SGs F100s can make it from Sask to YYZ due to their poor range and I think a MD80 is a bit much for those routes.

    I believe that ACs strategy going forward is wise. By rightsizing the equipment on these types of domestic routes, AC will be able to offer a frequency and service which the other guys can not viably match.


  4. Think of the managed mode as being similar to VNAV/LNAV in a Boeing a/c. In the bus pushing the ALT knob = VNAV and pushing the HDG knob = LNAV. Pulling ALT = FLCH (sort of) and pulling HDG = Hdg Sel. That is a simplified way of explaining the logic to a Boeing pilot.

    Good luck.

  5. Whenever something goes wrong or fails, it is much more effective to correct the system which allowed the problem to take place than it is to correct only the problem. They can charge the pilot and make a mockery of him but I guarantee it will happen again. I personally blame Transport Canada for a lot of the crap that flys in this industry. Jetsgo is a perfect example. Some operators in Canada could not even hold an OC in the 3rd world.
