  1. I see the 350-1000 being the eventual replacement for 777s...
  2. Big +1. Are we a free country and civilized society or not? I don't need the government telling me when or where or how I do anything when I'm not bothering anyone else. And it's about time for dogs on patios!
  3. They're buying like 5 or 6 of each to develop training programs for other militaries. Banana Republic needs an airforce on the cheap? Uncle SAM isn't getting them F35s, but is ready to get them up and running with these. The US has no need of these for their own operations.
  4. I bet this was a joke gone wrong... Captain leaves the video up and then goes back there where he's on it? Give me a break. There never was a live stream at all... that's why no camera could be found. I bet the Captain recorded a one time video with his iPad and then does a playback when someone comes up to run his "joke"... Except this time it was someone with their own set of issues with the airline and looking to be a victim and leverage the opportunity to any advantage they could.
  5. Happy to disagree on it. The world is changing, Russian, Chinese, whoever will be and are challenging our ability to control our territory. Particularly in the Arctic.
  6. Are we a sovereign nation or not? We absolutely do need interceptors. We absolutely do not need turboprop light attack aircraft We absolutely do need an extensive, Arctic capable Naval fleet. We have to own the North and the Arctic moving forward. That's where the pressure will and is coming, and from the Americans too. Our status quo capabilities basically cedes it to whomever wants to go up there... The Chinese nuclear ice breaker about to launch - rumoured to be the largest in the world - isn't for sailing the South China Sea...
  7. Right. Shouldn't have lied. They weren't breaking any laws.
  8. Small amounts though... You don't have to declare under $10,000 either. Nothing illegal about carrying $9000 in your bag.
  9. 6K? 9K? Hardly money laundering... Reporting requirements are only over 10K anyway I thought. It wouldn't surprise me if it was in a variety of currencies for varied layovers... I usually take out the equivalent of about $500 or so at a time to save on transaction fees... Euros, pounds, francs, shekels, yen, yuan, hk dollars, chilean pesos, colombian pesos, reals, us dollars, canadian dollars, mexican pesos... lots of places in this world to layover in and more. At the right time suddenly have 6 or 8000 dollars in your bag... Does AA pay an envelope of per diems in local currency on a pairing? If you aren't using it up or cashing it in, it can really add up...
  10. I like how quiet everything is... the plane is the only thing making callouts.
  11. "Joining the team at Swoop is a true privilege,” said Workman. “Swoop doesn’t just provide low-cost air travel in Canada; they connect friends and families. That is a business model I fully support and am thrilled to be part of it.” That is the least profound statement I can imagine.
  12. What year was that? Really I don't believe you, or hearsay at best.. but whatever... When?
  13. "I would say: Don't fly Swoop" Hahahahahahahahahaha... ya think!!!???
  14. New direction. Growth focused in the property division which Mach alleges had been particularly poorly managed. We always think the airline is the business, we're mostly airline people, but in Transat's case it's not, the package and property, are the business and assets. And the Mach bid was fully financed - they put a second revised offer without finance conditions last month which went ignored.
