  1. When the Concorde was on its farewell tour, it came through YYZ. It was departing R23 with our 767 next in line holding short at Hotel. With us only a 150 feet away, it brought the engines up to full, before releasing the brakes. I've never experienced a better example of turning JetB into noise. Our whole airplane shook with rock concert level bass boom that made your stomach flutter, and we were unable to hear ourselves. In my memory, I've made it a full afterburner takeoff, but can't really remember whether that's true or not. Pretty impressive way to let everyone know you're leaving the building either way.
  2. Based on how well it was written, I think Tommy has finally made it big!
  3. Haha, I like the way you think Boestar. As a commuter, I’ve often seen people’s frustration when experiencing gate arrival holds. The best is when a flight is 30 minutes early, and no gate is available, so you wait 20 minutes. Even though the flight is still 10 minutes early, and people were told to prepare for a flight x hours and x minutes long, they totally begin to come unglued once the plane has landed. Who hasn’t considered, in jest, to ask for a hold, for a few laps, rather than arrive early and risk the stares from those aren’t happy with 10 early and would rather have 30.

  5. Anybody else catch the hypocrisy of self appointed passenger advocate Gabor Lukacs, who now WORKS for Flair Air, chastising THE RCMP, saying this was a civil matter. They were called by employees of the company he now works for. I wouldn't expect any impartiality from this know-it-all-who-knows- nothing, from now on. Any other airlines, who have 12 hour delays, he burns to the ground. Now silence. What are the RCMP suppose to do when they are called BY Flair; not show up? Hypocritic.

  7. It might be a historical Industry turning point for the improper and sometimes overused “Ground Checked Servicable”.
