  1. I doubt Don Bell would have allowed such nonsense back in the day. There is always circumstances that must be considered. WS used to empower their people to make the right decision. Now it’s the news media telling tens of thousands, of not more, about WestJet crappy service.
  2. Presently First Air operates two flights a day (one on Sat) each to Churchill and Rankin. Those appear to be gone eff. Nov1. Wonder if they are going to CALM Air?
  3. Looking at the schedule beyond Nov 1 - appears Winnipeg is being dropped entirely from the network?
  4. Swoop must not operate with any spares. And even if they did, the operation is so spread out any problems at one end of the country takes 5-6 hours for the hot spare to even show up.
  5. I've read on other forums that AA connections were solid on the previous WS YYC-DFW and YYC-ORD flights. I wonder if DL and AA could get into a tussle for a piece of the WS action?
  6. What are the odds Delta takes a slice from Onex?
  7. Bloomberg reporting, and some evidence to support, that China has grounded the 737Max fleet. Bloomberg, citing Caijing, reports that China has asked domestic operators to ground their 737 MAX aircraft. While we have yet been unable to officially confirm such, this is the number of 737 MAX flights above China now vs. the same time last week. https://www.flightradar24.com/36.94,103.39/4 https://twitter.com/flightradar24/status/1104897693149728768/photo/1 https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-03-10/china-asks-local-airlines-to-ground-boeing-737-max-caijing-says
  8. Where are these -175s all coming from?
  9. Anyone who thinks AB, especially YYC, is improving economically is dilusional. AC continues to give YYC to WS. Trunk route flights will always be solid - but the “hub status” for AC is long gone. YWG will transform into a major “low cost” city, with ever increasing presence of these carriers. Again, AC moves towards providing trunk route service only.
  10. This kind of a response confirms my interpretation of the original statements intention.
  11. If you don't understand why the pilots - along with FA's and those employee flying non-rev all chipped in to help groom the aircraft, then you don't understand the philosophy of WestJet (at least the old school philosophy) By the way, in my opinion, thinking that it's demeaning to pilots for helping turn the aircraft is pompous, arrogant and insulting.
  12. The famous - expand because peak periods we are busy. Meanwhile the place is empty 23 hours a day. Typical Airport Authority nonsense. Airlines should be charged based on time-of-day demand.
  13. Helps when you sell the airport for a half a billion
  14. Sorry to make your day - it’s a really ugly livery on a massively expensive airplane with far more capabilities than required. See the next 4 AC A330’s.
  15. Gate agents are not bouncers but it’s a lot easier and cheaper to deal with this on the ground than in the air. I would argue they have a responsibility to be watching for passenger behaviours and deny boarding. And you’re telling me the crew didn’t get a sense the guy was drunk? Did they think, ah maybe he will sleep it off, we just won’t serve him. The flight didn’t get too far from YYC before he decision was made to turn back. Most likely a case of everyone trying to be “nice” and “avoid conflict.”
