  1. shocking Winnipeg airport improvement fee notching up Sept. 1 06/1/2020 7:46 AM Winnipeg Airports Authority will be increasing its Airport Improvement Fee by Sept. 1 to offset the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The fee, applied to commercial airline passengers departing the Richardson International Airport, will increase from $25 to $38 per passenger, according to the airport authority. The Winnipeg Airports Authority cited the economic consequences of the pandemic, noting that air traffic in April alone fell in excess of 95 per cent, and that it is expected to take several years to return to normal air traffic volumes. The airport improvement fees are dedicated towards capital needed to maintain critical infrastructure for the benefit of the community, and does not cover airport operating costs, the airport authority said.
  2. People are sheep. And most can’t think for themselves. When a number like three years is floated out there, in the interest of a) not having to do any thinking and b) be a sheep and not disturb group think, many others jump onto it as well. No one knows. People can make plans with various scenarios - and three years being one of them. The only reason I’m not on a plane right now is because I’m not doing a two-week quarantine on the outbound and inbound. Who has a month to kill.
  3. Airport authorities spend money with such disregard to any rational frugal thought. And why should they - Just jack the AIF. Non profit - get bent. Spend at Will and chase the revenue later.
  4. The odds of that happening are low. More risky driving to the store. Rational thinking is missing from far too many actions.
  5. Ration thinking left humanity long ago. Our “education” system wouldn’t want to teach kids how to critical think and ponder rational thoughts - it would throw a wrench in the entire liberal education agenda.
  6. I was trying to convey my thanks to those people at Canadian and hoped that they had favours returned to them.
  7. In a former life the friendly kind folks at Canadian were always willing to help out. Always appreciated. I hope somehow they got it back.
  8. People are fearful sheep soaking up internet nonsense.
  9. The photos are Interesting but the pax load is what caught my attention.
  10. Get what you pay for. Swoop won’t be around forever as people realize what a crappy product it is and with any sort of planning you can pay almost the same on AC/WS. Plus I wonder if Onex will keep it once Flairs dies. The only “value“ is Swoop flying non-stop in markets the big two don’t. But everyone I talked to said their Swoop flights were delayed (I’ve done one and it was 2.5 hrs late). So what do you really save?
  11. Canada Jetlines postpones launch over financing challenges, lays off staff @GlobeBusiness
  12. I’m sure AC wouldn’t be opposed to returning to Airbus NB. CR is going to up Boeing’s #*% on this fiasco and will be coming home with some free shiny new 787s and suitcases of money.
  13. 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.
  14. 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?
  15. Looking at the schedule beyond Nov 1 - appears Winnipeg is being dropped entirely from the network?
