  1. Calgary Airport off track AGAIN

    YYC is a joke. How’s WestJet agreed to let that ridiculous new terminal with flaws everywhere to be built is a massive failure on their part. I’ve heard numerous complaints about US and International connections there and people intentionally avoiding it, preferring Edmonton and Vancouver. Disclaimer: My only personal experience was departing from the hell hole that is the D70-73 swing gates. But at least there are animals to pet.
  2. Trump Wins

    What does this even mean? Trashing Trump is popular, pedestrian, bandwagon and boring. He was democratically elected by having 63 million Americans vote for him with a present approval rating higher than 8 of Canada’s premiers. Don’t turn this into Trump bashing thread, in my opinion, the righteousness of some Canadians is a bit much for me. The AC commercial played up a certain theme with little to do with Air Canada itself.
  3. Airbus paid $0 for CSeries. I’m guess Boeing is about to pay a lot more than that for E. Reactionary and self inflicted
  4. Great New AirCanada Commercial

    Talk about a tick-every-box commercial..... But I agree with Malcolm - better than Canadian 2.0’s commercials.
  5. 50,000? Passengers Stranded at LHR

    They mention de-icing at the gate, so a bit off topic: but which Canadian airport handles de-icing the best? Which worst?
  6. WS and DL now exclusive?

    .@Delta and @WestJet agree to form joint venture | Delta News Hub ATLANTA and CALGARY, Dec. 6, 2017 — Delta Air Lines and WestJet have agreed to deepen their existing partnership by entering into a comprehensive transborder joint venture that will increase travel choices between the U.S. and Canada. The airlines have entered into a preliminary memorandum of understanding regarding their intention to deepen their existing partnership to form a commercial joint venture arrangement, which will offer customers access to an extensive transborder route network, world-class airline products, enhanced frequent flyer benefits, shared airport facilities and amenities, and a more seamless travel experience.
  7. Did I miss something? Holly is pretty well connected... “Great Pre-Turkey day issue of PlaneBusiness Banter including the news that @WestJet has thrown over @AmericanAir for an exclusive codeshare relationship with @Delta”
  8. Emirates and Boeing Reaching $15.1B Deal

    Wonder if they dumped them dirt cheap in a high profile attempt to say “$@&? you” Airbus for the cSeries deal. Plus may kill A380 once and for all...?
  9. New Low Cost Start up in Canada

    I think we can all agree this is an attempt to cut off any new entrant from the market. What rational investor wants to dump money into a new airline when WJ is willing to do whatever it takes to sink you. My how things go full circle
  10. More @CBCNews: Europe's Airbus to buy majority stake in Bombardier CSeries program. Airbus will acquire a 50.01 per cent interest in the CSeries Aircraft Limited Partnership (CSALP), which manufactures and sells the plane. Bombardier will own 31 per cent and the Quebec government's investment agency will hold 19 per cent.
  11. R.I.P. Tom Petty, Aged 66

    Unless two separate and independent sources told them, then the "journalist" didn't do their job.
  12. R.I.P. Tom Petty, Aged 66

    Word is the "journalist" got it wrong and he is still alive in hospital.
  13. Swoop??

    The dumbest name. The ugliest livery. With the sole purpose of doing exactly what WS screamed and went insane over in the early 2000 - to eliminate upcoming competition. Wont take very long for people to disparagingly call it "poop"
  14. Swoop?? WestJet Airlines said it will offer fares that are 40 per cent cheaper than those currently available in Canada as it unveiled new details about Swoop, the ultra-low-cost carrier it plans on launching next summer.
