    Calgary Olympic bid or not

    Well in fairness, it depends how you define profit. I could make a fortune in the airline business if I didn’t have to pay for any capital costs - like airplanes.

    Calgary Olympic bid or not

    Some Calgarians don’t want to pay (can’t blame them since the Province and the Feds won’t pay for what most believe will be games that go over budget (which they almost all do and which was only cobbled together at the last minute - and short of the initial desired target - even now there are holes in the numbers (like $200m in unavailable insurance policies??)). Some are not impressed with the process; the local government and the Bid committee has been accused of not being transparent nor having a solid sense of a financial plan or event plan (if you’ve read anything about the Bid over the past few months you would agree - for example the security budget is half what Vancouver spent 8 yrs ago and they have no where for the Curling events yet (Edmonton?)) Some want the games as they believe it’s an effective way to leverage other governments money to refurbish and build things (like a field house for Calgary; note the Bid doesn’t include a new arena to replace the Saddledome) and others think its the economic boost the city needs. I personally don’t think it will pass, I think the questions and concerns will out vote the spirit and hope. 65/35 But if it did pass, and considering it’s 8 years from now - I wonder which Airline would be the official one. Hmmmm

    Swoop Tagged With Complaint

    In “a” base fare. So nothing preventing a swoop from posting a Y fare of $3,900 from YEG to YXX one bag included and ending the complaint.
  4. So biased ”Air Canada now outperforms all of its North American major-airline peers on the key metric of revenue per employee, at $688,000 to WestJet’s $392,000.” This is is a key metric?

    ID Check

    Funny how that works - so instead of 14 people, now its tens of thousands and infinity with google. So lets really think about what this complaint and call to the reporter was all about.

    ID Check

    But the person got to be on TV and the internet and will feel better about making sure they've been heard by exponentially blowing up the interaction, and the so called reporter got to write another trashing the airlines story - those get decent clicks.
  7. Buyer beware. Lots of successful “low fare” airlines - ones which passengers can have lots of confidence in.
  8. Yah. Grass is never greener on the other side. The transformation of WS continues.
  9. Ha ha ha ha. Enjoy that. Canadian2.0

    First WJ plane in new livery

    At least I’m consistent eh? ....and yes “ugly” referred to the livery.
  12. So only low fare passengers act up? No profiling or ignorance there.....

    Westjet pilots strike vote

    WestJet management is screwing up more now than they did back in 2003.

    Emirates Parking Planes

    What are you talking about? Every single industry stakeholder lost out? Delta alone paid out $5 Billion dollars in profit sharing over the last five years. Seems to me pilots, FAs and ramp people did okay
