  1. I think the exclusivity is good as at least a temporary measure. We all know the Big Two want to start their service, kill Flair and then after a while say "Gee, I guess there is no market here. Too bad Flair doesn't exist anymore". We know your game AC and WJ. It reminds me of AC abandoning YTZ until Porter came along. Then all of a sudden they were interested again but it was too late. Flair just won the CTA judgement. "To quote an earlier article...."Aviation observer and McGill professor Karl Moore said this week he wouldn’t be surprised if the regulator was prepared to show some flexibility at a time when the travel industry is still recovering from the devastating impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. “Really you have two dominant players and most Canadians would realize that it’s not a lot of competition compared to the U.S. or Europe or Asia,” Moore said. “CTA and Canadians want them to solve the problem because they want more competition.” In other words, AC and WJ are screwing over pax. It is about time someone started offering lower prices. The dominant players should try cutting their costs to cover instead of charging very high prices.
  2. Sounds like they need an exemption for some reason. Did something not go as planned?
  3. Here is another song from the same artist, the lyrics describe the frauds perfectly.
  4. Well how about that folks, even the best and brightest(me :)) get fooled by the frauds on occasion. I have assumed all along that the kidnap plot against the left-wing governor of Michigan was just what the media was telling us. We saw the typical anti-Trump people posting about this and the usual right wing extremists, always linked to Trump and any conservative really. I should have known better. I haven't followed it in much detail. Just the headlines. Then I was reading this today: "And last week, two of four men were acquitted in a conspiracy to kidnap Whitmer in 2020 in a case that has raised questions about whether the FBI engaged in entrapment." Still don't know the details and maybe these were bad guys, but never, EVER trust the fake news mainstream media. Ignore the frauds, although I have to say that there have been a lower amount of those types of posts on this forum in recent times. I am wondering why and if I was helpful in bringing more truth to this forum. Comment away.
  5. I found some old info on the subject. I guess Jetlines was given an exemption, so hopefully everything is OK. Nice to have a new Airbus operator in the country(ignore the old picture). " Canada Jetlines wins exemption to foreign ownership limit Author of the article: Debora Van Brenk Publishing date: Nov 03, 2016 • November 3, 2016 • 2 minute read Article content An ultra-low-cost airline that’s aiming to include regular London flights as part of its service has won a key concession that will allow it to get off the ground. Canada Jetlines’ plans were hamstrung by a regulation that set foreign ownership levels at a maximum of 25 per cent. But federal Transport Minister Marc Garneau has announced Jetlines can be exempt from that regulation out of interest for the public good, as long as controlling interest remains in Canadian hands. “We want Canadians to feel that air travel is affordable,” said MP Kate Young (L–London West), parliamentary secretary to Garneau. She said talks are under way to allow for a blanket provision that airlines be allowed as much as 49 per cent foreign ownership. Canada is a large country with a small population, which makes it important for airlines to be able to seek additional capital, Young said. “It’s expected to mean more competition, more choice, and lower prices for Canadians.” Calgary-based Enerjet also won an exemption from the existing foreign-ownership rules. The decision clears the runway for as many as 40 different flight routes to and from secondary airports in Canada — including potentially London International Airport — and in several U.S. states, at prices about 30 per cent lower than their competitors’ lowest fare. Jetlines would be based in Vancouver, Hamilton and Winnipeg, and in this region would fly its aircraft out of London, Kitchener and/or Hamilton. “All the airports could have increased capacity,” said Jim Scott, president of Canada Jetlines. London does have good service, he said Thursday, but added there is plenty of room for Jetlines’ point-to-point service from secondary airports such as London’s to major hubs. London International Airport Authority president Mike ­Seabrook said the federal move “is certainly a step in the right direction.” Seabrook said he has been in numerous meetings and discussions with Canada Jetlines and it gives every indication London meets its market and business model. “They certainly have done a lot of market research, a lot of legwork.” Thousands of passengers “leak” out of the area to pick up flights from Toronto, Detroit and Buffalo because of cost or convenience. Canadians take an estimated five million flights a year from U.S. airports near where they live. Those passengers are going to be Jetlines’ primary customers. In an interview earlier this year, Scott said the move here could create 50 full-time jobs, 650 indirect jobs and $150 million in annual economic benefit. The company hopes it can be up and flying by next summer, Scott said Thursday. The cost of a fare would get a passenger the seat, with fees for optional services such as baggage check-in or in-flight food."
  6. Updated information from the Russian Defense Ministry. The pride of the fleet was not sunk or damaged in any way. Any mention of a Ukrainian attack is a blatant lie. Instead, with the extremely successful phase one of the special operation complete, the ship has been re-assigned to anti-submarine duties.
  7. Thanks for the replies guys. I wish them the best. Was a bit curious about their ownership structure in light of the Flair issue.
  8. Just curious how one gets a bunch of high time Airbus pilots in Canada. Maybe a few low time Air Transat pilots on layoff but that would be about it.
  9. Isn't Jetlines working with a company called Global crossing out of the U.S.? I ask this because I have heard that Flair is running into some difficulties based on their business dealings with the company they are associated with in the U.S. It appears that Flair may be in a situation where any money brought in goes to the U.S. partner. I suspect these big U.S. companies want control.
  10. Interesting, but where did these Airbus guys come from? Overseas? And where did they go? Boeings?
  11. I care because he did not have 88 million followers, I was following him 88 million times. That is a lot of replying though.
  12. Time to expose the frauds again with their lie that the rich got richer: "The richest people on Earth are not immune to the coronavirus. As the pandemic tightened its grip on Europe and America, global equity markets imploded, tanking many fortunes. When we finalized this list, Forbes counted 2,095 billionaires, 58 fewer than a year ago and 226 fewer than just 12 days earlier, when we initially calculated these net worths. Of the billionaires who remain, 51% are poorer than they were last year. In raw terms, the world’s billionaires are worth $8 trillion, down $700 billion from 2019." Canada’s Richest Billionaires 2020 – Forbes I suppose the writers at Time has become politicized like so many others and want taxes raised due to their jealousy, the real reason they keep repeating this. I say, donate more. Mind you, most seem to be in the 99% club anyways with almost all wealth going to charity. Way better than going to the Trudeau/Singh coalition. Less taxes, less government spending, more donations.
  13. A little reality of what happens when enough people listen to advice like this: https://www.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=2411616&playlistId=1.5838060&binId=1.810401&playlistPageNum=1&binPageNum=1
  14. Looks like the frauds are exposed again. After all their campaigning about how terrible Harper was for choosing the F-35, and putting us through years of this, we will be getting the F-35.
