  1. This is now not about domestic travel however, international connections. If you look at the WJ shift the last 12-18 months, they have dropped all direct flying from remote(not hub) airports and shifted to hub and spoke( YYZ YYC YVR). Now why the YXU-YUL.? I agree, it’s a response. So I change my mind, it’s about domestic, the point to point has me baffled. Maybe widebody out of YUL to come?
  2. Don’t let them merge, one dies.... prices go up. Let them merger, prices go up.
  3. The 67 should be able to back up the operation too. Guess we will see.
  4. I should had also given the sympathetic part of my post. I’ll keep it easy, WestJet screwed up.
  5. I heard the crews did a great job during a bad day at work, 3 attempts to depart with anti skid inop, gate returns and maintenance. Ultimate cancellation. Those days just don’t get better. When I’m a passenger and things like this happen, I hit Hotwire and grab a room, run for a cab. The waiting in lines is killer. Go, get some rest have something to eat, then call the airline when the dust settles. Submit your receipts when you get home. checklist complete.
  6. I was pushed and clipped wings a couple years ago. It was nearly 2 hours before we were pulled back to the gate. Investigations by the GTA, ground service company, airline, maintenance and finally the police (who actually asked for our drivers licenses and said they were treating it like a motor vehicle accident). I made announcements regularly, probably too often to tell truth. My FO while we were sitting there, reviewed Twitter. The passenger said, “we crashed into a plane and nobody is saying anything, I don’t know what’s happening, help”. I can’t remember the name, but we responded to take your earbuds out, waited and made a specific announcement directed at the individual. ?
  7. Is this about the contract negotiations? Sounds like sour grapes.
  8. I think he is “complexintentions” on avcanada
  9. I believed all his posts were unbiased (lol). There number are the numbers. Bean was never wrong. **bleep** off many but hey... Porter is still around. So he wasn’t perfect. Regards Kip. I felt you story, all the best in the next chapter, or a few from now. Your a mentor.
  10. Anyone see the possibility that the USA could open the borders? After Trump lol.
  11. Shouldn’t your picture be updated? If it was a drivers licence, would she/he have made it invalid? Using 5 year old picture ID with opposing gender would make them irresponsible and illegal I’d say.
  12. I’m not sure if it’s a blow of cash.... new airplanes out of Boeing... Swoop... taking revenue aircraft out of service that are owned, not leased, for months, to compete with your own airline.... then I would say your cooking with gas. The only unknown, of which I refuse to speculate, how will Swoop do?
  13. What a great story... enjoy the bumpy ride, and the best is... the family understands.
  14. Don’t see much carry on luggage either!!!!!!
  15. This means nothing... why did you underline “ATR” as this has nothing to do with an airplane unless that’s what you were thinking. Looks like they applied for something they already had LOL
  16. Thanks. Found it. 1.13.8 Fatigue The test of influence of fatigue is conducted to understand whether the actions of a person are consistent with what is known about human performance in a state of fatigue. The investigation conducted a thorough fatigue analysis that included the captain’s OSA, the flight crew’s work–rest history, circadian rhythm timing, and the crew’s management of the flight and evaluation of their options. Given that the captain rarely used CPAP therapy, he would have been at risk of fatigue related to chronic sleep disruption caused by his OSA. However, there was no indication that fatigue played a causal or contributory role in this occurrence.
  17. A little bit of thread drift here. In regards to the AC Halifax crash, we waited way too long for that report to come out. During this time there were many armchair quarterback discussions on contributing factors. Every discussion, every pilot, believed that it was possible the same event could happen to them. We have all been there on that dark dirty night, on your 14th hour of duty on day 5, after the 5 day you did before that with a day off in between that you couldn't get home because your a commuter. Pilots still muster the concentration and focus to deliver what passengers think is a safe approach and landing. My question. Why was fatigue not even mentioned in the report? I and many pilots believed this was going to be a catalyst in bringing pilot fatigue a high priority in the new duty and flight time regs. Not only that, but after the report, I havent heard it questioned the fact fatigue wasn't mentioned. We can learn so much.
  18. I remember when CARS was arriving... all the same BS. The effect's were about 5% of assumed cost employers complained about. Its about safety, these folks have to stop thinking it's a adjustable cost. Instead start thinking it's a fixed cost like an engine, hold your head high and operate proudly. Instead, some of these operator look like crying little Babies, if safety costs too much for you, close your doors. Hopefully somebody will come in fill the void and do it properly, safely and still make money, and someone will. mic drop.
