  1. I wonder if the TV program that was done on a day at work with an airline pilot is still around somewhere ? i know there have been a few but the one I am thinking about starred none other than AEF’s own Don Hudson. Plays a pretty impressive piece by Chopin on the ivories as parr of it.?
  2. It really boils down to the seating that the airline specified when they ordered the aircraft which is their decision. The airframe it is stuck in makes little significant difference IMO. Maybe the 787 cabin altitude can be appreciated but other than variations in enroute time on very long haul, 737/767 makes little difference to me. Having said that, I did not enjoy the flights I did in Max from the point of view of the Galley/Washroom area. That design is awful as far as I am concerned. My biggest peeve on seats are those that are short in the fore and aft dimension so that your thighs are not supported far enough forward. I find those very uncomfortable far too soon into the flight.
  3. Just travelled YVR-OGG on Omni, ( at least I think it was Omni, Winglets 767 ?), and thought the seating in steerage was par for the course. I am a shade under 6ft and had no problems, travelled in worse actually. Cabin crew were Rouge, ( and were very good), and other than the “Box Lunch” dining it was all pretty much what Rouge is about.
  4. At YQQ last August, flown by Dave Hadfield. The restoration of this aircraft is a superb job. It probably looks better than when it was built. He did a couple of demos and was joined by another restored Spitfire from Seattle at the hangar on the base where they had a fund raiser dinner. The whole thing was really well done.
  5. Surely it is uncontrolled and unqualified drone operation that is a problem for airports and controlled airspace. If it is properly run and integrated with the operation of the airport and airspace it could work OK. Moving time sensitive and priority goods etc. comes to mind.
  6. Too bad the Rhinoceros Party is no longer around. Their platform was, that if elected, the first thing they would do would be to ask for a recount. ?
  7. Not saying I disagree with you, but what do you do with the existing aircraft and the 4,000 or so orders for the Max, not to mention the planning that must have been done in anticipation of taking delivery? Something of a "too big to fail" situation ??? ?
  8. Maybe my memory is going LaLa, but I thought that Canadian went to Gatwick for their London operations.
  9. https://nationalpost.com/news/canada/air-canada-ordered-to-pay-12k-to-man-who-couldnt-order-7up-in-french Would this be the same individual?
  10. Also, many of the flights that landed since this occurred cannot deplane, as there are not enough gates available. Wonder if it will become cost effective to find some of the PTVs that used to be used for off gate boarding/deplaning. Mirabel comes to mind, they were a significant part of passenger movement at the time.
  11. Fun to watch, lot of money close together. ? https://www.chonday.com/16377/fivebujawe2/
  12. CUPE could at least proofread their document and spell Calin’s name correctly. ?. Blame the autocorrect I suppose.
  13. Could not agree more. I have a three generation history of the women on my mother's side of the family and it saw my mother gone in her fifties. The company Doc in YVR, (who I had a lot of time for), said, "Colon cancer could almost be called a preventable disease if caught early enough". The prep is not the greatest but the procedure is not too hard to take and the preventive value is "Priceless". Edit: just realized on reading that my handle could be a very poor pun, but not intended. ?
  14. Well maybe the aircraft may not be technically grounded but it is more than just "Restricted from commercial service". It is banned from operation in the airspace of many jurisdictions, Canada being one of them. I believe the EU allowed three ferry flights per airframe for storage, placement etc. and that was it. Political regulators are not going to stick their necks out until it is fixed and confidence restored.
