  1. Seeker, +1. Imagine the uproar if the flight had cancelled and ferried out of there to where a fix could have been made. "Corona virus declared global health emergency by WHO" I guess the CBC does not understand priorities and mechanical realities.
  2. Could some one offer the writer a dictionary ?
  3. I was thinking more of Casino, stand up bar, (sorry, Continental already did that on their DC-10s), dance floor, (didn't someone already do that in the upper deck of the 747), putting green, ya know "great new features."
  4. and they’ll call it “re-branding” the aircraft. Isn't that what Trump suggested some time ago? If I recall it was something like, "Re-brand it and include some great new features" https://www.politico.com/story/2019/04/15/trump-boeing-737-max-1274719 Not sure what "Great new features" could be though, but I'm sure he could come up with something.
  5. 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.?
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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. ?
  11. 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 ??? ?
  12. Maybe my memory is going LaLa, but I thought that Canadian went to Gatwick for their London operations.
  13. 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?
  14. 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.
