  1. Frontier Coming to YYC

    Talking about different things, I think. The reason for a high segment fare even when there is little traffic: If you have an hour: https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/civil-and-environmental-engineering/1-201j-transportation-systems-analysis-demand-and-economics-fall-2008/lecture-notes/MIT1_201JF08_lec17.pdf
  2. Frontier Coming to YYC

    It is called 'Bid Price' The concept is not complex but the software to do it right is expensive.
  3. Frontier Coming to YYC

    Are you related to the Route Manager at Air Canada in 1995 who wrote the press relese when AC started YYC-DEN? She wrote "Now Calgarians will be able to go see the Rockies". The segment fares YYC-DEN are high because the likes of United are looking for a fare equivalent to the cash they would get by selling the seat to someone going YYC-DEN-MSY.
  4. I think that we need to say this 35 million more times and then maybe people in Canada will recognize it. After all this is how the eco-fanatics sold this bill of goods to start with.
  5. Frontier Coming to YYC

    Not nearly enough to sustain this flight. I wonder what beyond YYC traffic Westjet are counting upon.
  6. WestJet and Cello

    I want to take my grand piano with me and I expect the airlines to comply.
  7. National Disgrace

    How would special interest groups (read province) get their cut of the lolly that way?
  8. In my opinion: If Trump is as crazy as the lefties would have us believe then North Korea would be a smoking mass of twisted steel already. Trump could unleash thousands of cruise missiles and make North Korea a smoking mass of twisted steel at anytime. North Korea needs to be shutdown and Dennis Rodman is not the guy yo do it. This cannot be another Neville Chamberlain moment. USA needs to tell China and Russia the hellfire is coming to North Korea so stay out of the way.
  9. OMG NO FOOD (⸮)

    They should also do an investigation into Ottawa and YOW because things seem to go wrong there all of the time.
  10. Why does McCain stay with the Republicans? Surely he would be happier as a Democrat. His constituency may not r e-elect him as a Democrat, but then he does not have another term left in his body.
  11. But if one follows the incidents of death by drunk driver the drunk driver is at 3 or 4 times the 80 milligram level. But the solution is to lower the 80 milligram level to 50 milligrams?
  12. Not quite: The case was 3 different applications of three parts of the Charter. The SCC said in the first case that Canada should not have given transcripts of their interviews to the Americans (even though the Americans probably had original tapes of the interviews). The second part said that Canada was complicit in an illegal detention because they interviewed Khadr when the government knew he was sleep deprived. The SCC upheld the third case that the government was NOT obligated to seek repatriation. The case in whole is typical SCC in that it is gobbledygook to the layman and leaves future generations to try and decipher what was meant. Constitutional law — Charter of Rights — Application — Canadian citizen detained by U.S. authorities at Guantanamo Bay — Canadian officials interviewing detainee knowing that he had been subjected to sleep deprivation and sharing contents of interviews with U.S. authorities — Whether process in place at Guantanamo Bay at that time violated Canada’s international human rights obligations — Whether Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms applies to conduct of Canadian state officials alleged to have breached detainee’s constitutional rights. Constitutional law — Charter of Rights — Right to life, liberty and security of person — Fundamental justice — Canadian citizen detained by U.S. authorities at Guantanamo Bay — Canadian officials interviewing detainee knowing that he had been subjected to sleep deprivation and sharing contents of interviews with U.S. authorities — Whether conduct of Canadian officials deprived detainee of his right to liberty and security of person — If so, whether deprivation of detainee’s right is in accordance with principles of fundamental justice — Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms , s. 7 . Constitutional law — Charter of Rights — Remedy — Request for repatriation — Canadian citizen detained by U.S. authorities at Guantanamo Bay — Canadian officials interviewing detainee knowing that he had been subjected to sleep deprivation and sharing contents of interviews with U.S. authorities — Violation of detainee’s right to liberty and security of person guaranteed by Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms — Detainee seeking order that Canada request his repatriation from Guantanamo Bay — Whether remedy sought is just and appropriate in circumstances — Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms , s. 24(1) . https://scc-csc.lexum.com/scc-csc/scc-csc/en/item/7842/index.do
  13. Just the opposite. I have seen many times an inspector delaying the pax and their luggage until the get the signal that the aircraft has left. They then 'release' the pax.
  14. Do not forget. That is $500 for you and $500 for your spouse and $500 for anyone else in your household and $500 for......... If that does not reduce CO2 then raise the tax which is exactly what Trudeau has said they will do.
