  1. I had a similar experience just after AC took over CP and I was travelling on a 737 for one of the few times in my life. I was also on the right hand side just behind the wing and watched a liquid seeping out from the thrust reverser seam I cannot remember if it looked like oil or hydraulic fluid. I sent my observations to the flight deck via the flight attendant and received an invite to go up and talk. They said that the engine was on monitor and was due for a hangar visit in a day or two. I checked the next day and saw that that airplane was now in the hangar for an unscheduled engine change.
  2. I remember when Air BC started operating on the same routes as Air Canada back in the early 90's and the same disconnect occurred. Some of the YEG-YVR flights were operated by ZX and the rest by AC. When ZX had a problem the guys in Montreal did not even want to hear about it. I had some high up contacts in Montreal and voiced my opinion rather strongly. Nothing happened right away but eventually the attitude in YUL changed and we ran the route as a combined operation. I believe that with the arrival of Rouge (after I left AC) the same thing happened but after awhile the word came through that the passengers knew they were all the same company.
  3. That is only Leftie talk and does not apply to their personal posts.
  4. Is that because they are the closest parking spots to the terminal?
  5. Green projects cannot exist without subsidies.
  6. I see re-charging stations in parking lots and shopping centres but never see any cars getting a charge.
  7. No: Barbie is the problem.
  8. Yup The guy that Canadians did not want is doing well.
  9. This probably hurts the NDP in Alberta too. They have touted the 'Carbon Tax' as a good idea.
  10. I doubt that they were 'slots'
  11. The difference between trip costs of a -200 and a -300 is about 10% higher whereas the capacity is 50% higher so go for the bigger one every time.
