You won't hear anything for awhile yet, because they don't even know if they'll be allowed to start yet.

Yet again YWG777, CanJet is NOT Air Canada's discount operator.

Canjet is, however, probably not going to operate after all, as the IMP group, based in Halifax, NS, has said it would be too risky, especially with one discount airline already starting to expand into Eastern and Atlantic Canada.

As for the AC "Lite", it will probably go ahead, but not for a year or so at least, as the bigwigs in Ottawa don't want it to start operations until then. I'm not sure why, but it might be to do with the competition legislation as outlined by Ottawa a couple of months ago.

CanJet was proposed as a totally new airline in eastern Canada to be owned by I.M.P. Group, with a similar philosophy to WestJet. It has been delayed, and may not ever go ahead, probably largely due to WestJet's rapid move eastward. CanJet would not be affiliated with any other airline.

Air Canada Lite is AC's proposed discount airline. It doesn't actually have a name yet, the newspapers have dubbed it AC Lite. It is different from CanJet.

We'll see what happens with either concept, as rumours are really rampant right now.

Where will Air Canada's discount airline be based? Hopefully out west. To many airlines based in the east.

AC has said it will operate it's discount operation from Hamilton, as well.

The west is sparsely populated, and has strong loyalty to WestJet..

I doubt it'll even happen. AC has enough going on with getting CP's debt in order. Eventually, the two will be merged and I'm sure Uncle Milty will have enough on his plate trying to get that all in order let alone worry about starting up a new subsidary. IF it happens, it'll be a while.

Any ideas of types of Aircraft they will fly. Is this a different airline to Canjet? I hope they make YWG its central hub and YVR its Pacific hub.

It will hopefully happen
