Here's the first sign that things aren't going perfectly for Canjet:

CanJet and the various start-ups will slowly find out how difficult it will be to play in the big leagues! Competition, yes, works both ways.

Too bad, since Windsor was one of the underserved marketes (along with St. John's). I hope they will revisit this decision later.

Well I can't say that this is a surprise, I don't think there is market large enough to sustain two carriers, especial with detroit so close, there is no need to connect through YYZ to go to Europe or Asia. Maybe they will be ok on the other routes, but I doubt it, and I think that Canjet will be finished within the next few months.

Interesting. But in my view Windsor should be quite fertile ground for alternative airlines. A decent sized population, not much service, and the ability to siphon traffic from Detroit. I have to wonder whether promotion of the route was perhaps a problem?

Hmmm, I wonder if WestJet will go there? Hamilton may have some potential as an O&D market to Windsor, and westbound connections or even direct service has potential, at least in my view. And we know that WJ is a strong competitor...
