Nice summary of the big picture, but I am sure more deals will come at ACR once the unions deals are made with "mother corp.", I think you will see the RJ's go to ACR (eventually), and that an order for new Dash 8's must be in the works.

All those shiny new planes still won't save AC's ass from the financial mess they are in right now......Long Live WESTJET

It's 8 A330's, number 8 comes this month, and the 10 737's that you have listed as retired by OCt01 are supposed to be transfered to the low cost airline. According to YYZnews anyway.

I don't see the DC-9s in that notice. Will they still be around for much longer in their fifth decade of service for AC (60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s)?

I agree that something has to be in the works either for more RJs or Q-series to replace the RJs going to the regionals and the F-28 retirements.
