Well actually, It's true to say that Airtransam as a very disgusting vocabulary but...
The people who posted and said that their was nothing to alarm with are Americans... We, Canadian, proud ourselves on the quality of our Airlines as well as their maintenance practices. For most of us, 7 safety violations in 2 years are far too much, and no matter I'f it's a seat belt or an engine cowling.
Added to this, is that AT operates the most aging fleet in Canada with 14 Tristars, 8 of whom have been built between 1972 and 1975. This information is available on Transport Canada's Website at www.tc.gc.ca. You can also find all maintenance violations, a/c safety records as well as a/c hours and cycles.
Have a look at a/c cycles and other things on Transat a/c on TC's website and compare it With Canada 3000 or Air Canada. This should change your view of AT, and you might think that Air Canada is not so bad in term of safety compared with AT. But the thing is, they've got 350 planes. Air Transat has 24.
