Not bloody likely. Air Transat just had a quarter of a million dollar fine for poor maintanence practices, and have been forced to shut down many of their tourism related businesses, causing thousands of layoffs and a major stock plunge. I think the only thing they will be investing in is a bankruptcy lawyer.
On a side note, the Cabotage laws prevent a canadian airline from running a service that originates in a different country, so I don't think they will be starting a route from SEA, especially when their hub is Montreal.
Lastly, Transat uses 757 and 1011s. With all of the recently mothballed 1011s from Delta, why would they invest in breand new 737s?
Correct me if I'm wrong, please.
Someday, we'll look back at this, laugh nervously, and then change the subject.
