Looks like a neat airline. Hope Air Canada doesn't swallow them up like they did Canjet. Unfortunately if I ever get to fly them it will be a long time, since I'm in the US and it'll be awhile before I get to go to Canada.
Anyways, about the Mad Dogs (MD-80s). I know you guys in Canada aren't very used to them, but we get a whole lot of them in Kansas City. I'd be willing to bet that probably 20-40% of our flights are operated with MD-80 aircraft. Vanguard is, as many of you know transitioning to an MD-80 fleet of 13-16 aircraft, American flies almost entirely MD-80s to DFW, STL, and ORD, Delta flies a large number of their 20+ flights to ATL, CVG and SLC with MD-80 and MD-90 aircraft, Midwest Express operates three MD-80s to MKE in addition to their DC-9 ops to 7 other cities, and a couple or three of the USAirways flights are operated by MD-80s in the old colors, I believe mainly to CLT. They've never struck me as a noisy aircraft, of course when I've been able to compare them to other planes it's been against some of the surprisingly large numbers of DC-9s and 727s we used to, and still do get, although the majority of flight ops here at MCI are done with 737s, MD-80s and a few A320s, A319s, and 757s.
