Air Canada Update

Sun Oct 17, 1999 11:59 pm

Star Alliance members Lufthnsa and United have confirmed that they will financially back Air Canada against the Onex offer. However, SAS has confirmed that they will have very little, if any financial involvement in the merger.

In other news an AirBC BAE-146 was delayed in Winnipeg the other day because a passenger, (an Australian professor) made a joke about a bomb on board. The captain said that they could not push back due to a security breach on another plane. The man was escorted off, they searched the luggage and found no bomb, he was fined $500. The flight was headed to Denver and was delayed about an hour.
