Will that be a profitable route?

This is just a transfer of the night-time AC mainline service to Tango. This is not incremental service.

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

There are enough canadians wanting to go to LAS for trade shows and stuff like that. I think SSV and TS are making lots of money flying to LAS for less money than AC is on the main line.

I think that AC has done a good job with Tango, keep the marginal good service with the main line and make a nother airline with no service and another name to not cheapen the mainline name.....then take the new found airline and put it against routes that have competitors like SSV,WJ, TS, Jetsgo, canjet and compete well.

Air Canada is making money on CARGO . The clientle that fly AC is not the leisure traveller that fly 5G and TS.
Tango is geared to the leisure market and I am sure AC vacations will be on them as well. With Tango ,US Citizens can walk up to the counter and buy tickets cheaper then AC Mainline.
US Citizens can only go Standby on 5G and TS and cannot buy tickets LAS/YYZ/LAS as the market is for Canadians flying to LAS on Packages.
