I agree, Canada definitely needs another major, or at least someone else to start running international service, for no other reason than to give people another choice besides Air Canada. I hate getting railroaded into flying with them, its something of a pet peeve.
I'm curious to see how this new airline "Zoom" does against AC
. Apparently they are set to do scheduled service to Glasgow and London (Gatwick) from Ottawa, Halifax, Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary. They also intend to offer charter service to Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Cuba, the US, Jamaica, T&T, Grenada and Barbados. Fares are pretty reasonable too, about $500-600 CAD r/t to LGW
. Service is set to begin may 2004 I believe.
Has anyone heard anything else about these guys?
Cheers - Skytrain.
