I am away and missed most of this till today. A few notes for all of you to ponder with -
1. The departure of Mr. Collins should not be read as 'negative'. Do remember HQ
now has Mr. Henderson, who used to be Vice Chairman of Jim Patterson Group. Anyone in BC
can tell you that who can work for Mr. Patterson successfully is no small potoato.
2. C-GTSN is an odd-ball among HQ
's B757s, and letting the lease finish is not really a bad move. When you are down to three aircrafts, adjustment in schedule has to be made.
3. May I ask many of you to read more 'in-between' or 'behind' the lines - such as why the schedule is preliminary. Be a little more positive perhaps ? May be 'New aircrafts take time to arrive' ?!
are always seasonal anyway, these will likely be back on in the winter to Hawaii. For YYC
it is a toss-up now, as the market response needed more indepth review.
4. The code share with Air Pacific will benifit HQ
year-round to HNL
, giving its most profitable route a major backup during low season. Please again consider if HQ
's major route (HNL
) is already profitable, then burdens from the two other destinations can be substained if HQ
don't venture too 'far away'.
Get hold of the latest issue (March, 2007) of Airways, it has an article on HQ
in it. Read the part about Dr. Ho's financial and objective, then consider again down by one aircraft may not as bad as what it looks like on the surface.
