Canadian Charter Question

Mon Feb 26, 2001 2:29 pm

Could Canadian Charters benifit from a Dash 8, or another smaller aircraft? It seems like the charters here have 732 and A319's as their smallest. Could the Dash 8 be more profitable on short hauls like YYZ- Montreal, Ottawa, etc. Does AirCanada have any competition on these shorter routes? Is there alternatives other than AC?

Can you see C3/Royal in the future having the same structure as AC, with a wide variety of aircrafts traveling to vast destinations? I guess it would make sense for C3 to just have AirBusses!!! Will they ever get an A340 or A380? Or are they just interested in older used aircrafts?


Drive it like you stole it!

Why run a Dash 8 when they're filling up 732s and A319s to their last seats? Plus, routes between YYZ,YOW and YUL deserve jet service. Put a prop on that route and that's death wish for the airline.

I posted earlier about C3 possibly starting Toronto to Seoul in the future.

It could work on connections into the big cities for people who are travelling on to various southern destinations with the company....Although they are moving away from charters ROY/CMM could lease some 8's do feed their charter flights from some of the more remote places like northern Ontario/Quebec. But it would have to be much cheaper then AC offers.

Unfortunatley the average citizen does not enjoy flying on props, no matter how modern and quiet they are. RJ or 717 would be a better choice if they are looking to go small.
