Will Air Canada Ever Have PTV's In Economy?

Thu Jun 28, 2001 11:05 pm

Hi everyone!
I haven't started a Topic for a month or about so Hope this is gonna be interesting. Some answers about the PTV's questions... And Air Canada is cutting 1 billion and I think that they aren't just cutting employees to have such a drastic cut in their budget? Do service quality will decrease? Or, are they looking for a place to crash?

Oh, and I've got a question for Torontonians on this web site. As I'm a maniac, I'm doing all the way from Ottawa (by car) to T. O airport this weekend only to watch the planes 'cause YOW can be very boring some times. Not at YYZ! So usually, I watch them land in a big free space on Dixie Rd. or while they are rotating in the T. O airport MARRIOTT backyard. (That's where I'm sleeping too. So I'f the wind is not on the right side, is there another place as good as Dixie Rd. for watching? Thanks for your help!

Regards, SafeFlyer Smile

On Airports Rd. in the Boeing Parking lot, there are also a lot of spots on the roads off of Derry rd. on the north end, and on Silver Dart Drive which is at the threshold of 24R.

As to the PTV's, what for?? None of their Competition has them.

PTV's cause it gives you a wider choices of programs.
Every major carrier (or nearly on long-hauls) have PTV's.
AC as competetion on London flights (BA and Virgin offers PTV's, Air France on the CDG flight (I'm not sure),
Olympic to Athens, I'f Olympic as PTV's in economy on A340 I don't know why can't AC upgrade their aircrafts for higher customer sastifaction.

Well, thanks Slawko for the spots, very helpful.

Well I think this is a typical case of no competition - no progress.
