Re: Swoop announces YEG-SAN, YXX-SAN

Really pleased to see YEG-SAN. In general, Southern California is not well served from YEG and this should do well. Kind of surprising that WS has not turned PSP into Swoop yet.

Re: The “new” Flair Airlines coming Feb 13th

Doesn't appear they are doing so well in turning around their customer service experience. Apart from their fleet issues, a huge impact is the limitations of their I.T. system. If you read some of the reviews, there is a clear disconnect, lack of I.T infrastructure and/or funding that is needed for...

Re: Middle East Airlines (MEA) decision next month: Airbus A330-900neo or Boeing 787-9

MEA may not fly to YUL, NYC, or SYD anytime soon....but I think their need for larger aircraft has to do with their dependency on flying slot restricted airports such as LHR and to CDG where they rely on connecting their pax onwards. It may not be feasible to fly multiple dailies where connections m...
