Re: F-15s jets harrass BEY bound Mahan Air over Syria.

Couldn't it be a Saudi F-15? The Saudis and Iranians don't have the best relations. Almost zero chance it may be Saudi. Where would it have flown from and why would it be over Syria! They do have a lousy relationship but it would be suicidal for the Saudi air force to do it without a major retaliat...

Re: Why is Air Canada mainline taking back so many Rouge routes?

Rouge is a huge success at Air Canada. Period. Some might find "huge success" a curious term given the closure of many Rouge bases and removal of many Rouge routes. I'm not saying it's not, becuase I have no inside knowledge, I just find it curious. If the Rouge model of business was such...

Re: AC vs AF on YUL-CDG

There is no doubt that the YUL-CDG market is huge on AC, AF, and TS. YUL-ORY is operated by LEVEL and other airlines as well.
