A300 was a regular at LGA. But the A330 and 777 have never visited. But I seem to remember that Eastern couldn't operate the A300 at LGA when it was new (a slap in the face since it intended to use it on the Air Shuttle). Something about the narrow track of the main landing gear creating too small ...Jump to post

158 seat 737-400’s operating as an LCC/ULCC in Canada. There is no possible scenario, at any fuel price, that makes this a viable business plan. Even Flair figured that out.

I have a very hard time believing scope requirements will not be changing with re-negotiations post-COVID restructuring. The E2-175 will end up as a regional jet.

Depends if they were owned or leased. If the latter they maybe didn't like the leasing charges.

YOW-YFC is the only DH1/3 route I can think of where AC responded to a competitor by switching to a CRJ shortly after PD launched the route.

YTS is still operational too. Means they’ll probably keep a pair of YYZ-based DH3s active. They could easily combine the two as YYZ-YSB-YTS, they can't have enough load to need more than 25 seats to each, and the YSB stop is no detour off the normal YYZ-YTS non-stop routing.
