It all goes back to feeding the hub. The more passengers Delta can get transiting through SEA, the better off they will be.

From the damage I'd guess front of truck hit nose, spin hit prop and back of truck spun into tail. The front of the truck is facing away from the plane with damage to the cab area. Plane probably yawed right from first impact and made hte second impact. My guess anyways... Also can't quite read the...Jump to post

It’s going to be embarrassing for the whole world when the accident cause is unrelated. It will not be embarrassing for anyone.

Porter joining Aeroplan is useless for Western Canada. The talk about getting OneWorld carriers onboard is similarly useless for those not in major markets (e.g., YYJ where I am).
Going to apply for an RBC WestJet card and collect one last Aeroplan reward before dumping that credit card.
Porter has a better chance now than they did before Ford was elected premier. Toronto voted for Ford in that election, and if the city elections in October go the same way, then the odds of Porter getting jets will get a bit better. PCs won 11 seats in Toronto while NDP/Liberals won 15. The seats w...Jump to post

Interesting. Maybe this explains the frequency downgrade on BEG-JFK.

YYZ-Tokyo is twice daily, one each to HND and NRT. The latter route has a stopover in YYC as of this year, due to AC launching YUL-NRT and utilizing YYZ-NRT's slot.
