Currently driving a 15 Jetta 2.0 NA with a 5 speed stick. Looking to replace it late this year. Leaning toward a new Golf GTI Rabbit, Honda Civic SI or maybe a Jetta GLI (stick of course) sadly neither the GTI or the GLI come in the nice blue I love and have on my current car. I will say its annoyi...Jump to post
WestJet moved one of their Max's yesterday from YLW to YVR. As mentioned above, ferry flights happen all the time.Jump to post
Let us be realistic, I have not been on a good AC branded flight in decades. The last one was business class to Beijing and the staff were all ex Canadian and that is over 12 years ago. Since that time I avoid AC like the plague, taking BA to Europe, CX to Asia and either DL or AA to the US. If I n...Jump to post
Wow, I thought he was much older than 70. I don't know much about him so I'll assume he was a good enough person. But I do think he was a little narcissistic with naming three airlines after himself. That was just weird. Pretty common thing to name a business after your name in Germany. I'd assume ...Jump to post
Curious as if having to make "unscheduled" fuel stops has anything to do with this?
Because it gives many people hope and fulfillment in their lives. You don’t have to agree with it, you don’t have to understand it, no one is asking you to. A bit like playing the lottery, you get hope that you'll win money and that it will fulfill your needs and I guess you still have to think its...Jump to post
Union Shop I work for allows shift and AV trades, the company understands that sometimes you need a certain day off or a different week off than you got for your AV sign up. But its capped, you are only allowed so many shift/AV trades per year, they must be publicly posted and if one penny exchanges...Jump to post

Swoop has, thus far, avoided any overlap with mainline markets. But both Swoop and WestJet operate YEG-YWG and YEG-LAS. WS originally axed their YEG-LAS flight when WO announced their service. Not sure why WS reinstated the service, maybe because RV started the same service this past season? WS ser...Jump to post

Really? SEA and SAN are the two largest US MARKETS not served nonstop from YUL. Maybe so, but SEA only has seasonal service to YYC on AC. Just because it’s a large market unserved, doesn’t mean there is a huge market for an airline to service it. AC still serves SEA extensively from YVR and at mini...Jump to post
Sorry LMFNINJA, the original meaning of this post was quite clear. 'First class equipped,' aside from perhaps some missing hyphens, is pretty evidently a reference to the type of classes configured within the aircraft. That assessment is also correct. Aside from EK, LX and a few other exceptions, m...Jump to post

a) Westjet is too reminiscent of the airline's origins. I understand they've invested a lot in their brand but the name may not reflect an international carrier. Other than a handful of people on these boards, nobody in the real world really cares about an airlines name reflecting it being an inter...Jump to post
Hey! So I'm now in my mid 20s and never had a girlfriend. I always tried to put myself out there and got rejected and friendzoned every time so it never really worked out :( Also having special needs makes it more challenging.

WS can expand all they want in YUL, they'll fail. Quebecers dislike things from Alberta, well, except their equalization paymentsJump to post
So this was all an issue of hand held devices and had nothing to do with being slow on the bridge and rubbernecking? Seems to me to only be a money making item then for the police.

Call me a negative person. But I always have two concerns: 1, Should you really spend time with your relative while your relative really should concentrate on working to serve 150X6=900 passengers in the day.

Is Abbotsford in BC a good comparison for Red Deer? It is about 65 km from Vancouver. Abbotsford itself is 140,000 people, but the airport being closer to Vancouver can actually suck in some Vancouver traffic. Abbotsford has YVR to the west and thats it and is about an hour drive when traffic is li...Jump to post
Bottom line is this, if Red Deer was such a hot market, other airlines would already be there, but the reality is that even AC just pulled out. Can it be done? Sure, if the airline offers the right product at the right price. Can it be successful? We'll have to wait and see.Jump to post
Hamilton, London, Kitchener & Windsor.

I wonder if Westjet or Sunwing would add a x1 weekly sun destination service in the winter from Red Deer? Westjet does a seasonal Comox, BC and Prince George, BC to Puerto Vallarta, both of those cities and surrounding areas have far less population than Red Deer. Sunwing also does the same in Vict...Jump to post
Pretty genius idea, at least in theory but the reality is pretty risky. YQF is literally smack dab in the middle of both YYC and YEG and just over an hour's drive from both. If the prices and destinations were appealing enough, they'd be able to lure in 3 markets. But that's the thing, the prices ha...Jump to post

No person ever needs that amount of money, let alone can deal with it out of the blue.
Why do you suggest YYC - LHR when they don't fly to Lhr? What is the obsession with all routes must lead to Lhr? Do you not know they use Lgw, did you not do any research? Is that really necessary?
