While not airline related, I work for a company which is heavily RV orientated in the US, and they definitely saw a huge dip in both rentals and sales during March, April and May, but since then they have seen rentals and sales exceed 2019 in month-on-month figures. Leisure spending is coming back,...Jump to post

You assume Chinese tourists and students will be welcomed back with open arms, which not guaranteed post-Covid. Oh they will be, by those who's livelihood depend on it. Everyone else's opinion can take a back seat. Canadian public opinion of China has followed a similar to trajectory to the America...Jump to post

Chinese tourists are very fickle and tend to "recoil" at any sort of negativity. Since the West has handled the pandemic worse than the East, from the viewpoint of Asians, it's likely that the majority of Chinese tourists will avoid going to the West anytime soon. Of course it will be che...Jump to post
I don't know how their CA is worded, but if its like the one where I work, if you take a leave of absence vs a lay off, you are still "employed" by the company for that term, your seniority stays the same but you are free to work elsewhere if choose to.

You have a point for the first booking but not for "repeaters". I am pretty sure that people who were annoyed of sitting in a Rouge plane when booking via AC.com, would check closer the second time.
Anything is better than Rouge. Undoubtedly the most hated Canadian airline. According to who? That’s why they had 85-90% load factors... Not to mention a repeat rate in the high 80s. People love to complain, especially on this site but when booking a flight, cheapest wins every time. Clearly Rouge ...Jump to post
Curious as too if WestJet will apply for another CEWS for this round of layoffs as well.

I've owned several standard models over the years and didn't find shifting particularly manly or particularly thrilling.

The vast majority of Americans. I have both, auto in the big car and manual in the small one. The auto in the big car is a twin clutch unit with paddle shift so you can have fun with it as well.

Do you find yourself changing the position of your mirrors or steering wheel much? If so, I think you are an outlier.

Most non-essential businesses have been forced closed other than restaurants, but they only offer take away. Grocery stores are hit and miss for products, idiots are still hoarding.

Well after reading about the promotion I gave it a whirl. I am thinking it has been at least 3 years since I had beckoned the doors at McD. I ordered the double Big Mac. They do put double sauce and double lettuce on the burger as well as double meat but only one cheese. Basically with all extra sa...Jump to post
No, they shouldn't.
If one is so paranoid about cleanliness of public areas, bring your own wipes/gel and stop expecting everyone else to provide it for you.

In the close to half century I've been flying, I've amassed thousands of inflight pictures, never been questioned or approached once by anyone, even on the dreaded American Airlines.
