There are currently only 18 MAX in service! So that means, so far, that all are ETOPS.
Does anyone know if they're all ETOPS equipped? I only ask as the latest one, C-FSOI still hasn't been to Heathrow despite having been delivered last June. We used to see two dedicated A319s as they were the only ones with the life rafts for long over water flights (apparently), are AC going to hav...Jump to post
Given the angle at which the bag hits the diagonal slide, this seems like perfectly normal handling of bags. In this new age of “recreational outrage”, people love stiring the pot for nothing.
I pack my bags knowing there will be a certain degree of “handling” during the journey.
I am fairly certain they will do inflight tests with one or both wings folded. From the dimensions of the wing being folded, it almost looks like a winglet, not much surface area.Jump to post
Doesn’t it specify on the self serve machine/ customs card that you must declare all foreign food/fruits? And that failure may cause fines/penalties if caught?
Seems like a non event story here. It’s like being caught speeding, you were in control, stop blaming everyone else.

And if you DO have insider knowledge and trade financial instruments based on that knowledge... well it's a federal crime of one flavor or another depending on the specifics.

Make sure you buy insurance in case the airline folds. Canada doesn’t have the market for an additional airline if past history is any indicator.Jump to post
Subsidy, selling the planes for a fraction of the price, selling ur soul because of incompetence. Are you really serious about the fair competition or ur just anti-Boeing?

I have to agree it one of the greater flaws of a publicly traded company as opposed to a company that is privately held. A single owner actually ensures the long term viability and had pride in his/her company. Now it’s just from one quarter to the next, making sure earnings per share is higher than...Jump to post
20 year old 319’s going head to head with 3 year old -800’s. That’s like taking a pen knife to a gun fight. When it comes to low cost market travelers, they can be flying on 1970 Boeing 707 missing one engine and couldn’t care less. If the ticket is 5 dollars cheaper than the competition, they’ll h...Jump to post
There is little public support for further government funding into Bombardier. I think given the real estate prices reaching their peak in Toronto, it is a wise decission to sell the land and get more capital and allocate it appropriately elsewhere.Jump to post
Yes they have made tons of money, after decades of government bail outs. Remember the $922 million bailout not so long ago? Also just because you're making tons of money does that mean that you should treat your customers like crap? Im sorry, what bail out is this? That superwoman video is old and ...Jump to post
And you believe that the CS300 has a large advantage over the A319? The operating difference is small, the CS300 acquisition price is now an issue, and there's no commonality for existing A320 family operators. Also, no offense, but I find it insane to think that Airbus will kill off the A320 for a...Jump to post
This is a video of a A330 doing a flapless landing. It can be a quite a firm landing with the requirement of firm braking due to high landing speed. I highly doubt yours was flapless as it would be considered abnormal.
This is not raciest and whoever suggest's that needs to get a life and quit acting like a princess. Jeez, she is joking. What happened to sense of humor. When you are on holidays and on not wearing the uniform, you can state whatever opinion you have. When you wear the uniform, you represent the co...Jump to post
Looks like Air Canada will temporarily use the extra capacity of a 777 for its direct service from YYZ to both its Mumbai and Dubai routes this coming winter.
Looking at the reservation website... Equipment change from 787 looks to begin end of October.
Jetsgo, canjet, zoom airlines.... remember those!? Canada is a small market with challenging climate and tax situation with a large territory to traverse. Will never work, past experience has shown.Jump to post
Jump to postBoeing has requested that the U.S. Commerce Department delay its preliminary determination on its petition until Sept. 25 from July 21.
I'm calling it:
A 100+ Order for c-series from an european/British carrier.
I wonder if Delta will actually be upset or be happy if they can get a better deal from Boeing if the C-series order is cancelled.Jump to post

Traffic growth of 18.9 per cent, on a system-basis, versus the same quarter in 2015
So what is the function these days of the INS if the airplane knows where it is by GPS?

Great trip report, I think WJ had some growing pains when they started this service, but looks like most of their gatwick flight are now operating on time. In terms of the onboard service, I agree, if you are going to pay for a meal, might as well be good!Jump to post
I'm surprised the Canadian media hasn't gotten hold of this, fortunately they haven't. If air canada scratched a piece of luggage during loading, it would have been breaking news.

True to fly the aircraft first. However doing the initial drill quickly after a failure, most will advise ATC (as per S.O.P's) as the aircraft simply will not stay at altitude and will drift down on single engine to a max single engine ceiling. ATC will need to know in advance before the drift down ...Jump to post
