Re: Boeing to Restart Washington State Aircraft Production

Just keep in mind - the CDC told healthcare workers that a bandana was acceptable if nothing else is available. This was no doubt done to reduce liability for the hospital's - not to actually protect the employees.

Re: Which Air Canada's aircraft are being parked?

Was C-FDQQ one of the A320's that was parked earlier this year to preserve flighttime for the summer sked? I know they parked a few A320's as they were coming up on heavy checks, and they needed them for the summer with the MAX still being unable to fly.

No, the Max is not dead at AC. We are in the process of installing millions of dollars worth of dual HUD's in each aircraft. All 737 pilots are undergoing HUD training in our two simulators in Toronto as we speak. If we were getting rid of them, I see this as adding little value to the frames, as f...

Sometimes (especially with landing fees) the fees/taxes are paid based on the number of seats on the aircraft. Thus, it doesn't matter whether you were on the plane or not, the airline is being charged the fees associated with that seat.
