Re: Confirmed: Air Canada to buy Air Transat

AC can offer $50 a share if they want and get Transat’s shareholders approval of the same but it means nothing until the regulators have had their say and have laid out the terms and conditions of the merger. It’s an election year. It may take a while. There’s no urgency as Transat is very much a g...

Re: Indian Constitution - Proposal to revoke Article 370 - J&K to no longer have special status

I sympathize with the argument that the change to a law that affects a particular region should be done only after consultation with people of the region. This is logical thing to do for most 'normal laws' of governance in a normal state of affairs. However, conditions in Kashmir are far from norma...

Re: Mom, daughter kicked off Air Canada plane, not told they're banned from airline until it was too late

AC did not directly sold her the new tickets for the Aug04 flights, as they wouldn't help her at all for 2 days. And by Air Canada own's admission, anyone can buy TKT online, but it is only at CKIN that ID is provided. So her denied boarding happened in FRA while trying to board AC flight. She will...

Did LH receive and not act? Decisions to ban passengers are not made by CSAs/FAs or anyone even remotely associated with custo...
