Re: Air Canada Ending YYZ-MDT/ROC/SYR

Re: retirement of 1900s, The 1900s are still workhorses here in the Maritimes/Newfoundland, flying with EVAS on behalf of AC Express (albeit with no AC markings- I would love to see them in the new livery) handling YHZ-YFC/YSJ/YQM/YYG and YYT-YDF/YQX and even going all the way up to YYR and YWK.

Re: Taking a trip just to fly on a specific type of plane

You're not alone- my girlfriend thinks I am crazy for adding a stop in YYZ on our flight from YUL to YHZ just to try out the new AC 737max. Just part of the avgeek life :)

Re: Old livery "holdouts"

Air Canada Express/Jazz still has a few aircraft in the old multicolour leaf livery before the branding transition from AC Jazz to AC Express. I flew on a CRJ-200 in these colours back in October.

Re: Porter Q400 YYT-YHZ

Thank you for posting. Porter looks quite exceptional for a North American airline. :smile: My pleasure- glad you enjoyed! There was an article that stated that Porter's growth potential is limited. Looks like a great airline. Wow; banana bread. Impressive. I landed in Halifax from London in heavy ...

Re: Max winds recorded?

Sitting here in YYT today and it is chaotic- lived here my entire life and I've never witnessed winds like this. Absolutely astounding. Streetlights are off poles across the city, signs are knocked down- it's going to be one hell of a cleanup. Even the 2017 Brier (curling competition) going on here ...

Re: All New Saudia Livery? (PIC)

While it could do with some improvements, billboard titles as suggested earlier, overall I'm a fan! Awesome to see a modern take on a retro logo.
