Re: Air Canada NS21 International service changes

I don't understand what the problem with Air Canada is. It is a cosy duopoly in a rich nation. From the friends I have, I also hear YUL to GRU is loss making ego route of the bosses. I also surprise they do not go to more places from YYZ or add frequency.

Re: TAP Portugal News and Discussion Thread

Very good additions for TAP. I think this actually shows government is not running the show as additions from Lisbon hub, and not some unsustainable OPO strategy as SCQ83 said . I really keep saying their network team finally has a strong vision and they seem to be building around it.
