Worth noting it's an election year in Canada and Quebec is key to staying in power. Handouts will follow. Well played Mr Balducchi.

People need to get ahold of themselves. The ask was to cover up a little during feeding. Completely reasonable. YOWza Not reasonable at all, especially on a stuffy airplane.

Can anyone shed some light on what's going on with this new 747-400 operation out of St Vincent and the Grenadines? This seems extremely ill advised or like a front for moving big money around and avoiding scrutiny. Maybe our friends from the Caribbean can chime in. https://news784.com/local-news/74...Jump to post

Almost certainly not. I'm very much in the camp that WN is Boeing through and through and that it will take a huge swing to change that. With that said how much of their future can they tie to a single - possibly flawed - type. Let's say the MCAS issue isn't resolved till April 2020, then what? At ...Jump to post

This is what I was afraid of. I thought Eastern only had 767's too but my new confirmation is showing me on a 738 operated by Eastern. I guess I will have to call them.
YYZ-PUJ May 11. The WG flight I was on has been changed from a 06:15 departure on their own metal to a 09:15 operated by Eastern.

Looking at Varadero Today. these are the departures. I'm curious why flights to the same destinations often seem clustered around the same time. For example Sunwing has 2 flights leaving within 5 minutes of each other to Halifax and two at the same time to Toronto. Why not spread them apart instead...Jump to post

Because of the US embargo, Cuba can't really draw much from the US in terms of tourism and because of the same embargo procuring the types of goods needed for true luxury resorts/hotels to draw people from further afield can't happen. That leaves Canada and Latin America to draw from. A good portion...Jump to post
Between direct services on AC metal and the raft of one stop options I can't imagine it would be a huge priority for Indian carriers at this stage. That said if 9W goes belly up I suspect AI will eventually take another stab. I'm convinced that AC could make BLR work as long as they time it well wit...Jump to post
I believe Italy is unusual in that it requires the aircraft to be registered in the country of ownership, rather than operation.

A constant risk of getting stuck between Hamas rockets and Iron Dome always exists in Israel.

Yowza the one thing you seem to be forgetting is that those countries you cited are all much smaller in land mass with denser populations. As much as I want more choice (I miss Wardair, CP etc) we have to recognize that there are unique challenges to operating in Canada. I grant you that we have so...Jump to post

I don't want to get caught in the "I'm better at geography than you" game but for me YYZ makes the grade. HNL is in Oceania so it ticks that box. ADD is now direct and so it ticks that box.

I haven't seen this advertised anywhere. It's hard to see this being a big earner for SA. Gan is quite sparse in terms of resorts and doesn't have any of the high end stuff that would ordinarily draw wealthy South Africans so this is not likely to last.

I've got to imagine that recent success in India has AC looking at other markets in the region. I think a YVR-BLR service timed to receive feed from SFO, SJC, and SEA could be a possibility. I would imagine both DAC and CCU have also been looked at ex YYZ.
It's crazy to see how much Norwegian plays in the market which a few short years ago would have been 100% unthinkable. Do, however, spend a few seconds to examine the doublespeak.

Maintaining a tiny specialized (sub-)fleet for the purposes of serving a trio of routes is usually a poor idea especially when yields are not super high on said routes.

That's quite the the step down in YVR. I'm not sure I expected that. Does the entry of Swoop out of YXX factor into this? I do recall seeing YXX-YEG for $9 advertised somewhere but that aside I don't see much cannibalization happening. I suspect AC will also take a little bit of capacity out of sele...Jump to post

On the other hand, they may have gotten wind that a 'competitor' was looking into acquiring or partnering with Aeroplan.

Given the constraints at YTZ I'm surprised AC and/or PD haven't started moving to the 82 seat config. I suspect the short hop market could stomach 30"; after all WG shuttles people to the Caribbean with 29" seating. 28" may be a bridge too far in Canada.
