KLM resumed service in July. Good thing at that too, since 3 months of 0 intl pax would be embarrassing, especially when YYC is still 1 of only 4 airports in the whole country that can accept flights from Europe and Asia.

Tell a CRJ to accelerate to 300 kts+ in climb, and it would do so in heartbeat, while still climbing at 2,000 or 3,000ft/min. Have you tried that with an ERJ ?
