RE: Westjet Gatwick Cancellations

This situation seems to also mirror Westjet's introduction of the Dash 8 Encore service...for the first little while they had an atrocious on time record, likely due to too many flight segments and too few planes to cover...if one was delayed or had technical issues the whole schedule was messed up....

RE: WOW Air: First Flight KEF-YUL Today

I watched the video and found it strange that at the 1:11 mark of the video a CRJ travels across the path of the WOW jet...is it an illusion or would that RJ have received clearance once the WOW jet was down safely?
