Pardon my ignorance, but what is the benefit to the NG CR9's? Will range be improved? Will the CR2's remain in the East? Would sure love to see the RJ's replacing Q's flying north of 60, but I know that's a pipe dream... CRJ NGs have a better FMS system with actual coupled VNAV and cold temp correc...Jump to post
YYZ used to get it on at least one daily rotation in the summer at the very least. YVR used to be double daily in summer, now 380 but back to the Queen for winters.Jump to post
While not surprising, this is very disappointing as a smoker. It certainly is a point I think of when booking. The only ones I'm still aware of are FRA, IAD and SLC. While I get they are nasty, smoking areas past security provide a huge stress relief to those of us who do smoke, which is clearly few...Jump to post

The thought of Bill 101 having any influence in this matter is laughable.

Apologies but I cannot figure out how to edit my original post. Moderators feel free to merge. I also believe this could be identified as a crash at this point.

I wouldn't think there would be any major impact if everyone knows what they're doing. I know QK keeps their APU running under -25 or -30 Celsius as it won't start. I have also seen heat carts applies to engines on Q400's on morning headstarts, but as far as turning in and out I wouldn't think many ...Jump to post
Like it or not, most Canadians need to fly. Especially now with Greyhound virtually gone, air may be the only practical option. Hopefully the new LCC's will provide some sort of middle ground. I can't say I've really noticed much of a difference. A 7 day advance purchase one-way YYZ - YZF last month...Jump to post

Not exactly as OP is asking, but 5T has 2 732's still in sked pax service (C-GOPW & GDPA) roughly 38 years of age. Not the oldest I'm sure, but up thereJump to post

Unless they get others, i.e. those of Primera, flights you mention will be operated by A321ceo.
As someone who lives in the North, I used 732's frequently to get down south. These birds are perfectly safe, and are a backbone for accessing some Northern communities.
Here in Yellowknife, Nolinor has a dedicated maintenence team to keep GNRD in order. You'll be fine.
7F has a large fleet of ATR's operating in the arctic without fault. It would seem any issues have been corrected.Jump to post
What's the deal with YBL and YQQ to YVR? Last I checked it was BEH, but I thought they were done with 9M?Jump to post
As pointed out, I assumed the codes were easy enough to figure out. I guess a part of me also thought if you don't understand the codes, you won't have any insight in to the matter. I don't know, maybe after 30'ish years in the business, I believe in clarity and in helping folks. I understand if th...Jump to post
While it's only rumours, I've heard 5T 's C-GOPW had an engine failure in flight and is stranded in YVQ. I have not seen her around YZF for around a week. I have tried looking for more info online however most sited require paid membership. If anyone has any further information it would be greatly a...Jump to post
Living in the north myself, this question sits heavily with me most of the time. While 5T has their 300C on the 444 / 445 run (and I believe YOW - YFB?), as mentioned they don't have gravel capabilities. I can see one of two things happening. The first of which would be improvements at airfields tha...Jump to post
YVR-YZF makes perfect sense and keep in mind AC codeshares with both 7F & 5T on the YEG-YZF run. YVR - YZF is a good route, but it certainly has it's issues in the winter. Traffic dies down too much in the summer to warrant it with the feed they have from YYC. I know for a fact 5T and 7F do not...Jump to post
LHR-YVR switched from 12 weekly 744s in summer to daily A380 since S16, as YVR isn't high-yielding enough to occupy a second Terminal 5 slot at Heathrow. A380 in summer but 744 in winter still. Apparently YVR is not high-yielding enough to occupy any T5 slots at LHR as their flight operates from T3Jump to post
Sounds like a medical! Thank you everyone! I was also curious the route of the aircraft in question. Glad to have that answer! There were several Alaska flights with 737-800 as well as Air Greenland A330. Several other charters were operated by Canadian North and First Air locally to transport teams...Jump to post
7F appear to now be stable after several years of turmoil. The 146 Summit sub-contract is in place I think until 2020 at this point. The ATR apparently replaced the 73M on the YEG-YZF-YEV route. Normal Wells was dropped a year ago. Out east, at least out of YOW, 7F appear to have taken the Celebrit...Jump to post
I would be very interested to know what is going on in the North. 5T and 7F had a codeshare agreement a while ago. That didn't go well for either of them from what I read. Where are 7F's 737's? I'm surprised YEG - YZF is being operated by Summit 146's and ATR's. 4N has announced YXY - YYJ which star...Jump to post
I can confirm TS is still operating the 310, though for how long I do not knowJump to post
From the rumours I have heard, it was to give DL at the very least more security in their arrival times in to LAX. From what I've been told, the Compass flights were often delayed under ground delay programmes as regional airlines.Jump to post
