Before open skies there was a YWG-LGA route on AC on the 727's. With open skies AC threw everything at getting critical mass in its YYZ hub. There is traffic to support a nonstop, but it is definitely split between various connections, split both by airport EWR / JFK / LGA, as well as between carri...Jump to post
I caught the first 'Her Art' livery at a gloomy GLA the other morning at first light. Arriving from EWR on what I believe was the new livery's first international sector ? No, if I remember correctly it was LIS that got that honor. Likely a Canadian airport took that honour with the 738 or Express ...Jump to post
Blueknows, do you want to buy my shares for the 27 cents I paid for them? Maybe they will go up above $1 at Christmas for no reason whatsoever like they did last year. ;) I'm now down to thinking about 5% chance they will launch. That said, I don't feel stupid for investing a small, manageable amou...Jump to post

Swoop is planning to grow their fleet from 7x 738 now to 10x 738 by year end.Jump to post
I also am keeping an eye on AA shares. Whatever financial and operational challenges that AA has (every airline has challenges), the steep drop in AA share price is beginning to make AAL a very attractive stock pick. Share price is down about 50% since January 2018. I plan to buy in the coming days,...Jump to post
AC is already highly dominant in the Canadian market, and AC Rouge and TS are direct competitors. The federal competition bureau should not allow this purchase to take place.Jump to post
If Ryanair is pulling people (who would travel anyway) out of cars and buses which pollute more (on a per capita basis), you could argue Ryanair reduces pollution, not creates it. Ultimately, the real polluters are the individual travellers themselves. Ryanair is merely providing a service which gen...Jump to post
I do not see a problem with this at all. It is completely voluntary, and both parties are presumably satisfied. Those that object are just looking to control other people. Airlines have to establish a pecking order for trip bidding, and nobody has come up with a better or fairer one than seniority....Jump to post
AA mainline will return to YYZ-ORD this summer with a 1x daily A319.
This will raise AA mainline at YYZ to 7x daily (2x 738, 5 xA319) -- 2x daily DFW 738, 3x daily MIA A319, 1x daily CLT A319 plus the ORD A319 route.
A fraction of the former AA presence at YYZ, but progress nonetheless.
According to aerotransport.org, AA has 28 M80s still in service, and all are due for retirement this year. No breakdown by aircraft by month for retirement.Jump to post

AA cancelled the daily LAX-YYZ A319 service in January. Route was initiated in 1974 and has been cancelled a couple of times over the past 45 years. I suspect this might the end of this route for AA. Does anyone know if this is seasonal or permanent? Last couple of year AA added a 2nd daily periodic...Jump to post
AA is rapidly moving from the former largest US carrier at YYZ to the smallest. The growth from DL and lately UA has been insane. UA has grown IAH and DEN especially this winter which is impressive, and have a 2x daily SFO service beginning in a couple months. They are down to only IAD and 1x daily...Jump to post
I doubt DL would add YYZ-LGA given WS has 8 737s a day on the route. If anything DL would add an LGA frequency to YUL and YOW and maybe open up a daily flight to YQB once their preclearance facility opens. Any of that would involve DL cutting something else at LGA. If the LFs on the 8x daily WS YYZ...Jump to post
Icelandair has changed the planned YYZ service for the summer, it will now be 2x daily, 1 752 and one 7M8 beginning in mid May. This is an update from the planned 11x weekly services that would have been 7x 753 and 4x 7M8. Overall capacity goes up 12%. Ah too bad we're losing the daily 753. ICE get...Jump to post
In general, even an LCC can see its costs creep up. An LCC sub, in addition to the aforementioned comments, can also be used by the LCC to test new lower cost concepts in a pilot phase without rolling it our to the entire LCC up front, to gauge its effectiveness.Jump to post
This looks like the gradual elimination of the E190 from Air Canada's fleet is starting to show. By this time next year, they will be gone. Saskatchewan is an interesting market. Personally I would have thought that, out of YYZ, Regina would be softer than Saskatoon, but, looking at next summer, I ...Jump to post
Chorus stock (CHR) enjoyed a nice bump up on this announcement, of close to 20%. The v healthy ~7% dividend is likely as firm as it can be. Happy camper here.Jump to post
Does that mean the 727s have stopped flying? When did that happen? My mistake. I based my saying on a site that doesn't list certain types, thus completely ignoring the last few still active. However, a year ago or so, I read somewhere that they were to be replaced with 757s. Also, it appears the l...Jump to post
Can we stop discussing about Germany and the UAE in this thread? This thread should be about the Q3 results.

Can someone that knows the Air Canada vis a vis Rouge model say whether Rouge is completely run on hand me downs from Mother AC or will Rouge also be free to buy used 767s as required? Or are the 767s so old that the next step defaults to older AC aircraft? 5 of Rouge's 6 A321s are actually new bui...Jump to post

Yes an improvement but a bit of a mess, the tail is confusing and the logo unrecognizable although more colourful and pops a bit more. The new logotype is weaker than the previous. Completely agree. the Maple Leaf on the tail is confusing. Also agree. The new livery is a hot mess. It's not growing ...Jump to post
I think, in fairness to this pilot, it has been forecast for some time and I would expect an order for 777Xs (most likely the -9; can't see them having much use for the -8) within the next 3-6 months. Incidentally, BA converted the order it had o/s for 2-3 789s to 788s; anyone know the logic behind...Jump to post
WS are way over their skis w/ these 789s. Flying expensive, tourist-filled jets to CDG/LGW is not a recipe for success IMO. I agree! They are going to need to really build the business traffic on these routes to make them profitable. I can't see any business traffic on YYC-DUB though. I'm still exp...Jump to post
