Re: Air Transat to gradually resume flights from July 23rd

For all the reasons outlined in earlier posts they will be operating flights with abysmal load factors. Consequently they will lose money on every flight thus contributing to the ultimate collapse of their share price. Air Canada will be happy to watch Transat evaporate as the EU regulators dither. ...

Re: WestJet 248 Off the Runway at YHZ

And still ONLY those airports? As well as the Cat II airports......like YHM, YHZ, YMX, etc. Remember, there are not a lot of “major” airports in Canada. But, IMO, it is the lack of ILS approaches at YHZ that is the real issue. Almost every other airport in the maritimes has an eastern ILS approach....
