Re: Air Canada Cutting 30 Domestic Routes, 8 Stations

Air Canada is held with distain by most Canadians. They seem to believe that they are a monopoly that is consistantly on the receiving end of taxpayer bailouts (wrong) and still Government held (wrong). AC, Westjet Transat and Sunwing are being literally strangled by the mandatory "police enfo...

If the 11 cancelled MAXs for AC are indeed all MAX9s, it is a good move as they really dont need the aircraft's additional capacity over the MAX8


Isn't it more that they don't need the capacity at all? much less from aircraft with an unsafe reputation? Good on them for ditching the Boeing Pinto.
