Re: Corona Virus outbreak - Aviation related News and Discussion Thread

Air Canada has confirmed that a passenger aboard one of its flights from Montreal to Vancouver on Valentine's Day has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, COVID-19.

As per CBC.ca

if this is spreading in North America, I think it's fair to say that TATL will also be affected

They shouldn't have been allowed to board the first flight either. AC's inaction led to that. How would you expect AC to prevent someone from boarding a flight on another airline, exactly? There are no bigger issues. AC doesn’t want their business, and declined to board them. Sometimes things reall...
