Re: Skyleasecargo RWY excursion at YHZ

Not sure if it was a factor but the CAT II ILS for runway 23 has been unserviceable for quite some time now.

Glad the crew were ok for the most part.
YHZ is always a challenge, with it's less than favourable visibility, often strong rain and tricky winds.

Re: AC Makes A Pass On Their B787 Options

Complaints on the MAX at AC have been primarily from pilots and cabin crew. Pilots coming from the Airbus are finding a step-back in terms of automation and flight deck ergonomics. Cabin crew are having a tough time dealing with the lavatory configuration as well as the lack of space to fit a garbag...

Re: Air Canada Express : Cabin refresh soon?

Jazz dash 8-100s begin retiring next year, along with the CRJ-200s, though those might remain in service at a different carrier for AC. There is a push to expand 76 seat flying in the group, while maintaining roughly the same fleet sizes. It's likely that they place a couple more orders forn76 seat...

Air Canada Express : Cabin refresh soon?

Good day all! With the AC mainlines fleet of A330's now receiving the new long-haul cabin similar to that of the 777 and 787, and with the 320 and E190 ont the way out, I'm curious as to when and if their regional fleet will undergo some type of refresh. Many E175's, RJ's and Q400's have been repain...

Re: Protocols for disposing of food waste after flights?

It always hurts me to see the amount of food and beverage items that are wasted at the end of each flight. As cabin crew, I usually tend to empty all opened juice cartons into a 2L water bottle and take it home to use personally. Unfortunately, due to health and contamination concerns, the protocol ...
