I just can't see DL expanding beyond MSP. SEA and SLC would be too thin, and DTW, JFK, and ATL all would be overflying MSP (among other reasons). I agree with you. At one time, they had 6 flights per day to MSP from Winnipeg (albeit on 50 seat jets) There are some days (like today) that now have 2 ...Jump to post

- Possible flight to KEF

I live near GFK, but really enjoy flying YWG. The terminal is nice, easy to navigate, and offers so many years more options thend my local airport. Sometimes it is even cheaper to fly from Winnipeg then GFK or FAR aftet the exchange rate conversation. For every person that goes to YWG I bet 5 come ...Jump to post
Just a correction - YYC is a hub for Air Canada, not a focus city. Also, New Leaf tried to serve YYJ, but had to drop it despite not having any competition. Still, it is now the largest un-served destination in terms of where passengers fly and having a direct flight from YWG. Halifax has, besides t...Jump to post
There's actually a great deal to do in Winnipeg (and Edmonton) in terms of festivals that you don't see in other places. There is also now a national museum in Winnipeg which draws extra people. The outdoor sites within a few hours drive Also have started to draw more people to Manitoba. This, coupl...Jump to post
That's exactly why I just booked Westjet to go to YXX. With their introductory fares, it was a no brainier to take WJ to YXX instead of YVR (OMG, they're destroying their own yield, and they won't even have expensive same day flights to Boston to make up for it /s).Jump to post

still to get transfered to Rouge are C-GSCA, C-GDUZ, C-GBZR. I believe after this they will reach their 50 a/c cap
I'm still not sure about New Leaf. Personally I don't think I would book with them, certainly not too far in advance, so maybe that says what I think. Contrary to popular belief, I firmly believe there is an LCC market in Canada, but I'm not sure about these secondary markets like YXX. I think it i...Jump to post
I really think this was a combination of price, financing, support and delivery slots that won the day for Boeing. Aircraft deals are a complex package of factors; it's not like going to the dealership and getting a Chevy on finance. Bingo. Ben Smith wrote basically the same as you on FT. Sadly, he...Jump to post
Oh...absolutely it is because of the longer flying. No question. But inherent in that is the decline in unit costs because as everyone knows. as stage length increase, unit costs decrease, (as do yields). The only way to compare airline cost structures is to compare them on an equal stage length, i...Jump to post
I think it's so funny how people are whining about 1" of seat pitch. The mainline cabins have 31" pitch in economy and the Rouge 767s have 30" pitch. The 1" isn't that huge. I will admit though that any less such as the 29" on the Rouge Airbus fleet is pushing it, but peopl...Jump to post

Back in service - even had a wheel fall off.
Not the same aircraft....
You're assuming that Air Canada won't be ordering the 787-10.Jump to post
It also bears a similarity to Icelandair and British Airways. United also actually uses a similar scheme with a two tone body and dark tail. I wouldn't read too much into the Delta angle. Huh? I'm seeing bare similarity with BA and Icelandair with the fuselage belly - not at all with the UA example...Jump to post

Pray tell, what makes this one particularly ugly? Fading and/or peeling? There were a few DLs and old battleship UAs like that after the blue tulip was introduced.
A question was asked earlier that I'm still wondering about. Someone said that the Air Canada Express livery is being completely removed from the Beachcraft 1900D airfcraft. Does that mean they will no longer be part of Air Canada's fleet and routes, or is something else happening?Jump to post
