Re: Recall timeline

The reality is that... The covid vaccination is being reported as possibly being available this time next year. So, in reality, possibly early 2022; and then will go to front line workers first, and will probably not make it's way through a good portion of the world population until the end of 2023...

Re: Cargo TA

Follow up to date recommendations from your local health unit. Stop being stupid idiots arguing about why experts are wrong.

Re: The Return to Normal?

The Liberal and Ford Governments and their media puppets have done a masterful job in stoking fear among Canadians. There is a real "casedemic" right now, with relatively few deaths. Nearly zero deaths with no co-morbid or underlying health issues. (like being near the normal time of deat...

Re: Air Canada is in bad shape

For those who are unfamiliar Jetz aircraft are A319's configured for charters (the Canadian NHL teams and Blue Jays). Obviously they aren't being flown right now and this is an interesting, and fairly low risk test. The loads are going to be light regardless, why not maximize yield? I flew on a Jet...

Re: Potential Airline Bailout

Bums in the seats is what will save your airlines nothing else will. Governments of all levels and political persuasions need to make that happen. Certainly no sign of that here in Atlantic Region as of yet.

Re: Save Canadian Aviation March in Ottawa Oct 20th

How about as Canadians we stick up for each other as a whole and drop the special treatment business. A lotta folks are hurting out there and need help... Couldn’t agree more. Yes, aviation is hurting badly but will survive in some shape or form, rest assured. Many small business owners that I know...

Re: Westjet slashes Service to Maritimes

challenger_nami You say the closest airport to your friend that Westjet serves is 2 hours away. Can she get to her original destination through that airport? I don’t consider a 2 hour drive a hardship. She does not drive. So now she has to take a cab to get to the other airport which is 250 kilomet...

Re: Westjet slashes Service to Maritimes

If they are going to throw up a barrier, that being an inter provincial 14 day provincially mandated quarantine, then this is simply a logical economic response from a company that is there to make money. If the route isn't profitable, it closes. Simple. The rest of the noise is political bluster. ...

Re: Westjet slashes Service to Maritimes

Westjet has every right to cancel flights to whatever destination that does not make them profit. HOWEVER, they have to do it responsibly. A person I know, booked a westjet flight for Nov 15th from one of the cities in Atlantic to one of the cities in the west , and BACK. the $700 ticket was purcha...

Re: Porter Airlines shifts restart of flights date to June 29

I would argue it will be a 2022-23 time frame before you see any kind of stability in the airline/leisure/travel industry. What those industries and participants will look like from there is a good guess.

Re: Porter Airlines shifts restart of flights date to June 29

I hate to say it but I think Porter is done. This Wu Flu crap is going to continue into 2021 and there is no way an airline can sustain a 1+ year shutdown. The planes will need a ton of maintenance if they don’t fly for a year and even if employees are laid off that’s a huge expense. Not trying to ...

Yup. Who would be stupid enough to book their Xmas 2020 travel on a company that has extended their flight cancelation window 5 times? Book WJ or AC. Right? I just looked up a couple flights in December, Porter vs. AC, literally $1 difference. I know people are motivated by price, but I don't think...

Re: Trudeau Throne Speech.. any comprehensive support for aviation?

Hmmm, has the airline industry fully reimbursed its passengers that had their flying cancelled? I know in Europe they are required to, at which point the various governments supoorted the airline industry. Real world example of a person I ran into last week. Pre-covid, booked flight for 6500 to Can...
