Re: Shaw Cable

The sign was likely taken down for ease the number of complaints they receive from customers when they're constantly jacking their TV & Internet fees up while having a very visible corporate flight department.

Re: Airbus A-310 Overwing Emergency Exit Question

It has been removed before flight. They are just storing the pin there until it goes back into the slide disarm mechanism at the end of the flight. Absolutely correct, the pin is stored in another hole during closing and flight, the plastic guard is then closed over. After landing the disarm lever ...

Re: US Airways Express boots blind pax and dog

This is just another example of what it takes to keep an airline flying or not. Blind adherence to rules and regulations is cold comfort when the pooch gets screwed. It just points to a lack of operational and social intelligence on the parts of the sticky operatives. The FA ignored the potential d...

Sadly, for me I likely will never fly in or out of XD ever again, I expect my last flight happened in the fall of 2010 when I flew a CRJ900 in there after YEG was down due to fog. It was fun bringing the 900 in there and wondered if I managed to piss-off any of the closure supporters. I remember fir...
