Re: Nolinor Aviation Starts New Airline

In regards to tech stops. If the tickets are cheaper than competitors, low yield passengers don’t really care.

That's it based on the business drop? Not that I want more.....
This is based on a partial recovery next year. Lots of down training beginning soon and this takes up to 12-18 months to complete.

Looks like AC will issue new shares and debt to raise around a billion.

Don't read too much into it .. it's just posturing. The final decision rest with Garneau and the government .. he approved the Canadian North/First Air merger and that deal did create a monopoly. I have a feeling this deal is going to get the green light as a measure to help the health of the indus...

The house of cards that is excessive covid restrictions will topple.

Curious as to the future of Rouge. The announcement said that all the 767 and 319 are to be permanently removed. That leaves only the 321's? Are Rouge pilots flying mainline planes now? (for what little flying there is)
Yes all Rouge pilots will become mainline.

Re: 79 Airplanes Retired

So am I correct in understanding that any RP will not be entitled to a RIR because any position they move to is an upgraded position? Therefore, even if the company offered the RP position in the future, the original RPs would have to no RP CR except UR CR to make the move back? This would open it ...

What is the pilot total now? 79 airplanes is a lot. I know some new ones are coming but this is really bad. Won’t be any hiring for a few years.
Won't expect a full recovery for at least 3 years.

Re: Lufthansa May file for bankruptcy

Airlines, specially in Canada, are probably the most hated industry no matter where you live in Canada. Doesn’t help airlines refuse to refund tickets for cancelled flights and give credits instead.

The CEWS is probably the better way to bail out companies undercover.

Re: 737 Cancellations

At this point, Boeing might have to just give the airlines the aircraft that are already made for free given the next set of delays for the pandemic. Might be cheaper than storing or trying to resale.

My conspiracy theory is that AT is just doing what AC told them to do.
Could be also AT board members just thinking its a done deal, and just hand AC the bag and let them deal with it.

Or it’s a company that foresees a merged list shortly and doesn’t want to commit Ac pilots to positions it doesn’t need filled?
