Re: DOH merge.

I'm not reading your report, I don't care.

You are missing my basic statement. There are a lot of what ifs on how AC integrates the companies.

Re: DOH merge.

There are many ways this could play out. It depends on how AC wants to integrate Transat AT and it's assets/operations. It might seem semantic, but AC isn't buying Air Transat, they are buying Transat AT. Transat AT is the company, not Air Transat, they are not the same thing. Have a look at the La...

Re: DOH merge.

A partnership? No it isn't. Transat is being bought pending various approvals... and they are losing money until that happens. There is no BOTL in the contract. There would be no BOTL in the event of a seniority list integration in arbitration. Any AC guys throwing that idea around are right up ther...

Re: Decent places to live in Vancouver area near transit to YVR?

I'd look for a place around Mount Pleasant or Main Street... roughly between the Main and Cambie corridors, and between approx False Creek/2nd Ave and 33rd Ave. Easy walk over to the train to YVR, lots of amenities, lots of parks, better neighborhood vibe, easy to get downtown and other parts of the...

Re: 35 people injured on AC flight.

Faulty parallelism fallacy.

Your equate:

no seatbelt at all = no shoulder harness.

You have no argument. The law is clear, and pilots use there judgment. I guarantee that the pilots on that flight didn't have their shoulder harness on and weren't injured.

Re: 35 people injured on AC flight.

PSA warning: One thing I notice most guys don't check, and we all should, is that the reel catches and locks your shoulder straps if you give it a quick tug. A landing incident will see your face into the dash if it malfunctions and doesn't lock. I've seen them U/S a couple times on planes I was to ...

I fly with pilots that routinely unhook their shoulder harnesses for whatever perceived advantage. I don't get that either.
It's just more comfortable, and as mentioned there isn't a safety advantage.

Re: This doesn’t help the bottom line

Soon passengers will link Swoop to, and it will start hurting the larger Westjet brand.

They'd be wise to drop the "safety is most important" qualification in their excuses, plan their utilisation a little less aggressively, and send a mainline fin to clean up the mess.
