Re: Beginning of Transat wave?

Good thing you're not running WS and sending 787s in the South of France to compete with TS 321LRs. Then again, I wish you were! Good thing you don't have anything to do with business. What socialist's like you can't comprehend , is the concept of critical mass. WS has an amazing feed system which ...

Yyz at first it is for the time being
Then you get to move to yul once your seniority gets there.

Re: Classic Dash replacement??

I have to agree with Hansdietrich. I flew , to be exact , 1410 flights on the classic at Jazz. While most the guys made it a blast and i had some serious great times, past the initial excitement i truly didnt enjoy the aircraft. The summer you are sweating on the ground, the winter you are freezing....

Alot of bleach. Fill up your washing machine just with white shirts. When the water is full for the old style machines or half way thru its fill up with the new front loading type, add about 1/2 liter of bleach. I wash my 6 shirts all at once and they come out impeccable. Also i change a shirt once ...

Re: Crash at Iles-de-la-Madeleine

I ve only ever flew the marquise.

however the first difference that comes to mind between a short mu2 and the marquise is that on a short you cann add an extra fuel tank in the back. so that would increase your range. And also help with weight and balance issues.
