Re: "COVID pricing" for aircraft sales?

Is it just me, or does the current market for aircraft seem ridiculously overinflated? Is this an effect of COVID and people wanting to do more socially distanced activities (like flying?) Last spring I was looking as a cash in hand buyer and made the decision to do some home renos instead, and bum...

Re: Calin is retiring February 2021

On the other hand: you're absolutely correct that responsibility for 200 – 300 souls on board means that the stakes in...

Re: Terrible news for the Air Canada work force...

Just an interesting observation. China has 17% of the world population yet only 1.7 % of reported infections. So, how the f%^k did they manage to only have 1/10 of everyone else in a country that has massive cities with major population densities. Some things are definitely not adding up. I think w...
