Re: New yyz slots..this is gonna hurt!

When we go into anywhere that has slots we have a chat with the pax about how important it is that they make the time or we may have to wait an unknown amount of time. They are always very thankful that we let them know and are on time or call ahead if there is a porblem. I wonder if some people are...

Re: March 11 2013 Air Canada Incident YYZ Embraer and a Van

Weather or not i herd my full call if I was sort final and someone was calling out go-around I think its hit TOGA could have been a bigger picture that they may not know about just because the touch down area was clear. Easier to ask why did we get sent around after than a worse out-come.
