Re: AC in the News Again

http://www.cbc.ca/beta/news/canada/calgary/toddler-sat-in-pee-air-canada-grandmother-says-1.4166122 Wow it seems people are no longer able to think for themselves. It's always someone else's fault! This is just rediculious. From top to bottom, Air Canada never ceases to amaze me. Now, lets prepare ...

Re: Westjet bumps pax after launching ad campaign that it doesn't

The last two two times I was on an air Canada this year that had a maintenance issue, both were less than 2 hour delay and replaced with an aircraft same size or larger. Pretty small inconvenience must say I was pleasantly surprised at how fast we were all deplaned and switched to another machine. ...

Nice try Gravol. Please don't hijack this thread. It's about Westjet bumping the poor underprivileged youth bike racing team. Weather? Where? Probably down gauged for an anemic load.

Re: Westjet bumps pax after launching ad campaign that it doesn't

Nice try. Westjet screwing up the logistics / routings / schedule of a biking team does not make their business strategy or commercial false :D . As per the story, Westjet did NOT bump passengers as a result of a disgraceful overbooking business practice. The original AC was not available for reaso...

Re: Westjet cabin incident, good thing it wasn't United or AC

No airline has a 100% customer satisfaction rate. No airline is perfect, nor will they ever be perfect. No airline can hire or screen 100% "no fault" employees Where does this leave us? I will fly with the airline who has delivered reliable and consistent product as per my subjective experience. If ...

On a side note, a new low for the CBC. Uploading an amateur video showing the deceased pilot in the wreckage. I'm delighted my tax payer dollars fund such incompetence.

Save the speculation and inferiority complex malfunctions for another day. Many family and friends just woke up to very tragic news and it's going to be a very difficult season for them.

Re: F-35 can't take the F-16 in a dog fight?

Those who know about the F-22 won't talk about it too much... And that's what peaks my curiousity. Is it not living up to expectations? Is it a shining star? Is it just a big secret? Plus it's irrelevant. As is this entire conversation and all of those preceding it. Though not fighters, the F-117 a...

I asked you to provide evidence that saying those 3 words lead to a mishap. I see you are unable to provide one.

The clear and concise transmission I am talking about has most certainly done more good than bad. Why? Not directly because I said conflicting, but because I said where I am headed and when I will be there. In a low level environment, whether they say conflicting or traffic + where I can talk to the...

Why don't the lot of you write to Websters, Oxford, etc , to remove the word conflicting from the dictionary? You hate long verbose position reports.
