Re: Requirements for day stays

Just hop an Uber into town and expense it! Book yourself into a suite at a downtown hotel, unless there is a suitable one closer to the airport.

Jets? really? on a yyz-yqt or any of the other dash routes? You should start your own airline.
Before Encore, WJA ran 737s on that route... JZA ran CRJ705s and 200s before they got the Qs. ACA ran A319/320s, DC9s, et al.

So it is not inconceivable to run jets on this dash route!

Re: Well, someone has to talk about the 12 hour BTT amdt.

Don’t forget, it is also 12 hours bottle-to-duty, not bottle to throttle! My company has had a 12 hour policy for ages (fairly recently they added an addition restriction on excessive drinking between 12 and 20 hours before departure), but it has always been bottle to throttle (or brake release/push...

Re: New bottle to throttle rules

At AC it’s 12 hours bottle to departure time; if it’s bottle to duty, that would make it 13:15 bottle to throttle. Not the end of the world, by any means, but I have to admit I have enjoyed a quick pint on a 12 hour layover that wouldn’t be allowed under those rules.

Re: AC A320 slides off runway at YYZ

I agree with flying low. There is nothing that prohibits you from doing autolands on a Cat 1 runway. Except on the 320 at AC; as per ATB 560: CAT 2 or CAT 3 OPERATIONS MUST BE IN EFFECT FOR AUTOMATIC LANDING. AUTOLAND during CAT 1 operations is prohibited for line operations until clarification of ...
