Re: how long

They delay launches if the conditions aren’t 100% optimal. If you have ever flown an airplane you would realize (especially in a Canada) conditions are rarely optimal.

Re: how long

after the first accident did we stop flying all together? or did we analyze it and correct it. during the faze in of this technology, do you think that 1 pilot in the cockpit to monitor systems and step in if necessary. and then talk to the engineering team as to why he stepped in would make sense?...

Until the first accident. Might work for cargo, but maybe in 100 years with passengers.

Re: A mess to regain confidence.

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

I don’t have any skin in the game but from the outside I’d say AT is much better positioned to get through Covid. Next question is do the AT pilots still want to join AC? The big margins in the vacation business is hotels and peripherals. Do it yourselves and never look back. I too have the same fe...

Well that is completely false. Transat stock cannot be valued like a normal stock on the market. That’s because AC is in an agreement to purchase them for 18$. Here is how it works: If the market was sure the deal was going to go through the stock would be at 18$. Doesn't matter what AC is at. AC co...
