It's actually bad performer from what I've heard. Good on fuel though.

Re: When is Air Transat likely to resume flights

Wow, who would have thought bringing a 321 to Europe is akin to a NASA space launch.

I’m not sure why we should be surprised. Even the exemption from the EU requires reciprocity.
Not true according to CBC. EU only required reciprocity from China with the latest announcement.

Re: Why Can’t All Airlines Continue CEWS?

The intention of the program is to keep employees on the payroll ready for immediate bounce back of services. If you don't think that will happen with your business it might be considered abuse of the program to keep drawing money.

Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

It is unfortunate to say the least, that the Tutor's weren't equipped with better safety equipment to help get the crew away from an emergency situation. I am sure that will be something the Forces may take into consideration going forward. Amen to that. I would not be hesitating with the decision ...

Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

I'm disappointed in those ejectors seats. The aircraft was in a significant nose down attitude but it wasn't until after they ejected that it went straight down. They also had what looks to be more that 100 feet of altitude when they ejected. If an ejector seat can't save you in that scenario than s...

Re: RCAF Cyclone Down

If Canada was smart they'd save their money and get the Americans to perform the recovery for them. They are planning to use this type for the next Presidential helicopter so I'm sure they are dying to know why it went down.

Re: 79 Airplanes Retired

A321neoLRs? Yes looks like ACPA has already put a MOU to allow TRZ pilots to take over. On a side note, you AC pilots will love flying this brand new aircraft; very nice little bird. They're pulling your chain. Transat wasn't mentioned at all or any of their aircraft types. They said 220's and MAX.

Re: WS/WO Layoff Mitigation Agreement

Why are they laying off 450 on May 1 if CEWS is until June 6th (with talk about it being extended to September 30th)? Seems like a crummy thing to do.

I hope it wasn't the main gearbox. The government removed the requirement from Sikorsky to supply the CH-148 with a 30-minute run-dry main gearbox.

Re: Lufthansa May file for bankruptcy

The general public despises airlines here. At some point we need to do some soul searching and figure out why that is. I'm sure many people here will say it's "entitlement" though. It's not a worldwide phenomenon though. There are places in Asia for example where people love their airlines. The staf...

AC postponed their equipment bid until after Garneau's decision on the deal. That doesn't sound like a company that's sure it's going to go through with things as planned.

I don't understand how they're still in business. Who do they fly around since ORNGE took over? I just assume it's a money laundering operation at this point.
