Re: 7F and 5T Codesharing flights.

Brock knows what he's doing when it comes to code share. While at Canadian, Brock put the CP/BA deal together along with CP/LH, CP/QF/NZ, CP/PR/Mandarin Airlines. After CP, he became VP Strategy for Star Alliance.

I have no idea about the other team.

The thing I like about your posts, Complex, is they mirror my view, saving me from writing.

I read a tread like this and I can't believe some people would like to see the industry shrink. Then, they'll have more to whine about. Unless I'm missing something.

Re: Interesting articles for expats presently out there

Maybe pay huge premiums for private insurance that will run out if your care runs over a predetermined amount or have that insurance company deny a claim for any small reason they can. Because we all k...

Is there anyone that doesn't technically qualify for dual citizenship unless you're native Canadian? This is epic lol. What does bother me is, using your example, someone immigrating here becoming a citizen then becoming an expat. Now you're not paying taxes or contributing to canada, but I bet if ...

Increasing ASM's simply means they added capacity. While it's important to list ASM and RPM measure for load factor comparison. Increasing RPM's is not that hard to do. It's easy to fill an airplane. Price it right and people will fly. Making good money is the challenge. Asking how their yield did Y...

Re: Great Aviation Blog covering Aviation

That "Abstract" on the left side of the page is one sentence. Furthermore, it's hard to read, meanders from one thought to another. Very poor writing. It doesn't make me want to read on. In fact I never finished the abstract. And why call it an abstract?

Good idea, but poor execution.
