Is 7F starting to suck eggs these days ? They should have expanded into the northern Alberta crew change work like 5T did and they too would be doing much better than just the same ole' arctic work which fluctuates very little...that company lost its heart and hasn't been the same since they got rid of the twotter's years ago.

BTW anyone know how those "new" 737-400's and ATR 72 freighters are working out for them ?

Pretty sure they had some crew change work, I remember them going into Firebag, but the yrb crash ended that.

7F, I am sure would love to get into northern Alberta and oil sands crew transfers, but they can't.

Their unfortunate accident in Resolute knocked them off being an approved carrier for the oil companies for a while.
