Re: IATA Warning for Canadian Aviation Sector

Please bring forth this science you are talking about. Sorry, I shouldn't have said science, but the fact that one can put measures in place to avoid the 14 day quarantine is pretty obvious. Perform testing within a few days, if you receive 2 negative tests in the span of 5 days, I see no reason fo...

Re: People just want their money back, forget credits.

At what point, after the initial shock of COVID, is the “force majeure” clause still valid? I would argue that the environment is now known and That “force majeure” is not applicable anymore. Just like hotels gave refunds due to COVID-19 for trips purchased before April 1st. After that, you know the...

Re: People just want their money back, forget credits.

It has been argued, successfully, with credit cards and airlines that you bought a ticket to go from A to B on a given date, not a credit for flying in the future. Re: credit. I was also told that if you don’t spent the whole credit in one shot, you forfeit the rest... so, you get a $3,000 credit, y...

Re: WJ calls in the Swat Team on Maskless Toddler

I believe they are taking a cautious approach because of all the unknowns with the virus which is reasonable. Sure, in 1, 2, 10 years, we’ll have a more complete picture, and we’ll be able to cherry pick and see what we did right and what we did wrong. Right now, there are too many unknowns to know ...

Infact the CDC DIRECTOR HIMSELF says masks are better than vaccines. You have to wonder how we survived all those other diseases that we vaccinate for. Why was I ...

Re: IATA Warning for Canadian Aviation Sector

You don’t need to prove to the public that travel is safe. You need to convince the government that airlines/airports can provide safe travel using a science based approach similarity to those that other airlines/countries have done. It doesn’t need to to be a full 14 day quarantine or a full ban. ...

Is there a demand greater than what is available now for travel? My point is ? I was answering you question. YES! There is a demand. If it wasn’t for the Quarantine ACT restrictions, much more Canadians would be travelling than are now. People who want to travel are forced not to. But they WANT to ...

Re: IATA Warning for Canadian Aviation Sector

Well of course the public is scared the media and to a certain extent the governments have been painting them a scary story. How scary is COVID now? I’d say far less scary then they make it out to be. Here’s some one walking in downtown Stockholm sometime last week. https://youtu.be/bamZrEfwx0A Loo...

Re: IATA Warning for Canadian Aviation Sector

The point is that The quarantine is killing aviation. And it killed small buisnesses and many other areas of the economy.

Re: IATA Warning for Canadian Aviation Sector

The quarantine is killing aviation. One week vacation turns into three. Lots more people would travel if there was no quarantine period. You cannot compare a strike (where the demand for flying is still there) and now (where there is almost no demand for flying) and argue that you are an “essential...
