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

I believe that there are two(2) further additional 30 day extensions available? Only one left now. After the end of September other extensions will require a mutual agreement (under conditions) until the final limit of december 27th. Sounds like September 27 is the date to circle on the calendar.

Re: When is Air Transat likely to resume flights

Hey guys I think it might be decided on case-by-case basis. I can't decide which is fake news this thread or the dozen media outlet reporting Canada is not quarantined entering EU. Canadians currently do not have to quarantine going to the EU. They are paying for tickets and hotels based on this. T...

Re: When is Air Transat likely to resume flights

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. As Gilles pointed out. China Is singled out as needing to show reciprocity first before the exemption applie...

Starting to wonder which companies (both large and small) in Canada are going to fold by the fall :?:
I think it is a given without aid. JT must know this is the case, so I guess he is good with it.

Gilles,

Can I assume Transat will push its restart until winter season now?

Air Canada simply said it was waiting to hear what regulators decide.
How does that become "Air Canada says it's not backing out of Air Transat deal"? They did not say that. It bothers me the media can't report the news accurately or without their own little twist on it.
I agree.

Re: Climbing on VZF in a jet

When you have a planned tailwind is it more time/fuel saving in a jet to climb all the way to your cruising altitude on VZF (low buffet)? Not that slow as others have pointed out. High altitude, too slow = backside of the power curve = Your going down, not up. The heavier you are the less wiggle ro...

I agree. Rudder nailed it on the last page. Watch the Feds and their quarantine requirements Keep an eye on what the Feds do with the quarantine requirements. If the 14 day remain-at-home rule is extended through the summer it will have a significant impact on international travel demand (inbound).
