Re: Porter Airlines shifts restart of flights date to June 29

Wouldn’t their $135M loan tide them over?

Re: Stand-By Travel while Furloughed

As a goodwill gesture, between YYZ YYC YEG and YVR you can use the reciprocal J/S on Flair.

RAIC.... OR....Pilot’s licence and a copy of the furlough/lay off notification...... and other airline ID (if available).

Personal travel only and not for deadheading or for any other business purposes.

Re: One List

The only practical option is for WJ to close Encore and place the Q400's into the WJ fleet.
+1. And may very well happen.

+ve news nevertheless is AC will be using the Emergency Wage Subsidy Program to rehire all laid off staff. I’d say that’s a win.

Re: Approach ban

Bingo!

Weird but true. LPV is a non precision IAP, so 50% of advisory vis, whereas an ILS is a precision approach and limited by %75 of advisory vis.
Unless the runway has centreline lighting, then 50% advisory vis as well for the ILS. But you’re right, without it, it’s 75%.

Re: Flairs troubles......

KF is throwing a petulant hissy fit and the fact they were ordered to pay Flair's court costs for wasting it's time, leads me to think the Kelowna crowd found a bored local reporter from where....Penticton was it?....to engineer a little smear job. There's a bit more to this that's not reported. Not...
