Re: Air canada axes 30 routes

The government told people not to travel, effectively forcing airlines temporarily out of business. When the airlines asked the gov for help they got nothing...(crickets) Shutting down a bunch of regional routes is just sending a message. Help us or there will be more to come. Uh no, most of these ...

Instead, some will want to shut down the entire economy again instead of the appropriate 5% of it.

Re: A mess to regain confidence.

Unfortunately, if you use lockdowns to flatten the curve, it no longer stays flat when you lift such restrictions, as we are now seeing in certain states. In less that two weeks from now, they are projecting ICU’s beyond surge capacity.
Here we go again.

Re: Airlines ask MP’s to have COVID rules relaxed ..

I don't know what the issue is. I booked a trip to another province for next month, and nobody asked if it was essential or anything. We can travel and nobody is stopping it. How is this the federal government's fault again? Many people have actually become accustomed to just chilling now, and pers...

Re: Equipment bid

We’re all just bickering about the price of human lives. At some point it boils down to that. Personally I’m just going to let the cards fall where they may, but I don’t think it’s justified to sh*t on the masses just because they’re scared [and you’re not].

Re: Equipment bid

The mere statement that hundreds of thousands of people will still lose their lives in and effort to keep the economy going is conjecture based on some rather faulty assumptions. Um, have you not paid attention? Hundreds of thousands have already lost their lives with the economy not going, so plen...

Re: Equipment bid

You're cherry picking the data to support your own conclusions. I took a look at the CDC website to see what else it had to say, specifically about air travel. You're using their data but arguing against the CDCs own guidance. Exactly, everyone is all of a sudden the new CDC director. Let people ch...

Short-term, I don’t foresee the world being eager/able to lift enough covid restrictions to get the aviation industry significantly moving again. Flare ups and re-implementation of restrictions are going to keep things bogged down for a while. The virus isn’t going away, it will spread and freak eve...

Re: Equipment bid

Well, we never came close to overflowing ICU’s...because of the lockdowns. Unfortunately, we can’t go back in time and see what would have happened had we done nothing, but it’s very clear that the lockdowns were effective. Maybe we went overboard, maybe not, but we didn’t get to low covid levels in...

Re: Equipment bid

Okay, so a few doctors are skeptical, but clearly the vast majority are not. It just takes a few more full or overflowing ICU situations to wake everybody up about the seriousness again. Again, it’s not about the mortality rate. It’s actually about how many sick people the hospitals can handle at on...

In fact lots dispute the seriousness of this illness, and in particular the draconian measures used.

You quoted one person, without giving a link to the entire article
Ironically you haven’t quoted any doctor or given any article about such disputes.

Re: Equipment bid

It seems that the very high transmission rate of this particular virus is going to be a limiting factor in what kind of restrictions we will see lifted, and subsequently what increases we can see in air travel. We also still have to recover from all the economic damage already done.

Re: When do you think flying will be back to february 2020 level

I'm sure things will be very closely back to February 2020 levels in February 2021. Unless there's some super surge in the fall the scare factor of this thing is diminishing. At a point the desire for the masses to travel is going to overcome their fear of the virus. The crunch month is probably go...

Re: The Return to Normal?

If some of you think you have the solution, then the real trick is isolating the vulnerable throughout the entire pandemic and convincing the less vulnerable that’s it’s safe to walk around. “Don’t get within 6 feet of anyone older in your life and if you do, don’t sneeze, and be prepared to catch C...
