Re: 50 Q400 at WJ being farmed out

Yeah realized that after the fact. Anyhoo, still no credibility. No internal memo was sent out. Lets wait and see what the real story is. Probably wont have to wait too long.

Re: More fat people fly on Air Canada than Westjet

Trey Kule really doesn't get the airline business, does he? Yes Trey, the airlines get every penny that they charge. Here is my idea. At every entrance to every airport, set up a booth for the following to collect their own user fees so that the uneducated (Trey Kule et al) can see who really gets t...

Re: Enerjet

Let me clarify. No, the EnerJet airplane was not parked on the ramp in front of the Esso getting serviced and fueled. As anyone who taxis past the Esso knows, the plane is always sitting in the weeds across the taxiway where aircraft are parked when they are staying for a while in YYC.

Re: Enerjet

I've seen their plane sitting at the Esso just about every day this week. Im sure the Avitat is making money off it with ramp fees.

How does Porter depart 15 minutes after AC and land before you at YTZ? Makes no sense at all.

Re: WJ 747-8...is this real?

As a matter of fact, you will see that in lots of air to air photos, flaps have been extended so that pictures can be taken at slower speeds. ATC has even been known to ask for speeds on arrival slower than flaps up speeds, which would once again lead to this crazy ass scenario. Nuts, eh??

Re: FA Salaries

Um, i don't think Vortac was demeaning our profession. The way I read it, he was making a comment that FAs, under no circumstance can make more than a pilot at any time. I think he was defending the pay structure (pilot vs. Flighty) but who am I to know.
