Re: TC medical fee

Careful, they may or may not send you a bill. If they don't send it to you, they'll send it to the CRA without making and effort to contact you with your phone number or email on file.

Here's the solution.

Send him to Wuhan.
Hope he gets the 2019 Novel Coronavirus.
Pray that he learns his lesson before he gets better after a week and comes home to the same fame as Chair Girl.

Unlimited Travel Pass

It seems like Flair is either trying a tactic that has proven itself a failure in the past, or they are very desperate for money.

Re: Turkish overrun

Landing runway 06 when the winds were reported 29022G37 and +TSRA.

So, 30 knot tailwind with a runway that likely has standing water. That's not an accident... it's poor decision making.

Re: Why can they get passenger rights but no proper rest and fatigue rules?

Watch what you wish for. The EU regs aren’t much better then Canada. And it takes way more time to figure out. Shorter days also lead to more days worked and less days off. What do you think needs changing? I think all we need is lowering duty day length with increased sectors and limiting night ti...
