Re: CargoJet or Transat?

KFC was supposed to have the Purolator contract "forever" because Barry was some kind of guru. We all know how that worked out. You know who the president of Cargo Jet is right? He counts his nickels and dimes. When, not if, the Canadian economy goes into freefall air freight is one of the first to ...

Re: WestJet might as well rebrand itself as Canadian

No it is the same. If I have a choice it is AC, not because I like AC but because I do not have to put up with the Westjetty bs for the same money.

repeat job postings

What is with these companies who repeatedly post for the same positions over and over? Nobody is interested, get over it. Try something different.

Re: Bombardier considers move away from Downsview

"Awesome idea. Never going to happen.
Viking is an Western based company. "

Exactly. Without government support where would the money come from? Enormous capital investment.

I very seriously doubt that they have been allowed to walk away from the NTCL disaster that easily. That just sounds like marketing sleaze.

Re: Competition Bureau 5T/7F

The bankruptcy of NTCL is probably the final nail in the coffin for Norterra and it's little group of companies. $140 million is a a substantial chunk of money to be on the hook for. Good luck.

Re: American Express Platinum card: Benefits vs Cost

I had a Platinum Card for many years and it has some advantages if you are able to exploit them. But you have to deal with AMEX (dicks) and a lot of merchants want nothing to do with AMEX (dicks).

Re: Suncor flight dept shutting down?

With 5T being a private company you sure know a lot about their financial health. 5T has 3 Oil companies under contract and other upcoming charter obligations. BTW the codeshare agreement is working as intended so far. Any more insight? Well now aren't we defensive.. Charter "obligations" indeed, do...

Heard that there is a good lawyer in the Kelowna area that has worked with a few former KFC employees regarding dismissal. Anyone know who this might be?

Yes I know who Ray Kurzweil is and I have read a lot of his material. I doubt if any of the naysayers here have even heard of him. Like I said ignore the future at your own peril.

You guys are really funny. Bought and paid for. BL is good in his little sandbox where he has all kinds of control. But he is overstepping his boundaries. There are far bigger sharks in the sea than BL. He is but a minnow.

Because there is a market for this. I agree - on the surface - simply stopping in Anchorage seems kind of odd, I'm sure there's a reason though.......maybe it's what his customer wants.

What people seem to be missing is "dispatch reliability" along with engineering support and parts support for an aircraft that Boeing has zero interest in. It is an old MDC aircraft remember...

Re: Kelowna Flightcraft moving to YYZ

Boeing Boy there is no "large overseas cargo market" in Canada. Never has been. I love the Dc10 but it's day has come and gone. Finished. This is all just a joke that Barry is playing on somebody.And if he is silly enough to try it he will lose his shirt.
