Re: Nav Canada to Hike Service Fees by 30%

SFO runs close parallel with no middle taxiways. plus intersecting departures. Yeah, in bad weather movements go down, but when it's running like it does 98% of the time they are moving a lot of aircraft with 1 tower controller and 1 ground controller. Some navcanada controller on here will tell us ...

Re: CEWS

Do you think the guy getting reduced 320 CA to 737 FO at 55 hours isn't taking a big pay cut? More like 50+%? Everyone is taking big hits. Everyone has obligations. Are you sure that guy has been earning 200K for the last 10 years? How many jobs do you think another 5% is going to save? Everytime we...

Re: Air Canada Second Trip to C.C.A.A.?

I have heard that they are projecting that they can hold on until into Q1/21 before they hit their bingo cash number. If traffic/bookings pick up before then, imif additional revenue continues growing (ie cargo), if recovery comes, that date pushes.

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

Maybe it's a translation thing or just the reporter's syntax. Transat feeling it's better to be competitors? Compete with their 321s? That's not how it's going, the only one calling the concessions it would be willing to take would be AC. And I don't believe there are any Canadian rules that prohibi...

Looks like Kobe's wife is suing the pilot directly now on top of the company. Something to keep in mind when you're pushing the weather or whatever. Even if you don't live they're coming after your family.

The house of cards that is excessive covid restrictions will topple.

Re: Nav Canada to Hike Service Fees by 30%

I agree. Maybe time to operate only 1 ground/tower controller, combine sectors, go to a MF/ATF after 10 pm, and decommision some bureaucrats while they're at it. There clearly isn't the traffic to support the staffing levels. Adding more taxes and fees is no way to support a recovery of air traffic.

I don't want to import all the British problems here. We have enough of our own that we can't seem to deal with.

Plus they would think they were our colonial overlords again.

No thanks.

Special relationship and status between countries, sure. But Canada mostly for Canadians.
