Piedmont Triad Airport between Greensboro, NC and Winston-Salem, NCJump to post
The Casablanca service is moving from Rouge 763 to mainline A330-300 so that frees up some 763 aircraft for new routes. YVR-LGW isn't coming back, and I very much doubt YVR-NGO will be back next summer. YYZ-DUB (2x daily rouge is the summer) is also being transferred to mainline so quite a bit of c...Jump to post
I love this livery and I love the cockpit mask.
I also loved the mint green livery. Good job Air Canada!
With major corporations they always deny everything up until the point that it is a done deal. I wouldn't put much thought into whatever an exec says in the public domain outside of investor events and official documents. Exactly! Air Canada even published a business case against the CSeries less t...Jump to post
Looks like AUS goes mainline March 2nd. BOS will get 1 daily 717 starting March 2nd as well. Rumor has it SAT is in the works. SAT would be a smart move. tons of military traffic between the two I believe the RDU is lobbying for service to SAN, PDX, MCI and SJC (top 4). SAT may fall outside of the ...Jump to post
Honestly, if the Canadian government is scared of Air Canada flying to Beirut, then make the flight have Israeli like security. Passengers need to be questioned before they check in and when they are checking in. Baggage is put through a detector to find any bombs or anything suspicious. That would...Jump to post
Anything is possible; new domestic flights, new USA flights, new intercontinental flights...but given that Dakar was listed as a possible destination from YUL with the 787 I'm going to guess it's a new flight to Dakar.Jump to post
Africa, perhaps.Jump to post
Big news coming out of Montreal

I checked in OAG. ATL has more than 2x as many flights crossing VA than does YYZ and EWR has more flights crossing PA than does YYZ. Vermont is so small that flights from YUL even going to due south might not cross over it. That's correct - most flights from YUL going south fly over New York State,...Jump to post
It's about time Delta announce a new (or 3) destination like SAN, MSY, and MEX (or BDA or NAS)... they overdue!!! Any particular reason why MEX? Because of the SkyTeam connection? He posts once a week that RDU is due for adding another destination. DL just added SEA and CDG, as well as other cities...Jump to post
Looks like Delta might be testing SJU.... Sat only service on Dec 23, 30, and Jan 6.. 738 aircraft.... last year 2016 it was LAS.. this year 2017 SJU.. year before 2015 it was NAS... thoughts? I wouldn't call it testing. It's using an otherwise parked plane in a holiday market. LAS was never tested...Jump to post
I find it amazing that some people cannot see the difference between the situation in Lebanon as opposed to other middle eastern countries. The governments of Saudi Arabia and Egypt are in charge of their jurisdictions. Their politics may be problematic but they do not subordinate themselves to non...Jump to post
Something interesting is happening at SAN with AS.
RDU=DL focus city...nothing more (and that's not necessarily a bad thing).
The only other cities that have a mix of size and geography that can maybe support a hub would be AUS, BNA and MCI (they need to resolve threat terminal problems first)
If SJC is growing at a faster percentage rate then yes they are "technically" narrowing the gap. Realistically, though, that's just not how the English language works. Decreasing the rate at which you fall behind is not generally regarded the same thing as actually closing the gap. "...Jump to post
If SJC is growing at a faster percentage rate then yes they are "technically" narrowing the gap. The influx of new international flights and the Alaska Airlines focus city has been propping up pax numbers at SJC for the last few years.Jump to post
You can argue that they already serve Canadian markets by flying into BTV (close to Montreal) and BUF (close to Hamilton & Toronto).Jump to post
I wonder if they would also consider PAE-SEA? CO used to fly HOU-IAH several flights a day. It could be a great way to tailor to local loyalists. Funny...that would be even more ridiculous than the San Francisco-Sonoma route UA flies. Ridiculous really I miss the old UA SNA LAX flights.... :biggrin...Jump to post

It's also important to note that Air Canada still has about a dozen 787-9s on order, meaning we can expect a couple more new flights with these birds.Jump to post
"YUL: Special market hub, minimize duplication with YYZ, focus on key francophone markets and key global markets" I wouldn't read that much into that statement; Air Canada is looking to make money and they'll serve non-francophone markets out of YUL and duplicate with their YYZ operations...Jump to post
Air Canada has been on a tear lately! As per the press release, so far in 2017, Air Canada has launched new international services between Montreal-Shanghai, with Vancouver-Taipei, Vancouver-Nagoya, Vancouver-Frankfurt, Vancouver-London Gatwick, Toronto-Mumbai, Toronto-Berlin, Toronto-Reykjavik, Mon...Jump to post
Very nice adds by AC from their main hubs.
St. Vincent...wow. That's a pretty obscure airport in the Caribbean (comparatively speaking).
I wonder if they will tweak their brand and make it more universal/relevant to global travel? WestJet is a pretty regional/low cost concept and is a bit confusing if you are flying to Europe and Asia. Easy Jet and Air Asia brands have a more international cache. I don't get it. How is "WestJet...Jump to post
Definitely a plow to block startups such as Canada Jetlines and to compete vs Air Transat and Air Canada Rouge.Jump to post
I've heard Brits refer to "Europe" as some landmass that's not part of their own. For example, some folks in Britain say "I was in Europe for the weekend" or "those people over in Europe..." Is Britain truly considered part of Europe or is there some debate as to whethe...Jump to post
