Meh, I doubt PHX is going anywhere. They've been adding at PHX ever since the merger. Keep in mind that, like TX, AZ is a very fast-growing state.Jump to post
Problems with YQB: 1. Lack of cultural and economic links to the rest of the continent. To be honest, most of Quebec City's economic and business links are with the other communities inside the province of Quebec. Not many business links with, say, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Calgary, Winnipeg o...Jump to post
Venezuela is going to need a lot more than a new flag carrier.
It's going to need to completely annihilate the last vestiges of socialism in its society first...then it can focus on redeveloping its airline industry.
Personally, this is by far the best interior of any major North American carrier. The cabin feels spacious, bright, clean and very comfortable. That blue/purple hue of the seats are very easy on the eyes. It makes the cabin feel bright and spacious during the day but then cozy during the evening/at ...Jump to post
In cases like this, what can we do? I don't know if it is fair for me to complain because each one of us have a different culture and definitely different hygiene habits. Many forget one thing: one's freedom stops where someone else's starts. Meaning, while no one can force someone to shower and ha...Jump to post
A long range narrow body aircraft for AC would open up a ton of markets from YUL and YYZ.Jump to post
I was on a Air Canada Express CRJ-200 doing RDU-YYZ about two years ago. We had a woman board the plane who I think never showered or used deodorant. She sat two rows behind me but I was still able to smell her. The man sitting next to her didn't have a problem spraying his cologne all over her and ...Jump to post

Looks like Sat/Sun CR9 to MSY. Too little too late seems to me. I'm going to take the glass half-full approach here. I think it's great to see DL continuing to invest in RDU, particularly in markets where there is already some competition. The addition of MSY and PIT shows that DL isn't shying away...Jump to post
Are the residents making the argument that traffic over the last 10, 20, 30, 40 years at YUL was supposed to stay stagnant? The residents should have expected for traffic to very from year to year...they would be stupid to assume otherwise.Jump to post
SJC-YYZ would be a resumption of that route. AC flew it around 2000. Yup. It was killed in the post-9/11 downturn. I believe they also flew SJC-Ottawa (YOW?) briefly. The A220 is a larger capacity aircraft than the E jet, correct? SJC-YVR started up 1x or 2x/D. Now it’s up to 3x. I wonder if we wil...Jump to post
I've got mixed feelings about RDU-SAN still being served by F9 (twice-weekly and appears to perhaps be year-round.) I'm happy to see the continuation of the service, probably indicating that the loads are good. (Which I would expect.) OTOH I'm unhappy that F9 is continuing to serve the market becau...Jump to post
Flying will be boring in 20 years, where nearly every narrow-body aircraft is either a 737 or 320 and every wide-body aircraft is either a 787 or 350. Not exactly. They're going to keep stretching the 737s and A320s so that they can eventually fit wide-body capacity in them. The wide-bodies will be...Jump to post

No mention of mainline vs. Rouge.
With all the focus in Canada being on YVR, YYC, YYZ and YUL...what opportunities do YEG and YOW present to WS and AC? Both are relatively large metro areas and neither AC or WS have claimed them as focus cities/hubs.Jump to post
The problem I see with Canada is that both its main national carriers, AC and WS, are fighting over the same cities/hubs (with the exception of YUL - that fully belongs to AC), which makes supporting two national carriers unsustainable. If it was set up where AC would take YVR, YYZ and YUL and WS wo...Jump to post
What's WestJet's plan for YVR?
Is it realistic for WS to use YVR as their Pacific gateway hub?

Too late for WS at YUL (or anyone else, for that matter)...AC has expanded very substantially at YUL since the beginning of this decade.Jump to post
Ah Canada, not quite big enough to support two full-fledge national carriers, yet too big to be dominated solely by Air Canada.
If is relying upon YYC for their international expansion, they're in trouble.
The currently terminal layout was popular in the late 60s/early 70s (see IAH, CDG and the master plan for YMX) however the current layout does indeed hold the airport back a little. They should go for a terminal layout similar to that of ATL or DEN.Jump to post
Red Deer is a very-fast growing metro area. It can probably support schedule service with AC or WS.Jump to post
Wow-around 26% increase in 3 years. In general Montreal has been economically growing at around the Canadian average for the last few years as have the traffic figures at YUL. The slow but sure decrease of the separatist threat has stabilized things in my opinion. The city is not becoming less weal...Jump to post
Why is it other airports can get foreign carriers but not RDU. We only have AC.. is it a reflection on RDU or is it a reflection that the other airport have a different draw? I wouldn't say that necessarily the case. It's just that domestic carriers like DL and AA are flying routes that would other...Jump to post
Given AA’s recent moves to cut p2p flying, is there a possibility BA could take over RDU-LHR in the future? I always thought it would make more sense for AA to move the 772 used on the route to PHX and fly that route year round, while BA could move their PHX frequency to RDU. Also, if AA does keep ...Jump to post

The flight will be well-times for European connections beyond YUL.

Watching at some clips which review the business class product on Air Italy... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1WrlSSy2UTk It all looks rather... quite poor https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HI8CKermkyA Aren't their A330s temporary?
