I lost leeway on focus trying to keep the ISO at 400 and can easily darken the sky and add more sharpening. An issue I seem to be having is anything other than direct head-on sunlight being acceptable. It's a D800, there's a ton of dynamic range and shadows can be recovered, but then it looks unnatu...Jump to post

Glad WS is expanding into Europe,my guess is this will increase.with newer widebody aircraft in the near future. The only drawback is still limited direct flights from YYZ or YUL. Hope they dont use terminal 3 at CDG, a terrible place to wait for your flight.Did they choose CDG over Orly for any sp...Jump to post
Engines being at the same level as the fuselage, I guess, explains the rationale for the white cowlings? The CRJ in new paint has black engines, so it appears to be a decision made only for the Q. Hopefully a 77W goes in for paint soon :) Spotters have stated that C-FITL, their first 77W, has been ...Jump to post

I see those people that are flying to Sun destinations and I don't get why they would consider wearing shorts and flip flops on a plane as it is completely unsafe. No sun destination is hot enough to not be able to survive in jeans until you get to your destination. I see it all the time here in YY...Jump to post

This CBC article has a pretty wild video from inside the WestJet cabin.
I can't even tell, what were they shouting?
That CBC article says the Westjet aircraft was stationary waiting for a gate and the Sunwing a/c was being pushed back out of its gate. If that is true, that's a serious lack of wing walking skills on Swissport's behalf, which honestly really doesn't surprise me at all... Swissport has been an abso...Jump to post
Sunwing confirmed to CTV their plane was empty.Jump to post
Nobody said there's flames in any of those pictures. Fire was at the Sunwing APU and looks already extinguished.Jump to post
Interesting that Sunwing didn't pop slides when it was them that caught fire.
Edit: Seeing on Twitter that Sunwing may have been empty, likely repositioning.
Those newer 737 NG have kind of a hodge podge of lighting. The new wing root lights are all LED and replace the nose taxi light as well. The ones with LED wingtip strobes still have a conventional tail strobe. It's the MAX that has the 787 tail strobes that double as the rear nav light, in addition ...Jump to post

Interesting, I haven’t yet seen one post speculating that this deal may also result in WS starting SEA and PDX. This has been expected for awhile but I would think a JV with DL makes it more likely. There has been speculation here in YYC about this potentially resulting in WR or WS taking over or s...Jump to post
There is virtually no community of interest between Calgary and Detroit and therefore no local traffic. I doubt this will occur. WS already has seasonal Windsor - Calgary. The moment you cross then border, it attracts almost $50 in US fees and taxes. There is no way around this. No one is going to ...Jump to post
they could establish that without JV. They already code share and interline with each other. And you can get to xxx via LGA, MSP, ORD, DFW, IAH, DEN. Any number of cities. Tell me more about the direct LGA service from YYC making a one stop connection possible. And who says I want to fly to ORD, DF...Jump to post
Why can't that be done via codeshare? Because revenues are not shared on a codeshare? Not saying it can't be done via codeshare, but there is talk of new routes somebody on YYC-DTW or YYC-ATL are plausible scenarios. The point was that this doesn't help consumers. We want more competition and low p...Jump to post
What are the supposed public benefits from this proposed JV? This opens the door for YYC-ATL, so for anybody in YYC it opens one-stop connections to the southeast and beyond via the massive ATL hub. Seems like a big benefit. Why can't that be done via codeshare? Because revenues are not shared on a...Jump to post

You don't have to be a pilot to grasp the concept that flying with 2x fuel as is required for the trip could result in an overweight landing, unnecessary fuel burn, or a reduction in performance such that the aircraft might no longer be able to meet runway requirements or obstacle clearance.Jump to post
Mis-fueling is not as easy as one might think. The Fuel sheet has the Registration Number and the flight number of the outbound flight and the fueler is supposed to match those to the fuel sheet BEFORE fueling along with the fuel on board and the Block fuel to be boarded. It's a pretty sorry fueler...Jump to post

And then there's the fueling in which someone I know of described the 737 as the most frustrating plane to fuel, I'm not sure why that would be the case, but I took their word for it. Yeah I have fuelling experience and I can't see why that would be true. The CRJ is probably the most frustrating pl...Jump to post

With WestJet launching a new ULCC in the first quarter of 2018, I see no room for another carrier in Canada. WestJet will do with this airline what they did to NewLeaf...

It does look like they're fighting to get through storms all through the midwest, but...

I'm aware the centre tank is larger and makes up for it, but I'm assuming it does so by occupying a larger space within the wing, leaving the wing tank to be smaller? So in a sense the total fuel within the wing in in fact larger? Where you getting that from? Numerous sources online state the wing t...Jump to post
