YOW-YUL is probably mostly connecting traffic. It's a very easy drive and city center to city center might be faster by train or driving these days.

UA will not restart SEA-HKG. SEA is just a spoke these days and they would add more flights from a hub. Unless there was a strong tie in with traffic in SEA (ie AS), a huge contract in SEA that demanded HKG service or maybe a metal neutral JV partner from HKG that demanded service I see no way UA w...Jump to post
I certainly hope that “defending market share” isn’t TS’ only use for the 321LRs. I certainly hope they use them to reinstate former routes out of secondary markets like YOW-LGW or YQB-MRS that they have all but abandoned save for YQB-CDG.Jump to post
Its not going to go anywhere. With the pilot shortage and the move by airlines for regional planes with more than 50 seats, the days of 19-37 seats are over. There's a lot of remote places on this planet where either a > 50 seater is complete overkill or where the airstrip itself can't handle an ai...Jump to post
Do you mean an equipment up gauge on a particular flight or overall capacity on a route?
It’s easy to have huge percentage increases in capacity on low frequency routes.

Here's an update on the Jetlines front. They've secured the lease of 2 A320s from AerCap for delivery in 2019.
So no Boeings at least to start off with.

My recent, ongoing spotting at SEA reveals an accelerated number of the Embraer 175 jets in service, and fewer Q-400's. Both AS and Delta seem to be employing LOTS of the 175's. How does this affect the future of commuter turboprops? How is Dehavilland/Canada/ going to compete or stay relevant? No ...Jump to post
YOW needed stairs for widebodies until the expansion of the old terminal in approximately 1988.
In 1978 four loading bridges were added to the old terminal. However, I believe that the DC-8 was the largest aircraft they could handle. Might have even been the 727. They were low to the ground.

The new international terminal will hardly feel anything by losing BA which only has a single flight a day. KL remains strong, and WS still has growth in it to utilize the space. BA flights still available for booking through December. Air Canada is dropping Tokyo as well. Fairly significant for th...Jump to post
I'm finding it really interesting that LCCs now properly paint their planes while more and more full service/legacy carriers move to plain white with color on the tail and nothing else. As for the posted schemes, I like C. I'm all for curves in the design, but A and B have them in the total wrong p...Jump to post

They were manufactured by ThyssenKrupp.
It all depends upon what kind of markets they want to target. If they want to largely avoid the big boys and gals, Q400s to places like IND, DAY, OMA, etc. are all much more ideally suited to the Q400. I wonder if the IND jet bridges can dock with a Q400. I don't believe the terminal provides tarma...Jump to post
CRJ's or ERJ's Used Q400s could make a lot of sense too. This can succeed if it’s somewhat modelled after Porter and the old MidEx. I don't think a 74 pax plane is worth it. Min pax should be at lest 140 or so. It all depends upon what kind of markets they want to target. If they want to largely av...Jump to post

Does 287 seat A332 = 9-abreast seating in Y? Not at all. I believe these are ex-Air Berlin aircraft so probably feature a large economy cabin over premium cabins.

You must be looking at the wrong link. It takes a very special livery to make an A350 in flight look butt ugly, and IB's is one of them. Egads.

Here's the real reason why yellow was dropped: $$$ MONEY $$$ It's far cheaper for to paint an aircraft Eurowhite with a splash of 1 colour vs the old livery that was white, grey, blue and yellow/gold.

There are now positive developments on the WestJet pilots front. They have agreed to federal mediation.

I also recall some issue about the old 732s being grandfathered in for rules that would limit the ability to use moveable bulkheads. Does anyone else recall this issue or if it has come to pass?

Interestingly enough the runway where that flight took of from was recently taken out of service and partially removed as part of the airport's new runway system.

I wonder if a BAe 146 with gravel kit would do the job. Nice short runway performance, high wing... The Embraer KC-390 would maybe be nice too, as stated by a friend above.

Interesting. Maybe this explains the frequency downgrade on BEG-JFK.
