All this thread and not a single one for Dill Pickle? I weep for humanity... you all fail at correct potato chip flavors.
Also Walkers Potato Crisps and Lays Potato Chips are basically the same according the nutritional information so I wouldn't bet on British crisps being healthier.

Only thing a 717 can do that the A220 and E2 can't is the Hawaiian high-cycle utilization model... it's mostly an engine issue... the original JT8D could do it, The BR71x can do it, the CFM56, JT8D-2xx, PW1000, LEAP etc cannot handle the short flights and high cycle count. So once the 717 is too lon...Jump to post
The McDonnell Douglas MD-87 was a model of the late dc-9 series targeted for the regional shorter haul market with options to make it more of a medium haul aircraft. It was produced for about 5 years and only 75 were ever made, making it the least popular md80 series aircraft. My assumption was tha...Jump to post
Benjamin Smith does not seem to be of Quebecoise provenance. He graduated from the University of Western Ontario, and so I doubt whether his French is up to the standards of the AF unions!

Now that Airbus has rebranded the CSeries as the A220, I wonder what the builders plate will reflect? Especially on aircraft built prior to the rebrand. On the built frames, probably CSXXX.

Because Tier 3 operations have been debranded. They still operate as Air Canada affiliated flights with AC codeshares but they are no longer part of the Air Canada Express banner, this applies to EVAS and Air Georgian B1900D operations.Jump to post
