Yes US Customs officers do get reassigned to work other other airports/ ports of entry (POE) if needed & more of them work at Canada’s busiest airports Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal and Calgary!

That’s why Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal & Calgary usually handle most of the US flights✈️/US passengers passing through Canada airports every year✅!

For those who like photos of aircraft, Viking has a pin up calendar.

Unlike auto makes they are not using models to highlight their aircraft.

TS seems to have reactivated at least 1 A330 for the winter season. Good to see and hopefully more to come. Haven't seen one of their widebodies on revenue service in a while.

A few proving runs to YQB the last couple of days and then off to PUJ today.

Flair now has 24/7 customer service.

Maybe for them, 24/7 means 24 days a month, 7hrs per day…:haha:

AC's Q3 2021 results: https://www.newswire.ca/news-release...800113634.html

Of note on the aircraft delivery front:

Quote:

In the third quarter of 2021, Air Canada elected to proceed with the purchase of an additional two Airbus A220-300 aircraft for delivery in 2024. These two aircraft are part of the 12 Airbus A220-300 aircraft that Air Canada had previously determined it would not be purchasing under an amendment to the purchase agreement concluded with Airbus Canada Limited Partnership in November 2020. Subsequently, in October 2021, Air Canada reached an agreement with Boeing to accelerate the delivery of four Boeing 737 MAX aircraft into the fourth quarter of 2021, for a total of seven deliveries in 2021. The remaining nine Boeing 737 MAX aircraft are now expected to be delivered by the end of the second quarter of 2022, reaching a total of forty Boeing 737 MAX aircraft in the narrow-body fleet.
Load factor grew in Q3 2021 to 71.2% from 42.3% = +28.9%
Load factor YTD in 2021 is 59.2% vs 65.6% YTD 2020 = -6.5% - but that included Jan/Feb 1/2 half of March 2020 that were in the pre-pandemic norm mid-80s.

So that leaves for now (off the top of my head) the following sun route airports still without the green light: YDF, YQX, YYG, YQM, YSJ, YFC, YBG, YXU, YQG, YYB, YSB, YAM & YQT.

Also YXY, but international service there is summer seasonal and I don't know if it's loaded for summer 2022 or not.

I'm a bit surprised that YKF is on the list and not YXU. :shrug:

I imagine getting better delivery slots from Boeing isn't much of a challenge these days. While the A220's future seems certain at Air Canada - it's a really well-sized aircraft for them - I'm still curious how long they stick with the 737 MAX. I could see them using it for a decade or so and then testing the water for a new fleet of narrowbody aircraft when their younger A320s/321s come due for replacement.

They're actually sitting quite pretty these days as much as they can in the post-COVID airline world. They're operating fleets of popular aircraft, so they've plenty of experience and leverage when coming due for replacement. If the 737 MAX fiasco taught airlines something, it is that being dependent on exclusively one type of aircraft can be exceptionally risky.

Admittedly, it does bode kind of well for AC that growth has ramped up somewhat more slowly than in the US. Several airlines there have had rather spectacular meltdowns there as they've tried to expand beyond what they could deliver in a short time frame.

Also in the Q3 earnings call from Air Canada.

The B763 full freighter conversions will number 8. I kept reading 7 in previous press releases.

I read it was upped to 8 in an AC Cargo presser a few weeks ago. That exactly matches the legacy DC-8-70F fleet.

Monday night an Air Tindi DHT flying YZF-YFS ran out of fuel 10km short of the diversion airport Fort Providence. No injuries to the 2 crew and 3 pax but no word on the condition of the aircraft itself.

For some reason I read that as "meth loads"! :haha:

Since Flair is private, anyone know what the actual ownership structure is? I wonder how long they can sustain losses.

Considering their largest shareholder is suing them and they have 18% interest on a 140 million dollar loan it isn't looking too good...
