You often see the British boys in bars in Medicine Hat when they come into town from the base in Suffield, Prince Harry has often been seen during his training at CFB Suffield :cheers:

It's always been an avgeek treat to have the Brits train at Suffield, over the years at YYC we've seen:

-Jaguars
-Tornadoes
-L1011's
-VC-10's
-A330 Voyagers
-C-17's
-Charter operators (LOT 787's, Hifly A343's, and classics like 742's years ago)

Shuffield still is. Was recently down there and it's pretty much all Brit. The Canex store is almost all British products.

There is not as much traffic through YEG out to camp wainwright but they still have a full time contingent as well.

Wow, you can fly to some weird European destinations from YUL.

Nantes? Basel? Toulouse?

I get that these are cities in the Francophonie (well Basel isn't, but it's close to Mulhouse), but these are pretty small places. It would be like flying from Toronto to Cardiff or Bristol.

Air Transat flew Toronto-Cardiff and Canada 3000, Toronto-Bristol

I wonder if the recent incident on that United Flight will push Garneau into including a ban on overbooking in the upcoming passenger bill of rights.

DrNest Apr 11, 2017 5:41 PM

I've got a vague recollection of Thomson flying the Bristol-Toronto route with a B767 in the early 2000s too.

I've been on several overbooked flights within Canada in particular and I've never heard of or seen anything like that. Airlines have to protect their margins and LF's and overbooking is a way to manage that. This incident strikes me as a typical American approach to problem solving - unapologetic aggression. For United to say they followed protocol is just plain insulting and wrong. The flight should never have been boarded if the crew desperately needed to be in Louisville and they needed to bump four passengers.

On a recent flight from YEG to YYZ, AC oversold by four and asked for volunteers. It took 45 minutes and the flight was delayed but we didn't board until the overbooking was resolved.

TorontoDrew Apr 11, 2017 8:34 PM

I was just reading that flights technically never get overbooked anymore. The majority of times where they need seats is when the airline is trying to transport crew from one airport to another, and or in a few cases when trying to help people make connecting flights. They are saying this United Flight was trying to do just that, transport 2 United crew members from point A to point B. Actual overbooking probably has rarely happened since computers were introduced to minimize such errors.
