Can anyone tell me what's going on with YYJ??

Seattle last year would have had both Delta and Horizon (Alaska). Delta is pulling out.

The United flight to San Francisco is gone.

AC keeps adjusting what it is doing on the flight to Toronto. Rouge 767, A321 etc. Adding Montreal.

Flight options out of Nanaimo are also increasing. There are probably fewer people from Duncan etc. coming down to YYJ.

It makes sense. Thanks for the answer...!

Air Canada just posted the route changes until January due to MAX grounding:

https://www.aircanada.com/ca/en/aco/...e-closure.html


Some of the changes are missing... and also some routes from YUL and YYZ that was originally planned (not announced) to be de-rouged are now re-rouged again, which was not mentioned in the list :D

However, seems like some of the YVR and YYC reduction are from the (unannounced) planned increase this winter, rather than reduction from last winter.

Jetlines has rebranded. Looks quite sharp and current IMO.

Current? Looks like a 70s department stores' branding and a copycat of easyjet.

Was kind of a foregone conclusion, since AC bumped up their offer from 13$ a share to 18$ a share, for a total of $720 million, up 38% from their previous offer.

Let’s see what conditions the government and the competition Bureau will impose on AC/TS.

Well ya. Their branding has to say "low cost."

Two news releases of note.

1. Canada and Chile expand their bilateral air agreement.

https://www.canada.ca/en/transport-c...ith-chile.html

Quote:

The original Canada-Chile agreement entered into force in February 2005 and provides an unlimited number of direct flights for airlines between both countries.

The expanded agreement includes:

More flexibility to operate “fifth freedom” passenger services, which allow airlines to stop in third countries to pick up and discharge passengers en route to the final destination in Canada or Chile;
A fully open and flexible code-sharing regime, including with third-country airlines. Code-sharing occurs when an air carrier sells seats on a flight operated by another air carrier, allowing it to expand its network and product offerings; and
A fully open all-cargo regime, including unlimited fifth freedom rights.
These amendments take effect immediately.
================================================================

2. Transport Canada to conduct a public interest assessment regarding proposed purchase of Transat A.T. Inc. by Air Canada

https://www.canada.ca/en/transport-c...ir-canada.html

Quote:

On July 17, Air Canada and Transat A.T. Inc. notified the Honourable Marc Garneau, Minister of Transport, of a proposed transaction whereby Air Canada would acquire Transat A.T. Inc. This notification was in accordance with the mergers and acquisitions provisions of the Canada Transportation Act.

The Minister of Transport has determined that the transaction raises public interest issues related to national transportation. As such, a public interest assessment of the proposed transaction will be conducted with input from the Commissioner of Competition, who will assess impacts on competition.

The public interest assessment will include targeted consultations with the air industry and other stakeholders, other levels of government and the public, as well as an analysis of the economic benefits or challenges resulting from the proposed transaction. Consultation will begin on November 4, 2019.

Under the Canada Transportation Act, Transport Canada has up to 150 days to complete this public interest assessment. However, the Minister has the authority to grant an extension should extra time be necessary. Considering the size and scope of the proposed transaction, an extra 100 days has been granted to both Transport Canada and the Commissioner of Competition, to ensure sufficient time for thorough analysis and assessment.

The Department now has 250 days (until May 2, 2020) to complete the public interest assessment and provide it to the Minister. The Minister would then provide a recommendation to the Governor in Council (Cabinet) concerning the proposed purchase. The Minister’s recommendation would incorporate the findings of the Commissioner’s report on competition considerations. There is no legislated timeline for the Minister to make his recommendation or for the Governor in Council to make a final decision.
Basically, it could be another year or two before this merger is finalized.

More likely punting it to after the election.

It's a potential election issue? :shrug:

I don’t think so. The election is in 2 months. It was a given this thing wasn’t going to get approved before the election.

Even if Marc Garneau gave TC the minimum required 150 days to complete the public assessment, we would be well past the election date.

But make no mistake, the federal government is going to roll over and give Air Canada exactly what it wants like they always do. :rolleyes:
