Not sure about this part. The Classic and Q are quite different and are seperate. I know a few ex-classic dash pilots for Jazz and they never flew the Q.

Sounds like their first destinations will be YYC, YOW, YYZ & YVR. Will be interesting to see if they go point-to-point or hub & spoke. My guess is the latter.

Interesting article about the waste of slot squatting in Europe in Canada's Skies Magazine: https://www.wingsmagazine.com/near-e...landing-slots/

Quote:

Europe’s sky is filling up with near-empty polluting planes that serve little other purpose than safeguarding airlines’ valuable time slots at some of the world’s most important airports.

The highly contagious omicron variant of COVID-19 has put many off flying, and because of it, getting people and goods from point A to point B has become an afterthought for thousands of flights. It has created strange bedfellows, with environmentalists and major airlines united to cut down on empty or near-empty flights by pressuring the European Union — a pledged global leader in combating climate change — to tweak the rules on airport slots.

^ In a world where we are routinely badgered by e-mail signatures that say "Think Twice Before Printing", that is absolutely nuts. It sort of makes me wonder why I bother hauling out the recycling when you have empty planes flying for no other reason than to keep an airport slot.

Some recycling pollutes more than just throwing it away. Green washing is a thing. But flying planes empty is scandalous.

I was expecting 4 or maybe even 5 routes in total for good utilization of the first three planes. YVR-YYC and YYC-YYZ would have good utilization but I don't see them flying to YOW daily, which isn't really much use of three planes (unless they fly say 2x daily YYC-YVR/YYZ and daily or sub daily YYC-YOW)

If they hub at YYC, they can easily fly YYZ/YVR-YYC 2x daily and YOW-YYC daily and still have slack with 3 aircraft. The 2nd YYC-YYZ could be a red-eye, whereas YOW could be a RON.

We'll find out within the next few hours though the exact details.
