Yes, this was reported quite a while ago.

Flair are adding Saturday only YOW-YYJ to match WS and adding 3x weekly YOW-YYG to compete with AC’s daily DH4.

Porter have announced daily YQM-YTZ and YFC-YTZ as a compliment to the existing daily YFC-YOW-YTZ route. They have also announced 3x daily YHZ-YTZ nonstop complimenting the multiple daily YOW & YUL 1-stops.

A quick check. Porter has suspended service into YSJ. As stated above they have added capacity into the other two cities of New Brunswick. I have a feeling that they would not be able to compete with Flair and Swoop flights to Toronto. The market going to YYZ (Toronto in general) from YSJ is pretty flooded with flights.

Flair seems to be expanding pretty fast. Maybe I'm wrong but is this sustainable for them?

Looks like they're doing like they do with YYT and turning YSJ into a seasonal destination. Service resumes there 27MAR22.

PD service to YYT resumes on 01APR22.

Somewhat related to Hamilton Airport plans to double the lanes for Highway 6 is moving forward. This will further make the Airport more accessible.

According to the Aviation Herald / Mentour Pilot articles, on February 8 2022 a KLM Airbus A330 plane✈️was involved in tail strike departing Calgary YYC airport runway 29.But they did make it safely across the Atlantic to Amsterdam AMS with 216 passengers & 12 crew on board. After landing KLM’s ground crews at the gate notice damage and it was removed from service.

A KLM Airbus A330-300, registration PH-AKE performing flight KL-678 from Calgary,AB (Canada) to Amsterdam (Netherlands) with 216 passengers and 12 crew, departed Calgary's runway 29, when during rotation for takeoff the tail contacted the runway surface. The crew remained unaware of the tail strike, however, a burning odour was noticed in the cabin immediately after becoming airborne. ATC was queried and suggested there may have been a tail strike. Cabin crew had not noticed anything unusual, the flight crew therefore decided to continue the flight to Amsterdam, where the aircraft landed without further incident.

The Canadian TSB reported:
During take-off on Runway 29, the tail contacted the runway surface during rotation. The flight crew were unaware a tail strike had occurred. They had detected a burning odor immediately after lift off and suspected the APU; it was a "bleeds off" take-off and the APU had been supplying conditioned air at the time of take-off. The flight crew consulted the ECAM 'wheel page' and 'APU page' and observed no abnormalities. ATC was queried and they suggested a possible tail strike. The cabin crew were consulted and they did not note anything unusual. The flight continued to EHAM with no further issues. When the aircraft arrived at the gate in EHAM, ground servicing crew noticed the damage to the underside of the empennage and the aircraft was removed from service for damage assessment.

The aircraft is still on the ground in Amsterdam about 10 days after the tail strike.

Plus 216 passengers from Calgary Canada to Amsterdam Netherlands,Europe for a February KLM flight is not too bad, with the Covid19 pandemic still on going.

Swoop making announcements like crazy for Summer, while WestJet mainline sits quietly in the shadows. Another week, and still no real changes to the Summer sked.

That is, unless WS really about to go from 4x weekly YYC-LON to 11x weekly in less than a week.

And here is the North American summer 2022 one:

https://aircanada-fr.mediaroom.com/2...-n9x5dZlnVZkyI

A couple new routes here: YUL-ATL and YUL-DTW, YYZ-SLC, YVR-AUS, etc...

I noticed that Air Canada's YHZ-LHR flight is a daylight flight (11:00 to 21:00). This is interesting to me as I believe (please correct me if I am wrong) that YYZ used to have the daytime slot. I wonder why AC switched them around. I assume business demand (for the lie-flats) is significantly higher for the overnight flights and folks can hit the ground running, as oppose to the entire day being taken for the flight across the Atlantic. Thanks!

Edit: They are also selling the business class cabin on the B737-MAX8 as Premium Economy. Have they always done this when they used narrow-body aircraft from YHZ/YYT to London?

AC probably switch around Halifax YHZ- London LHR to a daylight flight which makes more sense for them,as it will be competing with WestJet’s Halifax-London LGW (which is a night time red eye flight). YHZ- LGW will be resuming this Summer 2022 too on Boeing 737Max8.

Plus YHZ-London routings will be timed for some connecting passengers to fill the planes, both directions.

They always sell North American business class as Premium on transatlantic. Same thing with the business class in the Rouge aircraft when they had Rouge aircraft with the range to fly to Europe.

Not mention in the press release but seems to be loaded in the system is YUL-MSP one daily CR9 starting June 2nd. Is AC targeting Delta? Hehe! (ATL, DTW, SLC, MSP).

SignalHillHiker Feb 22, 2022 9:39 PM

I’m just never going to travel again I guess lol

There was healthy O&D pre-pandemic on all three routes (especially ATL), so with DL and other US carriers cutting back on Canada flying, it makes sense for AC to try and capitalize, even if they all happen to be DL fortress hubs.

2018 O&D numbers:

YUL-ATL : 78,000
YUL-DTW : 34,600
YUL-MSP : 39,400

WS increased YYC-FCO & YYZ-BCN to 4x weekly from mid-June through early September.

I guess they're confident Boeing will resume 787 deliveries before June.
