    Air Canada has filed an application with Transport Canada to reduce the number of flight attendants required on its narrow-body aircraft, similar to an exemption its rival, WestJet Airlines Ltd., received earlier this month.

    The country’s largest carrier argues the move would bring the amount of flight attendants required on its North American narrow-body flights in line with international standards, and that it did not expect it would result in any layoffs. The move would see the number of flight attendants required on its North American Airbus and Embraer narrow-body flights fall to one per 50 passengers instead of one per 40 passengers currently.

    They probably figure it will save a lot in catering costs, since they won't be able to do a complete drink/snack service, let along bring seconds.
    :D

  3. Westjet filed the exact same request a week or so ago.
