Interesting... glad to see they are rolling this out! I think they are still awaiting space on the island are they not?
This announcement made me think that AC is not optimistic about a speedy resolution of the island fiasco.
They are redeploying the aircraft to other routes ex YYZ.
These Q400s are not from the stock acquired by AC for YTZ operation, rather these Q400s are from the Jazz order for 10 aircraft. Aircraft were to arrive in May 2011, so either the date has been pushed back to July or the aircraft are to be flown on route proving and training operations for May and June.
AC regional (Jazz and Skyservice) is to have 15 Q400s. 10 are Jazz colored and a another 5 are for Skyservice. The 5 skyservice a/c are exLinx Aviation (Frontier). Jazz aircraft are new off the production line.
Its dissappointing the Jazz Q400s are to be used on the YYZX runs. I had hoped for the aircraft to be based out of YYC and fly to YLW, YEG, YXE, YMM etc. These routes could use more seats at peak times.
Centre of the Universe babeee!! Centre of the Universe!!!
Since you have relatives in the Peg, you should know that the geographical center of NA is close to Winnipeg.
True, but as we all know, the geographical centre of the universe and the magnetic centre of the universe are in different places.
All compasses point to Toronto.
So where do you consider Leslieville to be the centre of?
Leslieville?????? Who cares
Those that don't know the point of the question, nobody cares, of course.
Let's get this thread back on topic, shall we?
Nice to see the routes announced, it'll be interesting to see if any of them get shifted out west or to the north. Yellowknife/Whitehorse are on CRJs and both could likely support a bit more capacity (CRA) but it'd be interesting ot see AC swap out the RJs for Qs on these routes as the competition all fly 737s.
Who is the competition on those routes, other than WS (who has no choices other than 737s)? Or is WS what you meant?
I think they will migrate either more CRJ's or 319's to do some of the flying to YMM,etc. They are flying moslty full ERJ90's ex YYZ to YMM and its just a matter of time before they allow YYC/YEG to get larger metal for some of those routes north.
Have observed that Porter has added capacity in Ontario on routes currently served almost exclusively by Jazz.
Windsor and Soo have picked up service and Sudbury gets more flights.
Would it not be prudent for Jazz to compete with their new aircraft on time slots that may overlap?
Centre of the Raccoon universe!
New aircraft are higher-capacity, so it might actually not make sense if the loads are not there. A Q400 costs more to fly than a DH3, even though the per-passenger cost is lower. Jazz has to be careful, just like I hope Porter is being, that they don't start digging holes so quickly they can't climb out of them when loads are high.
Would have been nice to get a route out west some where to check out the new air craft, oh well maybe some day yet.
How come the Q400s seats are different in design from the regular AC seats (the blue waves)
