Are they repainting all their aircraft to Air Canada livery? LOL
The Government cannot give to anybody anything that the Government does not first take from somebody else.

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

In the past year????
And if 60% full was before this, that is the reason they are losing money and up for sale.

Depends on if Air Canada's logo-painting hangar is considered an "essential service"...

Before covid i think they were at 98%. Hard to beat. Even last summer they were well above North America average (almost 70% vs 36% for NA average)

YYZ to YYC was full Friday
YYC to YVR was full Friday
YVR to YYC was full Monday
YYC to YYZ was probably 50-60% Monday

YYZ to LIS 60%
LIS to YYZ 80-90% which was surprising usually this leg is emptier

It's unfortunate regarding job loss, but travelling is super spreading

These restrictions will do irreparable damage to our airline industry. Getting in and out of Canada is about to become extremely difficult. I'm very grateful I got out when I did, as I can see options slowly vanishing.

That's a contradiction....

Yeah, this restaurant will be around in a year if everybody STOPS EATING THERE. Sure....

Same thing. No customers, no revenue, not enough cash in the bank, means bye-bye to the business. Any business, not just airlines.

I guess they got heads-up about Mexico imposing more restrictions and the EU has already banned entry from most places and even within EU, countries are banning travel within EU

Transat doesn't have many destinations for leisure
As of January 25, all bars, clubs and discos will be shut as the Cancun and Riviera Maya region

maybe the airline industry need to rethink their strategy by not overselling and provide no service

The airline industry is giving you what you want...cheap flights. Want service, pay more. Want more seats on flights, fly more to the destinations.
Overbooking is not the norm anymore and I believe if they overbook, there is significant compensation to the traveler now.

Not related to this topic. but in flight, do they still let people sit next to each other or there is empty seat between passengers?
