If you have evidence to the contrary, e.g. that the cancelled flights were empty, then post it here. Otherwise you're also making assumptions and speculating. Pot. Kettle. Black.
As always you shoot from the hip without bothering to read the linked article or even just the snippet I quoted. That's all the evidence a reasonable person with basic English comprehension skills needsYou also do not know if anyone is getting or not getting refunds on the recently announced flights.
Read what I actually wrote rather than making up nonsense. For example anyone who wants to fly to say Frankfurt would be better off to book an AC flight on LH's site as a code-share rather than directly with AC. If the flight gets cancelled, they're eligible for a refund. If they booked the same flight on AC's site all they'd get is a voucher. Same plane. Same seat. Same price. Same crew. Same food. Very different result.As for you taking other airlines for international flights, go for it. Take a code shared flight and still sit on Air Canada aircraft...that'll show them LOL
Oh and did you read (and comprehend!) the adjective "overseas" in my post? (I used that adjective twice just in case you might miss it the first time. Evidently that still wasn't enough )Oh and, if you need to fly within Canad, find that code shared flights
