You’re offended that I labelled Japan and India as superstitious nations?

Or that I linked to an article that does?

Or the voodoo stuff?

 

There's certainly an inherent implication that you feel like countries like Japan and India are inferior because they "don't follow the science". Yet completely ignoring that impacts are being felt by US carriers, British Airways, etc.

Somebody has to make jokes around here, a change from all the arguing in the Covid thread.

If that was a joke, it wasn't funny.

Just another reason why I avoid that thread as much as possible.

While that generally is true, I make a deliberate point not to visit the COVID threads.

Highly anticipated stats!

 

It looks like the year ended with just under 674,000 passengers, a 17% increase over 2020 but 67% below 2018's record-setting 2.05 million: https://victoria.cit...elow-2018-peak/

 

Now we wait to see how Quebec City ended the year.

Sea-Tac Airport braces for flight chaos as 5G launch nears

 

Seattle-Tacoma International Airport will limit flights under some weather conditions as the FAA and phone carriers sort out the launch of 5G. Airlines have raised concerns that the latest generation of wireless phone technology may interfere with aircraft radar altimeters, which help planes navigate in low-visibility situations.

 

 

 

 

Any chance we can just "follow the science" and determine if this really is an issue or not?

They have been using 5G in Europe for quite some time without any problems. But, and its a big but, their 5G is half the power and at a lower frequency than the US is putting in. Also in Europe they protect the last 90 seconds of flight on the approach with shielding where in the US they only shield the last 20 seconds of flight.


Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.

Never heard of this crash until today.  Interesting.

 

 

 

As the aircraft flew straight into the third peak of Mt. Slesse well in excess of cruising speed – and crashed in remote and dangerously inhospitable territory – very little information could be gleaned from the wreckage itself as to the cause of what was then the worst aircraft calamity in Canadian history. The wreckage and remains of the passengers and crew were left on the mountain at the crash site (though body parts found during the Coroner's inquiry were interred in two common graves on the mountainside), and despite years of erosion and avalanche, remains of the aircraft can be seen to this day.

Imagine, buried in a "mass grave" in 1956!  The horrors!

For many Canadians, the Omicron variant wasn't going to stop their holiday travel plans.

 

Despite the federal government's advisory against travelling outside of Canada amid surging COVID-19 cases taking effect midway through December, last month saw more international travel to and from Canada than any other period since the start of the pandemic.

 

Data collected by the Canada Border Services Agency and the Public Health Agency of Canada shows that 742,400 Canadians flew back into the country through Canadian airports in December. That's a nearly eight-fold increase from December 2020, which only saw 93,800 Canadian travellers.

Mike, what's the chances of a interview with the VAA CEO. Haven't heard much from them about the outlook of YYJ.

Be interested in why the decline on air cargo thru YYJ over the years, even with Amazon right nwxt door. 

I get capital projects are on hold. But 50 million short, whats the plans these days, are passenger numbers so low cause of Omnicom solely? 

Highly anticipated stats!

It has been almost six months since Victoria International posted any news to its website.

 

We've had a year-end since then, etc. Is there just that little going on?

You might even say they will SOAR over Alaska and JetBlue.
