I also don't think taxi chits can be used for cost recoverable travel.
That is complicated, if I'm just going around in Ottawa from one building to another. Taxi chit is way easier.

If I am on a travel claim and heading to the airport, it's another matter. Uber and taxi are basically the same effort to claim.

Of course it's easier for local travel. But since we're in a thread talking about planes and airports logically my mindset is travel involving those.

The flight is definitely not subsidized. In fact, 5-6 years ago it ran at 2x one summer.

I think this might have something to do with the influx of new CR9s coming to Jazz plus the repatriation of CRJs from Air Georgian.

The source I'm quoting is this post: http://skyscraperpage.com/forum/show...postcount=7454 in this thread: http://skyscraperpage.com/forum/show...53826&page=373 - just found out about this thread.

As of yesterday, none of the schedule changes this person posted had been uploaded to AC's online booking engine yet. Either the person is an AC insider or has access to a GDS where the changes are already showing up. As I suspected, places like YQT, YFC and YQM are getting either partially or wholly Rouged with the 4 new A320s from WoW coming onboard, which frees up Q400s, which is freeing up DH3s/CRJs.

Great! Thanks for passing that information along to me. I am always a fan of route increases and capacity increases for our airport!

Air Canada Timetable

Use the manual search and not the downloadable timetable.

Awesome, thanks and yes the YYG is 2x on weekends too!

Here's the new Rapidair flight taking it to 18x on weekdays:
AC 474 YYZ-YOW 1640-1742
AC 465 YOW-YYZ 1830-1932

Rapidair equipment breakdown is as follows:
Weekdays:
320 6x
E90 11x
763 1x

Saturdays:
7M8 1x
320 5x
E90 8x
763 1x

Sundays:
7M8 2x
320 6x
E90 7x
763 1x

Other AC changes not already noted:
  • YHZ stays at 5x, but goes all CR9. That's actually a very slight decrease in seats due to the Q400 seating 78 vs 76 on the CR9. Last summer was a mix of DH4 and CR9;
  • YFC is a DH3 this summer as previously noted vs CRJ last summer = same seat capacity;
  • YQB, as has been the case for many years, does in fact remain at 1x daily except Saturdays over the summer, but is upgauged from a DH1 to a DH3;
  • To YUL: Is showing as 8x/day (7x Saturdays) broken down as: CRJ 3x, CR9 2x, DH3 2x (including a departure at 1340, which rotates the YFC/YXU DH3 / 1x DH3 on Sat) and 320 1x;
  • From YUL is showing as 9x (8x Saturdays)...hmmm: Same equipment as "To YUL" plus an E90 1x;
  • YXU is as previously reported upgauged from DH1 2x to DH3 1x & CRJ 1x;
  • YYC UPDATED: YYC is back up to 3x, including 2x 319 and 1x 320 = 1 flight upgauged from 319 on weekdays (3rd flight on weekends is an E90);
  • YEG is all E90 and only 1x on weekends - I don't remember whether it was like this last summer;
  • YVR as previously reported increases to 4x 320 vs 2x 321 & 1x 320 last summer = 136 more seats/day on the route; AND
  • No changes on transborder, including the 319s to MCO on weekends.

So there's this mystery extra E90 inbound from YUL in the schedule still. Wonder what will happen with that? I'm guessing it's an error and will be pulled.

Overall, there's a small, but decent bump in AC's capacity for this coming summer domestically.

Retweet it and get the word out. Propose to Flair to not just have them add a couple of flights here, but to make YOW their YEG east!
