Air Canada on CNN Business Traveller

Not sure if anyone has seen the ad on CNN regarding the upcoming CNN Business Traveller program on Air Canada.

I just saw a short clip with Richard Quest interviewing Calin and other AC management executives. Looks interesting and well done.

The program ďCNN Business Traveller: Air Canada Past, Present and FutureĒ will air Saturday January 9, 2 PM in Hong Kong, 6 am GMT. I will try to find a weblink.

Several years ago, while watching TV somewhere in an European hotel room, I saw Richard Quest interview with AC execs showcasing the XM J pods.
I guess this is a new one (hopefully).

Yes it is a new one, you can hear Calin talking about the Covid crisis in the short segment and how Air Canada is adjusting to this new reality.

Cool, gtk. Thanks for sharing. Probably won't be able to view it (might not be around a computer/screen/phone/ipad or TV at the time), but looking forward to some episode reviews here.

The episode lasted 30 minutes and included footage of a previous Air Canada episode from February 2020, just before the pandemic.
Richard Quest interviewed Calin and there was an interview from Paula Newton, CNN correspondent in Canada, with Andrew Yiu, VP Product at Air Canada.
Footage included the onboard business class covid box offering and how Air Canada is adjusting to the pandemic.
Also lots of scenes from a near empty Montreal Trudeau airport.
I will try to find on the Internet a weblink for this program, worth watching in my opinion.

I’ve got the episode in 720p MP4 format.

Any hosting ideas that won’t break the bank or get me arrested for IP violations?

I’d rather not host it.

For the record, the program is not an example of softball journalism... it’s tee-ball journalism. I was waiting for Quest to throw rose petals at Rovinescu’s feet. There’s also very little subject matter in the piece that any regular FTer won’t know.

Methinks this was somewhat similar to the XM one Quest did several years ago... nothing new learned on that one either but for some lame reason I find watching these things quite cathartic! Plus always nice to see a former fellow FTer on TV!

Was it this 2013 one?
