As I understood it, the update was to reprogram FADEC so that it would avoid power settings that...

Yep, in the short/medium term this seems impossible. In the long term it struck me as being implausible. I can only dream about a future air travel market in which such a thing might be possible. I...

AC insider told me 767s will disappear from rouge fleet quickly (very "accelerated" retirement). Expect to see rouge 777s on such routes.

The "NITE" fares were introduced long before the 1990s. I remember doing YYZ-MIA RT departing YYZ around midnight, departing MIA around 4am. These were branded as "Nitehawk" flights and the fare was...

The prorated value of my unused flight credits stands at about $40k. It's starting to look likely that it won't be possible to use any of these.

If AC were acting in "really good faith" I would...

At first I figured this flight would be largely useless because of its lack (twice weekly) of frequency. But I've already used it 4 times this winter. So I would love to see it extended into the...

Just noticed the daily YVR-OGG/HNL flight is now showing 789 service starting May 1 thru to July. No Omni, no rouge, which pleasantly surprised me. Perhaps due to the China cancellations. (Starting...

I didn't ask that specific question but got the impression it was a case of AC being extra cautious and keeping operations as simple as possible. I'm guessing that manual control of thrust might also...

Yep. I'm not an "expert" but I've heard enough from a well-placed source to form an opinion that this is more than just gossip. Not just A320 family. Also think A330/A350.
