I saw this on the news. My only questions is, how many times the cost of an affordable sedan (ie Mazda 3) is this going to cost?

MSRP on the Mazda is $17k. So, 2.5 Mazdas.

Air Canada is not that sophisticated. They are only really good at throwing peoples bag's around and dropping them from walkways.

Clearly despite their so called 'awards' they are simply a glossed over budget airline playing in the first world.

Thankfully however, their planes do not go missing for no reason!

I'll go ahead and say that will not be one of my flight options. Ever. I wonder how many miles that must cost

I read somewhere that a ticket Abu Dhabi-New York would be around 26K return. They were comparing that to the cost of a private jet which would be 100k. Even though they weren't saying that a private jet is not for one person only...

Poor Air Canada. They were so slow handling our bags at Pearson last April that we missed our connection home and they had to pay for a hotel and dinner for us. This time, Global Entry should speed things up. No more bag inspections.

If it happens again, I'm going to avoid Pearson on all future flights.

Global entry won't help.

What helps is to get rid of the UNION. They SUCK BALLZ. Yes, I have unions and all they represent.

Cmon people... fair wage for fair work. Slack off like most do in that airline and yes, you get nada. VENT over.

I wish people just got back to the basics and worked hard for an honest day's wage.
