Then what are we subsidizing?: Air Canada cutting more than 15% of its summer flight schedule
Toronto Sun: 'Air Canada is cutting more than 15 per cent of its scheduled flights in July and August as airports face lengthy delays and cancellations amid an overwhelming travel resurgence.
'The move will see 154 flights per day on average dropped from the airline’s schedule — already operating at 80 per cent of pre-pandemic levels — affecting hundreds of thousands of passengers. The flights link mainly to its Toronto and Montreal hubs, and are all on domestic or Canada-U.S. routes, the company said in an email Wednesday.'
If Air Canada can't compete or live up to expectations, taxpayers shouldn't be required to prop it up. Let the free market correct for incompetence and let effective, lean airlines take over.
