airlines can't earn money for it, u know the gas is the major part of the
operation cost, and then airport landing fee, employee's wage etc~~
So far, most of the airlines in Canada affected due to the operation cost
is still keeping high~~
However, do u guys think Harper's government can allow international
carriers to join the competition for the Canadian Domestic market?? I hope
so, becoz' it can speed up for Air Canada and Westjet to keeping improve
their current services~~
