Il y a 6 heures, thenoflyzone a dit :

and it was good because it was handled by the federal government.

Maybe the federal government should handle passports, they would solve that mess...

thenoflyzone, I hear your frustration, but I’m going to point out that if ADM had kept 10/28 active in order to completely shut one of the 24s for 6 months of focused rehab through a summer season, then either of the two remaining open runways could just as easily have been shut for emergency repairs during peak summer ops, as 24R was this week, leading to similar ground delays. I truly don’t think you can compare this to our usual Quebec construction circus.

Touché. 

But we are talking about a different subject entirely.

Yes, the federal government f***ed up the handling of the passports.

This being said, I applied for my son's passport last March and received it in June, more or less within the timelines they had on their website. 

It's worth noting as well, that people didn't help the situation by applying for a passport way too late, or by booking fake travel plans in order to get their passport right away, delaying the process even more for those of us following the rules.

Nope. I don't buy that argument.

For one, 24R was in much better shape in 2018, when work started, than it is today. Same for 24L. And therefore, the need for emergency repair work was far less back then.

Look, we can sit and argue about this all day long. Let's agree to disagree. I think the entire project of resurfacing 24R was poorly planned out, and even moreso poorly executed. Nothing you say will change that in my book.

So Shanghai not operating?  Am I reading that correctly?  

That's how I read it.  Both out of YUL and YYZ.  

Disappointing to see some capacity cuts (although some offsetting gains)... economic conditions will be interesting over the coming year to say the least.
