    Pickering Airport (Transport Canada/GTAA, Proposed)

    You are clearly being rude and mocking Mark in many of your replies. Offending others is your passion, I get it. No need to ask more people to push back and erase fair and honest opinions.

    Pickering Airport (Transport Canada/GTAA, Proposed)

    ANA is rumoured to come to YYZ in the near future. https://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1420453 Bringing up ANA is just an example of the increasing Asian carriers that are coming in recent years (HU, CZ, CX increasing flights, etc.). This simply illustrates the attractiveness of...

    Pickering Airport (Transport Canada/GTAA, Proposed)

    Of course, and that's why I said once ANA comes to Pearson, slot constraints are even tighter. I did not say ANA will come to Hamilton or Pickering, that would be a disastrous decision. Correct, this is precisely the role of the new airports. By definition, fleeing out of Pearson and using...

    Pickering Airport (Transport Canada/GTAA, Proposed)

    I don't think I was talking about regional destinations but the fact that airlines use regional jets to serve destinations, they are different in nature. I've flown to Houston in a half empty CRJ, let me know how AC will fill 130 seats overnight. Yes, the fact that interpreting sarcasm is a...

    Pickering Airport (Transport Canada/GTAA, Proposed)

    Thunder Bay does not represent the entire regional market, exceptions and outliers will always exist. Almost seems like you are trying to sharply falsify any suggestions/opinions. The idea here is not to draw the line between who is right and who is wrong. An intelligent conversation enables...

    Pickering Airport (Transport Canada/GTAA, Proposed)

    There is no way an airline will cut capacity when they are ordering new aircraft to update their fleet unless they are in financial ruins. This type of increase in seat count is typical for airlines all around the world, but do you see them reducing any frequency as a result of this capacity...

    Pickering Airport (Transport Canada/GTAA, Proposed)

    Upgauging cannot happen fast enough and you simply can't expect to be constantly upgauging every single route. That's why even if AC is able change their aircraft, it can't guarantee future slot availability. Think of it as traffic down a highway: you expand new lanes but you are only inducing...

    Pickering Airport (Transport Canada/GTAA, Proposed)

    In fact yes, natural seat growth is prevalent during peak periods, upgauging does not imply reduction in frequency necessarily. It is quite common for AC and WS to swap their usual larger aircrafts with the smaller ones in winter/off-peak and redistribute those larger birds to the...

    Pickering Airport (Transport Canada/GTAA, Proposed)

    I don't think I've said anything about upgauging to replace smaller aircraft. In fact, as you've pointed out almost a quarter of all movements are performed by these regional aircraft. Narrowbody movements (A320s, 737s) almost dominate entire morning to noon departure boards.

    GO Transit Electrification (Metrolinx, Proposed)

    But neither of them are electric. I wonder how much of a reduction in noise (especially low frequency hums) these EMU trains can provide.

    Pickering Airport (Transport Canada/GTAA, Proposed)

    There is a fundamental problem with how airline operates its routes. If upgauging aircraft is so effective they would be sending 777s for every domestic route. But thats not nearly economical as having 10 daily ERJ/CRJ flights. This is also why the 787 has beaten the A380 in the past decade or...

    SmartTrack (Proposed)

    Don't forget that transit ridership is a complex function of stops on the line, frequency, as well as fares. By "complex" it means that simply considering the effects of adding of stops but not taking into consideration of increases/decrease of frequency and increasing/lowering of fares is very...

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    Yes! There can also be more benefits of a continuous elevated/bridge structure as the vehicles experiences less slopes/inclines. At the end of the day, any form of grade separation that avoids mixing these trains with car/human traffic is palatable to the riders.

    Pickering Airport (Transport Canada/GTAA, Proposed)

    We can all agree that unless Pearson start to significantly upgrade its gates in T1&T3 there will be a serious capacity issue (those wide body jets just can't get ahold of jet bridges anymore). How is the region going to make up for this shortage? How does splitting Pearson's traffic not...

    GO Transit Electrification (Metrolinx, Proposed)

    The other night I was waiting at the cellphone parking lot at Pearson and can't help but notice the insanely loud noises coming from the UP express trains. No they are not just track noise, they are mostly low frequency diesel engine noises which can be so much louder (more than a squeaky TTC...

    Pickering Airport (Transport Canada/GTAA, Proposed)

    Assuming your stats are correct it still does not justify for a large international airport in Hamilton. Pearson is in Mississauga which is very west of the 404/DVP and for people to drive there from the east GTA can be extremely onerous considering how jam-packed the 401 always is (this is...
