A photo of a certificate issued by Air Canada to Mrs. Linda Lewis confirming that Linda was a passenger on flight 187, December 31, 1969 which was the last commercial airline flight into the twin cities of Fort William and Port Arthur before they merged into the new city of Thunder Bay effective January 1, 1970.

The noted captain was W.H. Arem, First Officer J.W. Moanes, stewardesses J. Kucharski and C.M. White

Update on carry-on bags and Zone 6.

carry on tagWe recently trialed a number of initiatives to ensure our customers have space on board for their carry-on items. These included white carry-on bag tags identifying items that could be placed under seats, refocusing on checking bag sizes pre-security, as well as testing a trial process for boarding employees on non-revenue leisure travel in Zone 6.

The first two initiatives have been very successful. For example, on Montréal -Toronto flights we have seen a 50 per cent decrease in the number of bags checked at the gate and feedback from customers is positive.

The success of these initiatives means effective January 15, 2019, we can return to the zones previously used for non-revenue employee travel, although employees are still encouraged to check luggage when possible and to gate-check bags when flights are full and our agents are asking for volunteers.

Two of my friends recently left for a 3 week vacation in Mexico, and share this -

We have an almost three year old granddaughter, Isannah, that we are leaving behind.

She is quite used to meeting with her Nana and sometimes her Papa too, at least a couple of times a week.

tmb isannah 3Nana is so worried that Isannah isn’t going to understand that we are going to be away for 3 weeks, so she has devised a plan for that. Isannah loves "Paw Patrol", a kid’s cartoon about a team of Puppies that are out saving and helping the world one small adventure at a time. Anyways Nana has packed 2 of Isannah’s favorite stuffies of the 2 main characters of the show, "Chase" and "Sky", and she is going to take pictures of them as we wander along on our adventure. And then we messenger/e-mail them to Isannah, and having her Mother read the story or challenge that’s attached to each picture out to her.

So, Nana has taken pictures of them: when we left the house, on the ferry, at the airport watching the planes and as we boarded the plane. You get the idea. Now she is taking a picture on the plane before lift off… the stewardess and everybody around us notices what she is up to...

The flight attendant is a Nana too, and she is so tickled with Nana’s plan. She grabs "Sky" and "Chase" and takes them up to the front of the plane and has the 2 pilots pose for a picture in the cockpit with the stuffies.

Nana is so happy and the picture is awesome. Anyways I may mention them once in a while, but if you really want to follow along with the adventures of "Sky" and "Chase", you’ll have to get a hold of Isannah, and I’m sure she would be happy to add you to her ‘blog’ as well, LOL.

(Many more photos are being sent showing “Sky” and “Chase” posing in various places (ie. on a bus), sitting below a statue, at a supper table and on the beach etc. – eds)
