Okay cool.

All I was getting at is that the route network is pretty diverse. If you were trying to get to Vancouver, even with the cancellations, the frequency of flights would make that re-booking pretty crazy.

If you were trying to get to, I dunno, Prince George, Nanaimo or any other place where there is a lack of frequency or service or perhaps its Encore or something. Maybe that would give context in the round'about way you were re-booked. Not saying it is right, just that it may help understand why you were re-booked the way you were and what solutions there are for your situation.

YYC moving ahead with central deicing facility which makes all kinds of sense. The location doesn't look ideal for aircraft using the west runway but other than that this makes all kinds of sense. Unions are predictably not happy about it.

Good job Aeromag, they spray with twice the fluid they need to which is what created the mess that justified this in the first place.

Unbelievable amount of overspray and incompetence with their vehicles blocking other traffic, etc.

Not a union fan at all, but I don’t doubt that there will be a single provider and the costs will go up, and that will get passed on to airlines and passengers. It will also often cause additional delays and increased greenhouse gases due to aircraft running and having to taxi to and from the CDF, as opposed to being sprayed at the gate while engines are shutdown.

But I expect YYC airport authority will increase their revenue, so as long as they’re happy....

That's a pretty long drive from the west gates, isn't it? How much extra time would it add taxiing over there, getting sprayed, then having to taxi back to the west runway, vs being gate sprayed? Airlines can't be all that happy with it?

It's not that long a taxi. There will only be issues twice a day: 10 am and 11 pm, when 15 flights leave at the same time. Might be a bit of a traffic jam in that corner.

The loser is WestJet who saved quite a bit of gas by not having to run their engines during spray. That said, WestJet is the least disciplined airline on the field by FAR when it comes to APU usage, so they don't care anyway and like throwing money down the drain.
