It's a relative analysis. If one route has 70% loading seasonally-adjusted while another has 85% loading year-round, then the 70% route would have a poor load.

Old ladies and new routes to spur WestJet profit

CALGARY, Alberta, June 11 (Reuters) - Charging "little old ladies" to carry excess baggage on its planes and adding new routes are some of the ways WestJet Airlines Ltd. plans to boost its profit, the company's president said on Monday.

WestJet has grown into the largest domestic competitor to Air Canada since starting up 11 years ago and expects to grow again by nearly half by the end of the decade.

While focusing on increasing its reach and the size of its fleet, the company said other items -- what it calls "ancillary revenues" -- are also becoming increasingly important.

Those items include things like baggage fees, vacation packages, inflight services and other non-fare items, some of which used to be provided free.

"There would be a little old lady coming up and she'd have a table and she'd have a chair and she'd have six or seven bags and we'd say 'Yeah, take it on the plane. No problem'," Sean Durfy, WestJet's president, said in a presentation broadcast over the Internet.

"Now we're actually going to charge a little bit of money for taking that table and chair and those extra bags on board. And that incremental revenue that we extract from that little old lady is very, very profitable to us. Some 85 percent goes to the bottom line."

The Calgary-based airline said last month that the sale of those ancillary items rose 66 percent in the first quarter of this year, to nearly C$23 million ($21.7 million).

Increasing ancillary fees is just one of the ways the airline plans to expand its revenues. WestJet will also add between six and nine aircraft a year to the end of the decade, bringing its fleet of Boeing 737s to 92 by 2010, up from 65 at the end of March.

Now offering 35 destinations, mostly within Canada, Durfy said WestJet plans to be among the world's top five airlines internationally by 2016.

"When we start looking at some of the opportunity where our ... aircraft can fly today, we haven't even tapped the market," he said. "We believe we can be an international player within 10 years."

WestJet will also focus on increasing its share of the business market, looking to tap U.S. business travelers flying to Canada from destinations like Phoenix, Arizona.

WestJet goals soaring to 'lofty' heights
BRENT JANG
TRANSPORTATION REPORTER
June 12, 2007
Barely nine months into his job as WestJet Airlines Ltd. president, Sean Durfy is aiming high by striving to turn the company into a leading international carrier by 2016.

WestJet, launched in 1996 as a regional carrier serving Western Canada, has ambitions to run an extensive schedule of foreign routes, he told analysts yesterday during the airline's first "investor day" webcast from its Calgary hangar.

"I've had a lot of analysts talk to me about this vision. We need to shoot for something. We need to have a tremendously lofty goal, and this is lofty - this is to be one of the top five airlines internationally by 2016," Mr. Durfy said.

WestJet now flies to 26 domestic destinations, 11 transborder markets (including Hawaii) and its lone scheduled sun spot is the Bahamas, which was added to the airline's network last November.

Mr. Durfy said WestJet wouldn't measure its international success based on fleet size or revenue, but on "different metrics" such as on-time performance, baggage transfer, customer satisfaction and unit costs and profit.

WestJet expects to add Caribbean sites within a couple of years, sticking to its strategy of running Boeing 737s. The carrier now operates 65 Boeing 737s, but has placed 20 orders to expand the fleet to 85 by the end of 2009.

If the airline were to either buy or lease Boeing 787 Dreamliners, overseas destinations could conceivably be added in 2016 or earlier.

Mr. Durfy said existing rules governing WestJet's partnership with the Air Miles loyalty program are set to expire in 2009, clearing the way for the airline to start its own frequent-flier plan, although no decision has been made yet.

On consumer fees, he said WestJet wants to increase its "ancillary revenue" because various charges help strengthen finances. "There would be a little old lady coming up and she'd have a table and she'd have a chair and she'd have six or seven bags, and we'd say, 'Take it on the plane, no problem.' Now, we're actually going to charge a little bit of money for taking that table and chair and extra bags on board. That incremental revenue that we extract from that little old lady is very, very profitable to us."

Clive Beddoe, WestJet's chairman and chief executive officer, said the airline will be methodical in carrying out its growth strategy.

"I see ample opportunity for us to continue to add aircraft. We will do it in a disciplined fashion. We're not going to rush out and buy 30 airplanes next year," said Mr. Beddoe, who relinquished the president's title to Mr. Durfy last September.

Fluffy and Fido grounded as Air Canada bans pets

OTTAWA, June 21 (Reuters) - Sorry Fluffy. Tough luck, Fido. Air Canada will be banning all pets from its passenger planes from July 15 this year.

The airline decided to stop carrying cats and dogs in the cargo hold because of increasing load factors as well as tighter security measures that are leading people to check more bags, said airline spokesman Peter Fitzpatrick.

"Animals in the hold actually reduce the amount of space we have for luggage because you've got to leave an area for ventilation or oxygen and as well they require extra handling," he said.

The airline stopped carrying pets in the cabin last September because of concerns over passengers with allergies. People who want to transport their pets after July 15 can use planes operated by Air Canada's cargo operation.

Fitzpatrick said the decision was not directly linked to the case of a Canadian doctor whose dog died of carbon monoxide poisoning while in the hold of a flight in early 2004. The plane was operated by a now defunct Air Canada subsidiary.

The Canadian Transport Agency (CTA) ruled in 2006 that the airline was not liable for the death of animals in its care.

Air Canada named favourite carrier by Canadian travel agents

MONTREAL, June 27 /CNW/ -- MONTREAL, June 27 /CNW Telbec/ - Air Canada has been chosen the favourite scheduled airline of Canada's travel agents in the Eighth Annual Agents' Choice Awards for the Canadian travel industry.

"Air Canada is honoured to have been named the favourite carrier by Canada's travel agents. We view travel agents as very important partners in our business and we are pleased that they similarly value our relationship," said Marc Rosenberg, Vice President Sales and Product Distribution at Air Canada. "It is especially gratifying that the award comes at a time when our business model is undergoing rapid change. We are very focused on ensuring that travel agents across Canada and the U.S. have access to our new products and can respond to customers' needs."

The 2007 Agents' Choice Awards for the Canadian travel industry are based on a readers' survey for Baxter Travel Media, publisher of Canadian Travel Press and Travel Courier, and is the largest sampling of travel agent and industry opinion in Canada. The findings are based on 4,032 votes in 19 different categories ranging from favourite airport to favourite tour operator. The survey was conducted through fax and online ballots over a 10-week period ending March 31, 2007.

Air Canada's achievements have been honoured recently by consumers and the industry. This year, Washington D.C.-based Air Transport World, gave Air Canada Air Transport World's Market Leadership Award based on the airline's success in implementing an innovative and transparent pricing structure, its use of online technology to meet consumers' needs and its fleet-wide renewal with a consistent, market-leading onboard product among North American airlines. Air Canada was also voted 'Best Airline in North America' and 'Best Airline in Canada' by readers of the U.S. frequent flyer magazine, Global Traveler, and the carrier was voted 'Best Business Class to Canada' by the readers of Business Traveler magazine. In addition, Air Canada President and CEO, Montie Brewer, was named one of the 25 most influential executives of 2006 by Business Travel News.

Montreal-based Air Canada provides scheduled and charter air transportation for passengers and cargo to more than 170 destinations on five continents. Canada's flag carrier is the 14th largest commercial airline in the world and serves 34 million customers annually with a fleet consisting of 335 aircraft. Air Canada is a founding member of Star Alliance, providing the world's most comprehensive air transportation network.

Toronto-based Baxter Travel Media is Canada's largest travel trade publishing company, producing such titles as Canadian Travel Press, and Travel Courier and the PressToday ( www.travelpress.com ) web site, as well as the consumer web site www.TravelBestBuys.com .

Air Canada's pet ban plan partly nixed
13 July 2007
The Toronto Star

Family pets still have time to collect Air Canada air miles, at least on international flights.

The Canadian Transportation Agency suspended an application filed by Air Canada looking to bar pets from its baggage compartments Wednesday afternoon, effectively delaying the controversial application on international flights for the time being.

"An official complaint was filed on June 22 by Mr. Peter T. Griffiths that prompted the investigation," said Jadrino Huot, Senior Communications Advisor of Canadian Transportation Agency.

The suspension affects flights between Canada and the U.S. as well as other international flights to and from Canada. Pets will still not be allowed on Air Canada domestic flights starting July 15 since the Canadian Transportation Agency does not have jurisdiction to take similar action with regards to domestic routes. Pets will have to travel through its cargo division.

"We will respond to the CTA on this matter," said Isabelle Arthur, spokesperson for Air Canada

"Air Canada will have to submit evidence to us within the next 30 days (about) why they think their proposed amendments to discontinue animals as checked baggage on international flights is reasonable, just and not unduly discriminatory," said Huot.

Marko Kulik, administrator and owner of pets.ca, a Canadian pet-lovers site, said his website has been inundated with angry pet owners questioning the new policy.

"I think a lot of people will be likely to make other airline choices," said Kulik.

Air Canada reports June traffic
Record system passenger load factor of 82.8%


MONTREAL, July 5 /CNW Telbec/ - Air Canada reported a load factor for the
mainline of 83.4 per cent in June 2007, matching last June's record.

The mainline carrier flew 1.1 per cent more revenue passenger miles
(RPMs) in June 2007 than in June 2006, according to preliminary traffic
figures. Capacity increased by 1.1 per cent, resulting in a load factor of
83.4 per cent, matching June 2006's record of 83.4 per cent.

Jazz, from which Air Canada purchases regional capacity, flew 13.1 per
cent more RPMs in June 2007 than in June 2006, according to preliminary
traffic figures. Capacity increased by 9.0 per cent, resulting in a load
factor of 76.6 per cent, compared to 73.8 per cent in June 2006; an increase
of 2.8 percentage points.

Year over year, system traffic on a consolidated basis for Air Canada and
Jazz, rose 2.0 per cent on a capacity increase of 1.8 per cent, resulting in a
load factor of 82.8 per cent; an increase of 0.2 percentage points, and a
record for the month of June.

"Air Canada together with Jazz achieved a record system load factor of
82.8 per cent for the month of June. Traffic growth remains strong
particularly in the domestic market where traffic was up 6.7 per cent,
outpacing capacity growth for an increase in load factor of 3.2 percentage
points on a combined basis with Jazz," said Montie Brewer, President and Chief
Executive Officer. "Our strong performance system wide reflects consumers'
preference for the new Air Canada as we continue to add new and refurbished
aircraft in the fleet offering the very best in industry leading amenities. In
addition, customers clearly are embracing Air Canada's new revenue model
featuring ą la carte pricing and multi-trip subscription flight passes. I am
proud that Air Canada employees once again achieved customer service
objectives for the month and I thank them for their on-going work in earning
the loyalty of our customers."

NOTE: Beginning in May 2007, Air Canada has adjusted the way it reports
its monthly traffic results. Tier 3 flying is now included in mainline results
along with Jetz. Charter flying is apportioned among the respective market
segments. The June 2006 and year-to-date traffic numbers have been adjusted to
reflect these changes for year-over-year comparisons.

WestJet CEO to step down, remain as exec. chairman
By Jeffrey Jones
Tue Jul 24, 2:43 PM ET

CALGARY, Alberta (Reuters) - Clive Beddoe, the blunt-spoken entrepreneur who founded WestJet Airlines Ltd. 11 years ago and built it into Canada's No. 2 carrier, is handing the chief executive post to President Sean Durfy and will step back as executive chairman, WestJet said on Tuesday.

Beddoe, 61, said he plans to keep exerting his influence over his company's strategy, but daily operations will be Durfy's responsibility. The handover is effective September 4.

"(Durfy has) done a heck of a job, and the team he's got around him that we collectively put together has done a phenomenal job with the company and the results that we've achieved, so it's time," Beddoe said in an interview.

"One only has so much in the way of creative juices for a given industry and I think it's a time where I feel my creative juices are running dry."

His role in the past eight months has been largely as mentor, he said. In that time, WestJet has generated positive results as it expanded and Canada's economy stayed strong.

WestJet shares were off 14 Canadian cents at C$16.30 on the Toronto Stock Exchange. They have climbed 9 percent this year.

The succession began last September, when Durfy, 41, was promoted to president. He gradually became WestJet's public face, delivering the corporate spiel at investor conferences and presiding over conference calls.

WestJet's trajectory in the airline industry is well-known -- founded on the Southwest Airlines no-frills model in 1996 with three aging Boeing 737s flying to five Western Canadian destinations.

The company recently completed a renewal of its fleet, which now consists of 66 new-generation 737s, with a network comprising 64 destinations in 12 countries, it said.

It has also moved away from the strict no-frills model while competing with the country's dominant carrier, Air Canada, by offering leather seats and satellite television.

WestJet has added more Western Hemisphere destinations outside Canada and the United States, such as the Caribbean and Mexico, an initiative Durfy has championed, independent airline consultant Rick Erickson said.

"Clive was always keen on the United States, certainly sunspot destinations within the U.S.," Erickson said. "My sense is that Durfy is the guy who was stickhandling the international aspirations of the airline."

Beddoe has long been known for candid assessments of the industry, his competitors and their tactics to wrest market share. Upstarts such as Jetsgo and CanJet tried undercutting WestJet and Air Canada on fares but failed when prices got too low and costs jumped.

Canada's airline industry cannot support a third large player now, he said. WestJet's first three planes were far less fuel-efficient than its new fleet, but low oil prices at the time made the formula work, he said.

"You couldn't bring those old airplanes out of the desert today with $70 (a barrel) fuel, particularly because the maintenance costs now are so much higher," he said.

Beddoe said a two-year legal dispute over allegations WestJet improperly gained access to Air Canada's proprietary flight information did not force him to change his tone.

"I don't think so. Not in the slightest. One can't be quite so vocal during those times," he said.

WestJet settled the suit last year, agreeing to pay the legal costs and donate C$10 million to children's charities.

He said he did not know how long he will stay on as WestJet's executive chairman.

I would have thought Southwest Airlines but most any airline in the world can beat the U.S. Airlines in terms of service. Congratulations to Air Canada.

Service isn't so great by international standards but I don't expect much from flying in North America these days anyway. They are relatively better compared to what US carriers are doing these days. But there are a lot of things that they need to work on such as replacing an aging fleet, adding PTV's, and improving meal service for the really long transcontinental flights (ie. YYZ-YVR).

I'd have to agree. People love to complain about Air Canada, but they shut up big time when they experience what people in some other countries deal with. Air Canada gets so many things right, but one wrong move and they are blacklisted for life. Ridiculous! My vote would go to Porter Airlines, but they aren't big enough to qualify for this ranking.
