Air Canada Orders Boeing 777, 787 Craft

AP - ACE Aviation Holdings Inc., the parent company of Air Canada, said Monday it plans to purchase 18 Boeing 777 aircraft and 14 Boeing 787 Dreamliners as part of a wide-body fleet renewal plan. Terms were not announced.

Montreal-based Air Canada made a firm order for the 32 jets, and also has the option to purchase 18 additional 777s and 46 more Dreamliners from Boeing Co.

Air Canada's 777 deliveries are scheduled to begin next year with the arrival of three 777-300ERs in 2006. The carrier's first 777-300ERs will operate its Vancouver-Tokyo service. Air Canada's first 787 is scheduled for delivery in 2010.

Robert Milton, chairman, president and CEO of ACE Aviation Holdings, said, "We have estimated the fuel burn and maintenance cost savings alone on the 787 to be about 30 percent versus the 767s they will replace. Particularly important in the current high fuel price environment is that the savings on these two line items alone will be more than twice the incremental ownership costs in acquiring these aircraft."

The airline said it is planning to dispose of more than 60 wide-bodies over the next 10 years, with the age of the Boeing 767s to be replaced averaging about 22 years.

Air Canada to spin off Aeroplan, Milton confirms
Nicolas Van Praet, with files from Chris Sorensen
19 April 2005
National Post

MONTREAL - Air Canada's holding company has fast-tracked the sale of its Aeroplan LP customer loyalty program and will bring it to market shortly in what is expected to be the first of several spinoffs of Air Canada businesses.

Robert Milton, chief executive of ACE Aviation Holdings Inc., said yesterday for the first time what the Canadian and U.S. investment communities have believed for months: that the company would spin off Aeroplan, in whole or in part, in an offering on public markets.

Mr. Milton did not close the door to selling part of Aeroplan to a private buyer. But he said buyout firm Onex Corp. is not in the picture as a potential purchaser. Onex had a deal with Air Canada to buy a 35% stake in Aeroplan for $245-million before that fell apart with the airline's bankruptcy protection filing. The company said recently that it was still interested in the unit. But Mr. Milton said the price could now be too rich for Onex. "Valuations have moved up appreciably, clearly we think it [Aeroplan] is in a position to go to the public markets," Mr. Milton said after a speech to a business audience in Montreal. "We remain on a fast track with the view that there is validity to the argument that it should be monetized, at least in part," he said. "It all seems to be coming together."

Mr. Milton offered no specific timing for the sale. He said the company is working on legal and regulatory issues to ready its public debut.

Analysts have pegged the unit's worth in the range of $1.3-billion to $1.9-billion and say Air Canada is likely preparing an income trust structure for Aeroplan.

Mr. Milton said when ACE officials met with investors and bankers in New York, Boston, Toronto and Montreal recently to work on raising $792-million in new equity, there was significant interest in an Aeroplan offer.

But one industry insider threw a wrench into that hype yesterday. He said buying into an income trust means buying cash flow forever, something that could be problematic given that Aeroplan's fortunes are at least partly tied to the fortunes of Air Canada. And while passenger traffic is rebounding now, that could change with an unforeseen event. In addition, the airline is also under threat from low-cost carriers on many routes.

"What if I am concerned about is the viability of those cash flows five to 10 years from now," the source said.

"The reality is the sophisticated investor has to think about that -- is this airline, in its current form, viable? Aeroplan survived this (last) restructuring. The next restructuring may not be as attractive."

One Bay Street analyst, who did not want his name used, said the divestiture of Aeroplan is the first step toward spinning off several of ACE's subsidiaries.

"It was always obvious that Aeroplan was going to be the first to go," the analyst said. Air Canada Technical Service, its jet maintenance unit; Jazz, its regional airline; and Air Canada Vacations, its tour package business, are next in line.

The analyst added that, in addition to creating value for ACE shareholders, the move to spin off subsidiaries should improve the fortunes of each unit. That is particularly the case with Aeroplan, which has long since moved away from its roots as a frequent-flyer program.

To date, Aeroplan, with six million members, has signed deals with companies including electronics retailer Future Shop, Esso service stations and Bell Canada, and plans to sign on as many as a dozen by the end of 2005.

"It's the most attractive of the assets to investors," because it is the subsidiary that has carved out its own business to the greatest extent, said Karl Moore, a business professor at McGill University in Montreal.

ACE shares, which started trading at $20 following Air Canada's exit from bankruptcy protection in September, closed down 75 cents at $35.25 yesterday.

Jets contract gives Boeing edge on Airbus
While Dreamliner is getting rave reviews, competitor's A350 is proving a tough sell

BERTRAND MAROTTE
26 April 2005
The Globe and Mail

The decision by Air Canada's parent company to order 32 new wide-body jets from Boeing Co. is a major boost to the venerable U.S. airplane manufacturer in its hard-fought campaign to wrest back leadership of the global commercial aircraft industry from rival Airbus SAS.

Boeing's sleek new fuel-efficient, long-range 787 has been garnering rave reviews, particularly from European airlines, while Airbus's A350 — an upgraded version of its 250-seat A330 — is proving so far to be a difficult sell.

So far, Boeing has booked 217 firm orders for the 787 — dubbed the Dreamliner — while the A350 is hoping to have 50 orders announced by the time the Paris air show rolls around this summer.

The ACE Aviation Holdings Inc. order for Air Canada — for 18 Boeing 777s and 14 787s — is a significant vote of confidence for the 787 from a North American carrier.

“Boeing appears to be making a major technological jump over Airbus,” said Robert Fay, a financial analyst with Canaccord Capital Corp.

A big advantage of the Boeing 787 is that it is not a derivative, unlike Airbus's A350, which is an upgraded version of its A330 plane.

Adding to the pressure on Airbus are reports that Boeing is working on a new single-aisle jet that would be based on the advanced technology of its new 787, set to enter service in 2008 and the industry's first commercial jetliner with a composite wing and fuselage. The new aircraft would replace the Boeing 737.

Chicago-based Boeing has also gone on the offensive on the trade front with the U.S. government, calling on the World Trade Organization to put a stop to subsidies for the development of Airbus aircraft.

“Boeing is thinking of moving things up by replacing the 737 and that could throw Airbus off balance in its strategy,” Mr. Fay said.

Airbus's marquee plane is its super-jumbo A380, which can carry as many as 800 passengers and is slated for service starting next year. It has garnered about 130 orders so far.

After clinching the Air Canada order, there is talk that Boeing is poised to win over Northwest Airlines Corp. with a firm commitment to 18 Dreamliners.

The 787 is making a name for itself as one of the fastest-selling new passenger jets in commercial aviation history, even before it takes to the skies.

“The key here is that the 777 has been about the only aircraft in its class better than anything else Airbus had to offer. Airbus has been cleaning Boeing's clock. Now, the question is whether the [225-seat] 787 can do that in the segment just below the [350-plus seat] 777,” said Richard Aboulafia, an airline consultant with the Teal Group in Fairfax, Va..

Boeing has also been aggressive on pricing, observers say.

“There's a lot of gamesmanship going on, like on price,” said one analyst who did not want to be named.

Since 2001, Airbus has sold more planes every year than Boeing, but Boeing's new head of commercial aircraft sales, Scott Carson, has vowed to reverse the company's fortunes in 2005.

Last year, Airbus took 53 per cent of global airliner sales.

Air Canada to order Boeing 777s and 787 Dreamliners
25 April 2005


Air Canada is planning a wide-body fleet renewal plan that includes up to 36 Boeing 777s and up to 60 Boeing 787 Dreamliners. Air Canada will use the airplanes to modernize its existing fleet and improve operating efficiencies.

The wide-body renewal plan includes firm orders for 18 Boeing 777s, plus purchase rights for 18 more, in a yet-to-be-determined mix of the 777 family's newest models: the 777-300ER, the 777-200LR Worldliner, and the newly announced 777 Freighter. Air Canada's 777 deliveries are scheduled to begin next year with the arrival of three 777- 300ERs in 2006. The carrier's first 777-300ERs will operate its Vancouver- Tokyo service.

The renewal plan also includes firm orders for 14 new Boeing 787 Dreamliners, plus options and purchase rights for an additional 46 airplanes. Air Canada's first 787 is scheduled for delivery in 2010.

"Our decision to modernize our fleet with the 777 and 787 Dreamliner will move Air Canada into a clear leadership position among North American international carriers with the world's two newest and most efficient twin- engine, long-haul airplanes," said Robert Milton, Chairman, President and CEO of ACE Aviation Holdings, the parent company of Air Canada. "No other carrier in North America is in a position to order the latest and most capable variants of the 777, the 200LR, and the 300ER and also the 787. The superior customer comfort and operating economics of these aircraft will put us in the company of the leading European, Middle East and Asia Pacific carriers.

"Our analysis of these aircraft pointed to overwhelmingly attractive economics. We have estimated the fuel burn and maintenance cost savings alone on the 787 to be approximately 30 per cent versus the 767s they will replace. Particularly important in the current high fuel price environment is that the savings on these two line items alone will be more than twice the incremental ownership costs in acquiring these aircraft. Our only disappointment is that Boeing will not be able to deliver us our first 787 aircraft until 2010.

"The agreement with Boeing is very attractive financially as the operating cost of the 777 and 787 will be significantly less than our current airplanes they will replace, the acquisition costs will be spread over several years, and the asset values of the aircraft we will replace and sell are significant. As we are planning to dispose of more than 60 wide-bodies over the next decade, the net cash outlay for acquisition of these new aircraft is expected to be greatly reduced. The average age of the Boeing 767s to be replaced will be approximately 22 years."

The order is subject to several conditions including final documentation. The companies expect to finalize the agreement by mid-year.

Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO, Alan Mulally, noted the significance of the timing of the Air Canada order. "The timing of Air Canada's decision is critical for locking in rapidly disappearing early delivery positions for the 787, which is essentially sold out through 2010," said Mulally. "Air Canada also has secured three of the very few remaining near-term delivery slots for the 777."

The 777 and 787 are uniquely suited to meet Air Canada's current route structure and growth plans, which include long-range, non-stop routes for both passengers and cargo, with an increasing emphasis on growing markets in Latin America and China. Operating in the same fleet, the 777 and 787 will allow Air Canada to tailor capacity to seasonal demand with two aircraft types that fly the same speed and range yet offer different seating capacities.

"The new aircraft improves Air Canada's ability to manage its capacity more in line with the dynamic marketplace by giving it a constant stream of efficient aircraft guaranteeing its ability to take advantage of growth opportunities, such as China, or through retirement of older aircraft, shrink its capacity while improving the mix of extremely fuel efficient aircraft," said Montie Brewer, President and CEO of Air Canada.

The delivery of three 777s in 2006 will allow Air Canada to implement its recently announced expansion of services to China using existing wide-body aircraft. Air Canada will introduce daily Toronto-Shanghai non-stop service in summer 2006 and will increase flights to daily service between Toronto and Beijing. A daily Vancouver-Guangzhou non-stop service is planned to begin summer 2007. From its main Toronto hub, Air Canada also expects to start Toronto- Guangzhou cargo service in 2007 and plans to eventually add Tianjin to its freight operations. The expansion of passenger and freight services to China has been made possible by the new bilateral air agreement between Canada and China.

From its main hub in Toronto, Air Canada currently operates non-stop flights to Hong Kong, Tokyo, Seoul and Delhi. From its Asia Pacific gateway in Vancouver, Canada's flag carrier serves Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya and Seoul with daily non-stop flights.

Incentives from P.E.I. spark airline dogfight
Air Canada threat to drop service over pact with WestJet

Chris Sorensen
27 April 2005
National Post

Air Canada is threatening to stop flying to Prince Edward Island after the province coaxed summer service from rival WestJet Airlines Ltd. by promising to guarantee ticket sales and provide free advertising.

In a terse letter to P.E.I. Premier Patrick Binns, the country's largest carrier said financial incentives offered to WestJet, totalling nearly $500,000, amount to a government subsidy of a competing airline, and that Air Canada was cancelling plans to add extra service to Charlottetown this summer.

As well, Lyse Charette, Air Canada's senior director of corporate affairs, said in the letter the airline is now considering a "review" of its regular service to the island province, which had been part of the carrier's network "for many years."

"Your government's subsidies of close to one-half million dollars significantly distort the marketplace and now force Air Canada to review the continuance of our services ... beyond the 2005 peak summer season," Ms. Charette wrote.

An Air Canada spokeswoman declined to comment on the situation.

The Province of P.E.I., in the midst of a push to stimulate tourism to the province of 138,000, said last week that WestJet would begin flying seasonally between Toronto and Charlottetown in June, and that it would provide a "partial revenue guarantee" to WestJet to a maximum of $300,000.

In addition, the province pledged to provide "marketing support to create awareness of the new service," according to a news release dated April 20. The campaign is to include full-page advertising in WestJet's in-flight magazine and advertising on travel Web sites in Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary and Vancouver. Money will also be spent on a four-week newspaper advertising campaign in Toronto and Vancouver, the release said.

"These and other activities for tourism marketing support of the new flight have been budgeted at $175,000," said Philip Brown, the province's Minister of Tourism, in the statement. "Our department will be working closely with WestJet to ensure Canadians are strongly encouraged to visit P.E.I. this summer season."

Sean Durfy, WestJet's executive vice-president of marketing and sales, said the agreements were "standard industry practice," particularly when it comes to serving smaller airports with limited markets.

"There was the need for the province [of PEI] and the airport authority to support us and make it economically viable," Mr. Durfy said.

"These are things that airports do to get companies like WestJet to come in."

Air Canada took a shot at WestJet in the letter to Premier Binns by questioning WestJet's commitment to the province.

Ms. Charette noted that Air Canada had historically flown to P.E.I. year-round -- not just during the most profitable summer months. She added that revenue generated during the summer is used to make up the marginal performance of the routes during the remainder of the year.

A spokesperson for Tourism P.E.I. could not be reached yesterday.

Debtholders await Air Canada payment
Barry Critchley
28 April 2005
National Post

A few more weeks. That's the word from Ernst & Young, the court-appointed monitor for Air Canada, as to the length of time that debtholders of the former bankrupt airline will have to wait before they receive their final payment. "There will be a second distribution," said a source familiar with the process. "And we are hoping to have that in the next two or three weeks. At that time the remaining shares or cash will be sent out."

And that's good news for investors who have wondered about the process that started last October. And given the way that shares in ACE Aviation Holdings Inc., the holding company for Air Canada, have traded, some investors are sitting on a bit of a gold mine.

As part of Air Canada's emergence from bankruptcy, debtholders were required to submit their claims to Ernst & Young. At that time, the debtholders were also offered the opportunity to participate in a rights offering. That offering gave the holders the right to buy stock at $20 a share. Would-be-investors had to fill out a subscription agreement and send in a cheque.

A few weeks later investors received the first instalment of shares. The number of shares received initially was in line with what investors were told at the time they filled out the subscription agreement. Investors were also told the maximum number of shares they would receive. Since then there's been nothing.

Why the delay? It seems not all the claims have been settled. "We don't know the value of the pool of claims because not all the claims have been settled," added a source. Indeed, the process was complicated because the number of shares an individual debtholder received -- and the number of rights they received -- was related to the amount of the claims submitted by that group of debtholders.

Air Canada has sought subsidies in past, P.E.I. premier alleges WestJet deal not a first
Nicholas Van Praet
28 April 2005
National Post

MONTREAL - Prince Edward Island Premier Pat Binns, under fire for his government's decision to woo WestJet Airlines Ltd. with nearly half a million dollars in incentives in exchange for summer service, says Air Canada has asked for similar support in the past and has not been averse to receiving subsidies.

Air Canada said it would cancel its extra service to P.E.I. this summer and is threatening to pull out of the province altogether over the WestJet deal. It says the subsidy creates an unlevel playing field.

Some airline industry players in Quebec said yesterday they found Air Canada's clamouring for a level playing field ironic because a special deal the carrier struck with the government of Quebec props up its near-monopoly in that province.

"There's no level playing field in Quebec," said John McKenna, president of a trade group representing Quebec carriers. "This carrier is getting millions to provide a service into a region and the others get nothing."

For his part, Mr. Binns told the P.E.I. legislature that he found Air Canada's outrage surprising. The premier said Air Canada accepted a revenue guarantee of $250,000 several years ago when it began offering direct flights between Charlottetown and Montreal. He said his government made the offer to WestJet because existing summer service to the province was insufficient.

"Given the fact that they were the first carrier to ask [us] to be supported, it's surprising that they would take exception to support being given to someone else," Mr. Binns said Tuesday. The premier was not available yesterday.

In a terse letter sent to Mr. Binns on April 21 and reported in the Financial Post yesterday, Air Canada's director of corporate affairs said the nearly $500,000 worth of guaranteed ticket sales and free advertising P.E.I. is offering WestJet amounts to a government subsidy of a competing airline. The letter said Air Canada is now considering a "review" of its regular service to the island. Air Canada is the only airline that offers year-round service to P.E.I.

Air Canada spokeswoman Isabelle Arthur said yesterday the airline has been approached in the past and has struck deals with small communities across Canada in cases where the airline couldn't justify service under normal conditions and where its exit would have left the town with limited or no air service. "This can in no way be compared with the Charlottetown situation," she said.

I couldn't find the Toronto Star article regarding this, but I think it's intriguing, though I'm not sure how it'd work out

Air Canada has AmWest, US Airways merger ties


Dawn Gilbertson
The Arizona Republic
Apr. 30, 2005 12:00 AM
Another airline has been linked to a possible America West merger with US Airways.

The latest speculation focuses on Air Canada. The Toronto Star this week quoted a "Wall Street source" as saying the carrier may be in talks with both US Airways and America West Airlines in a deal that may see Air Canada take on international traffic while a combined US Airways-America West handles domestic U.S. traffic. It did not mention how such a deal would be structured.

Air Canada's chairman didn't rule out a possible merger for the airline on a conference call, the newspaper reported, but he seemed to be commenting on its role in industry consolidation in general. The discussion was a footnote in a story about the airline's $6 billion order for Boeing jets this week.

"Consolidation in the North American industry is inevitable," said Robert Milton, chairman of the airline's parent company. "To the extent Air Canada is or isn't part of that is yet to be determined."

The airlines are not strangers to each other.

Air Canada and US Airways are both members of the same airline alliance, the Star Alliance, a network of airlines that feed passengers to each other globally. They also have both used Seabury Group for investment banking.

On the America West side there's a Texas Pacific Group connection. The private equity firm brought America West out of bankruptcy a decade ago and, together with Air Canada, invested in Continental Airlines to bring it out of bankruptcy in 1993.

TPG still owns a controlling interest in America West and is seen as a key player in any merger. The extent of its role is unclear.

Rick Schifter, managing partner of TPG, wouldn't comment at an airline conference in Phoenix this week. But his overall comments on industry consolidation seemed to suggest that the airline is lukewarm on any further investments at this point.

He said the industry is "still sucking wind" because the success of low-cost carriers have brought about dramatic change in the rest of the industry.

"That gives us some pause as we look at the industry today," he said.

He also said the firm, a legendary bargain hunter, doesn't see a lot of steals out there because there is so much capital chasing few deals. That drives prices up.

He said they continue to keep an eye on the industry, "but we're fairly cautious at this stage."

Air Canada buying $6 billion worth of Boeing 777s and 787s

NEW YORK -- Consumer confidence declined in April for the third consecutive month, signaling Americans' concerns that economic growth is leveling off. But one area of the economy is still white hot: the government said sales of new homes shot up 12.2 percent last month to the highest level in history.

NEW YORK -- American Express Co., the consumer finance and travel company, reported a 19 percent increase in earnings for the first quarter, driven by strong growth in its card business.

NEW YORK -- A federal judge gave preliminary approval Tuesday to a deal under which auditor Arthur Andersen LLP will pay $65 million to settle allegations it failed to protect investors from WorldCom's historic accounting fraud.

NEW YORK -- Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc. reported a smaller first-quarter loss than a year ago, but the company struggled with a 13 percent revenue drop, primarily from the absence of its daily syndicated TV show while its namesake founder was in prison.

ADVERTISEMENT

WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that people who cheat foreign governments of tax revenue can be prosecuted under U.S. law for wire fraud.

In a 5-4 decision, the court upheld the fraud convictions for three men accused of sneaking thousands of cases of whisky, vodka and rum into Canada from the United States and avoiding millions of dollars in Canadian taxes.

Union officer decries more open skies
Toronto Star
3 May 2005

Expanding the "open skies" agreement between Canada and the United States, a move championed by Air Canada, would result in smaller Canadian communities losing service and could help propel other Canadian airlines into insolvency, an official with Air Canada's largest union says.

In a presentation yesterday before the House of Commons standing committee on transportation, Paul Lefebvre, president of a local in the International Association of Machinists, argued Canada should not be so quick on freer trade in the airline industry.

"We don't believe that our industry is in any shape to benefit from further liberalization at this time," he said.

Lefebvre said further liberalizing the open skies agreement with the U.S. might lead some Canadian carriers to drop service to smaller communities, particularly in the Maritimes and Prairies, as they move to defend more lucrative large markets.

Canadian carriers might ultimately face the prospect of bankruptcy from the added competition because the U.S. market is already deregulated, he added.

Bilingualism a must for airline
03 May 2005
National Post

The federal government isn't budging on a commitment to hold Air Canada to its official languages obligations, despite protests from the airline that the requirements put it at a competitive disadvantage. Jean Lapierre, the Transport Minister, said yesterday Ottawa will amend legislation to ensure Air Canada's new corporate structure, devised during its recent bankruptcy protection, continues to meet language requirements that have been law since the airline was privatized in the late 1980s. Other Canadian air carriers, including rival WestJet Airlines Ltd., do not have the same obligations. In addition to providing services in both official languages, the amended legislation will require the airline's parent, ACE Aviation Holdings Inc., to maintain its head office in Montreal. It will also place official languages requirements on new subsidiaries.

While Air Canada had promised to continue providing services in both French and English, the carrier had nevertheless asked Ottawa for a "level playing field" that did not see Air Canada targeted with specific legislation.

Spying led to airport switch, court told
WestJet moved hub to Toronto after stealing Air Canada data, filing alleges

3 May 2005
The Globe and Mail

WestJet Airlines Ltd. shifted its eastern hub to Toronto from Hamilton after stealing confidential data from Air Canada in an elaborate spying scheme, according to new court documents that show what forensic auditors uncovered on a WestJet co-founder's hard drive.

Air Canada, in the latest instalment in the corporate espionage case that has gripped the country's airline industry, filed new exhibits in support of its $220-million lawsuit against WestJet. Since the lawsuit was launched nearly 13 months ago, Calgary-based WestJet has repeatedly denied wrongdoing.

Last fall, Montreal-based Air Canada and a unit received court approval to hire H+A Computer Forensics Inc. to seize and analyze seven WestJet computers, including the hard drive belonging to Mark Hill, a co-founder and former vice-president of strategic planning who resigned from the airline last July.

“The defendants used the plaintiffs' confidential information in order to assist them in planning WestJet's change of its eastern base from Hamilton to Toronto,” said an affidavit signed by Benjamin Smith, Air Canada vice-president of planning.

Amid much fanfare, WestJet announced in January, 2004, that it would shift its eastern hub to Toronto's Pearson International Airport from Hamilton's Munro International Airport — which it did on April 18, 2004, entering the lucrative Toronto-Montreal-Ottawa triangle.

Mr. Smith said Mr. Hill stored “flight comparison reports” on his hard drive, compiling “a detailed comparison of WestJet flights at specific times between Montreal-Hamilton and Air Canada's flights at specific times on its Montreal-Toronto route.”

Mr. Smith also said Mr. Hill gathered data on WestJet's Ottawa-Hamilton route compared with Air Canada's Ottawa-Toronto service.

Spreadsheets found on Mr. Hill's hard drive, entered as Exhibit C attached to Mr. Smith's affidavit, show detailed information on Air Canada's flights, including their so-called load factor — the proportion of available seats filled.

The spreadsheets from November, 2003, use airport codes for Toronto (YYZ), Hamilton (YHM), Montreal (YUL) and Ottawa (YOW), and line by line, show which Air Canada flights were most popular and which didn't perform so well. For instance, Air Canada Flight 415 at 2 p.m. on Wednesdays in November, 2003, from Montreal to Toronto had 96.9 per cent of the available seats filled, compared with a load factor of 61.5 per cent on Air Canada Flight 401 at 7 a.m. on the same route, also on Wednesdays. Mr. Hill's reports contain details on individual flights, such as Air Canada's average seat capacity and load factors Monday through Sunday.

Air Canada launched its lawsuit against WestJet on April 6, 2004, when it named Mr. Hill as a co-defendant and alleged that he was the mastermind behind WestJet's snooping into Air Canada's special reservations website.

WestJet spokeswoman Gillian Bentley declined comment yesterday, saying the case is still before the Ontario Superior Court, but the carrier has said that Air Canada's internal website wasn't confidential, and flight information could be obtained by counting passengers boarding planes.

Previous court exhibits, introduced last year, included shredded documents retrieved from Mr. Hill's trash outside his home in the Victoria suburb of Oak Bay by private investigators hired by Air Canada.

Air Canada, which emerged from 18 months of bankruptcy protection last September, alleges that WestJet gained an unfair competitive advantage by hacking into the special website for Air Canada employees. None of the allegations has been proved in court.

Mr. Smith's affidavit accuses WestJet of “identifying and targeting the plaintiffs' most profitable flights and times and adjusting WestJet's schedule accordingly, planning WestJet's expansion into new routes and optimizing WestJet's revenue on specific routes.”

In another document found on Mr. Hill's hard drive, he “seems to provide instructions that WestJet should reallocate aircraft on specific routes because Air Canada had load factors above 75 per cent on these routes from mid-March through mid-April, 2003,” Mr. Smith said.

Those popular routes included: Vancouver-Montreal, Winnipeg-Montreal, Victoria-Toronto, Vancouver-Ottawa, Calgary-Montreal and Calgary-Victoria.

A third document found on Mr. Hill's computer compares WestJet's load factors with Air Canada's in the second quarter of 2003.

Mr. Smith alleges in his affidavit that WestJet's planning, bolstered by obtaining confidential Air Canada data, extended into the Atlantic, with WestJet carrying out Mr. Hill's recommendations to add afternoon Montreal-Halifax flights and Halifax-Montreal night service in September, 2003.

Two other WestJet co-founders — chief executive officer Clive Beddoe and executive vice-president of guest service Donald Bell — are also among the co-defendants.

Air Canada reports thirteenth consecutive month of record load factors for April

Domestic passenger load factor at 82.0% - highest ever for April
System passenger load factor at 80.5% - highest ever for April


MONTREAL, May 5 /CNW Telbec/ - Air Canada reported a system load factor of 80.5 percent in April 2005, the highest ever for April. The mainline carrier flew 4.7 percent more revenue passenger miles (RPMs) in April 2005 than in April 2004, according to preliminary traffic figures. Overall, capacity increased by 1.1 percent, resulting in a load factor of 80.5 percent, compared to 77.7 percent in April 2004; an increase of 2.8 percentage points. In the domestic market, capacity decreased by 1.7 percent and traffic increased by 4.7 percent resulting in a domestic load factor of 82.0 percent - a 5.0 percentage point increase year over year.

Jazz, Air Canada's regional airline subsidiary, flew 17.0 percent more revenue passenger miles in April 2005 than in April 2004, according to preliminary traffic figures. Capacity increased by 1.4 percent, resulting in a load factor of 70.5 percent, compared to 61.1 per cent in April 2004; an increase of 9.4 percentage points.

Domestic traffic, on a combined basis for Air Canada and its regional carrier, Jazz, rose 7.2 percent.

"Our performance in April marked the beginning of a second year of consecutive record load factors with a 2.8 percentage increase over last year's record for the month," said Montie Brewer, President and Chief Executive Officer. "This ongoing strong performance reflects a definite trend towards increasing customer preference for Air Canada over and above the market's recovery. Air Canada's employees are winning over more and more customers and I am incredibly proud that again in April they handled record volumes with exceptional operational performance. Air Canada has clearly become the airline of choice for Canadians with the lowest fares to the greatest number of destinations on an everyday basis."

Air Canada and WestJet report soaring business with April statistics

Canadian Press
Thursday, May 05, 2005



MONTREAL (CP) - Air Canada and WestJet have both reported high-flying business for April, in the wake of discount competitor Jetsgo's collapse in March.

Montreal-based Air Canada reported Thursday a domestic passenger load of 82 per cent and a system passenger load of 80.5 per cent in April - the highest ever for the month, the airline (TSX:ACE) said. Meanwhile, Calgary-based WestJet Airlines' load factor for April rose to 68.8 per cent, compared with 65.5 per cent in April 2004.

Air Canada also flew 3.3 billion revenue passenger miles in April, a 4.7 per cent increase over April 2004, according to preliminary traffic figures.

WestJet said it posted a 35.1 per cent year-over-year increase in revenue passenger miles - 585.7 million in April 2005 from 433.7 million the year before.

"Our performance in April marked the beginning of a second year of consecutive record load factors with a 2.8 percentage increase over last year's record for the month," said Air Canada CEO Montie Brewer.

"This ongoing strong performance reflects a definite trend towards increasing customer preference for Air Canada over and above the market's recovery."

Clive Beddoe, CEO of WestJet (TSX:WJA), said he's pleased with the operating results.

"Because Good Friday came in March this year, our April 2005 load factor was not bolstered by the Easter long weekend as it was in 2004," he said. "This points to an especially strong performance this April on a year-over-year basis."

The sudden shutdown of cut-rate carrier Jetsgo on March 11 had an impact on the results for the two larger carriers, although neither company mentioned it in their statements.

ACE Aviation Holdings Inc. (TSX:ACE) is the holding company under which the reorganized Air Canada is held.

Smoke on Air Canada Hong Kong - Vancouver flight
Matthew Lee
9 May 2005
Hong Kong Standard

An Air Canada flight was forced to return to Hong Kong after cabin crew saw smoke coming out of a reading light.

The Airbus A343 bound for Vancouver, with 231 passengers and 16 crew members, returned to Hong Kong International Airport shortly after takeoff at 4.03pm Sunday.

An Airport Authority spokeswoman said the control tower was notified at 4.34pm by flight AC 008 about smoke detected on board and asked to return to the airport. ``The flight landed safely at 4.45pm... No one was injured,'' she said.

Fire trucks were standing by near the runway. Preliminary investigations revealed that a reading light inside the cabin had an electrical short-circuit and emitted smoke but did not catch fire.

Investigations continued last night.

Air Canada to cut staff on flights to Europe Union protests cuts
Rick Westhead
Toronto Star
11 May 2005

It may take longer in coming weeks for passengers to get a drink, pillow or a newspaper aboard some of Air Canada's lengthy overseas routes, says the union representing the airline's flight attendants. After paring nearly $2 billion worth of annual costs during its bankruptcy protection, the airline plans to have fewer flight attendants work overseas routes to Europe, a cost-cutting measure that an Air Canada union says will slow service and might even compromise passenger and employee safety.

According to a May 9 letter sent to Air Canada and circulated yesterday to the carrier's 6,700 flight attendants, Pamela Sachs, an official with the Canadian Union of Public Employees, objected to Air Canada's plans to cut by one the number of flight attendants who work on trans-Atlantic flights.

Effective June 1, Air Canada plans to have 10 flight attendants work aboard its Airbus 330 planes, down from the current 11. On routes using Airbus 340 planes, the carrier wants to have nine flight attendants instead of 10, Sachs wrote.

"Everyone knows that if we are required to act as safety professionals on a flight, numbers will make a difference," Sachs wrote in the letter to Susan Welscheid, an Air Canada official. "Furthermore," she wrote, "reducing crew complement will also threaten the health and safety of our members who would be required to do more with less. You have failed to respect the law when developing and implementing new work procedures. And you dangle the prospect of profits ahead of the health and safety of our members."

An Air Canada spokesperson said that even after the airline reduced the number of flight attendants on European-bound flights, it would still exceed Transport Canada's required minimum staffing levels. A spokesperson for the federal regulator couldn't be reached.

In a May 5 letter to the union obtained by the Toronto Star, Welscheid said Air Canada would consider in coming months expanding the cost-cutting move to include other international routes, such as flights to Central and South America and Asia.

"This will ensure our success in remaining competitive within our industry," Welscheid wrote, adding that rising fuel costs were among reasons for the change. "It is our commitment to ensure that safety and customer service on board will not be compromised by these changes."

Air Canada has also hired an unnamed "time and motion expert" from the University of Toronto to "explore other services to improve the service," she wrote. Other moves Air Canada said will improve service include a plan to have two hospitality-class flight attendants, after meals are served, moving to the executive class cabin "to ensure optimal customer service for our premium passengers," Welscheid's letter says. As of July 1, meals in executive class will also be served on a tray.

A move to improve service in hospitality class includes combining bar and meal service, allowing passengers to order beer and wine at the same time they receive their food.

In a bid to pare costs to exit bankruptcy, Air Canada reached an agreement with CUPE for flight attendants to surrender $136 million worth of wage and benefits cuts. Air Canada "cannot change these crew complements with more than four years left in the negotiated collective agreement that was based on this court-approved business plan without consequence," Sachs wrote.

Air Canada's Airbus 330s, which seat 42 executive and 232 hospitality-class passengers, typically fly to destinations including London, Frankfurt and Paris. The 340-series jets seat 42 executive and 225 hospitality-class passengers, and primarily fly to Japan, China and other Asia locations. The A340 planes occasionally fly to European cities, said an airline spokesperson.

Air Canada starts non-stop Toronto-Beijing service
13 May 2005
The Globe and Mail

Air Canada has announced that its first non-stop flights from Toronto to Beijing will begin June 3.

The flights will be the first to directly connect China's mainland with points in Canada as far east as Ontario, the Xinhua news agency reports.

Air Canada will offer three flights a week in June, increasing to four per week in July.

The airline plans to step up its non-stop passenger service between Toronto and Beijing to daily flights by 2006.

Daily non-stop passenger services between Toronto and Shanghai are planned to run from 2006, and between Vancouver and Guangzhou from 2007.

ACE Aviation Sees Outlook Improving As Year Unfolds
By Monica Gutschi
Of DOW JONES NEWSWIRES
13 May 2005

TORONTO (Dow Jones)--Air Canada saw a "dramatic" improvement in operating results immediately following the demise of discount rival Jetsgo last March, with yields, fares and passenger traffic all moving higher.

"I'm pleasantly surprised by what's happening," said Robert Milton, chief executive of Air Canada's parent ACE Aviation Holdings Ltd. (ACE.B.T), adding that Canada's dominant airline "picked up" more of the traffic that might have used Jetsgo than he had anticipated.

That, and better leverage from the company's cost-cutting program, should translate into progressively better results as the year unfolds, Milton said on a conference call.

"We saw some significant increases in yields immediately after the Jetsgo failure," he said. "We've seen now a continuation and acceleration of yield performance going forward."

He said Air Canada managed to produce strong first-quarter results despite "brutal" fuel prices and a domestic fare war in the weeks leading up to Montreal-based Jetsgo's demise. "We are very encouraged with the results from the quarter," Milton said.

ACE Aviation reported a loss of C$77 million or 87 Canadian cents a share, well down from the loss of C$304 million or C$2.53 reported last year. The 2004 numbers included C$132 million in reorganization and restructuring charges.

Its operating loss was C$10 million, down from C$135 million before charges a year earlier.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and aircraft rent, or EBITDAR, a non-GAAP measure used in the airline industry, totalled C$200 million, up from C$144 million.

Revenue increased 2.6% to C$2.18 billion from C$2.12 billion.

The airline also reported a record load factor for the first quarter of 78%, up significantly from 72.9% a year earlier as passenger traffic rose 5% and overall capacity was cut 2%. Load factor is the percentage of available seats filled.

However, the intense price wars caused yields, or per-seat revenue, to fall 3% in the quarter even as unit costs declined 2%. Excluding the impact of fuel, which rose by 24% in the quarter, unit costs fell by 6% from a year earlier. Jetsgo, which abruptly ceased operating March 11, had been known for its aggressive pricing and rapid expansion across the country.

Calgary-based WestJet Airlines Ltd. (WJA.T) reported a loss of C$9.6 million or 8 Canadian cents in the quarter, mostly due to to weak yields arising from the price wars. WestJet has said average ticket prices rose 15-20% immediately following Jetsgo's filing for bankruptcy protection.

Fares have also gone up at Air Canada but officials refused to say Friday by how much. Air Canada President Montie Brewer would only say he was "happy" at the price increase.

"We are looking forward to a good summer," he said, adding that even with rising ticket prices, "we are still experiencing record load factors. We're not having problems finding passengers."

In fact, the airline will add five wide-body aircraft to its fleet by the summer to take advantage of growing international traffic.

International passenger traffic rose 9% in the first quarter, compared to a 4% increase in Canada. Traffic on transborder routes to the U.S. slipped 1% even as capacity in that region was cut 12% due to growing competition from U.S. carriers.

In Toronto Friday, ACE Aviation is down 3 Canadian cents to C$34.75 as they settled after an early surge following the release of the first-quarter results. The stock traded as high as C$36.50 earlier Friday.

Air Canada plane lands safely after reporting fire
Associated Press

Hong Kong — A Vancouver-bound Air Canada flight that reported an in-flight fire returned safely to Hong Kong's airport on Sunday about 40 minutes after takeoff, officials said.

The reported fire turned out to be a short-circuited cabin light that emitted smoke but didn't catch fire, and there were no injuries, Airport Authority Hong Kong spokeswoman Jo Ngai said.

She identified the flight as AC008 bound for Vancouver. She said the plane, an Airbus A343, was carrying 231 passengers and 16 crew members.
