Inside of the AC B773ER

Coach class as ten of us were on a trip. A good airplane, but food is hit and mis. It took about seven hours to get to Rome, so all in all I give them passing mark.

I am 5'10" and it was comfy inside.



Newish seats.

Year end numbers in for YYZ and, as expected, it cracked the 44 MM pax barrier. The trend also continues that in real number volume growth, YYZ grew by more than all other 'big 3' airports combined - not only overall, but in both the transborder and international passenger categories. For international, YYZ handles more than all other big 3 combined as well, by a solid 2 MM more passengers.

Sunday March 19th.

I came out to enjoy +9 sunny Sunday. Didn't bring my L lenses as I had to stop on the way, but I used my trusty phone.

Selling off Canada’s airport could result in sky-high prices
As it stands, Canadians get a better deal through publicly owned airports than if they would be controlled by private companies.
Toronto Star Excerpt
March 17, 2017

If the leaks are true, the upcoming federal budget will include an ill-advised move to sell off Canada’s airports, which would result in both travellers and governments paying a heavy price.

The potential sale of Canada’s airports is part of a larger trend of “asset recycling,” the politically popular term describing government sales of public assets to investors who then control prices and quality, often with little to no competition.

There is little rationale for taking airports out of public control. Financially, Canada can afford to maintain ownership: both the federal debt ratio and interest rates are near all-time lows.

As it stands, Canadians get a better deal through publicly owned airports than if they would be controlled by private companies.

Canada’s airports are not funded by the taxpayer. Funding comes from airport improvement fees directly on tickets, landing and other charges to the airlines (which are charged back to travellers), parking lot fees, and concession/retail rents. Travellers can’t avoid the first two, but they may be able to avoid the second two.

In fact, airports pay the federal government $305 million a year for land rental (as estimated by a recent C.D. Howe study) in addition to paying city property taxes.

The first thing to recognize about this plan is that the federal government can’t just sell off airports wholesale. In fact, airports aren’t actually controlled by the federal government — they are controlled by airport authorities with representatives from a variety of sources.

The Greater Toronto Airports Authority, which operates Pearson, has representatives from the federal government, the province, the City of Toronto and regions of York, Halton, Peel and Durham, in addition to reps from several boards of trade.

All of the above would have to agree to this sale, which seems pretty unlikely. Even if they did agree, they might want a piece of the action. The federal government does own the land under the airport, which it could sell to a private investor. But this seems like an even worse idea.

What is lost in all this is that airports, like Pearson, are natural monopolies. Whoever operates them has no real competition because it’s just too expensive to build several international airports in Toronto. It only makes sense to build one. As such, there is no market here, only market failure resulting in a monopoly, which is precisely when you want a non-profit in charge.

For-profit companies, on the other hand, love a good monopoly. When consumers have few convenient choices, prices can be far higher in order to “extract value” from the monopoly.

Does anyone know what that massive retail redevelopment will be in T1 domestic? Right when you come down the escalators, to the right, where that general book/magazine store called Watermark was, and around the corner all the way to where Jo Malone, MAC, and Victoria's Secret were.

Hopefully something pretty cool.

Really? I find it to be a huge improvement. I never liked the old colours, the new one is a huge improvement.
