  1. Air Canada

    I’m not a 737 fan but it really looks sharp in the new AC livery Its in Kelowna getting some work done at Kelowna FlightCraft. I saw it sitting there as we flew in yesterday but I was too slow getting my camera out - so this is the best thing could get when I drove down there today.
  2. In need of financial assistance.

    Again, not being judgemental - so please don't take this the wrong way - just trying to help. You're comments about giving up on the workforce would be the number one reason for me not to give you a penny - if you can't help yourself, don't expect handouts - and thats what you're asking for. I completely get your frustration, believe me I do - but my advice, and I hope it helps, I really do, is that use this as a personal boost to really pick yourself up and accomplish great things. Sometimes, one really has to get beat down to realize that they're the only ones who can change their life around. Don't let any past experiences weigh you down, use them as a ladder to start climbing. Don't let any personal challenges in your life kick you down - use them to kick back. Its not an easy road but trust me, the goal is worth it and you'll feel a million times better about yourself and when you do that, everything else such as finances falls into place all on its on.
  3. In need of financial assistance.

    Not to make light of your situation, but welcome to life. People giving you money won't help you, it'll just buy you a little time and a false sense of peace until you hit financial woes again. Finances are like a drain plug, once you unplug it, the whirlpool goes faster and faster and gets tighter and tighter. Just about everyone has been in your exact position and its a shitty feeling, I know it all too well. Your best bet may be to go to a financial institution, get them to consolidate your loans into one loan with a single structured payment and then, most importantly, sit yourself down and come up with some financial plan - figure out where your money is going and figure out how to reduce that - figure out where your income is coming from and try to increase that - work more hours, overtime, get a second job - the beauty of working more is you have less time to spend money so thats an added bonus. There's nothing wrong with asking for money, we've all done it at sometime - but the reality is that it won't solve anything.
  4. Las Vegas questions

    I"ve got Expedia, RBC Avion, WestJet Rewards, IHG and AC Altitude/Aeroplan. I try to "double dip" with most of the programs, such as getting points for my Avion card by booking a Holiday Inn room on Expedia, which gets you points for Expedia and then getting the IHG points for Holiday Inn. Hotels are usually easy, but some airlines won't give you points if you book third-party.
  5. Las Vegas questions

    Doesn't take much - you only have to book 15 nights a year with Expedia to hit Gold. Not really that many perks, but you can get some decent pricing here and there as well as a higher rate of Expedia Points that you can use towards free travel.
  6. Las Vegas questions

    No points - just member pricing with Expedia Gold
  7. Las Vegas questions

    Booked a room at The Tropicana for the first week of December - 3 nights for $4.11 taxes in My last trip there, I stayed at The Tuscany - I highly recommend it. Its a smaller property thats a block and a half off of The Strip, but located on E.Flamingo so its only a 10 minute walk to the heart of The Strip. Instead of it being one big high rise hotel, its compromised of a few smaller buildings with tropical walkways and gardens in between and a nice pool in the centre. The 24 hour in-house restaurant offers great food and very affordable prices (complete breakfasts for under $10) and the lounge offers free nightly entertainment. Speaking of pools, Mandalay Bay really does have the nicest pool in Vegas - big wave pool surrounded by palm trees and sand - absolutely stunning for a relaxing day.

    The Oil Sands operations have a very mixed and diverse fleet of yellow/white school bus frames. If the latest rumour comes into fruition, First will be needing quite a number more school bus frames in the Wood Buffalo region next year - hence my comment.
  10. First Student Canada

    My guess is they're Oil Sands bound

    And losing lawsuit after lawsuit as employees in the US stand up to them and demand being paid for the work they perform.

    Give me a -100 or -300 over the Q400 any day. I like the noise and vibration. Much better than the annoying high pitched buzz from the noise suppression systems on the Q400s.
  14. - BA used to have 2x daily B747 in the summer. - LH has used the B744 on and off. - KL used to use the MD11 daily. B743 and DC10 before that.
  15. Photography Equipment

    The best camera for you is the one that fits best in your hands and is placed in your hand and doesn't stay in the bag.
