Photo: Fly By Night

Forget what I wrote a couple of weeks ago about how Air Canada doesn't run a flight monopoly - in some cities, this actually is the case. Case in point: Fredericton International Airport in Fredericton, New Brunswick, where all regularly scheduled flights are run by Air Canada Express, connecting it to Toronto, Montreal, and Halifax. I was through there this weekend, arriving and departing in the deep darkness. Pictured here is C-FFJA, a CRJ200 regional jet that ran the 5:30 AM flight to Toronto Pearson, the airport's first flight of the day - and aside from a completely dark Dash 8 at the other end of the field, it was the sole and solitary aircraft there.

Been a while since I've boarded a plane without going by jetway.

  1. It's so different to walk to a plane outside and then climb into it. Last time for me would have been at least 5yrs ago for a WestJet flight from Hamilton.

    The controlled environment of the jetways try to fool you into thinking flying is nothing more than entering an elevator.
