    air canada/JAZZ

    although air canada does not fly to aruba,
    i felt this little blurb of interest to our community forum.

    AP) Air Canada's regional carrier, Jazz, is removing life vests from all of its planes to save weight and fuel.

    A Jazz spokeswoman says Canadian regulations allow airlines to use floatation devices instead of life vests as long as the planes remain within 50 miles of shore.

    Safety cards in the seat pockets of Jazz planes now direct passengers to use the seat cushions as floatation devices.

    Jazz is a transcontinental carrier that doesn't fly over the ocean. The planes do fly over the Great Lakes and along the Eastern seaboard. But the company says all of the flights are within 50 miles from shore and the number of its flights that fly over water is minimal.

    Air Canada Jazz flies smaller planes and generally do short haul flights. Air Canada flies Toronto- Aruba (two flights) on Saturdays. There are a few other carriers that fly from Toronto and Montreal to Aruba. Those flights are on Fridays and Sundays and are run through charter companies.

    My friends have booked Sky Service already for Xmas as their schedules come out in the summer. Check it out soon if you have your dates in mind.

    Too bad about Canjet, their inargural flight was last Xmas vacation Montreal-Aruba!
