    Probably already mentioned, but I don’t get the logic to our governments restrictions on flight. They ban all Canadian flights to the Caribbean & Mexico but allow flights to Europe, Asia & Africa.

    Also all American Airlines still allowed to fly to sun destinations from Canada to Mexico & the Caribbean.

    Am I missing something?

    You haven't missed anything, our decision makers are just idiots.

    I seriously question the mental capacity of the people making the calls. It’s completely fucked.

    Making a guess: because flights to other destinations are more expensive and that + $2,000 quarantine is enough deterrent? :shrug:

    I dont know about AA...

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    Depends on pre-existing conditions.

    When the farms have crops to pick, Mexican flights will be open again.

    This ban is all about getting rid of non-essential travel to non-essential destinations ahead of spring break.

    Yes, you can bypass most of it if you are willing to jump thru hoops and pay extra. They are betting many won't.

    I thought it's been pretty well established that no one in their right mind would run for public office, leaving only pea-brained knuckleheads to run our city/province/country.

    Iím in the airport right now(domestic terminal). The checkin area was dead, when you go to security you donít walk past any shops or anything they just funnel you right into the B terminal for westjet C terminal for air Canada. Canít walk between terminals at all. When you scan your phone initially at security they get you to stand in a specific place for the temp check which is a green laser beam at a distance of about 6 feet. I went through X-ray and something beeped. They used that bomb scanning thing to check my belt area and did not use the metal detector at all.

    In the gates area there are approx 5 gates open and about 20 people waiting at each gate. Lots of people sitting next to each other. No real attempt to force people to skip seats.

    There are red hand santizer stations everywhere.

    Most people appear to be traveling for business.

    Places to eat:

    Canadian bagel
    Jugo juice
    And the convenience store.

    No coffee places open. The main check in area had nothing open at all.

    When you check in you have to remove your mask and show your ID.

    Interesting tidbit:

    I didnít realize they were building overpasses for 19th street and Barlow trail (seems like a waste of $$$)

    The city had to get those two interchanges done before it could connect the tunnel to anything useful on the east side.

    https://calgaryherald.com/news/traff...-after-opening
    The east side remains undeveloped because of a strict deal the city agreed to with the Calgary Airport Authority that dictates the city must first commit to building two new interchanges (at 19th Street and at Barlow Trail) before Airport Trail can be extended east of 36th Street to connect to Metis Trail and, one day, Stoney Trail.

    I think those interchanges will be pretty useful. Those roads are busy every day, and not just with people flying to mexico, there's a lot of industrial traffic up there too. Now make them diverging diamond interchanges as well and I'm really happy . . . .
