The Air Canada Issue Has Nothing to Do With RIM

17 Comments

So two drunks were charged with mischief and had to be removed from an Air Canada flight from Toronto to Beijing. Why is it relevant that they’re RIM employees? Stories like this have been reported before, but the place of work for those charged is never disclosed because it’s simply not relevant. Did RIM as a company have anything to do with them being drunk? Of course not. Also, have you ever taken a flight from Toronto to Beijing? I dare you to fly for 13 hours without getting blackout drunk. It’s boring as hell.

Not really a tip but there’s an Air Canada ad in today’s Toronto Star with a big picture of the Torch asking you to hook up to the Air Canada App. Only problem is, at least on my Torch, is that the App isn’t available for the Torch.

Air Canada’s latest web signal service saves you time at the airport

Inside BlackBerry has a great new post up regarding Air Canada’s latest web signal service which combines web check-in with an Electronic Boarding Pass.

The Air Canada web signal service gives the user one-click access to flight information directly from the BlackBerry. The service also allows you to use the same email address that you use to register for Flight Notifications on the web. This means you will be updated as soon as possible if there are any changes.

One of the best parts of this service is the sensation you get when using a barcode on your BlackBerry rather than a paper boarding pass. You can bypass lineups and save time, which is a reward for being so technologically ahead of the curve.

For more about Air Canada’s latest web signal service, see the official post from RIM.
