Subject: Netletter nr 50 - Between Ourselves ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ |\^/| _| TCA |_ _|\| AIR |/|_ N E T L E T T E R > CANADA < B E T W E E N O U R S E L V E S >_./|\._< for P I O N A I R S | Your crew is: Chief Pilot - Vesta Stevenson Chief Navigator - Terry Baker tm number 50 date April 25th 1996 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ . This is Netletter number 50 - Since Oct 95, Vesta Stevenson and Terry Baker, both Vancouver Island Pionairs have been issuing a newsletter on the Internet for those Pionairs and/or ex Air Canada types who have supplied us with their Internet email addresses. The Newsletter was the brainchild of Vesta, who gave the name 'NETLETTER' and added 'Between Ourselves' - a periodical with which you are probably familiar with from the 50's and 60's. We believe that our NETLETTER, which originates from Vancouver Island, is the FIRST to use this medium to disperse information for Pionairs of Air Canada. The Netletter contains airline related information such as anecdotes or stories supplied by some of the recipients, Internet, BBS's, travel news, cheap, excuse me, inexpensive, accommodations, tours, interline travel, and, in some small way, keep our Air Canada family together and in touch. How many times are we referred to CIC *80 in the 'Horizons' or while listening to the CIC Daily Info 1-800 number - and how are we able to do that? Or even nip into the Industry Travel Office to pick up the latest Interline offerings? Our 'NETLETTER' is NOT sponsored by any Pionair group, nor are we seeking any financial support, only the Internet email addresses of those who would like to receive our 'NETLETTER'.

Air Canada's E-Ticket - No fuss, No Hassles and No tickets. Electronic Ticketing (E-Ticket) does away with tickets. Once a reservation has been made and paid for by credit card there is no paper ticket to worry about. Boarding passes are issued on the day of travel, just show the credit card used to purchase the ticket or a photo I.D.. Your seat assignment has already been made. - Nothing to lose or misplace or to fill pockets with. Air Canada presently has E-Tickets at 35 cities in Canada, with Toronto (YYZ) starting soon. =-o0o=- .

From Terry - Tax time in Canada This excuse has already been used - ' Please send me a claim form as I have had a baby. I had one before but it got dirty and I burnt it.'. And two smiles from Vesta - fictitious virus RIGHT TO LIFE VIRUS: Won't allow you to delete a file, regardless of how old it is. If you attempt to erase a file, it requires you to first see a counsellor about possible alternatives. ROSS PEROT VIRUS: Activates every component in your system, just before the whole thing quits. And one from George Brien - from Yarmouth (YQI) - a sample of NS humour- "We have a nine hole course in our town. The other day I shot a 39. It was too dark to start the second hole." -=o0o=- That's it for this time, please we need your input, send comments and email addresses of any others who may be interested to Vesta with a copy to Terry. -!- Landing on an Island in the Pacific. _____(~)_____ ! ! !
