Re: Pay raise

Looks like transat beats rouge on every scale and year. This basically makes ts pilots equals or better to rouge pilots from a salary point of view, especially when considering how little they actually work? Removes any sort of negotiation that ts pilots will have a better career at AC and hence ha...

Info on WS2766 Dec 1 yyz-puj

Good day everyone. My parents are travelling on ws2766-PUL on Dec 1. They are novice travelers. With the weather tomorrow they are naturally concerned about the flight. Is there a way to track the inbound flight? Or does anyone know where the plane comes in from, or does it start in yyz. The west je...

Re: Computer problems

Expedia is a travel agent. Travel agents have to make changes/refunds etc.

Booking through the original airline is the easiest for changes.

Re: CBC News story / no-fly ban

Buying something for a fraction of the regular price, online, from an unknown user who won't use his real name is an obvious sign and as an adult you hold responsibility to know better.

Re: AC offer AT $13 per share

Being owned by a real estate company I would be more concerned about being broken up and sold off later down the rather than owner by an airline.

Re: AC offer AT $13 per share

How is that great for Transat pilots. They will be owned by a real estate company. They care about the hotel properties, not the airline.

Pilots will loose out on the sweet heart deal they would have received at AC. Maybe they will get an employee discount on their next use of a real estate agent.

Re: Air Canada Outbid

Is Transat even allowed to entertain offers right now? Sounds like bargaining in bad faith.

Oh ya. And the under funded real estate company wants the Quebec government to fund the deal. Nice!

Re: AC offer AT $13 per share

What if air canada doesn’t actually want to buy it. They put an offer if, but it gets turned down by the completion police.

The precedent is set and onex can’t buy it either.

Re: Encore contract negotiations

Just to keep things in perspective though, Jazz and Sky regional pilots not only don't have YOS, but also no guaranteed flow...perspective! True. Except Jazz and Sky pilots will most likely end up at AC, Not WJ. AC where pay and progression are assured. WJ where you get to aspire to seat right seat...

Re: Encore contract negotiations

Max 16 hr duty day on reserve is an improvement! WTF Max duty day is 14 hours. However, your duty day must end no more than 16 hours from the start of the callout window. So if your callout window starts at 0330, then whether they call you at 0330 or 1330 the latest they can schedule you to finish ...

Re: Westjet or Sunwing

West jet is much more diversified incase on an economic downturn.

Sunwing transports one type of passenger for one purpose to a limited set of destinations.

Think of where you want to be siting in the next down turn.

Re: Cancelled flights.
