Re: 737NG Booklet

+1 for Bill's Cockpit Companion. Haven't tried the app but I feel like it'd be well worth the $85, so I'll get it.

Re: Flair Summer Expansion

It doesn't matter one bit if the timing is off by a few months. The plan isn't based on the summer of '21. its a multi year expansion and if COVID keeps everyone on the ground to the fall then it hurts everyone as much, if not more than Flair. The airline will be there and positioned to take advant...

Re: Where is Canada airline bailout? The deal was supposed to be ‘imminent’ — so why are we still waiting?

Yet another way Canada managed to screw their own airlines and divert business to US airlines. It’s almost laughable at this point. https://www.cbc.ca/news/business/canadian-snowbirds-hotel-quarantine-land-border-travel-1.5980913 Let me say the vast, vast majority of the population have zero tolera...

What's wrong with doing a medical? Many airlines do it.

Re: Where is Canada airline bailout? The deal was supposed to be ‘imminent’ — so why are we still waiting?

Honestly I've long given up the idea this financial assistance/loans/bailout or whatever you want to call it, is coming. I'm sure most airlines are already doing this, but here we are financially planning assuming no help from the government. That way, if it comes, it will be a relief/bonus but not ...

Re: Flair Summer Expansion

Dont ever believe the quoted prices on their website man, that's the classic attitude that leads to people being taken advantage of by ULCcs, their hole business model is predicated on taking advantage of exactly that. When we did flights for Flair a few years back the passengers were mostly immigr...

For anyone that's interested, Gemini Jets is making a 1/200 scale Air Transat A321NEO. Should be released soon if not already.

It's calculated based on time away from base. But yes, if it were 24 hours, then it would be $84.

Re: Flair Summer Expansion

Yes, there is a way to make the ULCC/LCC/whatever CC nomenclature you want to assign, work. Flair is resolving to make that come to fruition. So far, it doesn't look like they are failing as all the pundits predicted within their first 1 or 2 years of inception in the airline side of the biz. Don't...

Re: Finding a pilot job

If you refer to you and me, I think we probablyagree. But for an ethically challenged person who makes money every time someone watches his video, then yes, I expect you might disagree. But from their perspective (ego and money), the watches are wins. Remember the guy who shot Lennon? Or the others...

Re: Family Life as a Pilot

This question is hard to answer. It depends on a variety of metrics. Where you live geographically, kids? Where do they go to school. What's your partners career (if applicable) like? What level of your career are you in? What is your end goal geographically? Most importantly, what is your seniority...

Re: Vacation bookings through the roof in Europe. Easyjet up 600%

I’d be more curious to see how it compares to the same week last year not last week. If you are operating at 5% capacity and your bookings are up 500% that’s still only 25 % of pre covid Good point, but I also wonder if the 600% is based on projected operating capacity, vs 5% , if that's what it ac...
