Re: Encore's reference calls suck

Perhaps a quick email or phone call to the WestJet HR department might be more beneficial than an AvCanada rant? Sometimes public shaming works better to correct the actions of a multi-billion dollar company that should and could do better. Maybe Dave P has an answer... though he has been less than...

Re: 737 max

Company has what 500 MAX pilot out of 4000? So worst case scenario all those position were eliminated you would need around seniority 3500 to have a spot still. This will not happen though. There are too many empty position to fill up. This doesn't even make sense. It isn't like Air Canada doesn't ...

Re: 737 max

Cause the 320 neo with fume events is far superior I would take that over plowing into the ground nose first. To be fair, I think the world has vastly overreacted. But that being said, my understanding is that Air Canada is not exactly thrilled with the 737's. Maybe it is time to correct a mistake ...

Re: 737 max

Maybe Air Canada will dump the rest of their 737 Max orders and order a bunch of new Airbus's. Or maybe they can board the Delta band wagon and convince Airbus to make the A220 - 500.

Re: WestJet is in trouble. Is becoming more like Air Canada the fix?

I think when you have the CEO who led the unionization of Westjet keep saying, he doesn't understand why the employee group unionized, pretty much sums up the issues at play at Westjet, and just how out of touch management has become with its labour groups. And given some of the antics employed by ...

Re: WestJet is in trouble. Is becoming more like Air Canada the fix?

Didn't see the relationship to the title in the article. Glad to hear Ed is looking forward to the negotiations.... Good article except they put a positive spin on the swoop pilot moving over from WestJet using the word promotion. Wish they would have dug went deeper there. I think when you have th...

You guys get too angry when someone disagrees
Well when someone calls all the Jazz pilots “scared,” it’s offensive and downright disrespectful.
Just the ones that voted in favour of the contract.

Re: 17 year TA?

Under the terms of the tentative ammended CPA with AC, CHR will make very little off the AC CPA. The vast majority of the revenue and almost all of the profit will be derived from Chorus Aviation Capital (leasing). Chorus does not care who they lease to for the Express fleet. All they care is that ...

Re: Think carefully before you make your next move

If that were true, it still wouldn't explain why AC just accepted that Jazz should do the flying. SR's payscale tops out at five years, not 17, so if Jazz went to AC why wouldn't AC take the time to think about their cost savings between now and 2035 by potentially going with another operator?

Pal, sounds like you need to go search out some info. That's not at all how it went down from what they said at the road show. That being said I'm sure AC is happy to get rid of GGN in this process.

Re: Think carefully before you make your next move

We do stand the risk that the work moves to the other express carriers and we are left with the scraps. Yes there will be jobs to be had, but I would far rather work under our contract than the works rules at Georgian or Sky. No offence to those groups, but overall they are not even close. And yet,...

Maybe we should poll the SR pilots, show them our contract and see how they would vote, my guess it would pass.
