Re: FRMS pairings

BGI at rouge was mainly done as a turn on the airbus and a layover (for the pilots) on the 767. Reason being is the 767 took longer to turn than a 319 (and sometimes 321) and I imagine a canceled 280 seat airplane would be more expensive than a 200-136 seat jet. I did a number of them, never went ov...

Re: Retirements at Westjet

Hopefully they get their jobs back. What an embarrassing excuse of an airline WestJet is becoming. From some of the best employee relations to this. It's embarrassing.

If they don't get their jobs back, hopefully the membership stands up to fight.

Fired?

Rumour has it this meme is worth people getting fired over? I sure hope WestJet brothers and sisters stand up aggressively for these pilots. What a joke.

Re: Protest to save Canadian aviation

What does MM even do? Nice to see TP represent ALPA and show some leadership. A few AC pilots is a start, but next time I'd like to see our CEO and MEC chair represent us.

Re: Appologies

Agreed. I am sorry for MMs action. He is speaking on half of himself. Jazz pilots or Sky pilots should not put their careers in jeopardy because ACPA is too afraid to grow a set of balls and demand our pilots do anything about it. This letter seems overly political. Perhaps MM is afraid of the boys ...

Re: Did ACPA MEC vote themselves a raise while others are laid-off?

With taking concessions I think in reality they should have kept flat payers at 75-77.5 hours. Failing that perhaps a 53 hour (or what ever an accountant deemed necessary) for the rest of us to keep flat payers up. More then anything I wonder what this MOA did for us. Let's face it, the 10 year deal...

Re: Why are upgrades still happening at AC?

Once you're part way through the upgrade process our CA allows for the candidate to continue with their upgrade. It's a little awkward right now for max guys or Rouge guys who as per the CA can continue their upgrade, but they don't have an airplane to do it on.

Re: A220 cruising altitude

Seems to be happening to new engines only. These engines are built to such tight tolerances that anything slightly out can cause an issue. Once the engines seem to get some time on them and “loosen up” they seem ok. It’s a combination software and hardware fix. Word is maybe the fix will be approve...

Re: Advice needed for choices of schools!!!

Id suggest Harv's Air personally. With the weather being VFR more frequently than the other spots, chances are you'll likely keep more current and fly more often, which helps by being current. (if you don't fly for a week, the first portion of the first flight back will be getting back in the swing ...

Re: Commercial Airline Pilots: What are some things you love and hate about your job?

What are some annoying things about your job? Other departments. Flight operations have great colleagues. Unfortunately other departments pay peanuts now, so as the saying goes... Sometimes (most of the time) we have to be proactive and hold other departments feet to the fire. Delays and not gettin...

As of right now Rouge does already have reserve. It's voluntary and only when the corp needs it, but the reserve rules are significantly better than ML. To just get ML reserve would be a huge concession. We are not in a recession and there is no reason why we should negotiate a concession. Managemen...
