Re: Bonds

Don't sign. If the company wants you bad enough they will drop the requirement. If you already work for them and they insist you sign a bond to stay employed make sure you have a witness. And take them to court when they try to collect. You will probably win. Air Canada, Canadian North, Cargo Jet, T...

Re: AirTransat: for sale-Blue-rouge...?

If Transat winds up being sold what do you think happens to Air Transat?? The only reason Air Transat exists is to service Transat. Think about that. Nothing lasts forever, especially in the Canadian aviation world.

Re: TSB deploys a team of investigators to a landing incident at the Calgary International Airport, Alberta

You always torque an aircrat wheel onto the axle. First is a higher torque to seat the bearings and then back off the nut. Then you retorque to a lower number as per the manual. Don't know what this guy is talking about when he says you never torque a wheel. Never been around large aircraft obviously.

Re: Profit Sharing this April ?

This is an amusing post I must say. Canadian dollar recovery? We are only in the early stages of the Canadian dollar sinking in relation to the USD. It will be dramatic. What is going to prop it up? We sold all our gold reserves and are alienating our major trade partners. Inflation rates? Those mus...

Re: Boeing Tumbles on Grand Jury Subpoena Probing 737 MAX Approval

Boeing is hooped on this one. They all took it just a little too far. Boeing share price is going to take a beating, they are open for multiple major lawsuits and Airbus will feast on it. As will the Chinese. Just watch. What is at stake here is not the fact that training will be improved, MCAS can ...

Re: WJ still flying the 737MAX on Flight aware 16/3/19?

They do not have all the rights to ferry an aircraft for maintenance. They have to apply to TC for that specific aircraft for that specific flight and be able to prove that the aircraft is in an airworthy state. Interesting conversation knowing the present ststus of the Max.

Re: Are we entering another recession?

Short answer is yes. Who cares what all the "experts" say. Look at the situation around you. Everything is peaking or has already peaked. 2019 will be the beginning of a recession in Canada and probably 2020 for the USA. Europe is already in a recession.

The bankruptcy of NTCL is probably the final nail in the coffin for Norterra and it's little group of companies. $140 million is a a substantial chunk of money to be on the hook for. Good luck.

I had a Platinum Card for many years and it has some advantages if you are able to exploit them. But you have to deal with AMEX (dicks) and a lot of merchants want nothing to do with AMEX (dicks).
