In french, but basically saying that from three sources close to the matter, Air Canada wants the government to block the deal... Thoughts?

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

Probably the best outcome or news that Transat could get so far in the current situation; delays. There is no way AC would be able to absorb the transaction right now (mid-2020 was the estimate initially). Holding on and waiting for an extra 4 months will be hard for Transat I guess, but at least i...

Re: 79 Airplanes Retired

For those in the know - what was the rationale behind eliminating all of the LCC 319 and WB RP positions? Also, why the reductions on the 737? WB RP is mostly a junior seat also, I'm just guessing majority will fall into this layoff, they can eliminate them immediately and cover the flying with exi...

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

On another note, May 2nd passed, which means Transport Canada (should) has made its recommendation to Minister Garneau. I don't think the info was supposed to go public, and obviously it didn't.

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

There is one simple truth to this acquisition of Transat by AC...There is NOT enough flying anymore for both work groups because of COVID-19. We can speculate a lot about when full recovery is gonna happen, but to come back at the same level where 4500 AC pilots and 600 TS pilots are required will t...

Just a rumor, but heard that the two GS in March are the last ones before a hiring freeze because of the coronavirus.

Re: Hiring on stand by

Right now it looks like it has almost stopped at least for this summer... No one has heard anything yet or had a reply from the AC Express Pilot Careers Portal posting that came out in March. And only a few have been hired from PML 2.0 in the last six months. Mostly people from PML 1.0 hired recentl...

Re: Rumor about %30 pay increase

Normal pay after tax and every deduction (I have family insurance so it's more expensive), is 1000$ per two weeks (40 credits). First year F/O YUL based. Actually pretty simple, about 44% of the salary are deductions for me (tax and benefits). My guess, captains would be close to 60% in deductions b...

Re: Jazz Aug 31 Equipment BID

Talking about more senior folks, there are probably now quite a few college grads with at least 2 years of seniority who got their ATPLs recently. A good part of the upgrades will go to these guys in my opinion.

Re: DE Captains ?

DE captains are highly unlikely. The only way this could happen is if there are no qualified pilots on the seniority list who have bid to fill vacancies. Unless Jazz starts hiring low time F/Os only, there will always be someone qualified and willing to fill a captain vacancy.

Re: Accept this job offer?

I think you should accept the job if you don't have anything better right now. It's always better to fly right now, than to wait on the ground. I was in the same exact situation as you 2 years ago, I accepted the job which did not include a lot of flying, but it was still enough turbine experience t...

So... What do I do if my IFR is supposed to expire on May 1st? Do I still have to do a checkride ($$$) or my IFR won't expire May 1st with the new regulation to come? Because I don't want to pay for a checkride if I don't need to!! :rolleyes:
