Re: ONEX plans

Maybe someone at onex will knock some sense into the higher ups. Encore also continues to bleed pilots at a steady rate, and pretty soon will need to start shrinking the schedule unless there are some incentives provided soon to get people to stick around.

Re: Airline lifestyle

At westjet for a YVR base it's at least 5 years maybe longer. All new hires are YYZ based. From YVR island to YYZ not a pretty commute at all.

Re: A "NEW" One List?

Is there any other airline precedent for the 'bump and flush'? I have a hard time seeing any company agree to that. Given hard times necessitating lay offs, the last thing they would want is to trigger all the expense of the sudden extra training required. Just playing devil's advocate here... That...

Re: Why does anyone want to work at WestJet?

Not for free. And not without repercussions if your intended flight goes mechanical and your back-up flight subsequently fills up and leaves you as a last minute no-show. At Westjet, no problem, you are pay protected and they will confirm you on the next available flight to catch you up to your pai...

Soooo, anything about the Swoop demotions and pay?


Swoop has until Dec 1st to demote OTS hires. Bid closed last week for upgrades from Westjet. Timeline is tight to get training completed in time but Swoop in not yet flying to USA so crewing issues shouldn’t be a problem.

Re: They were going to lock everyone out and shut the doors?

YOS, trip and duty rigs, DH inside the block and cost of living raises going forward. That's what we've asked for and that's mostly been agree to already. All industry standard stuff that WJ pilots have not had before.

John why isn’t WJ and ALPA negotiating next week. ALPA is ready everyday to sit down with management. It seems WJ is too busy and they now want to extend conciliation. Sorry that doesn’t work. You negotiate hard until the end and the we’ll see about an extension.

Push for a one list with Swoop and maybe this may get everyone back to the table vs having the CIRB imposing something th...

Re: When do lower fuel prices = lower ticket prices?

At Westjet I've noticed that as the price of fuel drops we start to fly faster. This burns more fuel but also saves cost on airtime related expenses. So lower fuel cost doesn't always translate into lower ticket prices. There are a lot of variables.

Re: Lost income

We are guaranteed 77.5 hours per month or 930 hours a year. Once you subtrack our vacation most pilots will fly around 820hrs per year. Still lots of time for overtime. Very few WJ pilots will be affected by this.
