Any time now, mods....
There is no violation and people can have ideas different than yours, right or wrong it's not a crime. You should just deal with it instead of calling for their censure.

Re: Corona Virus

Challenging the group-think echo chamber, or discussing policy alternatives isn't trolling.

I'd suggest that the responses to policy criticism I see here are worse.

Re: Cargojet stll hiring

Must be a union thing, but why does it matter if it is WB or NB? Is a WB Jet harder to fly, requires more piloting skillz? Can’t be a responsibility of passengers thing - since Cargo Jet WBs carry zero PAX. Productivity. How much more do you carry on in a 767 vs. a 727. How much faster and further ...

Re: Layoffs

But wait !!!! Everyone STOP 🛑 and take a deep breath, I was reading the AC pilot forum and there are a couple pilots that said we signed the MOU too fast. We could have asked for more . I know, shit we could have asked for a raise :wink: :wink: Didn't we? Now there are 75% government wage bailouts....

Re: Air Canada: Be afraid of the cash crunch

Yeah, that analysis is pretty generic/weak. Not only is this a different crisis than 2008, this is a different airline. It's interesting he singles out AC because they perhaps are in a better position than most legacy competitors. Everyone in this industry is burning cash, and AC has more to burn th...

WJ continues to be a significantly lower cost producer of asm’s than AC.
How do you know that? Westjet doesn't publish financials.

Re: Companies Laying off.

Jazz pilots don't own their flying, and CHR is paid a markup on its costs by AC. AC pays all the costs plus a % for their profit. That's how CHR make their $.

Do their costs have to be reflected in reality. Not full price for no flying.

Re: Layoffs

Regarding the reductions. I'm surprised how many people seem to think they will be pay protected in their current rate when/if they get reduced. The company isn't reducing you to a lower position so they can keep paying you!!! Don't make the reduction easy wrt training... that's the best way to reta...

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

I am happy to put aside differences.

But in the past it was you that insulted me, and here you still sink one more in with "senseless ass holes" , but as long as you're not going to start along that line again I think we'll be fine.

I wasn't trying to say that pilots in the middle east or asia are superior....in no way at all.

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

It is childish for pilots to attack each other just because they don't work at the same airline. Should have just left it at that... I agree 100% Lol, says an instigator himself. That's not true. Some people don't like the way I break something down, and for suggesting that the reason for the TRZ d...
