Re: Always check the model number painted on the side when getting in

Does jazz not use a QRC for shutdowns? They do. There are basically no more memory items. They would've pulled up the QRC then moved on to the longer QRH. The difference between the 200 and 900 is that the 200 has a system to more or less restow the reverser if it comes unlocked IRCC. The 900 doesn...

Re: Encore, then Jazz?

A) If you have no interest in commuting why did you apply to encore?

B) if you have no interest in commuting jazz may not be any better because you may end up on a type that doesn’t have positions in YVR and then you are commuting.

C) Pasco seems like a better job for your situation

That's good. Why did WestJet not have such language? Just didn't foresee they execs betraying them?
They never had a contract at the time just an agreement that never held much weight.

age requirement ? whatever the legal age to work is. If you can work at McDonalds you should be able to work at Sky.

Re: WestJet to be sold in friendly deal to Onex Corp. for $5 billion

Yes, trouble started as they were rolling out encore, which they then had to scale back, then came swoop and new routes and new aircraft. Just shows that your quarterly returns are tailored for the investor as they still have 1.5 billion in debt that they don't include in their reports. But ya, fue...

Pump and dump. Westjet has been struggling for years now and onex is absorbing 1.5 billion in debt. How they plan on making a profit on this, I don't know. Maybe push swoop and sell all wj assets as said above. Better than wj folding and leaving everyone in the lurch, for now. WestJet has only had ...

Truck T boned the plane and it spun around hit the prop and then the baggage door area.
holy F**K that would be one scary situation as a pilot especially if you knew it was a fuel truck.

Encore should have never been made a separate company. The union certainly makes things more complicated. It's also not just OTS pilots voting no. There are previous Encore pilots who are very unhappy that they put in their time and never got their top up pay.
What top up pay ?
