Seniority: WestJet/Swoop are common employer, you would be BOTL. Encore seniority currently does not factor on WestJet lists ( hopefully fixed soon ) This should be the single biggest concern for anyone considering going to WestJet "OTS", by far! Huge dice roll.

Re: When do you think the 737 MAX will return to operation at Air Canada?

When are passengers going to want to get back on that plane? That's the real question. As someone else said, by the time the plane returns to service people will have moved on to the next Facebook crisis. Also if the airlines make Max seats $25 cheaper than other types they’ll fill the plane Swoop ...

Re: Atlas Air 767

Would 4G negative be possible to achieve, even instantaneously? A loaded 767 is a lot of mass to make change its velocity that quickly by diving, isn't it? There is a pretty long arm between the 767 cockpit - where I presume the reading was recorded - and its lateral axis. The longer the arm, the h...

If the choice is between Jazz and Cathay, as it stands right now and assuming your relatively young and single, Cathay wins hands down.
