Re: Gender X weight

I feel that "Gender X" is identity appropriation. It's far too similar to "Generation X", "Gen X", etc, and unfairly associates/confuses with my age identity. There are 23 other letters to choose from, plus infinite numbers, or just plain old something else. Gen X came first. Those incels better pi...

Re: Gender X weight

If your having a weight issue just ask everyone to self identify as female. You can then usually get all the passengers and bags on.

Re: New hire bids

You're fooling yourself if you think otherwise. I haven't seen the lifestyle at Encore, but I am right to be skeptical about Jazz based on the fact that they make you agree to move somewhere before telling you where. I don't mean to pick on you specifically, plausiblyannonymous, but being a recent ...

Re: August Equip Bid

Now that AC bid is out Jazz will need lots of pilots if AC needs to fill each GS with 60% of Jazz pilots. I think Jazz will need to give AC 480 pilots ... ouch That assuming the 600+ Transat pilots aren’t filling a bunch of them I doubt very much that AC will park all the TS planes. Under ACPA rule...

From my understanding, Jazz has been cancelling an absurd amount of flights which are Air Canada paying passengers and Air Canada flights.

Re: August Equip Bid

Once Rouge takes over all the YFC YSJ flying there’s not much need for a YYZ Q base. Do YYZ crews continue to DH east or west to start every pairing? YVR Q base will continue to grow. Out east do we open a YHZ Q base? Way more flying there for the Q than YYZ but open a base or continue to dh crews f...

Re: Gate checking carry on in Canada

I heard it from a friend who heard it from a AC agent that at check in you can check a “carryon” size bag for free regardless of ticket type. This is at check in not the gate. Nothing about this on AC website. Has anyone ever heard/experienced this.

Re: ATPL as a requirement

With the AC flow through, mostly captains, coupled with the fact jazz hires sub 1000 hour no ATPL pilots, it will eventually catch up to them.

Re: Reverser Light leads to Engine Shutdown

The pilots did the right thing in shutting the engine down. You don't want to waste time when presented with a bad reverser. They then ran the qrh, which directed them to the correct procedure for that aircraft and they continued as they should. Hardly even worth mentioning really. What!! They were...

Re: Reverser Light Leads to Engine Shutdown

On the CRJ 200 you will get an amber REV UNLOCKED message. Procedure is to call for the QRC (quick response checklist)
On the CRJ 900 you will get a red REV DEPLOYED message. Procedure is to call for the QRC.
It is not a memory item to do a shutdown on either aircraft

Re: Reverser Light Leads to Engine Shutdown

What happens in an essentially centreline thrust aircraft when you shut down an engine at cruise speed? You slow down a bit? What happens if you have the buckets deploy at cruise power? Sounds like they weren't sure and played it safe. I'd call that a win. Wrong. There is a procedure for the situat...
