Re: #Swoopprez Out!

Eurowings LCC carrier shutting down...Swoop next? The company said it was ceasing operations for its Germanwings brand, speeding up a move already decided before the crisis. Its Eurowings low-cost division would retire 10 Airbus A320s, while its SWISS, Austrian Airlines and Brussels Airlines group m...

Re: 2020 Hiring

More likely to Cargojet. They already operate this type and with the same engines and since they have been certified to operate in Canada it would be a quick and easy transition....other than Cargo doors🙂.

Re: One List

I agree with Sarg. JBI one list or BOTL pilots are and will still leave for Air Canada while they are still hiring in droves and that appears to be the quickest upgrade and good career move. Everything is cyclical and down the long road I wouldn’t be surprised to see that WestJet offers the best opp...

Completely agree. I don’t think ALPA is the answer or any better than ACPA.

Re: One List

Jazz never had flow to A/C and people still applied there. In the end you are still flying a state of the art airplane for an airline with a decent CBA and other perks. It is not perfect but is definitely improving.

Re: OTS WesJet Mainline FO

The majority of morale at WestJet is not directly tied to the one list, actually morale could improve without the one list. Junior jet pilots morale improves dramatically without the one list as they are no longer under 100 to 500 Encore pilots who would have flowed over to mainline ahead of them. T...

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

Federal Transport Minister Marc Garneau has given his approval to the proposed $3.5-billion acquisition of WestJet Airlines by Onex Corp. The Calgary-based airline says the minister determined the deal doesn't raise public-interest issues for national transportation. WestJet and Onex entered into a ...

Re: Swoop pay

So the latest Swoop bid for 14 Captain and 10 F/O positions has 9 Encore pilots bidding....not exactly a mass exodus over to Swoop now that the one list was voted down.

The MEC also said if it fails the company will have to put the money into a better contract at Encore making it a more desirable Regional than others in order to attract talent.

Re: One list

For the record JBI I was not directing my comment at you. I cut and pasted from Biff who’s post I agreed with..but not with his views on ALPA. Only after did I see I also copied your name so I see why you would think I was directing it at you. Sorry, that was not my intention.

Re: One list

JBI A “no” vote means the company and ALPA go back and rework it. A “yes” vote means we are happy with it and don’t want any changes. It’s as simple as that. To suggest the 90 day clause will be acted upon is strange. “Vote yes now and we will cancel it right away”. Is that even legal? If I was the ...

Re: SWOOP - A New Hires Future

I just flew with a mgmt pilot last week ferrying a 737 from Kelowna with the new seat layout back to Calgary...he said they are going to 20 planes pretty quick. He was also of the opinion that the Swoop LOU would need to be re-evaluated in order to fill all the positions. We will have to wait and se...
