Re: Are people in the Airlines as miserable as those here?

No, and you might notice most of miserable people here are not at the airlines. They’ll even talk about how miserable it is at the airlines, when they’re not at the airlines.

Re: Question regarding, manifests, airlines and regulations. Boarded a plane, fell asleep and missed my stop

I remember we had an extra head and the agent said “oh don’t worry about it will fix itself in the system later” and I was like uhhh no we should fix it now. I wonder if the pilots were ever notified properly in this case.

Regional to Sunwing?

A friend is convinced it is a good move after 2 years at a regional to try and get a job at Sunwing. Assuming they get an offer...Good idea or bad idea? Worth giving up the seniority? Worth the risk of going with a vacation airline? Thoughts please!

Re: The Ol' PFO

There's some annoying people at Jazz I'd rather not fly with. You've probably seen them too, on YouTube, or walking through the terminal with orange socks and their tunic open. They seem to be doing a good job keeping these people out until they can mature. Never ceases to amaze me how much self-aw...

In all seriousness, not the end of the world. You only loose if you don’t get back up again.

Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

Just because a kid is a rich kid with dreams of flying doesn’t make them an a-hole. Why are you guys so judgemental? Are you jealous? Or just bitter? You play the hand you are dealt. Some people are dealt better hands than others. Get over it.

Guys let’s calm down and step off our high horses and face the facts. Flying an airplane is really not that hard.

Re: C Series lands at EGLC. Toronto Island loses out. Again.

How many more years until we see a runway extension and the C series hopping in and out of YTZ? Money talks and it’s surely inevitable. Hopefully they’ll knock down those smoke stacks at some point.

Re: Regional Career

Go to mainline and establish seniority on the most junior aircraft. Stay senior on the most junior aircraft. If you enjoy regional airline type flying, fly the E190 or A220. The regional airline world is cutthroat. Air Canada is ten times more secure than Jazz, Encore, Sky Regional, and Georgian. J...

Re: Regional Career

Someone once said the mainline thing was basically the same job for more money. Less days worked, less legs, for more money. Layover in bigger cities. Same view out the front. However there are little to no single-dayers and more jetlag potential at a mainline carrier. So if those are important fact...

So the onus is on the aircraft manufacturers to adequately dummy-proof their aircrafts. Two crashes from the sam...
