Re: Jazz or Sunwing ?

Jazz can suck it. It’s not like he took a Kingair PPC from a mom and pop shop and went to work for the competition next door after 3 months. If Jazz paid their FOs more than starving wages then they wouldn’t have people leaving. Look at the SWG payscale, unlike Jazz, it’s a career destination and n...

Re: Recession.

I'm happy to let other countries enforce their own laws, including those applicable to Canadian companies operating in their jurisdictions. I don't see any need for the Canadian government to competitively disadvantage Canadian businesses by enforcing the laws of another country, any more than I ex...

Re: Recession.

I agree with your point that bribery is the norm in some other countries, and that we shouldn't disadvantage Canadian companies from competing on a level playing field. You both realize that in any of these places bribery and corruption are illegal as well right? Saying that we shouldn't disadvanta...

Re: Operating crew / Catsa

Why wouldn't you use the crew portal ? Yellow pass / Renewal. Foreign crew. Some places they won't let you go through unless your RAIC was issued there. For a federal organization they certainly aren't consistent. I've found some are great and friendly while others despise crew with a passion.

Re: North America 737/320 Pay Round-up

Now compare that to the US operators.... According to a number of users here we are not allowed to compare against the states. We can only compare against Air Canada which is allowed to set their own prices for pilots irregardless of market forces because they will never be short of pilots applying...

Well when someone calls all the Jazz pilots “scared,” it’s offensive and downright disrespectful.

Better pay & way more buying power with the money you have. But it's "apple and oranges". So no need to look...umm...Koolaid Umm,...

Ha, I flew with this guy. What a train wreck. He was pushed from GGN. Last I heard he was flying in Burma. I heard about the pillow. What happened with locking an FO out?

Are their minimums still at 1500 hours " real expectations" ?
If you have 1500 hrs skip flying a noisy clothes washer and go fly a heavy for Cargojet. Their minimums are now also 1500.

Re: SWOOP OTS Captains punted from left seat...

Bottom line for me is that facts are presented in a realistic manner with supporting data and analysis to back an argument, as opposed to opinion being represented as fact, without anything to back it up.

Re: SWOOP OTS Captains punted from left seat...

Feel free to play around with the proportions of different employee groups and their associated salaries to come to your own conclusions. WestJet and Air Canada pilots are two of the most rewards pilot groups in Canada. They make up less than 6000 of the total 20000 or so (my guess based upon past ...

Government of Canada data is normalised to a rate for a normal working week so 40*52*hourly_rate, so is ~$85K for all types of pilot (Commercial, fixed wing, helicopter, flight school, etc) going by the info they provide. As I said we could all go on and on about all the details of the data provide...
