Re: Congrats

Just like some people want to live in Canadian society and will take a lower paid job (globally), you aren't much different as you came back to Canada to stay married. Not much different. We give up some things, in order to have other things. Life is a balance. Money is not everything. Some people ...

Re: Swoop pay

Of course it's a problem. It lets a company circumvent our laws to run an unsustainable business model that skims the cherry seasonal flying to the detriment of the companies that only employ pilots with the right to work here, and somehow manage to do it year round. This puts downward pressure on ...

Re: Jazz or Sunwing ?

Take home net pay for Jazz FOs especially on reserve is around $2000 a month. There is an oversupply of FOs on reserve so we rarely get called to fly and basically make no perdiems or overtime pay. When you factor in the average cost of rent for a one bedroom condo in YYZ or YVR being $2000 a month...

If you are looking for a faster upgrade time, sunwing is probably a better place to go. Probably?? What are the upgrade times at WestJet? Sunwing is 49% owned by Tui.

Pathetic salary and yet still more than the first two years at our national airline. Unreal
Ain't that the truth. Hopefully soon these companies and big red can't scrape the bottom of the experience barrel any more and will have to start paying a liveable wage for experience.
