Re: Congrats

That's what pisses me off: they aren't taking responsibility for their own decisions. Diadem - your need to be right on all matters is a very unattractive trait within a pilot. We've all flown with that person, and they are all avoided over time by not only their colleagues but their companies as w...

You sir, have a deal. I'll get the bank draft organized immediately. What's your name? I'm not giving out that information for free; you get the details when you show me the bank draft and proof of your income for the two years required. Send me a PM and we'll discuss.

Re: Congrats

As someone who has been with AC for over 5 years now after coming back from the sandpit - AC maybe the top of the pile here but when it comes to mainline airlines there is nothing to shout about. $2900 starting take home pay should be enough to keep good pilots away. Even the states makes this plac...

Re: Congrats

Any AT pilots who "wouldn't touch AC with a ten foot pole" you are all welcome to not come over when the time comes. Swoop, SW, Flair would all be happy to have you. Lots of AC pilots would be happy to see you go elsewhere if you feel you are too good to slum it at Air Canada. As someone who has be...

LOL... Are you really comparing the needs of protecting life and property with the need for a cheap all inclusive? What's next Canadian soldiers deploying overseas on peacekeeping?

Re: BETRAYAL!

Already some chatter about a JS ban. Probably not a bad idea. Better to keep the area clear rather than getting under the skin of a pilot trying to do their job. It’s your jump and I respect that. The support for a true seniority list is there and this isn’t over yet. I think cool heads will prevai...

Re: Recession.

Look, it's illegal (obviously) for Canadian companies to bribe government officials either domestically or in other jurisdictions. Mo...

Re: SWOOP - A New Hires Future

Coupled with the apparent hypocrisy of WJ/Encore pilots being absolved of "lowering the bar," makes for one messy and convoluted double standard. I don't know about hypocrisy on this board, but to be fair most pilots at Encore do not want to support the conditions at Swoop. Like said before, there ...

Re: North America 737/320 Pay Round-up

Of course AC has some of the best benefits and wages. This allows all other operators to have less "because we ain't AC". ... and that makes it AC"s fault that nobody else seems to be able to catch up? That doesn't make any sense. As I said, take a look in the mirror if you think you're wages are l...

You wonder why people keep applying at AC? A couple SW CA's just joined, one was 11+ years... Why do they come to AC? Because despite its shortcomings, and isolated issues, the contract is still as a whole better than all the rest... I know one of those captains that just went from sunwing to AC. H...

Re: Possibly returning to Canada

I think it’s more the smug superiority most expats seem to convey to those who stay in Canada with our pesos and our low pay and our long upgrade times and our draconian regulations and our high costs of living. Of course there is far more to staying in Canada than just that, which is why I don’t e...

Doesn't seem so, but certainly seems that the WestJet pilots are finding out they have accountability for their actions.

On a larger scale this poses the question: Is piloting a profession like lawyers, doctors, or nurses whereby one is recognised for one's previous experience from one company to another; or is it a union-shop-job whereby one progresses based on one's seniority not necessarily merit?

Yeah, maybe I would. If I think he/she could get the job done and it'll save me a few bucks. Maybe it's a value added service. Who exactly defined the official job description of a pilot?
