Doesn’t take a genius to figure it out, the names of the “steering committee” are right there on that website.

Re: Correction

Hey, it's just a small thing, but could one of you dudes, dudettes, or non-binariettes let your MEC know there's a typo in their email header? It's the second email in a row like this. I'm sure they know they don't represent the WestJet pilots. They just need to add the word "Encore" and ...

Those that will be affected when the “one list” disappears. Covid has brought to light the issues with the one list and the companies ability/willingness to circumvent it. It’s only a matter of time before it’s voted out.

Re: Encore Recalls

Safe to assume those spots will all be filled with mainline pilots? Given the recent round of 400 layoffs and the fact most of them had a fair amount of seniority. Sounds like this is all new guys. This isn't a reduction bid. It's gonna be all laid off guys That is correct. Even though there’s goin...

Re: Porter receiving E195-E2?

There’s a possibility they’re telling the truth to the media when they said there’s no plans for Porter to fly these jets. If Porter Aviation Holding did buy these planes, it’s likely the parent company is looking to diversify and get into the aircraft leasing business. With ULCC’s popping up around...

Re: ALPA Criticizes Cargojet

ALPA’s response should be an article how Cargojet’s tactics are nothing more than employee intimidation.

Re: Age 67 or 69

This thread has gone off the rails. But for the older pilots hoping to stay on longer and feeling as though they should get sympathy/support from the younger pilots is delusional. The younger generation has every right to look out for themselves and want older pilots to retire and vacate left seats/...

I don't see any issue with that. It's just a statement of fact.
