There are 7 registered p180's in Canada.

Re: Where is our union?

That's the first case I've ever heard of so thank you for sharing. As previously discussed, we know the virus came from China to North America by air, but I'd never heard of it being transmitted p2p on board.

Look like we are back to normal despite being anything but normal, my guess they will have plenty of applicants!

Plus lots of regular people will not bother to apply, if those who were at the top of the totem pole swoop in and get the job anyways.

Re: Air canada axes 30 routes

The government told people not to travel, effectively forcing airlines temporarily out of business. When the airlines asked the gov for help they got nothing...(crickets)

Shutting down a bunch of regional routes is just sending a message. Help us or there will be more to come.
