Re: Covid Jobhunt: To send resumes or to wait until things settle down ?

I would say send them anyways, you dont really have any opportunities for any 705 jobs but with that amount of hours it might look good up north somewhere. Keep trying! Good luck

I'm curious if Jazz might consider using a -900 for freight too.
I would say no.. because then why not just use mainline for that. Just use a 320 or something.

Re: When do you think flying will be back to february 2020 level

Definitely hard to tell. Even if tomorrow they gave out a vaccine I still don't think the flood gates would open with passengers.. Its going to be gradual increase. It may never get back to as good as it was pre COVID

Re: Jazz CPA - Do they still get paid?

My understanding was the flight has to go to get any income from the CPA. I wouldnt say our savings go to AC, more that Chorus just needs to not spend the money on payroll if we arent getting any money from the CPA.

Re: Layoff Numbers

Someone correct me if I am wrong but the way I read the CEWS literature, maximum benefit is 847 per week. That will cover a bit of the payroll but most crew make more than that, so how long can operators sustain paying out the balance? Stating the obvious, this is not good. Well, some operators are...

When you go on Yelp or google reviews, do you see alot of people post positive reviews? Not really, only the negatives move them to post online most of the time. Why would a happy person go and post about it on a forum lol. My 2c

Was that exactly 675 seniority numbers from the bottom of the list? Or did the lay offs extend further because of medical leaves, parental leaves, etc?
Yes thats why, so it went higher than 675
