You fly for rouge? Jesus. I honestly wondered if you were even a pilot.

The obvious question is if it's such a great deal why does your husband continue to fly for WestJet?

Re: AC New hires please use your WB bid

How come there is a course right called NH New Hire on the course right list but it isn't used for your first course? Wouldn't it be fair to allow new hires to not spend a course right especially since they often have no choice in what airplane they get?

Re: Career First Officer at AC by design?

Another factor is your sex and race, something you have zero control over. So there's no point in feeling bad when it could have been something as simple as what you were born as.

Re: North Atlantic Tracks

Yes you can request step climbs on NAT system. Whether you will get cleared for it is another question. ATC would have to be quite sure you are nowhere near other traffic to approve a climb. For flight planning purposes it's usually assumed you will not be able to step climb while oceanic.

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

Looks like still lots of OTS hires in the last class. The class size was only 21 instead of 40 though. Usual mix of military, WestJetters, ex-pats returning, etc.
Nice to see some Georgian 1900 folks after their positions were eliminated.

Air traffic controllers can use cannabis off-duty but are expected to be fit to work when they show up for their shifts.

It's the principle of it.
That's very brave of you. I would be terrified of being tested in the U.S., Europe, Asia, or any of the other places that do random drug testing on airline pilots after they land.

Re: Uniform question

What's up with Air Canada pilots not wearing their full uniform these days? Quite often them not wearing the hat. I saw one taking his tie off in the terminal yesterday. Once you're done your flight are you allowed to just start stripping it off in public as you walk away from the plane?

You should post your issue in the Jazz forum. They might know more about what the contract says. I kind of doubts it mentions you are entitled to preferred seating but who knows.
