Re: Canadian housing Prices / Wages

While I do agree, things cost way more compared to wages than they used to cost, especially housing, people also want to live much more extravagant lifestyles now. 2 new cars in the driveway with all the useless gadgets, big travel trailer, boat, all on payment plans of course. That 1000 sq' bungal...

Re: Decent places to live in Vancouver area near transit to YVR?

As much as Richmond is convenient, I would avoid it like the plague. A horrible community & vibe in my opinion... Agree, like living in Brampton. Wouldn't live there if it was free. Even though it has great "shopping, buses, and Asian food". For an extra couple hundred you live downtown. You can ev...

Re: Decent places to live in Vancouver area near transit to YVR?

go for a place walking distance to yaletown skytrain station. Downtown has everything. Best location in YVR in my opinion. 20min to YVR and you dont need to worry about a car or parking, cant beat that.

Re: Swoop pay

why is he trolling? don't blame him he's on contract with TUI/Sunwing and gets a temp base here. The Sunwings guys do the same in the summer. He is just making an observation regarding wages VS cost of living. I don't blame him, its atrocious.

Re: DOH merge.

My prediction is they are merged at a 2for1 or 3for1 year ratio. So that 6 year 330 captain at AT will be slotted in at 3 years AC seniority. Then they will run a massive bid and you can bid on anything you can hold. Many more 330 positions so lots of AC guys will be able to go wide body. Most TS gu...

Re: DOH merge.

AT is not being conquered. AC wants to purchase it so their competitors do not. If Onex or TUI or some Chinese company buys it, that's bad for AC and therefore, bad for the pilot group. Long term, AC taking over AT is better for the entire AC community than if a competitor were to take it over. Exa...

Re: WestJet to be sold in friendly deal to Onex Corp. for $5 billion

Air Canada will not be sitting on its hands. WestJet has more than its work cut out for itself if it wants to secure anywhere near a 10B market cap. That market share has to come from somewhere, and AC won't be giving up any willingly. Don't ever underestimate CR....he's a shark, and likely smarter...

Re: Profit Sharing this April ?

Why would it be based on a percentage of your salary? Did they lower paid pilot make the company less profit? If anything they made them more by costing them less. 50% is by seniority, 50% split evenly, The senior pilots are also upset there are more pilots on property they have to share it with :r...

They put the Georgian ad as a picture on the site instead of a normal ad. If you use Adblock click on the adblock button top of browser and then block element and then select the ad. You wont see it again. So annoying.

Re: Gregg Saretsky is the modern Frank Lorenzo

I believe at AT you start at year 2 cap pay if you have been FO for more than 3 years. So TS would make more year 1 Cap no? Since there are no DEC.

Thank you RRJetPilot,

What is the upgrade policy and time frame in YYZ?

Thanks,

Upgrade when your number comes up 3-4 years at the moment. YUL takes a lot longer.

100% it will. Will be interesting to see where they get the pilots from. Because for sure the wages will not be mainline wages. I would bet my left nut on that. Also on the pink ties etc.

Less than 24% of the eligible 529 members of the YYZ LEC bothered to vote for their Captain and FO representative, and I understand YYC had a similar amount of engagement. It was these same LEC reps from the three bases who then "chose" the MEC positions. I'm curious as to the apathy. Is it buyer's...
