Re: AT Votes Yes for AC Acquisition

Something I've heard from the AC side is the very real possibility of Transat completely replacing Rouge.... Mainline needs pilots, so Rouge crew would slide over to mainline. Solves that. Rouge 319 and 767's at end of life would be retired and replaced by Transat's fleet with no changes to scope. ...

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...

Espp plan has been announced for all westjetters except pilots. Pilots are negotiating through alpa team. The replacement p...

Re: Will a bad written exam mark affect my career?

AC definitely does not ask for flight test marks. Unless that was decades ago.

Not sure if that’...

Re: New WestJet FO

The point is if AC stagnates, everyone will. Think that left seat's going to come sooner at WJ if the economy tanks?

Slagging someone coming to AC from WJ looking for a left seat makes no sense. If it's not coming at AC. It's for sure not coming at WJ.

Re: New WestJet FO

650 pilots coming to AC with 20 wide bodies and however many narrow bodies.

28 or so max on the way. 50 220’s.

The myth of the stagnation is way over rated (at least to a NB left seat). But keep telling yourself that.
