Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Updated Purchase Price at $5 per share

TRZ stock trading under 5$, what's up with that? The stock has been on a steady decline since mid December, likely due to the Canadian governments delay in approving the deal. It’s become political now and I don’t think Canada will come out with a decision until the Europeans do, which puts strain ...

Re: New MOA details

With the whole “Reserve Best Fit,” Crew Sked will own your life. No more passing down. I worked at Jazz who used “Best fit” and it seemed like any and every reason would be used to prevent you from passing down. It will be a big lifestyle change for those senior people who would bid reserve. I know...

Re: New MOA details

CPA Scope grievance is “resolved.” What does that look like ? Awaiting further information from ACPA. If ratified, the scope will change to max 35% consolidated block hours can be operated by CPA’s. The grievance being resolved is likely the catalyst for improvement elsewhere. Remember under the cu...

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

MOA #2 is a bag of crap. Just like the "union" that is proposing it. Does it include the MEC continuing at 82 hrs while the Membership languish at 63 --- 2 hours below the Contract bare minimum?? Article 1 should have been sewn up tight, with NO outstanding grievance. Any "Flat-payer...

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

I heard the new MOA is pretty good all considered. Does AC know something about the future of air travel demand? It's better than I thought it would be, mind you the bar was set pretty low. At least they are acknowledging the 75 hour flat pay problem from MOA1. On a related note anyone else find it...

Re: Layoffs

I'm curious to hear what some of those who now are contemplating retirement think of that portion of the MOA? I wouldn't be critical of anyone who decides to wait it out, their seniority has earned them that right. I'm sure the decision making process is different for a 59 year old than a 64 year o...

Re: Layoffs

What happens to flight attendants is a completely different ball game to pilots. Only one of them can be re-trained in an afternoon of operating door handles. True, but it appears they’ll get EI, health benefits, and travel benefits. I doubt any pilot that gets lay off notice will get that. Seems l...

That could not have been a more ignorant post.(Both of them) The fact is if we all need to do our part. If you are in an accident tomorrow and for some reason or another need care it may not be there to save you because of the virus and how over run the system is. If we don’t flatten the curve ASAP...

Re: Layoffs

While the layoffs go in reverse seniority, they would certainly run a CMSC bid showing where the reductions are. And everyone getting reduced would be able to bid what their seniority could hold. They may be (certainly are) looking how to best target the position reductions to minimize bumping, tra...

Re: Layoffs

Contractually, the only way they can apply layoffs is in reverse system seniority order. Not by base or aircraft type or whether or not you have a beard. Force Majeure is defined in the contract and it does not apply to layoffs. Given these unprecedented times, management certainly could break the c...

Re: Boeing Systemic Problems Continue

This has nothing whatsoever to do with MCAS and is not considered to be safety critical. The 787 is currently having a software issue that will be rectified in the next update. The fleet has not been grounded nor should it. Just because there is a software issue that doesn’t make an aircraft unsafe...

Re: Boeing Systemic Problems Continue

The technical recertification of this airplane was a long time ago; the issue has been political and optics for months now.

Re: Boeing Systemic Problems Continue

How exactly does this work then? MCAS is required flight control system for certification of the aircraft to fly. But it’s going to disable itself if both AoA sensors don’t agree? How then is the aircraft still certified to fly? It works the same way as every other system on the airplane. Once the ...

Re: Boeing Systemic Problems Continue

You completely misread my post. No one has seen the data on how the 737 Max flies without MCAS. I’m merely suggesting that their is no proof that the airplane won’t flip upside down without out MCAS installed. The Transport Canada email leak suggests that they don’t have he data on how the MAX flie...

Re: Boeing Systemic Problems Continue

I think that since they have been testing the fix on pilots in the engineering simulator one can conclude that there is a fix. I think that one can safely assume that this is the #1 priority at Boeing. A proposed fix. It’s not a fix until it’s approved by regulators. I imagine there have been many ...
