Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

You're right, they're worse because more people believe they are objective journalists.

But back to Transat. Why did they say they're going to use as many one month extension as they need if they only have one left?

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

The reason the American unions are so strong is because they can and will strike for gains. They've proven this time and again. America is a capitalism society. Canada is more a pseudo-socialism system where labor groups like Air Canada pilots are openly prevented from striking. Without this tool th...

I’m not sure why we should be surprised. Even the exemption from the EU requires reciprocity.
Not true according to CBC. EU only required reciprocity from China with the latest announcement.

Re: Why Can’t All Airlines Continue CEWS?

The intention of the program is to keep employees on the payroll ready for immediate bounce back of services. If you don't think that will happen with your business it might be considered abuse of the program to keep drawing money.

It is unfortunate to say the least, that the Tutor's weren't equipped with better safety equipment to help get the crew away from an emergency situation.

Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

I'm disappointed in those ejectors seats. The aircraft was in a significant nose down attitude but it wasn't until after they ejected that it went straight down. They also had what looks to be more that 100 feet of altitude when they ejected. If an ejector seat can't save you in that scenario than s...

Re: RCAF Cyclone Down

If Canada was smart they'd save their money and get the Americans to perform the recovery for them. They are planning to use this type for the next Presidential helicopter so I'm sure they are dying to know why it went down.

A321neoLRs? Yes looks like ACPA has already put a MOU to allow TRZ pilots to take over. On a side note, you AC pilots will love flying this brand new aircraft; very nice little bird. They're pulling your chain. Transat wasn't mentioned at all or any of their aircraft types. They said 220's and MAX.
