Re: A320 CA pay in Cathay Pacific after the "Paycut"

This thread is a null point because the Cathay group has started layoffs too now that the government wage subsidy is over. CX cut the bottom 200 pilots and cancelled all starting classes. KA ceased to exist overnight. For the remaining pilots at CX, management has conveniently removed the last in-f...

Re: Save Canadian Aviation March in Ottawa Oct 20th

Twa22, your elitism posts remind me of way too many in the United States right now in the airline C-Suite. They are not the first, nor the last. They all want their profits treated as pure capitalism, untouched, untaxed and unfettered, and when losses occur, they run straight to socialism. But only...

Re: Save Canadian Aviation March in Ottawa Oct 20th

I do want to reiterate that my stance isn't regarding bailouts per say, but this has been the main topic that has been focused on... I guess bailout has been used interchangeably with easing quarantine restrictions also While I do believe some form of compensation such as a loan in exchange for a go...

Re: Save Canadian Aviation March in Ottawa Oct 20th

I really think some of you really don't understand what's at stake here... Also, why the hell should the 777 captain sacrific his salary for the betterment of others?

Re: Save Canadian Aviation March in Ottawa Oct 20th

I think it’s presumptuous to suggest Covid screening will have a dramatic effect on improving passenger loads and airline’s return to profitability. The country’s economic reality, if our airlines start to fail - will be devastating and long term. To say the least. I don't know if you're referring ...

Re: Save Canadian Aviation March in Ottawa Oct 20th

Hey, to all those that are commenting airlines deserve it, let them fail (or mimicking sentiments along those lines), do you work in the industry? Are you a pilot, flight attendant, ame, or in any other position, that your livelihood depends directly on the well being of airlines? If you are... well...

Re: Civil Aviation Medicine number not getting through

I don't remember which number I called, but it was the one that gave you an option to select a region, and I actually got a hold of them somehow a few months back. When I called, I selected Prairie region and the lady who picked up was the one who actually received my attestation form via email, and...

Re: Westjet slashes Service to Maritimes

I see you poin. But, why doesn't every jurisdiction live in a bubble then? Let's all live in a bubble until there is a cure or the virus 'just disappears'. Cure is under rapid development, yes, but it doesn't mean it will be ready in months regardless of what the media tells us. If it is, how effec...

Re: Westjet slashes Service to Maritimes

WJ and AC should cut all their flights to the maritimes. If they want their “bubble” let them enjoy their bubble. They can drive or take a boat..... You should know 99% of the East Coaster’s I’ve talked to on layovers during this whole pandemic desperately want to keep their bubble. Other than the ...

Re: Betterborders.ca Campaign For Rapid Testing

Form letters to politicians are of little use, as their staffers are adept at making filters to help ignore the "noise". Proper, individually crafted correspondence is a much better option - but via email, it is again of little use; because the MPs public email is handled by a staffer who...

This forum is not a university. Nor is it an in-person interview with an employer. This is an anonymous internet forum. Anybody can post and say almost whatever they want.

Re: What is wrong with the aviation industry?

and frankly, and realistically, it is much easier to get into a big jet in Europe then it is here (or anywhere in the world for that matter) That is not true. The path to a big jet in Europe is much shorter, but there are way fewer paths available. The pilots flying the big jets in Europe might hav...

500 hours & your in a B777 cockpit "your" is not equal to "you're"! I think you missed a few vitally important additional requirements presented in the ad. Remember that thoroughness, and comprehension of details are pretty important aspects of being a pilot. Employers are l...

Re: Trudeau Throne Speech.. any comprehensive support for aviation?

Hmmm, has the airline industry fully reimbursed its passengers that had their flying cancelled? I know in Europe they are required to, at which point the various governments supoorted the airline industry. Real world example of a person I ran into last week. Pre-covid, booked flight for 6500 to Can...
