Re: What is going on with recalls in Canada?

The problem with Trudope (and others) is the fear of the return to normal. Just look at the US. Under-vaccinated but (mostly) back to normal. Hospitalizations low. Daily death count low. The politicians and health agencies have become accustomed to being the masters of our daily routines. That must...

Re: What is going on with recalls in Canada?

Newsflash....it was always stupid. Well it worked and that is all the vast majority here cared about. However this past couple of weeks has been a gong show with NS and remainder of Atlantic Provinces. For the most part, the maritimes turned themselves in to the ‘Australia’ of Canada. Looks like th...

Re: Best guess when recalls could happen

FWIW - I believe the required line pilots in the bid will come in around 1250. If AC decides that it wants to run Express at maximum capacity, it could be more. The differences between 2022 and 2019 are that AC now has the A220 and MAX to run on routes that had been Express routes. That will have a ...

Re: Best guess when recalls could happen

Wow those are interesting numbers, and gets me a bit optimistic ! Thanks, I hope so too, for my collegues and me. Let’s say 60 of the layoffs decide to never return (i.e. downgraded CA that are not interested in returning to lousy Jazz year 1-5 FO pay). Let’s say Training Department increases by 15...

Re: Best guess when recalls could happen

I have to say that I am puzzeled as to why the MEC thinks there will be more recalls throughout the summer... We've got what, 1400 on property as of July 4th? Anymore recalls would bring almost everybody on board, but with the very realistic math that you present, it's likely that Jazz is staffed f...

Re: Best guess when recalls could happen

Do you think that means they will try to get most if not all pilot current before the next equipment bid? What I gather from the MEC emails is that the company said that training capacity won't affect flight operations and recalls. If the next equipment bid comes with people still inactive, it'll d...

Re: Best guess when recalls could happen

It was a logical conclusion to come to from the following facts. Jazz took over the Embraers from SkyRegional Many SkyRegional pilots were recalled out of order For each SkyRegional pilot recalled out of order, another pilot was recalled (but not necessarily trained) I could very easily be wrong, b...

Re: No pilot recalls until Spring 2023???

Would that not be a scope issue for AC pilots? Essentially, AC is a farming out flying to a third party … that third party is getting the jobs while AC is getting layoffs.. I can’t see Jazz pilots keeping their jobs … ( very sadly) unless I’m wrong.. What a fine mess the government has caused .. AC...

Re: No pilot recalls until Spring 2023???

Jazz is being forced to recall twice as many pilots as they actually need. Because they don't have the ability to train their pilots on the ERJ, they need to recall SkyRegional pilots who are less senior than those at the top of the recall list. For every pilot they recall out of order, they must r...

Re: No pilot recalls until Spring 2023???

Something doesn't add up here. Why is it in America everyone has been recalled and they are back to new hires. They are back to 2019 flying levels. This forecast is longer than covid has even existed and they don't think we will need to recall? I don't buy it. If they don't need all the pilots back...

Re: Best guess when recalls could happen

Damn, few weeks ago it felt like we would see all furloughs back by early 2022.. You will. I see this as nothing more than AC scare tactics to get more concessions. The contract is due correct? There will be 100% employment at Jazz when the required pilots are 1350-1400. As of July 2021, the requir...

Re: "Three possible Transat suitors say they are not interested in acquiring struggling airline"

Stock is up quite a bit over 7-14 days. Something is up.

I wonder if PKP is going to increase his offer?

Will still need much more to stabilize the balance sheet.

Re: Best guess when recalls could happen

AC held a presentation for furloughed pilots only to discuss current state and next steps of the airline. The high-lites were, based on travel demand over the last 15 months they should have laid off more like 1700-1800 pilots rather than only 600. Current travel demand remains only 15% compared to...

Re: Best guess when recalls could happen

Recalls are out of seniority (DOH) due the SKV MOU and the non-DOH Recall List.

Looking at DOH of junior active pilot is not a good indicator of where the next recall will come from.

361 pilots still on layoff/CEWS.

Re: "Three possible Transat suitors say they are not interested in acquiring struggling airline"

Certainly appears from listening to the analyst call that the plan is to focus on being an airline based operation. Smaller operational fleet. Smaller gauge. Increased utilization. Less seasonality. No more subcontracted capacity. Will be interesting to see how that turns out. There will be lots of ...
