Re: WestJet Group Hiring Freeze

No delusion here buddy. You Westjet cheerleaders keep your heads in the sand. The mother of all financial crisis is knocking at the door. Onex is a big player and they will liquidate Westjet faster than you can wrap your head around that fact. Have fun. Once this virus pandemic has run it's course w...

Re: Recession incoming

Here is the funny part: There is no more stimulus. Europe shot it's wad some time ago introducing negative interest rates. They are toast. The EU is going to splinter and the Euro is going away. Good luck over there. Here we have no leader and the C dollar is being beaten on the head with a big stic...

Re: Is Air North reliable?

If you want to be sure you are going to get somewhere look elsewhere. If you want decent in flight service (but no entertainment service of any kind) and don't mind being stranded somewhere for no reason and no backup aircraft available to pick up the slack go for it.

Re: Top Paid AMEs

Wow rwm1273 you must be a superhero. According to your numbers you work +/- 5,000 hours a year. There are 8760 hours in one year. Bravo.If you sleep 8 hours a day that is 2,920 hours a year. Which leaves you 2.3 hrs a day to eat and whatever else you do with your life. Awesome.

Re: Bonds

Don't sign. If the company wants you bad enough they will drop the requirement. If you already work for them and they insist you sign a bond to stay employed make sure you have a witness. And take them to court when they try to collect. You will probably win. Air Canada, Canadian North, Cargo Jet, T...

Re: AirTransat: for sale-Blue-rouge...?

If Transat winds up being sold what do you think happens to Air Transat?? The only reason Air Transat exists is to service Transat. Think about that. Nothing lasts forever, especially in the Canadian aviation world.

Re: TSB deploys a team of investigators to a landing incident at the Calgary International Airport, Alberta

You always torque an aircrat wheel onto the axle. First is a higher torque to seat the bearings and then back off the nut. Then you retorque to a lower number as per the manual. Don't know what this guy is talking about when he says you never torque a wheel. Never been around large aircraft obviously.

Re: Profit Sharing this April ?

This is an amusing post I must say. Canadian dollar recovery? We are only in the early stages of the Canadian dollar sinking in relation to the USD. It will be dramatic. What is going to prop it up? We sold all our gold reserves and are alienating our major trade partners. Inflation rates? Those mus...

Re: Boeing Tumbles on Grand Jury Subpoena Probing 737 MAX Approval

Boeing is hooped on this one. They all took it just a little too far. Boeing share price is going to take a beating, they are open for multiple major lawsuits and Airbus will feast on it. As will the Chinese. Just watch. What is at stake here is not the fact that training will be improved, MCAS can ...

Re: WJ still flying the 737MAX on Flight aware 16/3/19?

They do not have all the rights to ferry an aircraft for maintenance. They have to apply to TC for that specific aircraft for that specific flight and be able to prove that the aircraft is in an airworthy state. Interesting conversation knowing the present ststus of the Max.

Re: Are we entering another recession?

Short answer is yes. Who cares what all the "experts" say. Look at the situation around you. Everything is peaking or has already peaked. 2019 will be the beginning of a recession in Canada and probably 2020 for the USA. Europe is already in a recession.
