Re: Bravo Cargojet Airways.

The diffrence between Cargojet Airways managment and the rest of the industry is the greed, Cargojet Airways managers are not greedy they care about their employees i personaly don't know Cargojet Airways but i'm sure they have a great work atmosphere and it's probably the best employer in Canada. ...

Re: Bravo Cargojet Airways.

Yea, this kid doesn't have a clue what he is talking about. They could have offered 25k and he still would have taken it.

Re: Tired of the Canadian Aviation Industry

How many CDN air carriers are offering $70k or more to a new-hire FO? As mentioned, cargojet has been doing it for the past 5 years (67k) It is wide body. The general international standard for a wide body FO is around $85k USD a year. That is $110k CAD. If you want to compare to AC, sure, the pay ...

Re: Tired of the Canadian Aviation Industry

I see it simply as the law of supply and demand in action. CJ has commitments to its cargo customers and has decided it is not willing to inform customers of cancelled flights/shipments over a lack of crews. Hopefully this same enlightenment and action will occur elsewhere. However, in some local i...

Re: Tired of the Canadian Aviation Industry

This is only 3k above the previous salary for the past five years. The big jump is 1500 TT no jet. For a wide body. It was 4000 TT 1000 Jet. So really just a lowering of requirements.

Re: The End of the WPDL Confirmed

The bypass positions have been awarded and the newly announced Captain positions at Swoop have been filled internally. New FO vacancies will be filled by Encore. Lots of talented people to keep you company Tbaylx. The original OTS pilots who undercut us will be outnumbered by the fall. Your island ...

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

The queue rules are hardly universal and mostly only apply here in North America and some Legacy airlines depending on availability (Qantas were hiring DEC as in 2008-09). We are not talking about the universe. We are talking about the rules here in Canada. In Canada you have labor laws to deal wit...

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

This is not at all a fair comparison and that’s why you don’t get it. No one applied to Swoop because their company folded. You don’t mention that the “other” airline was in a labor dispute. The reason this is an issue is because Swoopsters took advantage of an ongoing labor dispute. Thought not. A...

You think wrong. I know a few of the captains and they were all widebody captains flying overseas for big airlines. Some are even ACPs. I also believe a number may have been captains at AC express feeders.
I said "most" you said "a few". :)

I only know a few ;-)

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

If you are going to make comparisons you could actually make apples to apples ones that made sense. What part of "any Captain positions would have been offered in house before OTS hires" is so tough to comprehend ? Oh and Same pay too. Your attempted comparisons are beyond idiotic. An actual scener...

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

I recall DEC at AC prior to 911 And the question wasn’t how would AC pilots react, the question was, hypothetically of course, would WJ pilots take DEC jobs or would they turn it down because they felt it was morally wrong? According to the morals of most of the people on these threads, if westjet ...

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

I think most of the Swoop OTS guys are career F/Os chasing a left seat and that’s all that matters to them... Captainitis. Tb was an F/O in the sand box, an F/O at Canadian North, and an F/O at Sunwing. Went to the TSB and saw an opportunity for that coveted left seat at Swoop. You think wrong. I k...
