Re: Bankruptcy.

can you elaborate? your sources? Transat has a deal on the table from PKP that will likely save them. Wasn’t the deal from PKP for 5$ a share within 24 hours of cancellation of the Air Canada deal. Given the fact it’s been several days and a deal with PKP has not been announced, perhaps that offer ...

Re: Flair Summer Expansion

Yeah? Aren't they burning what, $15M+ a day? Don't think they can afford to burn more to push anyone out. Why didn't they force WJ out of business in 95? Bruh, aren't they like, Canada's second largest airline now? :rolleyes: Flair may succeed with some on this expansion, but if you don’t think tha...

Re: More WJ layoffs

And yet MOA 1 was not voted on. This is undeniable proof that a vote is not mandatory. The MEC alone decides if an offer from the company will be brought to the membership for ratification. Otherwise, the Company will just submit lowball offer after lowball offer and if the majority are getting lai...

Re: Encore Recalls

So what will all the bump down pilots do? Sit at home and not get trained? PTA promises them a job at Encore... it doesn’t promise an expedient training. Far far far cheaper to have them sitting at home doing nothing at any Encore wage than what they would be making on a reduced block had MOA4 pass...

Re: More WJ layoffs

Why not just say what happened? I never understood the psychology behind these cryptic social media posters. Is it about attention? Without knowing what the information to come is, perhaps the reason for being cryptic is for fear of repercussions for spreading said news on a public forum. Westjet h...

Doesn’t look like the last offer had ESP?
Does the current MOA have ESP?
No it did not. The last offer did have block hour triggers (percentages based on 2019 hours) that would provide WSP at different levels.

Re: More WJ layoffs

Nobody's simmering dude. I'm just stating the facts. its easy to pretend that Encore doesn't exist and that position reductions at mainline = joining the bread line but that's just not true. And yes people certainly have every right to choose being unemployed over taking a downgrade to Encore. But ...

Re: More WJ layoffs

Nobody’s going on the street from this round that didn’t choose to go there. Everybody at mainline had the option to bump down to Encore. Most are doing exactly that. Encore is growing its pilot numbers to absorb them and growing further to recall a handful of laid off pilots from the last reductio...

Not really 415 less pilots....those that wanted to will be absorbed into Encore. Yes they're getting a paycut but frankly nobody's losing employment and in fact some Encore furloughs are getting recalled even with all this happening. Company will carry the pilots at Encore for less pay rather than ...
