It was mentioned that there will be a jumpseat program soon and other airline travel benefits.

Flair has an internal travel policy as well so you should be able to commute to work - though it will always be standby.

Also, they announced last week that every year the employee and their immediate family will receive one confirmed seat to be used anywhere Flair flies.

We bid for schedules in the traditional way so there is no pattern. YOu are guaranteed 12 days off a month and a max schedule of 85 hours. So if you hit 85 hours in 15-16 days you will have13-15 days off. No grey days etc - they are off days. SO you can request specific days off, specific flight etc as in any bidding system.
Thanks Soyer,

Can you bid those 12 days off to be consecutive ?

Not sure about that. I doubt it since there are legal day off requirements but you could probably get pretty close. Would also depend on base and the type of flying from that base. Lots of variables.

I believe you're thinking of Swoop. Flair pilots improved their situation substantially.

Hi everyone,

Do you know if Flair is planning to open a base in Winnipeg? Is the schedule commutable? Is it possible to have multiple days pairing followed by few days off for example?

Thanks for your infos!

Or, given that they did NOT ask for a 30% pay decrease. Instead they want to hire new FA's on a scale that matches, Swoop, Rouge etc. Current FA's keep there wages - wages that were based on a charter company years ago.
So in essence this means the FAs are being asked to accept a B-Scale for new hires based on Swoop/Rouge rates which is 30% lower than the current pay scale? Not surprised the Flair FAs are threatening to strike.

It seems like as per the Collective Agreement, Flair pilots are seeing a substantial raise for 2018-2019. Improving working conditions for the pilot group while asking for concessions from the FAs is bound to cause some hard feelings - I’m not seeing the logic behind this.
I think the logic is very straightforward. The current FA wages were implemented when the company was private charter. As it was bought out and then morphed into a low cost sked airline that payscale is not competitive. Those FA's who started then and are still here will keep their current scale and will become IFD's quickly as the company grows. At the same time their working conditions will improve greatly as their contract follows the work rules that the pilots have.

In any case, Flair is contacting pilots for interviews in early December.
Has there been any word on what the start dates may be for pilots?
