Re: BETTER HURRY!! THEM PPCs BE EXPIRING!!

tbayav8er, with only 1000 PIC Q400 I would say that most of your pic time is on the Q which would lead me to believe that your younger generation which was very fortunate to walk into a great airline job. Cuddos to you if this is the case, however the down side is that, if that is the case the insur...

Congrats on the mass expansion for Fast Air. Great to see in a time of crisis that some sectors are doing well.

It's almost as if WJ is trying to repeat history. So many have intended to run out of YHM only to slide over to YYZ.

CCAA requires court approval. You can't just declare bankruptcy.

Correct. As I have stated in other threads, I do not for a second believe that any airline would be denied when they are blowing millions per day with zero end in site.

Re: Morningstar

What surprises me the most is two fold: firstly, young pilots entering the industry believe that when you hit 16000 hours with 10K hours heavy turboprop command plus thousands of hours on multiengine sea aircraft that you are automatically employable when the industry tanks and a few job adds start...

Re: Best guess when recalls could happen

Ahh, thanks. Curious, 77 recalls but 600 layoffs. MMM, why would there be recalls in this case? Originally it was 675 layoffs but they were on CEWS, which kept getting an extension, this time though both the company and the union attempted to get clarification on the “new” CEWS so they could make an...

Re: When is Air Transat likely to resume flights

Ya'll need to chill out. Did 320 say fetch a cup of coffee? Yes, right after all the AC guys keep hammering on about how we bring down the industry and that we are nothing. So if you take that as coming for your jobs, than you need to re-read the thread, be open minded about the prospect and how we ...

Re: Chapter 11.

Correct. However I do not believe it would be to hard for any airline to get protection when they show that at current cash flow rates there will be zero cash in 5-6 months.

Re: Air Canada threatening to cut A220 orders....

Agree with everything you say, with the exception of the 87. I believe you will see the 777 gone before the 87 as the 8 is much more efficient to operate in these times. Putting 400 people on a plane to go somewhere right now will be difficult, whereas 260 is much more feasible. Look no further than...

Re: A321neo

Nah with the loads we have, we are usually lower altitudes to start so the faster traffic will over take early on. Once we start to climb up it’s a none issue.

Re: Post-Simulator Quarantine?

A buddy just came back from recurrent in Florida via YYZ. During the questioning the customs officer went to their supervisor in reference to the quarantine as they did not understand. The response was have a good day, your exempt.

The fact he does not have to quarantine surprised me actually.
