Re: Flairs troubles......

If they bought them outright and now plan on retiring the lot this quickly, that’s gonna be a nasty accelerated depreciation hit on the books. If they had planned to switch to NG’s this quickly in the program, they should have maintained the operational and financial flexibility of operating leases...

ONEX attempted to buy Canadian Airlines in the past. They have a plan. I hope that it works out well for everyone.

Re: Porter Airlines at 55?

A friend of mine interviewed at Porter and they actually did ask him what his age was. When a Chief Pilot asks to see your aviation medical, your age becomes known, so they do not need to ask, therefore there is no opportunity for one to say that they were discriminated against due to their age. Hav...

Re: Morningstar

What’s this “pool” BS. You can’t tell people you have vacancies and then shove them in a pool to hold with other applicants so you can cherry pick when convenient when the time comes. How many of those people would have found jobs by then anyway? You need a vacancy filled? Post an ad with a closing...

I have close to double their requirements and applied recently to an ad and never heard You’re not the only one. This might be a PASCO 2.0 Morningstar has a solid reputation in this industry, so I would doubt that. With all the movement in the industry, it may be good planning to have a pool of qua...

Re: Training Bond Question

Did they pay for the course and you bailed before they could recoup their costs? Most places have a course setup prior to interview, as long as he didn't sign back the job offer or give them money, he should be alright financially. Reputation, depending on how professionally he handled, it is quest...

I don't know this company, but I can't understand what people are complaining about - other than the bond - expecting a 1 year commitment on initial I get, but renewals? Really? Is that true? Anyway, it seems reasonably laid out and a pretty decent job/lifestyle for an up and comer who is probably ...

Actually we block around 85h a month, way more if you want to do overtime... that's almost $39k a year plus $5k in perdiems, just giving you the facts. Captains make around $75k with some making more than a 100k with a crazy amount of overtime. It's not perfect but it's definitely not a pay cut fro...

Re: Air canada wants to challenge outsourcing ruling

This whole thing is ridiculous. Why t is AC the only airline that is legally required to do their maintence etc at specific bases? Everyone else can outsource if they want. The Act is outdated and should be cancelled. Yes, I agree. In fact, to make Air Canada more cost competitive, they should be a...
