Re: Sced

I’m NB FO mainline... maybe 14 days a month. I commute across the country (by choice) so those 14 days really don’t feel like 14 off. I bid pairings to have overnights in my domicile. They aren’t quality overnights, but they help. It’s a grind some days, but.... it is what it is. I’m also quit junio...

I've applied to the position a couple of times and received a message saying that I would be receiving a confirmation email. I've checked my spam and every other mailbox but this email has never arrived. Has anyone else experienced this? Yes. When this happened to me, I waited 9 months and decided ...

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

So reading between the lines,with the next couple courses being mostly Express, and two GS’s slotted after June 10 (July and Aug), it could be potentially closer to the beginning of fall for some of us?

Hunker down fellas! :)

PFO email received, 6 weeks and a few days after the interview.
Sorry to hear that MP. I hit 6 weeks recently and I even checked my junk mail for the PFO. Don’t see anything. Starting to feel like this isn’t gonna workout in my favour. :?

Good luck to everyone else.

Re: Exit Polls Showing Over 90% Strike Mandate Support

I’m a little confused. Where is/was this exit poll? Did I miss something?

I thought you were referring to previous survey results and not the current ballot.

That’s great news, if exit polls can be trusted. Think no further than the US election.

Hope this holds up.

Re: American Express credit card w/lounge access?

I was advised this morning in YYZ that AMEX now requires a boarding pass to enter the lounge as Feb. 20th. Doesn’t matter if you’re operating and have the card.

Talked to a FA in the lounge and she already cancelled her card. Looks like the sweet rides over!

Re: 7F and 5T Codesharing flights.

So... Canadian North and First Air are back competing on YOW-YFB.

That was fun while it lasted.
Are you foreshadowing with your handle?

4 different airlines flying on behalf of 7F: Calm, Summit, Flair, Canadian. Yummy.

Im sure the flying public is as confused as I am.

The internal bids haven't been awarded yet, they closed on the 10th. I'm sure once that's posted (they know the hiring numbers) the calls will be made.

Re: Canadian North Nov job ad

As far as I know the ground school is on right now. 6 Boeing and 4 Dash.

I'd be curious to know the type of experience in the ground school because I know guys with 3500+ hrs and jet time who applied and didn't even receive a call.
