Re: The Avcanada COVID Employment Poll

Close! Felt like I was checking NOTAMS. :lol:

I answered with what I copied. I think that's the closest to my situation and represents the spirit of the poll.

I will be laid off. I will get a temporary non-aviation job. I want to return to my pilot job (recall).

Re: TSX: CHR, AC, EIF, ONEX

I did well with WJ before the ONEX purchase. If ONEX paid a higher dividend, I'd probably let some pesos ride with them. I worked at an EIF company years ago and made enough in my RRSP from contributions/dividends for the first time home buyers plan and subsequently sold most of my shares. I have AC...

Re: 79 Airplanes Retired

Based on this news, how much more downsizing can be expected at AC Express going forward? There was no future fleet plan provided in the Management Discussion and Analysts. Which is unusual. The 79 fins getting parked are just the sum of aircraft that are older. IOW it appears like that is the numb...

Re: YWG Base

Only aircraft based in YWG is the 320. As of late, there’s been unbid spots in YWG for FO on the last couple bids.

Wouldn’t take to long to get there, if that’s why your asking.

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! :)

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!
