Re: New Bottom Feeder's

Yes but out of the two, who can we actually influence to make change? Our "CEOs" or fellow pilots. Sure it's the uppers fault but it's also our own for letting it get there. Personally though I wouldn't go as far as calling them bottom feeders, we have no idea that person's situation. May have 3 ki...

When does the new guy start?
She and the other dispatchers are already on the property with in house dispatch going live in the next month or two.

You mean on top of the 20 something recalled for last month?
Yes, perhaps not all but one more round of recalls this year is possible.

Re: Westjet mask policy

You're all missing the point. It's irrelevant whether masks are effective or not. Same as it was irrelevant after 9/11 whether taking a crew's razors made aviation safer or not. The point is the public perception of wearing masks makes them feel safer and more likely to return to flying. It could be...

Re: Airlines need to shut down to survive

Gilles couldn’t be more correct. Every airline is at risk right now. There’s no help from the government. There’s no plans to open the border and create safe travel corridors. If you think your safe at AC I’d think again. No one is. Why do you think they raised capital? Nothing coming in, lots goin...

yeah, that'll fix it. IF only aircanada could operate the middle east runs with no competition that would solve everyone's issues.

Re: Travel starting to come back?

I have many close friends at SWG I don't want the airline to go anywhere. We don't have the aircraft availability to do any charter work right now, though it was good to get a few charters in the spring, it was never a saving grace. Our focus is domestic sched service, not charter or vacation work....

Re: Travel starting to come back?

I don’t know if I’d consider it a win for the sunwing pilots. With the decimation of the travel/hospitality industry the Sunwing group has/is obviously going to be looking at major cost reductions, while Air Canada is going to be very open to any negotiations that could lead to additional business....

Re: Porter Airlines shifts restart of flights date to June 29

October 31st now. Starting to wonder if any airlines or airports are going to make it through this without CCAA. Canadian Governments need to start opening up all interprovincial travel and selected international safe travel corridors if they aren't going to provide any sort of airline aid like the ...

Re: How to Move Forward

I'd go get an AZ license and drive trucks. It will bring in income, it's always going to be in demand (especially now) until they automate it and instead of spending another $10K on flying you'll be getting ahead financially. Then you have a backup for the next time this happens 10 ish years down th...

Re: P180 job ad: "don't apply"

I have never understood this philosophy. The vast majority of the pilot population have no desire to stay 703 for their entire career. Both candidates in this scenario will leave. The only difference is the laid off major/regional pilot knows where they are going to leave to. Make them sign a bond ...

The universal income would be a net benefit to us all, if it can do anything at all to stop the social problems (and COSTS associated) we have these days. The...
