Re: American Express Platinum card: Benefits vs Cost

is there a visa giving access to the lounge ?
I know you can with some mastercard.
the advantage of visa over amex is you can pay absolutely anything anywhere.

Re: Westjet F/A Sues Over Sexual Assault by Pilot

As it often happens in aviation's culture, the victim is considered guilty and speaking out will have you fired.

Re: C series

60% discount and charges concerning AVEOS were dropped.
smart move from AC and you can be pretty sure that Bombardier and the Qc gov representatives were begging for a deal at any price.

Re: Turbulent times for WJ ahead?

what's funny is how all of a sudden people listen when they're being told who's the poster. the same posters were mocking Rcheck's post before that.
what's freaking out is that who is still able to distinguish rant from sound knowledge on this forum ?

Re: Disparity between mainline and regional

flying is a profession and for this reason it's legitimate for a pilot to expect being compensated like a professional, from whom an airline expect to train, qualify and develop efforts to remain current. As well as all the ops duties coming with it... Regional airlines are not offering this compens...

Re: Whither the economy?

bank of canada's governor said a rate raise is not in the pipe but rather a downgrading to negative rates. which is not announcing a dynamic economy or investments or even consuming. it means putting your money at the bank will cost you, instead of receiving your interest rate share.

the way you can see it is they want to make sure you'll be able to read and understand company's manuals, aircraft's manuals, that studying for a type rating won't be an unreachable intellectual challenge, and in the end, that you'll be able to write a report with sentences that make sense.
