Re: Swoop OTP

Pat Ward and Emily Rae say they were scheduled to come home to Winnipeg Monday but found out their flight had been cancelled after a truck hit their airplane, damaging a propeller.

Re: Coffee in a Thermos and security

In Canada and in most countries, no problem working/dhing/commuting in uniform. In the UK, it's a problem. Thanks, that's what I figured... Leave it at home for the UK layovers. May I recommend something like this. https://www.sportchek.ca/product/gsi-commuter-javapress-blue-331810657.html?gclsrc=a...

Coffee in a Thermos and security

Getting really sick of the on board coffee and I'm looking at taking my own Thermos to bring my own coffee with me. I have a 1.9L Stanley, so it's a little on the large side and completely metal. Anyone have any problems with security, specifically internationally?

Well if we are counting 703-705-AC then yes I came from 703 to AC.
Just to clarify I was flying “705 Bush Cargo” then went back to 703 MEDEVAC then AC.
So you had 705 time.
Exactly.

Re: King Air at Gillam, MB

This got me thinking. If they were going YWG-YYQ, why didn’t they at some point say “Oh @#$!, we’re low on gas.” Divert to YTH which is on the way, get some gas then sheepishly explain their mistake to company.

Yep still waiting also. 4 weeks today
If you’ve passed the 4 week mark after interviewing that’s usually a good sign.
Folks have been rejected after 3 months and accepted after 3 and 1/2
Hence why I said usually.

Re: Ramp Wait Times

Should be no reason to take a ramp spot right now with how things are going. That being said if you have bills to pay and mouths to feed I wouldn’t except anything with a wait time of more than 3-4 months.

Re: New Livery

At first I thought this was a joke or someone misinformed. The livery looks like it would be some African carrier that just so happens to have the same name and someone snapped a picture of it. Not sure what they’re thinking unless it’s to get people talking about it.

Re: Why does everyone want to work at Air Canada?

A big draw for me that the others don’t offer is a wide variety of flying. Want to fly a 777 on long haul flights all over the world? AC offers that. Want to fly more domestic routes on a narrow-body? AC offers that. Want to do “vacation” flying down to the Caribbean? AC offers that.
