Re: Sunwing declares profits of 71 million last year

Incidentally, I well remember being a wide body Captain and being out of work due to an airline failure...only to see in the following year the same passengers being flown by a foreign carrier which was code sharing with Air Transat. Was very demoralizing to be on EI and see the work go overseas. A...

Gladly when our "aviation hero" finally admits its really always been about Transat vs. Sunwing.

Gilles, Just watch us! I've seen enough. The amateur videos made in Piche's basement was the icing on the cake.

If Transat...oh lets see how should I put it......plans to 'utilize' foreign crews......will you continue to publicly take up the foreign pilot fight? Will we see you petition against your own company on Parliament hill? Will you now include Air Transat as one of the culprits in your emails to Trans...

Take whatever you read on this website with a grain of salt. You dont necessarily have to go North to get your start. You're kind of limited in the GTA but one company you might consider is Air Georgian. They hire from their dispatch/office onto the 1900. You could also instruct part time and work a...

Since information from Sunwing, CanJet, xSkyService, WestJet ect is easily available can someone from Transat answer (with hard facts) as too how many ENGLISH ONLY pilots they have hired in their history? Will you not deny the fact that Transat has a history of only hiring Quebecers? Does being heav...

Breaking News: Air Transat Pays PILOT to fight competition

So the old thread got pulled. I guess it kinda sucks when the truth comes out. Fine, slap on the wrist. No more personal attacks. Pilots are smart people but lousy detectives. So TRANSAT has been compensating a certain pilot to fight this battle. Are they spying on the competition as well? Wow this ...

Oh Gillian, It's funny how no one here has mentioned the fact that up until a few years ago it was close to impossible to get hired by Transat unless you were a French speaking Quebecor. I can count 3 jet qualified guys off the top of my head that were passed over for less qualified Quebec residing ...

Re: Temporary Seasonal pilots. The big lie at Sunwing

tail gunner you seem like you would be a real peach to work with. instead of worrying about jumpseaters and 20 some odd contractors at Sunwing, you should be focusing on your own airline which has a whole heap load of issues.

Tailgunner,

Easy there Capt Kirk. Denying "MYJumpseat" to a fellow Canadian pilot (who has no say in company policy btw) who is just trying to earn a living flying a jet like everyone else......that's just a real shame. I hope I never share a flight deck with someone like you.
