Re: One List

Anonymous person with second hand info on a public forum is telling me I’m wrong than it must be true. Oops my bad, I guess everything I’ve seen first hand must be less true than what your “Westjet/Encore buds” tell you. My bad I’ll change my opinion and side with strato right away. I'm didn't say ...

Re: One List

I've got no troops in this battle, but from what I gathered from my WestJet/Encore buds - and personal opinion - I tend to agree with Strato on this one. I don't think Strato is upset personally with the WestJet guys as much as he is upset with the hypocrisy coming from all the stakeholders (ALPA, c...

Re: One List

Maybe chat to your mechanics a bit more. Encore and WestJet's AMOs are due to be completely 'merged' by May 2020. Encore AMEs will make same as WestJet AMEs by the same timeframe. If Onex was interested in selling they would have stopped this process long ago. Pretty hard to sell an operation like E...

Again. You know typically AMEs don't go through CATSA? Yes they do. I go through non-passenger screening multiple times every day (need a special tool/parts/wheels/consumables from the hangar/shed). All the major airports have a vehicle and personnel screening point before entering the ramp. It's a...

It’d be nice if every employee at every company in the world got a raise when revenue is high but that’s obviously not how the world works. You’re a dummy if you think otherwise.

The way I read it is WJ shuttling the West to Minneapolis then jumping off to Europe/Asia on Delta widebodies. Kinda puts a dampener on this supposed WJ widebody growth?
