Only those who have been with the company a long while will understand, its not only an economic decision, but one of optics as well. If one FA is put out on the street, other employee groups will follow suit. Watch. While I don’t doubt their will be layoffs in other departments including pilots. O...

AC isn't going to be laying anyone off.

Mark my words, they will try to get senior pilots to take ERP packages long before they start laying off the cheapest pilots they have on staff.
Delta is cutting 40% capacity i think we are headed for layoffs

Things probably are going to change. We will most likely find out in the next 2-4 week regarding future hiring. Don't see layoffs but could definitely see a hiring freeze.

Re: When do you think the 737 MAX will return to operation at Air Canada?
