Re: DOH merge.

The ACPA should just buy Air Transat. It would only be like $150k per person.

Re: AC offer AT $13 per share

What about the fact that AC has a file on the vast majority of AT pilot because they applied there and were not chosen to be hired. These pilot that were deem not acceptable at the time are suddenly going to be given no interview job at AC, something not even AC Express get?

Re: DOH merge.

I think everyone is getting worked up over nothing. I don't think they will merge the company. At least not with Mainline. Maybe with Rouge but that was a risk they took when they left Mainline for Rouge so they can not cry foul too much about that.

Re: AC offer AT $13 per share

Probably nothing since an equal number of new aircraft and new pilot are being brought onboard. They are still short of many hundred of pilot.

No grandfathering, no re-voting. You lost. Brexit did not pass because people were tricked. Trump did not win because of Russia collusion. Why can modern liberal-type not accept the result of a vote?

Re: WestJet to be sold in friendly deal to Onex Corp. for $5 billion

It is not as easy to start an international widebody airline as people here think when most major airport are operating at maximum capacity. If they want to majorly expand I think it will be vacation destination type stuff as a ULCC not play with the big boy.

Re: Profit Sharing this April ?

Why would it be based on a percentage of your salary? Did they lower paid pilot make the company less profit? If anything they made them more by costing them less.

You are not allowed to fly on the ragged edge. Too risky. Better to hit the ground.

Personally I would not fly an aircraft with such a system. Too risky.

Re: 737 max

Company has what 500 MAX pilot out of 4000? So worst case scenario all those position were eliminated you would need around seniority 3500 to have a spot still. This will not happen though. There are too many empty position to fill up.

I don't know how we got in this situation where pilot only get paid if the airline is profitable. It is not real salary.

Re: Cannabis Policy ???

No making something illegal for only part of the population is the definition of discrimination.
I also laugh at AC policy to strictly all social drug but alcohol. I wonder how many smoking a cigarette or drinking a coffee realize they violate that policy.
