Re: GreenPeace enters the aircraft painting business

I have it on good authority that that paint is a petroleum product and the perpetrators filled up their Peugot on the way to the airport.

Climate terrorists and hypocrites.

Re: I'm suing ACPA and Philippe Gauthier

But you seem to sure that « AC didn’t need any contractual changes to make this freighter operation work ». So If that is true, then why (its a question back to you Fan Blade) did the ACPA MEC not tell the company just what you said ? Something like staying in our lane. What threat do you think AC ...

Re: I'm suing ACPA and Philippe Gauthier

The company doesn't want ALPA represented Pilots. That alone says to me that it would be a better direction.

Better governance structure, better support, seat at the big table.

ACPA had its day, the problems are systemic and it needs to be put down.

Re: I'm suing ACPA and Philippe Gauthier

Now the management shill... Your circle logic doesn't stand. We own ALL AC flying - full stop. Throw all the words in there you want it comes back to that simple premise. We allow some CPA flying and code share under our contract when stipulations are met, but it's still our flying. ALL CARGO FLYING...

Re: Air Canada Hires Influencers Promoting Travel Amid Non-Essential travel Ban

You guys should just block and ignore... and stop quoting, it pains me to see the drivel.

Do it now, click the name, them click "add foe" and the posts go away.

Re: TC Letters

You won't have a problem. Did the CAME sign your medical? You're good. You have a healthy BP. Transport called me once about taking about more tests. I told him that he had bad information, that my medical was signed off, and I wasn't doing any more tests. I never heard from them again - that's abou...

Re: Air Canada Revises the Terms of its Capacity Purchase Agreement with Chorus Aviation for Regional Flying

There’s going to be winners and losers in any consolidation and I don’t see why the Jazz pilots have to volunteer to be the losers unless there are major tangible gains to their 17 year contract Bingo. You can either play or get played. Did anybody notice some of the broader gains that ACPA achieve...

Re: TSB Investigation - Canadian Approach Minimums

So do that then. Have the airport authority properly properly equip the runway. Or *gasp* put in a CAT 2... Instead they spend money on art installations and vanity projects and put the onus on us to try to keep the operations going and land in below charted conditions at their poorly equipped airpo...

It would be easier if we just used charted visibility.

Re: AC/TRZ Transaction Approved by TC - $5 per Share

Talking pre-pandemic here, I have no way of believing that a strategic long-term reduction of capacity is in any company's business plan when the products are profitable. Let's look a couple of years down the road, as it would be comparable to pre-pandemic. TS had high loads for Transatlantic flyin...

Sharklasers, I have no idea where you're getting those speculative numbers from, if you can support them I'd be interested, but IMO your perspective is flawed resulting in those estimates. First off, TS only has 600 pilots. We've lost a bunch in early retirement, but that's beside the point. Second...

We agree to disagree man .. I’ve never been unsupportive of how you “feel” (snowflake! Kidding), I’ve been trying to add another perspective and felt you were demonizing another pilot group for decisions they have no control over. Like others have said, this deal may never materialize and we’ve was...
