Re: Save Canadian Aviation March in Ottawa Oct 20th

twa22 Actually, I wasn’t thinking about your post specifically. But, I do agree with what you’re saying. We know passenger cabins are extremely safe due to the AC/Press Systems. In fact, there are only 44 confirmed COVID cases among 1 point something million passengers carried worldwide since this ...

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Updated Purchase Price at $5 per share

We got a memo from the union about it; and all domestic flights suddenly showed 0 pax in our system although they were showing 75% full. No more info. Hence my question? Is there any provision in the CBA pertaining to transat passengers flown on transat metal? Welcome to Air Canada. You'll quickly ...

Re: Rouge is back?

Yes, but it's a flat bid. They are reducing the mainline bus while adding the Rouge spots. There is no increase in available seats, so everyone identified as surplus/furlough stay there.

Ray, I respect what you did then and thank your for your service. There were and still are some people within the halls that are doing or trying to do some good work. Unfortunately the ACPA you knew is no longer the ACPA apparently serving the members. It has grown into an incredibly siloed organiza...

It's not that Bombardier is receiving anything, it's that the airframes are still being built in Quebec.

Re: Government aid is comming for the airlines

All the more reason to force an election and turf the current disgrace that is our leader and controlling party. I don't see a point. JT has bought so many votes I doubt he'd be unseated. If you made at least 5k last year you're potentially eligible for 2k a month from CERB. Who wouldn't vote for m...

Re: Terrible news for the Air Canada work force...

Does every thread have to turn into a pissing match between you two? It's pretty clear you are both so far dug in that nothing will change your minds.

There's a PM function, try it and stop using every thread to argue with each other.

Re: 79 Airplanes Retired

Something will be published later today. Those numbers is what I heard as well. Over 600 surplus. Close to 1600 reductions from the last bid After CEWS expires, Skyregional will lay off around 75%. Jazz will lay off 50% (and that may not be the end of layoffs). 600/4200 active is 14%. If these numb...

Turn down your thermostat at night. Ours is set to 68 at night and likely could go lower. Buy bulk if you can and don't buy outside of a flyer. Also buy what's in season. When you're driving accelerate less aggressively and drive at a more economical speed. Consolidate investment and banking account...

I just got an email about a job posting from Jazz. I assume they have put the ad back up now.
