I've heard total layoff, including the current layoff, will total 1500 pilots next few months.

Could be a quick recall for the uppermost most layoffs though.
I heard 10,000. :smt120

Re: Lufthansa May file for bankruptcy

It’s a business who’s goal is to make money!
You're right, it is a business. Stop pretending like the airlines are a socialized state entity... only when things are bad, of course.

Re: Lufthansa May file for bankruptcy

The general public has seen airline profits increase while their legroom has decreased, and while they've had to fork over additional cash for baggage fees, fuel surcharges and meals. The general public is quasi aware of the shenanigans the current duopoly in Canada has been pulling. They are oppose...

Seniority: WestJet/Swoop are common employer, you would be BOTL. Encore seniority currently does not factor on WestJet lists ( hopefully fixed soon ) This should be the single biggest concern for anyone considering going to WestJet "OTS", by far! Huge dice roll.

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

When are passengers going to want to get back on that plane? That's the real question. As someone else said, by the time the plane returns to service people will have moved on to the next Facebook crisis. Also if the airlines make Max seats $25 cheaper than other types they’ll fill the plane Swoop ...

Company's last 2 quarterly statements said slowing global demand for shipments. Less shipping very likely means fewer aircraft needed.

Would 4G negative be possible to achieve, even instantaneously? A loaded 767 is a lot of mass to make change its velocity that quickly by diving, isn't it?
