Re: Cargo TA

Europe is crumbling and no one wants to venture there. Canadian industries are being hit harder and households cannot afford the visit the folks in the old country. You may be living in a bunker at the moment, but for info all TS flights to Paris are full in december, people are travelling to Europ...

Re: Cargo TA

If you were a nice guy I might be sympathetic to your jeuevenile tantrums. When you find time away from your video games take a look at the situation in the EU. They have every right to reject the the proposal as it stands now. Europe is crumbling and no one wants to venture there. Canadian industr...

Re: Cargo TA

Anyway it’s all contingent on the EU approval. I’m sure our former Prez will be trying to block it for the benefit of AF. EU will approve the deal as AC just submitted concessions to make it happen. At the end EU will never prevent a transaction between 2 Canadian companies. As AT shareholders will...

ALPA CBA too; so they should be on the same page.

Re: Cargo TA

The merged group of approx 4800 will have around 3500-4000 jobs to fight over. Perhaps. Not sure about AC, but any TS pilot deemed a surplus in those numbers has a 10 year recall period I believe? Nobody will be jobless because of this merger. A few things to consider. Those 4800 pilots inside of 3...

Re: Cargo TA

I'm not familiar with the details of this TA, but it seems like it's a concession in order to diversify flying? My question is, how long is the agreement good for? In a couple years tops the industry will be back to normal growth, but will pilots still be laboring under the terms of this TA, made i...

Re: Swoop alum

As a couple others have stated. This can easily be any of the thousands living off CEWS or EI from any of the 705/704 etc. So what if they pursue this van lifestyle, many are moving towards the mini-homes due to prices of houses and the lack of pay. As another poster stated, most of the original Sw...

Re: New Protest to Save Canadian Aviation

The 14 day quarantine is preventing people from flying. Why are US airlines bleeding? Why are European airlines bleeding? Emirates is flying DXB to LHR basically empty. No quarantine restriction in the US, Europe, or Middle east but still these airlines are burning millions per day. Ending the 14 d...

Re: New Protest to Save Canadian Aviation

I’m working 5 days a month on average. I don’t know why the public should give money to organizations with a workforce that has basically three times as many pilots as it needs. That’s a tough sell. I also don’t see how the public should give money to corporations that don’t have a plan for profita...

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

What is the wording on the percentage of Transat flying conducted by Air Transat in your scope? As was pointed out also, a not insignificant part of Transat AT flying was done by other airlines, not Air Transat... Westjet, Canjet, German wet leases, TFWs, etc... how does that work? I'm also curious...

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.

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

I don't see an attitude that thinks they're better, I see an attitude that doesn't acknowledge a reasonably good deal for them at the cost of the other guys. Just curious: You -as B737max pilot- do you acknowledge a reasonably good deal at the cost of the other guys -your junior colleagues on other...

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

I know it will please some of you here but my thoughts are for our colleagues (pilots) that are about to lose their job -again!- before Christmas; thanks to Air Canada (my own conclusion).

Did any AC pilots get the Coles notes with what Calin said . I have them but I'm not posting the screen shot. I'll start by saying it was very specific its not the same as Canadian and AC merging because an acquisition is a takeover. Arirelle said "it's an ACQUISITION." He outlined Quote ...

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

If you dont think time spent in the regional market, be it Jazz, sky or Georgian won't have a certain weight in the artibrator's decision, you are out to lunch. Time in the regional effects almost 2 000 pilots at AC. Great so all the years I spent at Jazz (like MANY Transat pilots) will be a benefi...
