With the merger, could some of the TS flights be operated by AC aircraft...?
Nobody knows what’s gonna happen so don’t expect any serious info until next summer - at least.

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

Best bet for OTS applicant now is apply at Transat and failing that Jazz. Calling Transat ‘best’ right now is a bit of a gamble, no? I’d have thought the surest thing would remain Jazz, as it has been for at least the last decade from what I’ve seen. Like Jean Pierre said it’s the best bet - but st...

Re: Westjet v. Jazz

There’s been many many that have left Jazz for Westjet and I’d be shocked if any went the other way. There’s a reason for that, in fact many have left Jazz for Transat, sunwing, westjet, cargojet, Morningstar and many more. If your true goal is AC, honestly Westjet would probably get you there fast...

Re: Thomas Cook Effect

The powers that be will certainly be scrambling today to figure out plan B. Hopefully with so much uncertainty the past year, they had a clause with the lessor that still allows the AC to come over for the winter months. If not, you might see the 330 flying some more this winter. We will see what A...

Re: Future of Canada's Airline Industry

You need to ask yourself a serious set of questions. Do you want to make money? Do you want to have a family? Do you want to have a social life? Do you want to be able to make your own choices? If you have answered yes to any of these, you should consider banking. The aviation industry is booming r...

Re: ALPA blows off ACPA? Or ACPA blows off ALPA?

Pardon my ignorance, but how is your seniority defined? From your Collective agreement 4.01.01 it looks like it is based on the date of employment (and before Nov 2010 it’s from date of remuneration). A merge DOH could work I guess? On a side note, during the last days at the employee buses some sen...

Re: DOH merge.

If only AC is allowed to buy Transat can they take back the $18 offer? :lol: AC lawyers were also with Transat at the court knowing since friday that Mach’s plan wouldn’t be approved by the AMF. I guess AC offered 18$ for more reasons than just the Mach thing. By the end of the month we should also...

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

That they come with their fleet may be the case, but TS pilots bring less than they believe. The 310’s and 737 will never set foot at AC.... The last A310 flight at Transat will be April 2020 (funny it’s now coordinated with the acquisition timelines) and the 737s will be progressively leaving (but...

Re: DOH merge.

You aren’t factoring in AT retirements into your equation. Senior AT guys will retire by the time you bid WB Captain so there won’t be 500 ahead of you any more. If we are lucky enough to actually add 20 330s to the existing fleet (net +20 fins) and if they were actually crewed at 15:1 (usually clo...

I object to your false analogy. I don't want AC to acquire Transat. Period. Status quo, Mach, Onex, I don't care. But not AC. I made no inference on the balance of your fallacy.
