Re: Casablanca

Apparently money is being made, the route is being switched to mainline.

As for the destination, been once, and that was good enough for me.

Re: Equipment by base

The rouge planes technically, as they do not have reserve, period.
Fastest movement at mainline would be at the junior positions in Toronto, ie. All RP spots and narrow body FO.

Re: I heard there were direct entry ERJ Captains?

Yes. True, at mainline. The last equipment bid had open spots for EMJ captain. The thing is, a new hire will only get to pick from the positions made available during the groundschool, which would likely never include the captain spot. The new hire could bid to EMJ captain on the next possible equip...

Re: WestJet flights to London prompting a wave of complaints

Whoa..hold on a sec.

The pilot exits the cockpit while a flight attendant stays in the flight deck for the duration of the controlled rest period?

Re: Ex pilot sues Westjet

Also, what are his chances of getting another airline flying job here in Canada.
I'm guessing that after his settlement he won't need to worry about it.

First two are scheduled to arrive at the very end of 2017. Realistically I'd call it 2018 for an official start.

Re: Air Canada Pool

In hiring news:
3 x 20 before the end of 2015. Total 170-190 new hires by summer 2016.

One would think that should flush the pool.

Re: B787

Is the crew rest area more or less comfortable than the 777
Had a peek in. Can't vouch for comfort. The beds are there but there's only one chair which didn't look as good . Beats the 767 and 330 though.

Re: Air Canada Pool

Let's clarify something here. Between this page and the Jazz forum, we're getting dozens of new aircraft yesterday, and the hiring of thousands of pilots is imminent. Here's the deal: There is evidence of maybe 1 (one) newish A320, which may replace an existing aircraft for all we know. The company ...

Re: Air Canada Pool

Oh please, and those captains also get a quarter million dollar wage top up. They also would have passed on other opportunities to flow through to AC over those twenty years, which clearly weren't rich enough. No tears of pity there.

Re: New CPA and flowthrough to Air Canada?

I heard 700 new hires and 500 retirements in the next 10 years at AC. These are rough figures, so if I'm wrong please do correct me.
That does not add up to 1200 new hires. Still just 700 (of which 200 are new positions). So 62% flow through.

The Company is required to meet set growth targets at each 3 year mark. The union alone gets to determine if those targets were met.
