Re: tablet on the CPL checkride?

So, you have your magenta line, in your boeing, and when you don't want to follow a magenta line, you can fly a J3 and use charts. Lucky you, to have the choice. What about those of us who just want to get from A to B as quickly and efficiently as possible, and don't have a Boeing in which to do it...

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

So no 737 flown scheds were taken over by the Q400 ? 737 scheds were most certainly usurped by Encore. Passengers expect more frequency which the Q400 is great at providing. Once the '37's were relieved of the "milk runs" they were free to be placed on other more profitable routes. You will never m...

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

Whats the difference between the Swoop pilots being OTS and the Encore pilots being OTS when Encore started? Encore also had the lowest Q400 wages in the country, but I don't remember if there was a big outcry from the mainline pilot group like there was for swoop.

Re: Best resource on airliner systems

For me technical information has always been nice to know. I like to have a basic understanding of the systems. I spend more time focu...

Try an experiment then. Tell your friends and co-workers to their face you think they lack integrity and professionism. Run inside the lounge and tell the manager you think he's running a second rate operation. Stand outside the lounge and tell anybody passing you in uniform they are abusing the sy...

So you honestly thought AMEX would be cool with the lounge being used as a crew lounge? Guys running in there to stuff their faces on a 30 minute turn. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to think “hey man, that can’t be right”. Oh wait no it can because they guys hawking the cards, who say anything ...

Re: American Express (Premium Plaza) Lounge will now require a boarding pass

What’s to debate? This card was hawked to crew for its lounge access and for a long time it served its purpose. The lounges decided to enforce the rule and now the card’s usefulness is greatly diminished so they won’t sell as many and current users will cancel and get a refund. Simple. But you can’...

Do you recall ever walking past an AMEX kiosk in an airport? If I had a dollar for each time one of them said “lounge access” to me I could retire.

Re: American Express (Premium Plaza) Lounge will now require a boarding pass

It's irrelevant who or what company. It was a pilot and it looks bad on ALL of us. This. I think justwork is referring to the additional cards you can add to your account for 200 bucks. One account, 10 cards at 750+(200x9). It is hard to argue a refund becuase how do you put a value on the lounge a...

it is absolutely demented to me that a pilot would ever think they're not a scamming the system. You pay a couple hundred bucks for a CC and expect free meals. When clearly the intention is that the card be used by the travelling public not pilots who have a quick turn, every day, all the time, alwa...
