Re: Service Suspension Notice

The airlines are realizing it will be summer 2022 before things get normal both internationally and domestically. What is your definition of ‘normal’? Ha! Being able to freely travel. So long as you have proof of vaccination. If you don’t have proof of vaccination you may not be able to leave your ...

Re: Service Suspension Notice

More cuts just announced by AC https://aircanada.mediaroom.com/Air-Canada-Implements-Additional-Capacity-and-Workforce-Reductions Pretty thin on details. Not surprising though with the US moving to required pre-arrival COVID testing starting Jan 26. Proof of vaccination right around the corner. Mos...

Re: Air Canada Second Trip to C.C.A.A.?

I just think that Ac Rouge entered the market to possibly put pressure and acquire TS. No. The comments from management was to put Transat out of business. But of course they couldn’t tell their pilots the plan was really to force the Transat share price into acquisition territory. ACPA would not h...

Re: Cargo TA

I really don’t understand the reaction Canadians have toward aid for airlines. There is a lot of misinformation out there in regards to “past bailouts” which to the best of my knowledge never happened. The current government has been throwing money around in a strategic way, effectively buying vote...

Re: Cargo TA

Good links BTD. BUT THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA AREN'T INTERESTED IN IT. The critical thinker would wonder why that is... meanwhile the sheep fall in line. The real problem is that we are only as strong as our weakest link. In this case the weakest link is hospital capacity. Until that pressure is releas...

Re: Carbon tax announced December 2020

Another example of a tax grab during a change with a moral imperative. After 911 an ATSC security fee was introduced to pay for enhanced airport screening. “While it was notionally intended to fund the operation of the new security screening body, between 2010 and 2016, the ATSC has generated a wind...

Re: Carbon tax announced December 2020

Charts for Federal, Provincial and civic levels of government collecting tax on gas. It is worth billions in revenue. Only some of that revenue is used for roads. Vancouver, Victoria and Montreal have started adding their own fuel tax for infrastructure as a result. :rolleyes: If gas tax revenue fal...

Re: Carbon tax announced December 2020

So fanblade is masks stop covid a scientific fact or theory? And is carbon emissions change climate a scientific fact or theory? Currently they are both theory. Will either of them become science? Maybe, maybe not. My point was simply we should never lose sight of the difference. If you want an exa...

Re: Carbon tax announced December 2020

I think climate change has the potential to be exponentially worse than covid. If we trust the experts with covid and follow all the guidelines, I don't see why anyone would question the experts when it comes to climate change. Trusting experts in things we don't have an education in is the forefro...

Like most financial messes it is not one isolated instance of over spending. Rather it is the culmination of repeated instances of over spending. These young people have their head screwed on right.

I grew up in the 60/70’s when global cooling and the next ice age was the thing. I know. Your gonna say OK Boomer and stop reading. That’s totally up to you. My grandparents lived through the 30’s.

FWIW - an arbitration panel is going to decide the seniority integration solution.
I’m picking up on the word panel. I was asking about this to someone else. Do you know if it is now standard in Canada to have an arbitration panel of three or more?

Re: Cargo TA

Yup. We will not tolerate anything less than at least years of service 1 to 1 for merge. :lol: :lol: :lol: It wouldn’t shock me in the least if Transat started from that position. The initial proposals can be very polarizing. It will take your blood pressure up three notches if you let it. Heck it ...

Rabbit hole guys. Just the mention of DOH indicates a lack of understanding. I wrote this on a previous page. Actually a note of caution here.

Re: Cargo TA

So if CAIL came into the merger having same positions way more senior than AC in terms of YOS..Doesn't it seem a little fair that it went 1 for every 8 in their favor at the bottom? Same can be said here where the majority of 330 positions go way more senior at AC vs TS.. Think about your statement...

Re: Cargo TA

Read on as a warning as to what happens when you buy into your own version of reality, when it isn’t supported in the real world. That right there is what AC pilots should be concerned with. ACPA has a history of buying into its version of what it thinks reality should be, rather than what it actua...

Re: Cargo TA

There's not a different approach given the comparison value? No. Whatever value you perceived vaporizes the day AC buys Transat. Pay scales don’t matter. Expectations the day before don’t matter. You fly white and black wingy things. They fly purple wingy things. The arbitrators don’t fully underst...

Re: Cargo TA

Interesting discussion so far. I believe all pilots are coming to their sense's on the AC side, personally, I believe the merge will go through. I want one list, scope is number one and should be fought for : tooth and nail. The real question is : how much are TS pilots willing to give up? The gain...
