Re: Who will bid the A220?

Altiplano how do you explain the 8 737 new hire spots for mid-july? Also how is this possible given the lists on the 737 are full on the last bid? Can they assign new hires to positions not even available for those on the property to bid on? They sure can. Happened last year with the 767RP position.

Re: AC offer AT $13 per share

Hmm, so you should be rewarded for lowering the industry standard for years at Transat? And benefit for others hard work and progress? You my friend are what is wrong with the industry. Enjoy your new seniority number and your new job. Danield, there is no need to be condescending when you are one ...

Re: AC offer AT $13 per share

It amazes me at how some here are dismissive of the facts, and will skew them to their own (un)favourable view. You're either dense, a troll, or chicken little reincarnate (I assume he died when the sky fell). So as my final post on this matter, let me spin it for you naysayers to the view you want...

Re: DOH merge.

I fail to see how this can be a bad thing for the AC pilot group at all, even if DOH were to be implemented. Adding more planes from a company that runs skeleton crews, no relief pilots and rarely augmented flights. As far as I know we're getting the new 321's but have the option for many more. I s...

Re: AC offer AT $13 per share

Really BOTL. Comfort in knowing pay won’t be hurt??? There’s way more to life than pay. Vacation schedule, monthly schedule are just 2 I can think of that that would be horrible going from a senior Capt go a BOTL FO Their airplane got sold. No it didn’t. AC had to buy Transat before Onex did and me...

Re: AC offer AT $13 per share

It would be minimal for everybody hired at AC pre 2016. Everybody after will have 500 people slide ahead. Many who had to bite the bullet and go make penny’s at express to get to ac. So they should just slide in? The people who quit express to go to transat come out ahead, the ones who left transat...

Re: What's the oldest age one should consider AC

50!???!!? Damn man. I am just under thirty and thinking of not going, not for my age but for the seniority I will have. AC has hired massive amounts in the last three years, times are good, real good. Bad times follow good times. Everyone seems to forget this is a cyclical industry. I dont know may...

Re: What's the oldest age one should consider AC

My response would be age 50. 10-15 years gives you enough time to retire in the top half of a NB CA or WB FO list with somewhat of a pension at 65. 4 years to 200k on WB FO or 2-3 years to junior NB CA at 220k. Or you can remain senior NB FO and still make 120k+ after 4 years. Take home on flat pay ...

Re: Career First Officer at AC by design?

This is what every pilot who bid the 777 F/O, while in flat pay, needs to have a good long look at.....because you will be making nowhere near that, enjoy chatting with the crew about there boats and Porsche's while you hope they cover the bus tip on arrival.......thats a $200K seat that you just o...

Re: Career First Officer at AC by design?

Not to mention a Southwest newhire makes more than a 5 year pilot at AC and works fewer hours. Pathetic. As is that pay stub above. An American 787 FO makes 350.000 US ~(464.000CAD) and has more time off and better working condiotions. This is impossible. New hire Sun Wing pilots make $150-200k per...

Re: Career First Officer at AC by design?

This is a typical 12 year pay B777 pay stub. Some B777 FOs are slightly higher because they are on "grandfathered" pay from the previous contract. This year end stub reflects a November YYZ-HKG overtime trip and another OT trip earlier in the year. Those that do a lot of overtime can make a lot mor...
