Re: One List

I think it’s funny that people think that the PTA is bad for the airline industry. Isn’t this just building unity? Management groups are scared shitless of a unified pilot group. I think I’m the long run, this will raise the bar for Canadian aviation. I think we have a better shot of getting more fa...

Re: ONEX plans

And as far as cancelling flights and stranding passengers, every airline has had its share at one point or another, especially Air Canada, including very recently. This just to add perspective. Now, speculation is easy and here's another! It is rather clear that WestJet group as a whole is worth mo...

Re: Westjet or Sunwing

If you are looking for a faster upgrade time, sunwing is probably a better place to go. As far as a career airline, personally I would be apprehensive to go to sunwing. Sunwing is a hotel/resort company that happens to operate airplanes. To the best of my knowledge, they don’t operate airplanes as e...

Re: SWOOP - A New Hires Future

A couple nights ago I heard a pilot correct himself after saying empress instead of swoop a couple times and then after landing I saw a Canadian North airplane at a gate. Is Canadian north doing uplift for swoop? Swoop had to charter Canadian North because nobody would pick up OT in irrops. Can’t s...

Re: Encore contract negotiations

If the company decides to axe the one list, it will cause major problems for them. I know many Encore pilots that will have an “anywhere but here” approach if the one list disappears. People will be leaving for 703/704 jobs vs staying with Encore. As mentioned above, Encore will be the last option f...

Re: SWOOP OTS Captains punted from left seat...

Cloak, you keep comparing Encore to Swoop. There are some major differences on how these two companies were formed. Encore was voted in by the employees, and swoop was formed by the company. You also compare the job that I took at Encore to an OTS hire at swoop. I’m just not buying your bullshit.
