Re: WS/WO Layoff Mitigation Agreement

WestJet pilots are nothing but a bunch of whining babies nowadays. Nothing is good enough, everything is always bad. You guys are lucky to have jobs right now - every other group has taken massive hits and you're still left relatively standing. How dare we complain about the WAWCON eh? How dare we ...

Threw is the past tense of the verb throw. It's the word you use to say that something threw you for a loop or threw you off.

For the same reason a king air or Navajo captain makes more than a captain at encore.
Or, for the same reason someone will leave a $140,000 turboprop job, to make less than half of that as a FO at WJ.

Re: One List is Back!!

Super happy for you guys! It’s great to take the lead on this sort of arrangement in Canada. Once hired - no more interviews, no more pay cut to transfer to WJ. It’s pretty sweet for a pilot starting at WJE. Do the best job we can now - support our guests and support our growth! It’s been a weird c...

Pretty clearly explained in the CAP.

It’s not if you’re in a radar environment, BUT on radar vectors.

Re: Swoop

I could have gone to Swoop while I was with Encore as a DOC and ran away as fast as I could knowing what all the work rules are. So I am genuinely curious as to why is anyone going now that there is even more information on how bad it really is out there. They are clearly the worst operator in Cana...

Re: Flair PAY

Previously they were offering 10 GDO's/month and 93K/year for DEC to start. That's actually not too bad, to start. Not sure why most pilots think they should all be making $200,000+. I fly a much smaller airplane than a 737, and make north of $120,000. I honestly feel I am way overpaid for what I d...
