Re: New WestJet FO

Upgrades are seniority based. As long as your last few sims are clean and you dont have a serious attitude problem you get your upgrade. That seniority list includes encore and swoop. As for swoop who knows what onex has planned. Right now its slated to get 10 aircraft. Who knows if it'll expand or ...

Re: New WestJet FO

The point is if AC stagnates, everyone will. Think that left seat's going to come sooner at WJ if the economy tanks? Slagging someone coming to AC from WJ looking for a left seat makes no sense. If it's not coming at AC. It's for sure not coming at WJ. No one is slagging anyone. Infact I wish all m...

Re: New WestJet FO

Its a pretty good gig still, good schedules, travel perks, pretty good money. Really theres a lot up in the air. With Onex buying us, a change in our compensation (pension) and I hear accelerated 787s coming, there is some good moment coming. That could change tomorrow, this is aviation after all. G...

KAG,
if wording was the issue, why not rework it and put it to another vote? Common employee is a pipe dream and could take months to years before there's an answer. Did the company agree to it?
Totally agree, let's start with rewording now and finish with common employer later

Re: One list

Skybarron, pull your head out of your a$$. I'm a mainline cpt, I voted no Purely because of the lack of 2 way flow. I chat with a lot of my peers and can say with confidence we want this.

Re: One list

No grandfathering, no re-voting. You lost. Brexit did not pass because people were tricked. Trump did not win because of Russia collusion. Why can modern liberal-type not accept the result of a vote? Last I checked it's us Gen Xers demanding we tweak what we voted no to, not the encore pilots. Nice...

Re: One list

Now, for Biff and ex-DC10 driver and sarg, it looks like I have been proven wrong that even after a failed LOA, the WJ MEC is looking at different options and wording. I'm happy to be wrong on this. I hope that we can continue working on this to protect pilot unity at WestJet. Cheers No worries bud...

Re: One list

So let's say the LOU gets fixed up with wording to protect certain things that you guys were concerned about (layoff protection, etc.)...Would you guys vote "yes" to it? Yup. A true one list has movement in both directions. In the event of a layoff I want to know I get a left seat on the dash. Do I...

Re: BETRAYAL!

Rezy, the reason ac pilots cant bump down to jazz or SR is because they have seperate lists. You go to AC from either company its BOTL. As for not taking a dash spot from the jet in a layoff scenario - I would. You think a major down turn lasting years you'll ride the UI line for only so long. And a...

For what it's worth, you guys at Encore are still way ahead where you would have been before the existence of Encore. Which don't forget, was only 6 years ago.

Re: One list

There is already a ground swell of wj no voting pilots who want it reworked and re voted. Fix one simple aspect- reverse flow if there are layoffs (as was in the original moa) and it will pass.
The one list is still wanted, and I expect a demand for tweaking. Dont freak out just yet.

Re: Leaving a good paying secure job for aviation

Hello all, I did my flight training about 5 years ago but a lot of things didn't work out so had to put it off. I'm always thinking about getting back into aviation to the point that it's bothering me every day, the goal would be the airlines obviously (i.e Sunwing, Transat, etc.) The dilemma is no...

Re: Westjet Mainline FO ad.

Why does WJ mainline even hire OTS? I mean, I know a handful of Encore Captains who have been there several years and still havent had the opportunity to flow up. Why not make the hires 100% from encore? It must be a little frustrating seeing waiting for the call when half the 737 classes are outsi...
