I want to see the MOA in full. The exact language that was signed by both parties.

Why was that not released day one?
It's available on the site now.

Re: COVID MOA 2

Unlimited expansion of rouge... (transat?) or anything else they decide. Further expansion of code shares. When the company knows they already exceed the scope limits, why are we even thinking of the idea of rouge expansion? I get the initial hesitation but codeshares are long term ventures that li...

Re: COVID MOA 2

So, with the new MOA out, what is the consensus? It seems we either have to protect the junior jobs and give up scope or roll the dice. Since the company is already in violation of scope, why would the NC even consider bringing this to the membership. What’s the point of saving something if there i...

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

If it's voted down they'll get 75 too... True, but there will be 194 more pilots on the street that otherwise would've been protected with full pay for 6 months. Might be. Can't keep laying off and also be ready for a quick recovery. There isn't going to be a quick recovery. Even if a vaccine came ...

Re: Always check the model number painted on the side when getting in

Just because i don’t know is the QRC the same for both types? I find it weird a QRC would have you shut it down only to have the model specific QRH let you start it back up or is there. Procedure to be done while it’s shut down that allows you to start the engine back up? It's been a little while s...

Re: Always check the model number painted on the side when getting in

Does jazz not use a QRC for shutdowns? They do. There are basically no more memory items. They would've pulled up the QRC then moved on to the longer QRH. The difference between the 200 and 900 is that the 200 has a system to more or less restow the reverser if it comes unlocked IRCC. The 900 doesn...

Re: Carbon tax will drive up airline tickets

Another +1 for electric cars. I got mine last summer and I've thoroughly enjoyed it so far. I had an old Corolla that got about 8.3L/100km, costing about $14 per 100km in pure fuel costs based in YVR. With the EV, doing the same costs about $1.40. :D A huge part of what pushed me to change was payin...

Re: Harbour Air switching to battery powered planes

Disclosure: I'm a card carrying anti-tax, pro-pipeline conservative. I think this plan has merit. As far as the how 'green' are electric vehicles? These aircraft would be charged by BC's hydro-electic dams, they are the automatically the cleanest powered aircraft ever. They are powered by precipita...

Re: Air Canada vs American Airlines A320

If you accuse someone of criminal acts you must also allow the criminal justice system to show that they happened or did not. Seems to me you've skipped that step completely.

Re: Air Canada vs American Airlines A320

This is what you asked me Tailchaser. Once again what proof is there that they are not lying? I think it is possible one or more of them are lying but it is possible some are not lying. So you think some of them could be telling the truth about being sexually assaulted, but you still support him?

Re: Air Canada vs American Airlines A320

I'm asking you what you think. It's a simple yes or no. Until I see proof either way my answer remains I don't know. Should I make a judgement on something this serious based on my personal feelings? I think you'd have to weigh things logically. What are the odds that 22 women over the span of deca...
