Re: Jazz or Sunwing ?

Does Sky get 12 min days off per month? I didn't think they did.

Re: Hanging your hat at Jazz?

Still on the fence because I have not been at Jazz long.

I am considering AC because eventually, AC would yield better wages and more options. That being said, I am really enjoying Jazz at the moment and when decision time comes, it will be a hard choice.

Re: Jazz or Sunwing ?

AC pilots are the lowest paid mainline pilots in North America with by far the lowest year 1-4 non CA pay. What are your thoughts on that? I don't see how that's comparable in any way, considering that work isn't being shifted to whatever airline pays the least. If that were the case, though, by yo...

If we didn't sign the contract, nothing prevented the company from reducing ESOP anyway and we'd be at 25% instead of 45%...

It also added some difficult formula to YOS for those hired after jan 2015 and a couple of scheduling/credit changes.
What?

YOS -2 = captain starting pay. Anniversary on date of hire.

The instruction is embedded in our COM. When I did my line indoc there as a YUL commuter, it's actually a flight attendant who showed me how to do it.

It's obvious that AC was looking to secure labor stability in the regional network until 2035.

As long as you're ok with having an unknown base to start with, Jazz is by far a better medium to long term choice at the moment. The first bit of time at Jazz will be a little tougher, but there will be lots of movement and once you have a bit of seniority, your quality of life will be substantial...
