Re: What bases and routes do you think the A220 will have?

Rumours that the 220 may go to YUL first. Who knows, at this rate the YYZ 190s may not retire as planned in spring of 2020 if the max grounding drags on.....

Re: Air Canada YHZ

A small update but nothing really new. From the sounds of it the exit was in worse condition than the runway and the wind helped the poor folks along.

Re: Chorus/Ggn/Sky merge

Won’t happen And the disappearance of GGN as an a Express carrier was not going to happen. GGN was going to get CRJ900’s and expand. That WAS the AC plan. Wonder what changed? I will go with 50/50 that there will be just 1 Express operating certificate within 24 months. What just happened? In the j...

I actually would never call a person with opposing political views a name. Having an opinion opposite of one's own does not merit insults.

Since the budget won’t balance itself the only place Liberals know where to cut is the military. 10 years to study new side arms, replacing old fighter jets with the same aged fighter jets and now this.

Heard from another AC guy that the Express carriers have instituted a 2 year minimum wait before going to AC to stem the exodus and staffing problems. Not official though.

Re: CommutAir is working on sponsoring Canadian pilots

The big difference being when Canadian operators did it they did so to cut costs and avoid hiring Canadians. Today in
America it seems like there are no Americans to hire and they are paying good money to fill the flight deck.

You only need one question on the survey:

“DO YOU SUPPORT ACPA ENTERING IN TO EXPLORATORY DISCUSSIONS WITH ALPA TO EXAMINE THE POTENTIAL BENEFITS OR DRAWBACKS FOR THE AIR CANADA PILOTS OF MERGING ACPA WITH ALPA?”

YES

NO
AGREED, all other questions are not truly relevant.
