Re: Bargaining idea

I always wondered this. What is the “classic airline”? The classic airline was (from what I understand) an attempt by the company to spin off the DH8 classics into its own airline (kinda like rouge and swoop). In an attempt to make it another division with cheaper labour. What ended up happening wa...

Re: American Express (Premium Plaza) Lounge will now require a boarding pass

Re: Pilot Seniority Porting

most my guess is that it'd give someone an extra 8 or 9 months seniority at Jazz (maybe just enough to skip RES in YUL or not getting the base they want? Sorry...IMO 8-9 months is 8-9 months. For some that could mean not seeing an upgrade for years given the state of the industry. Mathematically th...

Re: Jazz Chief Pilots and DFO

They ask if you know who the President and CEO are. Colin Copp and Joseph Randell. That's really all you need to know. If they ask who the VP of Flight Ops is, that's Steve Linthwaite, and Director of Flt Ops is Cal Purves. I don't see them asking anything further than that. Awesome. I really appre...

Now your paying 2X and 2Y to have a sparkly paint job than can not be retouched by maintenance when it starts to fall apart. Just ...
