It will be BOTL. When Canadian merged with AC years ago they went BOTL. It sucks but ACPA has a obligation to its pilots. Research previous AC mergers of you dont believe me.
The merge with Canadian was BOTL? Is that what everyone thinks happened?

Re: Uniform question

Brings back memories of this YWG DC9 skipper yoyo that had to bid down to F/O to be able to slip into YVR in the early 80's. His PA's always started with:

"Ladies and gentlemen, this is your first officer captain speaking....."

Had us oilers rolling on the floor every time!
