Re: Air Canada Pay

AC pilots will end up in aribitration sooner than later. How can they demand "industry standard" (even close to US carriers) when the rest of Canada is willing to work for way less garbage wages for airline work. It is absolutely up to the other carriers to step up their game. Ac is getting dragged...

Re: Sunwing hires Swoop

What's the deal with Cloak anyways?

Is he some kind of wanna be super Koolaid drinker manager? If you read his drivel it is like WJ Poop don't stank no matter what they do (but be sure the pilots still are required to pick up this poop after each flight)

Re: DOH merge.

No way Transat goes to the BOTL. If it was an Alberta pipeline, it probably would, but a Montreal Based company need not worry.

DOH is unlikely as AC didn’t even use DOH for its own list

Re: What's the oldest age one should consider AC

When it comes to AC, you either $hit or get off the pot. Sooner you get here, the sooner you get seniority, sooner life gets good. It just takes a couple years to have “options” With a forecast of 600 to be hired this year, I would not wait. You can’t go back for more seniority Flat pay isn’t great ...

Not to mention a Southwest newhire makes more than a 5 year pilot at AC and works fewer hours. Pathetic. As is that pay stub above.

Re: Anybody commuting to a US carrier?

So let me get this straight:

You moved from the country with a massive pilot shortage and much better compensation to move to the home of traffic congestion, money laundering, real estate shadow flipping, taxes, and where English is the second most pronounced language.

Can you move back?
