Re: WS/WO Layoff Mitigation Agreement

Or maybe the announcement was made on purpose to force the federal to give them some sort of a bailout. Meanwhile, watch the market opens on Monday morning, I won't be surprised to see AC stock plummets another 50%. Funny, AC was up over 14%! Good call. :lol: Well, when you have the government sayi...

Re: IATRA Exam

If you pass your IATRA then have a 2-crew ppc then pass your Saron and Samra, those two will not be frozen.

Same logic if you pass your iatra first then saron/Samra, your iatra will be used to issue your 2crew type rating.

Re: Best guess when recalls could happen

I am one of the many Jazz pilots laid off. To be quite honest, depending on how long this layoff lasts, it may be the end of my commercial aviation career. I am in the process of securing a well paying job in the tech industry using my previous experience and university degree. I love to fly, but I...

Re: MOA2

so 50 x 80 is nowhere near EI. Still willing to understand this statement when your debating whether or not you’d make more on EI staying at home. Those initial figures are only as long as the CEWS program lives. After that, 50mmg till end of year. It's only an FO spot that will be marginal compared...

Re: WestJet Group Hiring Freeze

I’ve heard plans of returning with only 39-737’s and 22-Q400’s. What are the plans for the 787’s and the 767’s? Initially parking or any being returned ? Good luck to all, hope for a quick return. TS I think it's 17-737s and 22-Q400s. 39 aircraft total. Plus 1 787....or maybe more depending on carg...

Unfortunately, you are right, you are in the worst situation.
Maybe the only thing you need to find out is how long will it take to take Jazz back up to what it was in November last year, then you can probably plan on a year or 2 up in north.

Re: Ground school canceled

Jazz is about to recall their employees with the fed wage subsidy program and tell them to stay home. Any change those who had a ground school scheduled and canceled could jump on the payroll and get a seniority number? Do you really think Jazz will hire you to sit home? If you were Jazz would you ...

Re: Meanwhile... in the US pilots are still getting paid....

Also, Delta pilots are getting up to 59k in bonuses this year via spontaneous profit sharing. That's money they could have simply kept. Not true. It is 16% of their salary. You're right, from what I've just looked up with Delta it's contractual. I recently read an article about a US major that was ...

As long as you don’t have the call for the GS consider you might be pfo’ed. Would seem like a lot of trouble on the part of Jazz HR to go that deep in to the process and PFO someone no?
