Re: AC 045 DEL-YVR now operating via CPH?

It would have to be a technical stop for more gas. Probably double crewing as well :prayer:

Re: FO taxiing

Also a valid point ^ Many times the FO can have more experience on type than the Capt. Could have a senior, high-time and experienced FO sitting for lifestyle with a junior brand new Capt. Just because there's 3 stripes on their shoulder DOES NOT immediately rule them out as capable or trustworthy, ...

Re: FO taxiing

I've sat in both seats and can say without a doubt that working with a self-righteous air god makes for the WORST work week. Bad FOs are just as likely as bad Capts. But when these bad Capts are so concerned about their own skin, it makes for a downright dangerous cockpit. CRM is crucial, and yes, t...

Re: The next contract

Key word - by the END of their career. Meanwhile most guys are making far less at the beginning and missing out on capital growth for all those years to attain that level of salary. Cash in hand is far more valuable early on.

Re: FO taxiing

By that logic, how do these captains trust ANYTHING the FOs do? :rolleyes: If you can fly the airplane, you can taxi the airplane. Then a caveat exists, which it does in all flight regimes, to allow the captain to take control (or the FO take control from the captain) :lol: [obviously all company SO...

Re: AC New hires please use your WB bid

If they changed the pay on the first 4 years to be more or modified flat pay to 2 years, would they retroactively pay those who did the full 4? Otherwise I don't see those guys passing their vote. That's not really how it it works. And if those people vote no, they're hypocrites. If Jazz all of a s...

Re: Well that didn’t take long for Swoop FA’s to unionize

The arguments are valid on both sides. A nurse has far more education and training and prerequisites to complete the function of their job, vs, an FA that requires only " 6 weeks " from nothing. The daily function of a nurse draws much more from that prior education and training, whereby an FA shoul...

Re: Thoughts on ACPA Joining ALPA...

Sounds like WestJet is becoming the new Canadian Airlines, so it could be extrapolated that eventually WestJet and AC could merge in the future, thus if both were to be with ALPA, the same scenario would play out.

WestJet obviously over stepped their bounds with this one.
