Re: WJ pilots reject tentative agreement

At any arbitration, any union I have been aware of always sends their reps, not the lawyers. The lawyers take over once the union is in trouble. Completely false. There are pilot reps on the grievance committee who provide input, but arbitrations are run completely by the lawyers and professional l...

LCC will be blocked between 77.5 and 85 hours per month, with anything over 82.5 being at 1.5x.

Re: Pilot layovers

Dear Flight Crews: What do you look for when it comes to choosing a place to stay when your base city is not your home city? How much would you be willing to pay per night? What kind of comforts do you look for? I ask because I have a house veey close to the Ottawa airport that I am thinking of ren...

airway wrote: Now that Sky Regional has 15 Jets, there is still room for 45 more additional jets at the regional level (the 16 that Jazz has now are not included in the 60 total jets). Total maximum jets at the regional level - 76, respecting the 29/100 ASM limit.
Completely and totally incorrect.

Re: The race begins?

Not that much room actually. As I said earlier, once the airplanes are removed from the fleet, that will bump up the ratio. Then once the airplanes start flying at SR, that will bump the numbers again.

ACPA is taking a very, very close look at the numbers right now.

Not a chance. Unless guys decide to quit Air Canada and go work at SR.

Re: The race begins?

Fanblade Domestic ASMs flown by widebody aircraft are included in the 29/100 ratio. Read the contract. It explicitly states that only INTERNATIONAL widebody flying is not included. The numbers I have heard put AC around 23/100 ASMs currently. However the ratio will take a big hit here twice. When th...

Re: The race begins?

Wide body A/C are not included in the seat ratio of scope. It's narrow body only. From what I understand we were already at the 100/30 ratio. Lets see what happens. Incorrect on both counts. Reference is 1.10.04 for the widebody thing. And they are significantly below the 29/100 ratio, somewhere ar...

Ah, I see you changed your post while I was typing mine. FYI, I would have no problem with the TA being voted down if it was done honestly, but it wasn't. I got a lot of anonymous emails full of half truths and outright lies about that TA that were leaked from someone on the inside that wanted it t...

Re: New Contract thread

I guess the hundreds of people who signed the petitions and the majority of pilots who cast their votes to recall the people responsible were wrong? So were the the 2/3rds of the pilot group that voted down the piece of shit TA1? I guess in your world, minority rules? Interesting perspective you hav...

jdm I stand by the petitions and would do them again. I'd vote no to TA1 again. I don't support the new contract at all. I have no interest in getting into a mud slinging debate with you or any other anonymous person on here. You want to have a debate about the petitions, the failure of TA1, or anyt...
