Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

I just talked to a guy in training. The rumour was incorrect, I apologize for spreading it. The next course Monday is 14.

Sounds like they're expecting to be increasing the numbers by Nov or Dec.

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

Wondering if Iflyroads or any other AC insider has information regarding upcoming class sizes now that the Max is off the schedule for another month. Is it safe to say we can expect groups of 10-15 for the next few classes? Thanks, T. From my understanding the next class coming up has 40 in it. Tak...

Re: Air Canada staff will no longer greet 'ladies and gentlemen' onboard planes

No flight ops bulletins yet...apparently in flight have had one come out, but I haven't seen it personally. Victory, a small percentage of the population identify as "non-binary"..personally, I'm not in the know enough to explain it. I don't believe in changing specific laws to force people to use c...

Re: Air Canada staff will no longer greet 'ladies and gentlemen' onboard planes

It doesn't really bother me how I greet people aboard the airplane. If it makes a few people feel a bit more welcome, then why not?

I’m upset to see that the groundschool I was supposed to be in was mostly OTS and next ones will GGN.
The level of entitlement here is shocking..

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

I forget what the min pension time is, but I figure it would be 25yrs. I've been with the company for about 2 years now, and have benefited a lot from the latest wave of hiring, so I'm certainly not working max days on the 320 as an FO (YYZ).This month I have 20 days off doing long turns.

Re: Air Canada Medical

When I did my new hire medical, my glasses wouldn't correct my left eye above 20/40. All they required of me was to go see my optometrist and get a new prescription and to give them the optometry report.

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

1.5 to 2 years seems a little optimistic unless you had a reserved seniority number. I think the bottom 737 CA is around 3000 in the seniority list. I have seen 320 CA go much lower than that though. Good times regardless!

Thanks for that, just want to make sure, is that with max contribution to DC pension plan?

That was my most recent pay with the TBP plan, which has a fixed contribution rate. I'm not involved in the ESOP.

First paycheque after tax and deductions is $2100, while the second one has your per diems on it, and is usually around 2200 ($1400 without PDs).

Re: "High time" college students

Can't speak for Confed or the Sault, but Seneca had me do a shorter "PPL Stage" at the beginning of my training. After that point, I was on the same curriculum as everyone else.

I think allowing facial hair is a huge mistake. Also, the uniform police need to be out in full force. There are many slobs out there and it reflects poorly on the brand and your fellow colleagues..
