Re: 737 max

:!: I think you misunderstand, it was a half joking comment and I'm certainly not advocating against Beer and BBQ budget. Rather I'm pointing out that when you're off every day you've got more time for Beer and BBQ, thus you may have been under budgeting your requirements... plus traveling, spring s...

Re: 737 max

I don't know... It's not big bucks, and it certainly isn't ideal... but if you're going bankrupt on $60K/year to stay at home, because you're not getting a few hundred bucks in per diems, maybe you need to re-evaluate and reign in your spending... or maybe with all the free time the Beer and BBQ bu...

Re: DOH merge.

I don’t know many Ac Pilots that expect botl. However it is tough position for allot of pilots hired in recent years at Ac. They stand to lose the most from this deal in future earnings, not to mention past earnings already sacrafised by choosing the best route to Ac through regionals. Transat Pilot...

Re: DOH merge.

Ahmen, id like to see the transat pay scale, see the difference that these guys and gals could be walking into. It makes no sense, everybody knew the risk being at transat. They chose that route. They should have to sacrifice what the rest of is did to get to Ac. I mean I’ve only been a pilot for 10...

Re: DOH merge.

Wrong, air canada fully intends on taking all 737maxs. It will take the travelling public all of a month to forget about it. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear the max is siltently renamed. The public will not know the difference.

Re: DOH merge.

Correct me if I’m wrong but I’ve heard transat hiring extremely low time pilots. So they hit the lotto and slide ahead of everybody who put the time making penny’s at express? And actually flying throughout Canada before that? Your right the 23 yr old instructor deservers that spot over the ex trans...

Re: AC offer AT $13 per share

It would be minimal for everybody hired at AC pre 2016. Everybody after will have 500 people slide ahead. Many who had to bite the bullet and go make penny’s at express to get to ac. So they should just slide in? The people who quit express to go to transat come out ahead, the ones who left transat ...

Re: DOH merge.

Agreed, many of us spent years at regionals paying our dues for the chance at mainline. While people left for a career at Transat and now have the opportunity to just come back and slide Ahead of all who worked towards ac. Or the many that left Transat recently for ac who would now be bipassed.

Re: BETRAYAL!

Mainline pilots worried about layoffs? I would love to see how many WestJet Pilots would actually bid down to Encore instead of taking a commutable contract over seas making $$$$$ and spending more time at home. If that’s your argument I ain’t buying it for one.

Re: One list

Congrats to the original swoop scum who couldn’t get a job at well any other half decent airline. Before being picked off the bottom because they were the online option. As well to the low time guys who got in because all the other qualified pilots were working their buts off being captains at encor...

Re: Air Canada Pool

With the website opening up for application how does this affect the guys at the express level who did not get hired until after the current PMl? Is it now more likely to get hired off the street or come from an express carrier?
