Re: OTS WesJet Mainline FO

Good morning folks, I’ve recently been pooled and am super excited about it. I have a couple questions for those of you that commute: -Currently, how long of a wait is it to hold a YYC base? I’ve read the threads and consensus is about 2-3 years. If approved, would a shared seniority list with WJE ...

Re: AC soars, WJ nosedives

RookiePilot. I'll say again.
Air Canada Debt: $6,063,000,000
WestJet Debt: $627,000,000

WestJet reported a loss of $20.8-million after 13 years.
Air Canada reported a loss of $77-million.

Putting giant pie charts up on here doesn't make it profitable.
AC has too much overhead.

Re: AC soars, WJ nosedives

Let's not forget that back in the CDN/AC days the aviation industry was under heavy regulation and the Canadian Government dictated who flew what routes etc (favouring AC).

Look after your employees, they will look after your customers, your customers will look after your stock price.

I remember when Orca got the bag contract in Alberta from Sunwest and they did such a poor job that it ended up going back Sunwest. Maybe their Ho’s had too much rain water in them. Sunwest has been a long time Metro, Caravan, and Ho operator and they were very good at it, although not cheap. Safety...
