Re: Foreign Airlines take CEWS

It is not as insidious as the headline makes out. These airlines all have Canadian workers, who were laid off, so they applied for CEWS to pay there laid off workers. Be they station chiefs, supervisors etc. Most of these airlines use contract workers for things like baggage handling and customer s...

Re: More WJ layoffs

Speaking of which, you got to wonder if Air Canada isn't thinking about picking up West Jet too while their at it. Ummmm no.... WestJet’s owner has faired fairly well during this pandemic, so doubtful they would want to take a haircut this early into their ownership. Schwartz has been trying for a ...

Re: Fox Flight Pay

Hashtag is pretty straight forward. If I wanted to trigger the AC diehards I would've written #stillbetterthanflatpayandacareeratbigred. But that's a long #, not likely to trend anytime soon.

Re: Does Westjet meet the current threshold for foreign investment?

While Westjet is private and there’s little to no way for average Joes like us to see foreign ownership, I’m sure it’s a different story for the government especially when they already had to verify and approve foreign ownership levels during the sale/privatization. Also, Onex has done fairly well t...

Re: More Air Canada cuts.

There’s no point arguing whether Airlines deserve bailouts or not or whether joe public wants to see them get bailouts. It’s clearly not going to happen if it hasn’t happened yet, the best they can hope for is aid or tax breaks during the recovery phase IF it becomes necessary. Unlike previous Airli...

Re: Service Suspension Notice

Not really surprised. They want their bubble. Airlines shouldn’t send one plane there if it’s a money losing venture. Enjoy the bubble. It’s gonna be a long couple of winters.

Re: Alcohol

You’re overthinking it. As long as you arrive to work sober and rested they really don’t care what you do on your time off. The big reason they ask on your medical for weekly drinks is it allows them to monitor for other possible medical conditions down the road. There’s no set hard limit on drinks,...

Re: Has anybody given up?

A few years ago I started with a goal of working for a big airline in a few years, I was in my mid 20's and didn't have to money to commit to flying so I just studied theory and saved up for the flying. 4 years later I've been flying as much as I can but due to weather and how busy schools have bee...

Re: Fired?

I guess half the westjet pilots on avcanada should be terminated as well then. It's sure easier to shoot off one's mouth in what one writes, when being such a coward as to not use your real name. I've learned that here, observing some of the adolescent bullying. A ton of spineless cowards. Have som...

As for having fun with your $350 aircraft. For even more fun, try a roll immediately after takeoff. No sense in letting fear and common sense hold you back.
