Re: WestJet introduces WestJet Link

I’m sure if AC management had it their way all narrowbody flying would be at Jazz/Sky/GGN and mainline would be only wide Body. The advantage WS management has for the time being is that there is absolutely nothing protecting scope. Swoop could very well be the airline the 787’s go to. I'd go as fa...

For YQT base, Porter would be the obvious choice. They just recently advertised DEC for YQT and YTZ bases.

Re: Express Pilots VS Mainline Pilots

GATRKGA, just from your posts that I recall in the past, you've been informative, good natured, and having been at SR for a few years, I would loosely translate that into being a decent pilot. Unfortunately, bad things happen to good people, none more so in aviation. All AC deserves to give you and ...

Re: Meet Swoop - WestJet's ultra-low-cost carrier has a name, a home and a purpose

For all the moaning about Rouge lowering working conditions for the pilots at mainline Air Canada, it has obviously worked for Air Canada. Look at the stock price performance to see how the market has rewarded the stock holders. Despite what is oft repeated by union afficionados, pilot wage and ben...

The only reason to go there is $ long term. Soo many issues I don't know where to begin, a divided pilot group, and frank...

Re: BOMBARDIER exploring options for Aerospace Division.

Is the Learjet brand still up for sale? I'm surprised BBD would try to offload the Q and RJ as well. Q seems to be a decent money maker, and the CRJ, a neo version could spark sales.

Re: W5 investigation: Startling number of pilots report routinely falling asleep in the skies

The CEO of Cargojet tells W5 the new rules could put his company out of business because it would require them to hire many more pilots. Here we go again with cargo pilots being immune to fatigue. CJ has nearly a monopoly on cargo in Canada. If AJ can't figure out how to make a profit, he probably ...

Re: Do people go from Jazz to Sky.

At every base the most junior captain is Classic Dash. The wait is around 1.5-2 yrs. So I don't know where the 4 yrs is coming from (you are not locked on an aircraft for an upgrade), nor if you're concerned about time on type why you would switch from the classic when again it goes junior for upgra...

Re: Westjet. The new PML to Air Canada!

I mentioned previously that the best place to go to get to AC is Encore. Regardless of WS going ALPA, there'll still be a guaranteed flow, and now a good shot at AC, almost as good as the "up to 80%" from express. Forget AC express carriers, go Encore. :?

Another suggestion for the focus group, if Jazz were to implement a port type base system like WJ used to have, that might spur some pilots into joining, just wanted to throw that out there. That is a great idea that would entice many. Porters new YQT base will likely prove a smart move on their pa...
