Re: Recall timeline

It's becoming increasingly obvious that Air Canada is going to be an 800 pound gorilla exiting the Covid crisis. Transat's gone, WestJet is in shambles, and now they're going to eat CargoJet's lunch too. It's not going to be immediate but history may record this as the best thing to ever happened to...

Re: Aircraft cancellations

So are the current number of positions on the 220 and 737 for the aircraft already Air Canada has (or are getting shortly)? Or do you think they will be reducing positions due to these cancellations?

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

Well I HIGHLY doubt ONEX would be looking to touch anything airline related with a 100 foot pole. The made a huge mistake with the WJ purchase and will not make a bigger mistake again. I think ONEX and the board are looking deeply on how to unload WJ with losing the least amount of money. After thi...

Re: COVID MOA 2

Good. Those boomer conspiracy theorists whipping each other into a frenzy were starting to concern me. Plus the rogue MEC member, whom I'm afraid literally has schizophrenia, egging them on. I can't imagine what the 81 that already had layoff notices for Oct. 1 were feeling. Hopefully they had more ...

Re: COVID MOA 2

The "I already took my layoff hit now it's your turn. There's nothing in it for me" is ugly to read. A contrarian, knee-jerk No reaction is natural but they aren't considering how bad things could really get. Not just for other people but for them too. Voting is open for a week so I urge p...

Scope isn't changed in this MOA. What we are witnessing is a form of hysteria.

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

The JV issue allows the company to take the 45 passengers booked on their YYZ to FRA flight to be put on a Lufthansa flight and cancel the AC flight. Good? Sending a 250 passenger airplane flying with 45 people is not a money making proposition. Neither is competing against a partner airline that g...

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

Kind of cringe worthy. I'm not so out of touch to not know memes can be powerful tools of communication and influence. These facebook-tier memes and videos just end up making you look dumb though. It was funny once or twice now it's getting sad. I want ALPA as much as anybody but I don't think this ...

Re: 79 Airplanes Retired

The collateral pool will include nine A321-200s, one B777-200(LR), three B767-300(ER)s, and three B787-8s. Five of the A321s were delivered in 2001 and are approaching 20 years old, while the other four were delivered in 2013 and 2014. The B777-200(LR) was delivered in 2008, the B777-300(ER)s in 20...

Why only NWT? Were they especially affected by the pandemic compared to other remote northern operators in other provinces and territories?

Postmaster... The issue is well before the leaked Memo you are referring to. All members of the MEC are duty bound to follow the rules constitution of ACPA, and when dealing with Legal bargaining, they are legally bound to follow the law regarding good faith, and illegal job actions, or counseling ...
