Re: Cargo TA

Is there any language at all to stop them from reducing other WB positions when adding these freighter positions? That seems critical to me. We aren't protecting any jobs if that's not there, and worse than that we are trading good positions for worse ones.

I noticed TSB is releasing reports almost daily now that they can't duck out of the office and go to Tim's.

Re: Why are upgrades still happening at AC?

They were REALLY short on pilots. They've been hiring 500 a year for multiple years. So what you think is junior might not be so. Before Covid people with less than 2 years at the company were being awarded Captain positions. A lot of those awards have been stripped away now but people there for lon...

Re: Amphib caravan wrecked in Northern Saskatchewan

It doesn't really matter what your gear is when when traction is absolutely zero. You have to fly the plane as if you were still in the air. That usually means crabbing as you slide down the ice like a curling stone. The really tricky part is you can't stand up after getting out of the plane without...

If you call TC Medical they have an email address listed on the voicemail. Don’t forget the E at the end of the French “civile”. They responded within a couple of days. Could you please type out the whole email address if you know it? I can't understand the French part. It's ontcivilaviationmedicin...

Or those irresponsible millennials that bought bread and meat from the store instead of hand milling the flour from the wheat you grew last summer or the buck you speared, skinned, and butchered with a shard of obsidian.

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

There is no way Air Canada is in a financial position to buy another airline for nearly a billion dollars at this time. Even if they were the optics of dishing out that kind of cash while laying off a big chunk of your employees would be terrible. Perhaps in a couple years when things are returning ...

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

The competition bureau report is actually due out in a week. March 23rd. AC and AT have not been allowed to communicate with each other about this deal until that report is released. Even the AT CEO has said he expects this report to be negative. All of this was reported by the Financial Post but we...

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

How will Transat stock go to zero? You mean that if air Canada doesn’t buy Transat, Transat is instantly going bankrupt and liquidation? If that’s the case then Transat is not worth anything, so why would AC buy them. Time to sell those Transat shares! Apparently they are worth nothing!/s Not insta...

Expected to go through according to the CEO of Transat. Who knows if doesn't, in the current market, his company's stock will literally go to zero.

Re: 3 dead, 2 uninjured in NWT

Oh I agree 100% it's an airplane issue. Float planes flip. I know multiple career float pilots that have flipped them. There is no way anyone should be putting innocent people in a float plane without a reasonable chance of egress available to them via a simple to operate emergency exit. These are t...

I have worked for operators where insurance has said it's up to you to decide who flies your airplanes. We trust you enough to not put incompetent people in there. So it's not always the insurance company making that call.

I would think that too if the people running this emergency alert system weren't so incompetent.
