Your time is your time. What you choose to do with it is none of Air Canada's business.

The reality may differ, but my sentiment remains the same.

Re: 2nd Job

No problem at all even when you’re flying as long as you arrive for your flights properly rested. If you take a job that involves flying though it needs to be cleared with them as it could affect your availability to AC. Also if you’re on reserve no matter what your other job is you are expected to ...

"Shelter in place indefinitely" is not the plan now and has never been the plan. Anybody who thinks so is not paying attention at all.

I'd almost be offended Tsgarp, but as per one of my previous posts on another thread I just find it impossible to take anyone who uses the word "dude" seriously. Progress beyond a highschool maturity level and we'll talk.

So, you knew all along that CBC was a de facto newspaper and your original comment was made for the sole purpose of channeling your inner dickhead?

Re: Travel restrictions in EU vs Canada

Why not just set up mandatory quick testing on arrival, include the fee in the flight cost and if they test negative free to enjoy the country no quarantine and if they are positive they get forced into a quarantine location. Test before departure and again on arrival Something like that might actu...

Re: Survey on two person in the cockpit rule

I did answer your question Jack. Your training didn’t gain you access to the flight deck, it gained you the seat behind the controls as a qualified pilot. FA training doesn’t gain them access to the flightdeck, it gains them their jumpseat as a qualified flight attendant. Neither your training or th...

The FAA still has the rule. What risk are you talking about? FA’s still come to the flight deck just as much as they always have. Pilots still go to the lav just as much as they always have. Flight attendants have not been banned from the flight deck for any other reason including as JS riders. The ...

Re: Survey on two person in the cockpit rule

Your training allows you to sit behind the controls and be one of the flight crew, not enter the door. If Transport Canada and your company didn’t trust you to safely fly the airplane you wouldn’t be regardless of any “two in the FD” policy.

Rockie, The FA’s usually just turned around and pushed on the locked door over and over and over again. The trained pilot actioned the automatic door control. Cheers. I think not.
