Re: Are recently laid off pilots hireable

Typically airline mentalities, particularly from pilots who have only seen the airlines, do not bode well for smaller operators. Your 10,000 hour Boeing pilot (while incredibly skilled in a Boeing) isn't used to the concept of self-reliance. I’m sure they plethora of laid off airline guys would fai...

500 ERIP eligible pilots.

How many will sign up?
Less than 50 is my guess.
I bet it’ll be a lot more than that. Especially given what’s going on right now. Will be interesting to see for sure.

Re: Layoffs

Very good outcome. Could have been so much worse.

Sorry it wasn’t as bad as some of you would have liked. The jealousy and bitterness is palpable.

Hopefully the layoffs are short lived for everyone everywhere.

Fly safe.

Get back in your lane, or maybe go back to website design.
You better get into the unemployment line, because that's going to be your lane for a while me thinks.
what an ignorant thing to say. Are you happy pilots may be laid off?

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

I for one enjoy a back and forth troll fest from time to time. This isn’t that time. Lots of pilots are going to feel some real hurt. Of course they are afraid. I’m afraid. We all should be. Let’s hope for the best. If the deal goes through it’ll be a good thing that a bunch of pilots didn’t lose th...

The more I hear of the selfish entitlement from and handful of AC pilots, the more I look forward to this deal as the salty tears will be delicious. Entitlement? Entitled...to their own jobs... There isn’t a worse trait in a pilot than one who can’t admit when they are wrong, or apologize when they...

They just got a nice new payscale, and they all seem to like their jobs so let them keep them.
Absolutely. Some of these TS remarks are pretty aggravating. Best thing is you won’t have to “endure” working for AC.

Good luck
