Re: 220 Pilots, what are you thoughts so far??

Just as a passenger I wasn't super impressed. The lavs at the back make no sense and it's loud as a passenger. Really looks like a beefed up modern CRJ900. Really first world problems, but honestly I expected a little better from the C-Series. I'm sure its a great performer and I would love to drive...

Regarding the Jazz fleet, how many aircraft are owned vs. leased ?

Is there a breakdown someplace online to reference ?
No Owned vs leased but https://www.airfleets.net/flottecie/Jazz%20Air.htm

Not very accurate as we currently have ZERO DH8-100 still operating for Jazz.

What indication is there that recalls may begin soon? ( I certainly hope you are correct)

My understanding is that more layoffs could be occurring after Aug 30.. and at this point there would have been more layoffs had alpa not tried to mitigate them.
No more layoffs until Sept 1, 2020

Re: Equipment bid

I would certainly hope so! Hard to say to 675 pilots that it’s too expensive to keep them on CEWS and then keep paying captains their regular wage to sit in the right seat. I wouldn't expect to see an equipment bid until Sept 2020. ALPA is working hard to keep everyone on CEWS, will have to wait an...

Re: Best guess when recalls could happen

Any updated opinions on when hiring will start back up. It's going to be a while I would guess. Jazz currently has 675 pilots "inactive" which all need to come back on the property before Jazz will "hire" again. Also the only reason Jazz was really hiring was due to the shortage at AC which has now...

Re: Best guess when recalls could happen

I would take the employment, there has been no increase in air travel and so until that happens we are currently over staffed even with the pilots we do have "active". I would expect more layoffs come July 1, 2020 if there is no minor increase in flying by July. Just be honest with your new employer...

Re: Is the 4 year flat pay worth it?

Well at least the first 4 posts were helpful :lol: :lol: To be honest, you'll need a bit of time prior to even applying to Jazz (they're hiring around 800-1500TT + Multi), and then if you're successful at Jazz there are 600+ pilots at Jazz waiting to go to AC who are by seniority going to go first....

Re: New hire bids

Any guesses if they would offer those in the Match 30th Gs a new start day when that time came? To be honest it will all depend on how long this takes to get "back to normal". Will depend on how long the recalls take, but honestly likely everyone in the pool will possibly have to re-apply if this l...

nope
What’s the deal then? They keep their seniority number, get furlough and their initial GS is to be completed on the callback?
Basically, a seniority number, 10 years of recall rights and then when they are recalled they will finish their initial training.

Re: Classic Dash replacement??

With COVID, can we expect 100% of the -100 to retire quicker than by the end of the year? 4 of the 6 have just been ferried to YYB over the last 3 days. The last two should be going to YYB this week and a few 300's will be sent out to YYC. (YYB where they will go to Voyageur and be parted out or st...

Any news on how many Jazz needs to layoff?
Initial numbers say 550 pilots before mitigations. That being said if provincial borders close then I expect to see that number jump much much higher. Unprecedented times ahead.

Re: Jazz Pilot Pool

April flying bid pack is out. From what it looks like every type at every base is 80-87.5 block hours a month.

This schedule was built early March.....so who knows how long this last but the flying has “increased” for Jazz.

It will all depend on how dramatic the containments get (provincial/city quarantines and business closures like Italy) and for the duration of how long this last. The low interest rates + relaxation of the mortgage stress test in April could lead to a sellers market and give a huge bump to house pri...
