Re: Fatigue is finally making the news

Exactly, pilots are the worse to assess their fatigue level. We are so goal oriented and don't want to disappoint our passenger, boss, and firstly ourselves! I had to use the Fatigue call a few times, and every time I felt stupid, and telling myself maybe I wasn't that tired, oh I'm letting my compa...

Re: New TA?

Why are you guys fighting so much over pension when the real issue to me is depreciation of working conditions and schedule. We should work less and make the same money. We should improve working conditions for the now while we are young and healthy. The way it goes you guys won't need the pension b...

Re: New CPA and flowthrough to Air Canada?

+1 teacher Also another problem is that there has been no movement in the last couple of years, more downgrade, base closures etc. Now with the flow to Ac we would see some movement, quicker upgrades and hopefully, the new hire won't be spending 10-15 years in the right seat.

Re: Renegotiating with Air Canada

Well, I think it would be only fair to have a certain incentive for the flow through to work. A guy that has been at Jazz let say for 6-7 years, he would get a big drop in pay and loose passes. So he decides to stay. Then the guy at Jazz for 6 months, still on first year pay has nothing to loose and...

Re: Renegotiating with Air Canada

If Air Canada trust Jazz to fly Air Canada`s passengers on their plane, why not trust Jazz pilots? Why not just make flow through with all the AC feeders. It would make sense no? If Jazz pilots are that bad, then Air Canada should not put their passengers on Jazz flights.
