Re: Air Canada "haute cuisine" and incidence of Crew diarrhea?

Message for the OP. Maybe you should do some test for food intolerances. I discovered few years ago that I was or became intolerant to lactose. Those crew meal providers have very high standards and it is doubtful that you are getting food poisoning. You are not lactose intolerant. You're just not ...

Re: When do you think the 737 MAX will return to operation at Air Canada?

It takes decades to gain trust, seconds to lose it -and years to regain it. Boeing and FAA execs should be held criminally responsible with manslaughter. The 737 will never be (re) certified in its current state. Even if it does, passengers will avoid it like the plague- leading to its eventual fail...

Re: Career First Officer at AC by design?

Not to mention a Southwest newhire makes more than a 5 year pilot at AC and works fewer hours. Pathetic. As is that pay stub above. An American 787 FO makes 350.000 US ~(464.000CAD) and has more time off and better working condiotions.

Re: L1011

We used to fly them from LHR to YQX then on to YHZ in the early 80's (AC860). The company later switched it it over to YYT. Imagine that- A widebody from London to Gander as a scheduled route!

Re: Basic AC information for beginners

4. I also think you are not allowed to ever bid a downgrade. This means that if you chose to go captain early, you can never bid down to the right seat ever again.

Re: American Express (Premium Plaza) Lounge will now require a boarding pass

Saw the writing on the wall a long time ago. I did not renew the card.
Some crew members had absolutely zero class and ruined the experience for everyone.
Getting one card and dishing out supp cards? How low can you go?
Simply embarrassing...Good on Amex for enforcing new rule.

Re: American Express credit card w/lounge access?

Not worth it in my opinion. I f you want to eat healthy, you have to look after yourself, which means packing your own food. Lounge and airport restaurant food in general is smack full of sodium and trans-fats etc etc.
The lounge used to be a relaxing quiet place to sit. Not anymore....

Re: What do you think of the new uniforms?

I think allowing facial hair is a huge mistake.
Also, the uniform police need to be out in full force.
There are many slobs out there and it reflects poorly on the brand and your fellow colleagues..
Passengers see and notice much more than you think.
