Re: OTS WesJet Mainline FO

One thing your average Encore pilot won’t tell you is that during their interview they were asked if they understood the “One List?” They were also made to understand that the list was nothing more than a handshake and was not enshrined in anything. It was also made clear that it could go away. Long...

Re: One List

The list of people getting screwed as you declare does not expand with time.

People not yet hired have no entitlement to anything. Anyone starting these days knows fully that they are walking into a quagmire of seniority problems.

Frankly the number of pilots potentially affected is fixed.

Re: New WestJet FO

I don't think people are slagging pilots who jump from WS to AC to chase a better future. I think the point is that if you've been around long enough you know that nothing is for certain in this biz. A jump to AC may not work out as intended - that's all. No ill will to anyone who's trying to make i...

Re: New WestJet FO

Interesting post KAG.

Many did the fast dash to AC with eyes on a quick upgrade...

Now all of that is up in the air with a merged seniority list if the deal goes through.

This only thing that is certain in this business is uncertainty.

Best of luck to all.

The exercise used the roller coaster technique as a way to intervene from the same point when the Ethiopian pilots turned the Stab Cut Out switches off...

Re: Swoop WestJet Captain Bid/Late Schedules?

Don’t even bother arguing with Tbalyx.

He has yet to put a concise argument forward since last summer.

Every thing he’s ever stated about Swoop has been completely shot down.

Move along.

Re: SWOOP - A New Hires Future

Ok, but here lies the hypocrisy in that - why is it ok for anyone at WJ/Encore to bid onto Swoop? Why do they get a pass? Why aren't they accused of "lowering the bar"? It's a little disingenuous to discredit an OTS pilot for lowering the bar when WJ pilots line up for the same position. Hi pot, me...

Re: Grooming Update

Complexintentions,

I think pilots have the expectation that their employers uphold the deal they agreed too.

They're not snotty or entitled - they're tired of the goal posts getting moved again.
