Re: A320 CA pay in Cathay Pacific after the "Paycut"

No point in sour grapes. Every person I've worked with at AC is smart and talented enough to have landed a job at Cathay if desired. I know because acquaintances of mine that did go...well let's say they would have struggled in Canada. How many at AC would trade their job today with an expat on a wo...

Re: COVID MOA 2

Yeah I don't think it's AC. This is perhaps some sneaky business. Jazz is doing a big portion of AC's actual flying right now. If someone bought them and put a stop to that AC would really be left scrambling to move passengers economically. It's probably just Trudeau and his little journalist become...

Re: Air Canada is in bad shape

Here’s an airline that finally gets it. https://mobile.twitter.com/WestJet/status/1319030076252487682?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Etweet I got my AirBNB refund 7 months ago without even talking to a human being. Aren't they just refunding tickets that sold as refundable? Somethin...

I really hope this Transat deal actually makes sense and is not part of some egotistical "legacy".

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

A quick look at the Transat seniority list reveals that even it is not strictly DOH based.

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

Does anyone know the rough breakdown of how many pilots Transat has based each in Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver?

Re: Appologies

I don't know what they want the regional pilots to do about it. Tell their company they're not doing the trip because it belongs to AC pilots? That's pretty silly and probably legal grounds for dismissal.

I don't think they mean get help as an insult. I think they genuinely hope he seeks professional assistance with his mental health.

Re: Rouge is back?

Can surplus pilots participate in equipment bids or are they stuck in their position until they are no longer deemed surplus? I assume that is when the first furloughed pilot is recalled. Or can they be deemed non-surplus before then?

Re: COVID MOA 2

I don't understand why they opened voting before the Q and A. I assume they weren't planning to have one but when 30% voted no they scrambled to educate the masses. After the Q and A the things everyone were freaking out about kind of seen like a nothing burger. If the MOA fails that's on ACPA for n...

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

Well said tailgunner.

If people are so concerned about some "genie out of the bottle" situation that can't be put back in with the end of the MOAs, well it already got let out 6 months ago anyways.

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

Re-evaluate at that time? I'm just trying to see where you're coming from. You're saying we should vote NO now because in 6 months, when it's time to vote again, we might not vote NO then?

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

Can you say why it doesn't snap back to contract in 6 months when the MOA ends? I haven't seen any of the doomsayers explain that yet.

For 6 months. I've yet to see any of the sky is falling alarmists explain how it doesn't snap back to contract at the end of the 6 months.
