Until you lose one plane and you're out $37 million U.S. Those things are insanely expensive.

So who got woken up by the Nuclear alert? Seems like it was just sent in error.

Re: Swoop

The medical issue aside, was the arguing over the refunds really worth it in the long run? Why do soooo many organizations do this? The bad PR is never considered. That family will never fly Swoop again, and they’ll be sure their friends know. I had the same experience with a winery who flatly refu...

Not completely accurate.

They are not "making" that, they are guaranteed that (75 hour/mo) flying pay in the first year.

I thought they were currently getting 70 hours a month?

Currently showing 836 vacancies. That doesn't include retirements over the next year, fleet expansion, increased positions for new duty rules, etc.

Nor does it include the merger of Air Transat pilot however.

Re: The challenges for us all in flying green

Interesting that KLM's latest advertising suggests that you ask yourself if you really need to fly or not. It's obviously virtue signalling as I'm sure they did the math and realized they could put out something like this and it wouldn't hurt their bottom line. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4htp2...

I believe that is the truth for you Schnitzel but many AC pilots are forced to listen to their friends and acquaintances go through some kind of weird coping mechanism to justify why it's a good thing they never applied, or did and got PFO'd. So we tend to automatically tune out when someone starts ...
