Re: TA Passed.

mb, Dollar for dollar, the US regionals have more buying power. Whats forty trump bucks worth here? 40x 1.3 = $52. Even lowest paid Tjet at $37/hr is $48hr canadian.

Re: SWOOP - A New Hires Future

Ok so here's a question. Bill C-86's equal pay for equal work clause was brought up in a thread about jazz and ggn. Would swoop employees be able to use that to force mainline rates on swoop aircraft given that it's the exact same job through the same employer? This seems to be the exact thing that...

Re: Wil Jazz hire with instructing time only?

Pretty much anyone can make it a Jazz training program. Is it right? No, but it's reality. What do you mean?! That the reality is the most of the new hires are young and inexperienced.

Re: Jazz Payscale Updated 2019

LOL @ rich kids with nicely gelled hair... The FO demographic at Jazz is pretty well all single early to mid 20's rich kids with nicely gelled hair who get help from mom and dad and live at home or with roommates.

Re: A message to all GGN Pilots from a Jazz Pilot

Execs on the negots committee are saying don't count on there being flying in a year from now. Interesting how Ggn management are telling everyone that their seniority can be deferred to jazz when it aint true. I guess they just want to fill the seats until their last day of CPA flying. Sounds like...

Re: TA Passed.

How does the contract at Jazz compare to Encore? There is a graphic out there of Jazz (old rates and new rates), GGN, Skyregional and Encore. It is not pretty. Jazz looks a little bad FO 1-4 but after that Jazz is light years above the others. Here we go again. Look past the starting pay. Encore ha...

Re: Jazz Payscale Updated 2019

At least someone can have a life in Vancouver, even on 38k. 55k up north doesn’t matter if you have nothing but beer to spend it on. A lot of junior regional pilots are just toughing it out, because in the long run, one can make a $200k+ a year in 705 with a great pension and lifestyle to boot. Bet...

Lol. I made 55k my first year working up north. I’m glad you cucks are thrilled with living in YVR for 38K. (Edit) Actually with inflation it was 61k. Problem is you lived "up north"... Not for everyone, no matter how much my last two bosses offered me to stay (secret, it wasn't a small amount) it ...

Re: Jazz Payscale Updated 2019

If anyone here thinks 38K is an OK wage for a starting position with any Airline, regardless of how much time you have, is an idiot. After spending the time and huge amount of money to get a pilots licence and start under 55k is bad enough but 38K these days?!! Have a little self worth... Pilots(id...

Won’t happen And the disappearance of GGN as an a Express carrier was not going to happen. GGN was going to get CRJ900’s and expand. That WAS the AC plan. Wonder what changed? I will go with 50/50 that there will be just 1 Express operating certificate within 24 months. What just happened? In the j...

Picking up 1 day of OT a month goes a long way for you guys! 129.98 X 1.5 (OT) X 4.5 (min day) = 877.16 1 a month will get you a greasy $10500 extra a year!

$38,400 while living in YVR or YYZ. Hahahahaha Could almost afford a parking spot downtown, not enough to get a car to live in though. Maybe a tent off Kijiji.

Re: Jazz Payscale Updated 2019

How will Jazz be overstaffed while sending 240+ pilots (0.6 x 400) to AC over the next 12 months plus adding 5 CRJ900’s prior to year end? I guess. We're also losing 15 -100s and a bunch of Qs. Who knows I guess we'll see after the bid is over. Isn't the 0 100's in 2019 just a minimum? We've been o...
