Re: Retirement Wave

I know what it means. So for somebody starting today with every WestJet FO and Swoop pilot ahead of them going back to 2010 waiting for a captain spot and possibly every Encore pilot ahead of them too, and a company that isn’t expanading very fast it will probably be until 2037 or very close to it t...

Re: New WestJet FO

What is the outlook for a new WJ FO in 2019? Starting pay and progression? Seniority for upgrade in relation to Encore/Swoop pilots? Number of years to get a Vancouver base?
