I think Schwartz, AKA Onex, is not stressing about the current issues. They are looking a year or two out, and seeing lots of opportunities.

Re: Will Westjet survive?

Re: Layoffs

Best case a few people wanna fly 6 mos from now. It will be years to get back where we were. The economy will be the dictator and the virus will slow the recovery. I’ll bet the concessions will sadly continue as we haven’t hit bottom yet. Right now the virus is the dictator. We are on a COVID-19 ti...

Re: Westjet Delta JV

And here we are now, March 23, 2020 and the real question is: how many jobs will be left after the virus is defeated (IF) and how long will it take to get back to square "1"? The virus will be defeated. There is no doubt about that. This will be a long drawn out recovery...this pandemic is of a sca...

Re: Who's gotten a lay off?

The United States is on path of this virus spreading drastically. The spread in the United Kingdom is similar to Italy in numbers and timelines. Many other countries are the same. Broken health care systems are going to make this worse. Airlines in North America will exit this crisis not the same th...

Stay Positive

Fellow aviators, These are troubling and unprecedented times. It stinks but such is life and the careers we made a choice to pursue in a delicate industry.

Re: WestJet Group Hiring Freeze

If a furlough does happen in the most worst case scenario and pilots are not flying during that time and staying current, what happens then? Example: Furloughed for a year ... and no flying.
