Re: Sunwing Interview Process

Is Calgary a Sunwing base, and if it is could a new hire expect to be based there? Calgary is a seasonal base which operates in the winter season only (October till May). A new-hire could probably get out there in their first season, but it varies year to year. Last year there were some vacancies l...

Re: myIDTravel

Could someone check the MyIDTravel website today and see if it is working for Air Canada tickets. I can't get through since last night(get an error message) but need to purchase a ticket very soon. Want to know if it is a problem at my end/company.

Re: Air Transat 737 Diversion to EWR Mar 9th

You claim above not to be questioning the crew's decision to evacuate. But in your every post that is exactly what you are doing, despite a positive outcome. Very helpful. Now you are simply being just a pompous ass, just for the sake of being one, misquoting other posters here. It sounds to me lik...

Cessna flipped over at Toronto Island

A few days old now but the pic, if expanded, seems to show the aircraft quite far off the runway.

Re: Pet Peeves?

It would be nice to have a policy from the mods to just delete the few posts that become a argument and keep the rest of the thread. Maybe they can do that with the one we are talking about and then delete this thread. Hate to see a good thread disappear.

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

I think most of the Swoop OTS guys are career F/Os chasing a left seat and that’s all that matters to them... Captainitis. Tb was an F/O in the sand box, an F/O at Canadian North, and an F/O at Sunwing. Went to the TSB and saw an opportunity for that coveted left seat at Swoop. Looks like he will b...

Due to your tenacious defence of AC's procedures, I will assume that you are correct Why do you still need to find some deficiency in AC’s procedures when this type of thing clearly happens to everybody?
