Re: Sunwing hires Swoop

... It’s been a private company longer than WJ has been around My point exactly ace! Not a good comparison! Much older corporation, more aircraft types, mergers, acquisitions, assimilations, government bail-outs, much more everything! Yet, it has the lowest start rate with 4 long years of probation...

Re: August Equip Bid

When AC hires a large number of pilots from Jazz when are the vacant positions posted? I know there is lots of communication between both airlines with respect to just how many pilots should flow and when. Only a small number of Jazz pilots were hired at AC over the summer, where as the first (very...

Re: AC flow agreement

This is what I heard too. A friend of mine said they can basically count on being called at least twice a day, every day. Once for day stuff, once for the inevitable stand up. I think a lot of people have been putting themselves on the "no call" list. Rowdy, if you don't want to get called at 3AM b...

Re: Reverser Light Leads to Engine Shutdown

I will answer the technical aspect, as for how the crew ended up shutting it down and then restarted it, I can only speculate like the rest of you. As for the QRC(Quick reference checklist), both have you confirm the thrust lever and retard it to idle, the 200 has a retard system that actually bring...

The wording was there before. Sort of. The ability to bump was in the non-unionized WJPA mainline and Encore contracts from 2015. However, not included in those contracts was the very strong scope clause that now exists in the mainline ALPA contract. The contractual clauses issue that I have referr...

Re: Buffalo DC-3 Hay River

I think they ran out of fuel, first one quit, then shortly after the other.
Instead of declaring a fuel leak, the used the ass covering excuse, the old plane just couldn’t maintain altitude on one.
Of course, this is all in jest because I have no idea what happened

No one is getting “screwed”, they are not forced to accept the job, honestly does anyone accept responsibility for their choices anymore.

Just a correction, top 1/4 of the list retiring over the next 10 years, two years would be nice though.
