Re: L1011

I can’t recall the exact date, but I do remember operating AC870 from YMX to CDG one night. We were only in cruise about 30 minutes when we had to shut down #3. I don’t recall why we shut it down but it was doing a lot of farting and blowing a bunch of flame and sparks out the back end. Anyway we ci...

Re: Upgrade times and pay.

3 Asia’s a month you’re done in 9-10 days. Becomes more of a part-time job. I'm thinking that even 3 a month could be somewhat of a drag? Up at 0700 local home time, off to the airport, leave at noon for a ?15?hour flight, check into hotel at 0400 body time, and try to sleep. Wake up 4 hours later,...

Re: Feet mobilization at AC

Others can answer your question a lot better than me, but suffice it to say that you will probably never be forced off your base. Using the example you give, if you are based in YYZ as a 767 FO and Air Canada moves all the 767 flying to another base, you can stay in YYZ and bid onto another aircraft...

Re: I was genuinely embarrassed for them

Couldn't believe this. There I was on a gorgeous day up in the flight levels, not a cloud in sight, when a flight checks in with ATC not far from my position and requests a block of altitudes. Now, bear in mind that this airline checking in exclusively flies a type that's well known for its docile ...
