Re: Well that didn’t take long for Swoop FA’s to unionize

Debating about the flight attendant profession is pointless. While the job itself isn't over taxing, it can be, like ours. Now there is nothing wrong with doing it as a career, with A good solid wage. Now comparing them to nurses is also pointless. Watching my wife go through her nursing program I c...

Re: Westjet mainline commuting

With exception of the hiring ban which came first - the list above is frankly unacceptable. Tbalx - you’re calling out the conduct of others yet seem to believe that your own conduct somehow doesn’t matter. You and your kind have behaved far from exemplary. You pissed in people’s cornflakes and the...

Re: Westjet mainline commuting

Honestly it'll depend on managements attitude about adopting a westjet like mentality. There will be a lot of westjet pilots who are accustomed to certain things and will push to make those changes. Given that and how many pilots could leave for greener pastures (AC) I think there is a real possibil...

Re: Does Anyone Have a Dog?

Dont get one until your stable in your career and settled down with a partner who wants a dog and is home when you're not. Puppies need as much work as babies, they need constant attention, patience and training. Leave your dog alone and you're in for destroyed property and behavioral problems. Want...

Re: Westjet mainline commuting

I dare say that will change pretty quick. As more westjet pilots flood into those positions, that will be a priority. Its also in managements best interest to turn this into a lifestyle job to help attract and retain pilots.

I'm not a ywg commuter but I do know the pilots that live there and bid ywg layovers get a lot of them. The pay sucks but standby for new atis message on that front (CBA in sept). Regardless of what you hear it is a solid job and honestly I think the tide will turn morale wise. Even at its worst thi...

Re: They were going to lock everyone out and shut the doors?

I mentioned this when the strike vote happened but a strike vote is not a just a negotiation tool, as was repeated here a few times. It has real and immediate consequences to the company. WestJet was losing millions in bookings under the threat of a strike. Did the pilot group really think that Wes...

Re: Gloom & Doom Q2 outlook...are you kidding?

The Labour Minister intervened to cause this agreement. Sounds like force majaure. Further, WestJet never intentionally misrepresented their offer to Swoop pilots. It was WestJet's full intention to have it flown by OTS pilots in order to extract concessions from Mainline. WestJet had no idea this ...

If this was 10-15 years ago I would have said no way can you start a career in aviation and not leave the GTA. This is a vastly different time.
