AC dangles a juicy carrot and hundreds of guys go for it as they welcome a bit fat whipsaw.

This deal stinks.
What's the deal? I haven't heard anything yet? Can you please attach a link to your paranoia?

Re: New CPA and flowthrough to Air Canada?

@loopa Jazz is only sinking if the water level drops due to like-minded pilots like you keep taking jobs at cheap companies like Sky Regional, Georgian and like you say, eventually Jetlines. Jazz has a pension, a strong union, and probably 1200 or more pilots who dont want to flow to AC and just wan...

Re: Any hiring news??

Why would anyone want to board a sinking ship? What report did you read? Someone once said: "If you have the chance at any flying job, take it right away. You will progress your career a lot quicker than holding out for anything in particular at that stage." Reference: Krimson, not so long ago. Mos...

Re: New CPA and flowthrough to Air Canada?

We don't know who will pick up the slack from Jazz, but my bet is with the three other AC regionals, and maybe even a new one. There will likely be a lot more progression for pilots there. Safe flying! Very good post. Don't mean to go off topic, but it kind of starts a new debate where Jetlines and...

Re: Jazz pilot migration

Will ACPA welcome Jazz pilots with open arms? Do they still have a say in the matter? Or did they cash in their opinion when they signed the new agreement?

This will be interesting to see play out!

Yes, the first reaction is "good news", but all we know is that Jazz will not die in 2020. Good for Jazz!

Who at Jazz will it benefit? Pilots? Management? Senior? Junior? Only the TA will tell!

Re: Proposed Flight Crew Fatigue Regs

If it did, if the truth of fatigue VS performance ment anything in the real world of Canadian aviation regulation; pilots would be legislated, restricted, to working an 8-eight hour day. Not a Flight-Duty-Day, Not Duty-Hours, but a "WORK-DAY". An 8 hour duty day? How would that possibly work in Can...

Re: Congratulations Jazz

Some would call it 'concessions', others would call it 'change'. Either way, status quo will not prevail for the CPA between CHR and AC nor will status quo prevail in the collective agreements in force at Jazz. I would guess that AC expects a degree of cost change at Jazz that mirrors what has tran...

An impressive recovery would be to offer unlimited passes for travel during cancer treatment! They bought a ticket on the flight and deserve the same travel of the other passengers!

As I didn't want to be on hold for an hour waiting to talk to someone I just went ahead and booked it. After booking you can choose a preferred seat ("Rouge Plus") for $42 each way (at least on YVR-LAX), which gives 35in of legroom. There's about 6 rows of these seats, so there shouldn't be a probl...
