Re: Swoop pilot hiring.

If people don't want to work at Swoop, don't go to work at Swoop. This is basic economics and the right of citizens of a free society. WJ came along 21 years ago and brought sustainable competition to the airline market in Canada which provided consumers with choice, and in many, many cases brought ...

Re: No guaranteed flow through?

Rudder, how could WJ use Swoop to fly all WJ planes? WJ is transforming itself into a higher level service provider to its business customers. Swoop is an ULCC where passengers will be charged for everything. How can one be the other?

Re: Swoop pilot hiring.

Well, if you decide to strike, it would be illegal and your union would be fined. You should know that prior to certification, a deal was almost completed that would have staffed SWOOP airplanes with WJ pilots, albeit at the reduced rate, and in exchange for every SWOOP tail one widebody would be br...

Re: Hiring off the street any time soon?

Hey NCP. I guess you won't have to worry about paying all that tax on that huge gross income you're making, due to a lot of OT. Just take a look at Jetstar and what happened to Qantas. All that juicy OT will be long gone. That Swoop skipper will soon be doing it for you. That way you'll have more t...

Re: Hiring off the street any time soon?

Just a stubborn, ignorant executive group.

Why would you say that? Since when do pilots run companies or decide business strategy. Come to think of it, what do you know about running airlines?

Re: 10 year take home pay

I'm a guy who likes facts. Maybe there's others out there who like facts, and not just propaganda. One of the facts that I really like is the fact that my taxable gross income for the 14 day period that ended 5 January 2018 was $25,153.34. As a line pilot. For 14 days of work. Of course this was mon...

JBI, do you have a background in the STEM fields? I don't want to button hole you, but I'm trying to get a feel for where your biases (we all have them) may be.

And to correct you, I never mentioned anything about gender roles, only gender based pay gap illusions.
