Re: Jazz wrapping up groundschools

Jazz will hire at the rate of pilot attrition less any reduced flying requirements. Same for AC.

For those not paying attention, the music is now slowing down.

Re: YYZ embraer F/O

And with the way things are now, bidding the left seat after one or two years in is doable if you don't mind some reserve. This still implies that every single new-hire will have this opportunity which is obviously not the case. Having said that, first year narrowbody Capt opportunities could only ...

Re: Air Canada reassessing schedule due fuel costs

I may be wrong but................... has anybody ever seen WJA have to wait for a ramp crew? Makes no sense to save hundreds of pounds of fuel through efficient descent planning and single engine taxi-in just to watch kerosene evaporate metres from your parking spot :cry:

Re: Air Canada reassessing schedule due fuel costs

There is no doubt that AC will use the 'pilot wars' as a bargaining tool to maintain downward pressure on the pilot contract. The big difference this time is that AC/ACE no longer own nor control Jazz. Further, absent a sustainable invocation of 'force majeure' by AC, the CPA contract is closed unde...

No it is not. However, the triennial rate setting exercise is underway. Not the same thing.

Re: Jazz flies where AC tells it to fly. AC does not want into Y

Jazz flies where AC tells it to fly. AC does not want into YTZ either - they just want Porter to go away (from rudder) So I guess it won't bother AC JAZZ that Porter is planning a new terminal at the island airport. Maybe spending all that money on the infrastructure and new planes will bankrupt th...

Wrong.

Re: April 7th course

If you read the articles closely, you will see the parties that are claiming that they will be largely unaffected are representatives for AC and WJ themselves, not the analysts. I do not doubt that it will be a softer landing in Canada. But make no mistake - the boom is over. There is quite a contra...

Re: April 7th course

US majors are all shutting down hirng, reducing domestic capacity by double digits, and somehow AC will be immune to all of this? Sure - just like after 9/11.

Re: Air Canada's unions ready to 'Walk the Line in '09'

ok, maybe it's been asked before, but I don't remember. Will Jazz pilots picket with AC pilots when it comes time, or will they be flying their asses off? If history is the teacher, the answer is clear. During the last AC pilot strike, the connector line pilots did not fly a single flight on a stru...

Re: Air Canada's unions ready to 'Walk the Line in '09'

There is alternative domestic service on most routes and certainly 100% of the destinations that AC serves within Canada. Similarly, there are alternatives to AC to arrive at transborder and international destinations. It is Jazz that is the sole service provider using AC code to many medium and sma...
