Jazz Up Grade Times

#1 Post by zipper » Wed May 03, 2017 5:55 am

Hi,

Could anyone shed some light on how long it takes to upgrade to left seat at Jazz? (Assuming someone has an ATPL and 1000hrs DHC8-100 time)

The upgrade isn't really about how much time you have in your logbook. As long as you have an ATPL and the seniority to hold it you will get awarded the spot. At the moment, I think upgrades are the fastest in YVR. The wait is around the 12-16 month seniority mark out there.

We'll see how this next little bid goes to confirm whether or not upgrades are going to happen at the 1-2yr mark. I still think it was an anomaly. If I were a betting man, I'd say around 2-5years, assuming AC continues to hire via the PML.

I flew with the Sr union member the other day. I asked him what his he thinks the upgrade times will be on this new bid. He said he wouldn't be surprised to see 6-8 months.

I also know a few people who took the left seat upgrade off their bid in fear that Jazz will hold them for two years before letting them go to AC if they get the offer.

We'll see in a few weeks.
