What's the latest at AC

#1 Post by spdbrd » Sat Jun 12, 2004 8:55 pm

Any one know what is the latest new on AC? Are they calling back all the layed off pilots yet? I heard they were giving out early retirements to about 400 senior pilots. Any comments?

The lastest news I've heard about AC, though not layoff related, is that they are finally taking delivery of the 2 A340-500 aircraft. Originally ordered quite some time ago, along with 3 A340-600 aircraft, Air Canada was supposed to be the launch customer of the A345, but pushed back deliveries for the obivous.

First a/c to be delivered June 29th, with the second mid-July. After the initial proving routes, the A345 will be used on non-stop route of YYZ-HKG.

The 3 A346 a/c delivery has been pushed back to 2010.

172 AC pilots still on the street though many are working overseas and no call back expected anytime soon. Also last I heard still 143 out at Jazz.
