I am unable to comment on the CSA’s as I have not been able to find any comments anywhere about what they will be doing. If history repeats we will see a Swoop base pay structure for them if it does not already exists.
CSA in YXX said many of them are being let go.... CSA work for Swoop is going to be provided by the same contract company that runs Flair.. Go figure. haha. They might keep one WJ employee on as a "base manager" but the rest of them are sol. Taking care of our people at its finest.

Does that put Flair CSAs on some sort of scab list?
Or what about those Westjet CSAs who instead of working at Earl’s, go work at Flair?
Man this is getting messy!

Don't worry. As long as JS / NCP / WeedPro2000 / Proud#1 Scab can make his $300k+ as a 737 skipper with ample OT, everything is good. Keep your head in the sand, nothing to see here.....

On a more serious note, really sad to hear that. Culture is getting decimated on a weekly basis around this place. There are some really good long-term YXX employees that will be let go because of this. Doubtlessly other stations will soon be Swooped, in the same way numerous quality station people got Encored circa 2013-2014-2015-2016.

On a lighter note - thought Swoops poop news was pretty funny.

Wonder if the flight crew get credits to use the lav.

That has to be an april fools joke!
I heard that Ryanair was planning to charge for the lav some years ago. Not sure if they went through with it.

Just leave the your turds in the seat. The groomer will come by after the flight and clean it up anyway. :|

The timing of the news would indicate a joke, but the way all thus has been going down doesn't surprise me.

The method Ryanair uses is well known. Make an outlandish claim like taking out all the seats and installing hold straps from the ceiling! Pack more people on the plane. It gets them two weeks of free advertising as all the news networks pick up the story.

Still works, does it not!!!!!

Can anyone confirm if there have been layoffs at WestJet due to swoop? I’m thinking CSA’s...

At the CAE facility in YYZ this week there is a ground school going on for Scoop. Room looked full walking by. Was also a banner up from CAE welcoming them as a new client. Guess they are contracting out all the training for pilots too.

I’m curious to know if the CSA’s in YXX will be doing swoop flights? If not the writing is on the wall, with Swoop replacing WestJet flight out of YXX it’s only a matter of time now.

Apparently it’s being contracted to the same company doing Flair flights 🤮
