Hey Jazz guys. This is a Westjet section, if you wanna post Westjetty things that's fine, but if you wanna masturbate to Jazz, then do it in the Jazz section.

I did post something Westjetty, I told Hans to apply to swoop. Sometimes things change direction for a bit, you don’t own AvCanada, do like I do, skip through a post I don’t care to read problem solved.
BTW, I don’t think Westjetty applies anymore, at least not what that used to mean.
Blacktusk, congratulations on your upgrade, my comments were directed at hans, although I suppose you agreed with him.
I am one of those pilots who is on table 1 who missed the cutoff and no longer have C2 passes, well 2 or 4 a year, I never use them so I don’t know. I am also very soon going to be on table 2 when I turn down AC, guess what I signed up for it so you’ll never hear me bitch and moan about it, I knew the risk and put my name on the list, other than pension and upgrades on DH, behind every single AC employee who started last week FYI, what do I have you don’t, so don’t give me that shit. I’ve lost things as well.

Alcoholism: Are you drunk again? Swoop is just as far away from Westjetty, as Jazz is, and yes, mbav8r did tell me to apply at Swoop. I will if everyone else turns me down. I gotta stop being myself in interviews. I don't know how I ended up fooling Jazz. All those years up North in the freezing cold turned my passion and love (aviation) into an epic disappointment!

Yes

And for all the doom and gloom, Swoop will be flown by Westjet pilots, just a lil game by ol GS. The bottle told me so.

I'd say DB pension and DH upgrades are something? Not to mention you having the opportunity to "turn down AC."

2 or 4 C2 passes are still more than my zero. I do actually use my passes and a C2 would have helped me when I got bumped in Frankfurt.

And thanks I'm looking forward to making a living wage, finally.
The quick upgrades won't be here forever, I feel bad for those who will have to wait years only to drop to year one on the Captain list. I count myself very lucky.

For the pilots who are thinking about leaving a good job for Swoop, the Wj pilots and WJ management have a very large disagreement in the hiring of pilots at Swoop. The pilots are backed by their previous (WJPA) agreement and ALPA. This dispute will be contested with the utmost vigor. The Intial Swoop roster will be entirely different than the eventual Swoop roster after the full process is complete.

Just Sayin.

Those who don't know history are doomed to repeat it. In this case, WestJet's executives have decided the airline they want run is Air Canada under Robert Milton. We all saw it. Why anyone would want to go there is something I don't understand. Bankruptcy, penny stock prices, a demoralized workforce and a public who would do anything rather than fly on Air Canada... an attitude that opened the door for WestJet's very existence.
Ok, I missed that someone else was a BSG fan. Are you one of the 6's?

I would like to spend some quality time with the 6's and 8's.
