Do you own a calculator? 50 MMG has a huge impact.

It does but didn’t stop many from bumping down, the majority of Encore spots are now jets drivers that bumped down. If the MOA was a plan to stop that it didn’t work. Westjet will now have a huge training cost.

Nothing is for sure until they’re are actually Jet guys in the Dash sim. I think they’re are more games to be played yet.

There is another wild card in play, most here probably so focussed on the seniority issues they are missing the big picture.

May 20 WTI oil contract is bidding at under 5 bucks right now. On Friday I thought 18 was as low as oil could go. This morning when it opened at 11, I said no way it can go lower. A little while ago I posted in another thread that it was bidding at 8 bucks, couldn't possibly go lower. Right now, bid is 4.95.

If this keeps up, it may be cheaper to run 737 on encore routes for a couple months rather than run courses for dash 8.

And Alberta Select was about negative $3.00 this morning. Paying the refineries to take your crude.

It only strengthens us and the company. WJ has to wait for the encore TA to wrap up is my guess and glad the WJ MEC has stopped playing games to get this rolled out.
Not sure this statement (underlined, in bold) has aged well, given the “B” scale at Encore.
It’s not a B scale. It’s a regional airline pay scale, not a jet pay scale. If someone at mainline doesn’t like what is offered to them at Encore, they are not forced into it. It’s a choice. Don’t like it? Take a layoff instead.

Think of it this way, if the one list was not around then 737 pilots would be forced into a layoff. Now they have the OPTION to take a position at ENcore instead and continue to accrue YOS. Please explain how that is worse than a layoff??

WestJets biggest problem...ALPA, and the incompetence that their decisions made by those to represent and make the best decisions for ALL its members.
