Georgian AD

Post by Hilroy » Tue Aug 13, 2019 8:08 pm

Why is Georgian still advertising all over the place for pilots?

What's their plan post AC Express contract?

It’s not a rumour. It’s a fact. Hence the delay in the RJs coming back to Jazz.

I would guess a series of short extensions depending on the status of the 737 Max at the time. Georgian still has to uphold their contract until it ends so they must have an inflow to maintain crew numbers.

All of the GGN planes need to be on Jazz property by Jan 31, 2020 as per the agreement. You'd be crazy to think that GGN will get that CPA contract again lol.
The GGN pilots are filling GS's at Jazz as we speak.

You'd have to be pretty desperate to apply to ggn in the first place, nevermind receive a call first and accept the offer.

By the end of it ggn should still have 6 RJs that are "theirs". Currently they are leasing a white one from avmax I believe.

GGN looks good on paper, and social media ads, they sell a good con at career fairs. Give the person a few months to figure out that Air Canada pulled out for a reason . It's called safety .

True. I think they are keeping the old -100’s. They also still have many 1900’s but will they have work for them?

It’s silly to expect them to just roll over and die like that. The company will seek work elsewhere and I imagine they will find it somehow. Look at it from a more personal level, it’s not like the GGN pilots who are hypothetically laid off at the end of the AC Express contract will just quit flying forever over it.
