Curious, with all the talk and hostility towards SWOOP, none towards Link? Isn't there a clause in the current WJ.contract that says all flying under the westjet name including affiliates and subsidiaries is to be done by westjet pilots?

Probably because Pasco pays more than encore

No pilots I assume. Sucks for Pasco to lose this work. Maybe just offer a lot more money than Encore.

Seems more like Pasco can't get the planes and crew to do the job in the time they agreed

Are they bringing in extra aircraft? They recently parted out one more Saab and returned another to the lessor

They need more. Word is they are robbing Peter to pay Paul by taking the Saabs from their ops in BC to send them to YYC to do Link flying. Plus they are STILL (and continuously) advertising for crews. Just yesterday they listed again
