With everything happening with GGN, and the latest GS bid, what would be the best way to snag a YYZ FO spot assuming that it's not a direct option?
Go to Encore😂😂

Mmm helpful haha. I hear that the classic might be the best option to get back to YYZ. Followed by the RJ and then the Q400. I'm trying to not commute for multiple, continuous years. :lol:

The GGN pilots in this most recent GS were not part of the MOS 4 group that will come over with their seniority. GGN pilots coming over with MOS 4 could be as early as July but likely Aug or later.

Most recent junior Captain position in YVR went to a pilot with 1 year seniority on the Q400 (effective Dec 1, 2019). (just for a reference for those wanting YVR)

1 Year for YUL DH8 Captain position as well just was awarded.

Does anyone know when HR selected people from the pool ,do they select candidates From other ALPA first , then after person with highest overall score? (ex. college degree, military experience ,ATPL , EFIS time,performance on sim,MMPI all being individual score?), if that is the case, candidates that has lowest point will they going to be remain in the pool forever? It seems like someone has been in the pool for almost a year and others got hired few weeks after their pool email.

Anyone from Jazz care to make an educated guess as to what the August bid will bring for the fall of 2019 into spring 2020 ?

My educated guess would be no bid for August. Only backfill.

Morning All. Just curious as to how the bidding works. I know you get your seniority at initial hire based on either the random draw or ALPA status. Once you get that assigned, are you able to bid on the Location/Aircraft preferred from first to last, or just the Aircraft preferred?

IMHO, I believe there will be a bid. Maybe not many new awards, but definitely a clean up of the Jan bid wrt Air Georgian integration.

On the first day they tell you available positions which is both location and aircraft then on the 2nd day after the seniority draw you pick what you want in order of seniority

How hard is to get YYC base nowadays, if not awarded on the initial GS?

YYC will depend on what type you get. If its DH8 it will be very hard as the DH8 is shrinking in YYC. To be honest it looks like the RJ and Q are shrinking in YYC as well, however, they are still backfilling for attrition to AC. What the future of the YYC base will look like in 2020 is anyones guess. Crazy stuff happens all the time. I'd say right now YYC base is anything from 2/3months to 12+ months to get into. All depends on who leaves for AC and what the bid in Aug will look like if there is one.

Hello Boys and girls! I am starting training soon and I was wondering if you guys happen to know how hard or easy it is to get a position in YUL. Let’s say I pick the RJ or Q400 somewhere else, what’s a reasonable time frame to expect a transfer back to YUL? Also for those who are ALPA members, how does that work?
Thank you guys! See you on the line!!
