  1. There are very few issues that I would consider dropping tools for, this is definitely one of them.
  2. Some very smart people are finally pushing back, Ben Shapiro and Dr Jordan Peterson to name two. The Left Wing nut-jobs are doing all they can to squash free speech, ANTIFA being at the far end. If you are not familiar with these two gentleman, they both have a lot of YouTube content. Time to push back for the sake of the next generation, these aren't just angry old white guys Dagger. Ben Shapiro is early 30's, there are people with common sense, but they are getting afraid to speak out. Time to tell them to go sc@ew themselves!
  3. The left wing, Politically Correct psychos cannot change basic biology, there are only two sexes. Identify with what ever you like, but we are running out of letters with the "LGB....." "Ladies and Gentlemen" and "Merry Christmas" are top of my list. I have been thanked countless times for wishing the passengers a Merry Christmas over the PA.
  4. Fixed - Thanks, Jet Lag brain at work.
  5. Transat is AC's largest competitor on the Atlantic, I suspect they are concerned "whose hands" the Airline lands in.
  6. Nice to see how many successfully got their carry-on luggage off, while others were unable to escape the fire.
  7. Anybody know how many Pilots Transat has?
  8. Longranger, I will stand behind the post. Don't forget we now work with ex-WJ'ers on a regular basis, the dirty laundry is being hung to dry. If you re-read the CUPE newsletter, you'll see that it was WJ Management that has asked the FA's to 'write up' Pilots. To CUPE's credit they are advising against it. Pay comparable to AC, how's the 787 pay working out, or how about the Encore pay scale?
  9. Here's my take on it Kip, from having a good friend who was "original equipment." WJ played the "we are all equal" game pretty successfully, the Pilot's held their noses and groomed the Airplanes and then went home and counted their money. The early days of big profit share cheques and fast upgrades. Times have changed and now the WJ Pilots are quitting in droves, with many coming to AC, some going overseas and even (who would have ever guessed) Sunwing. On a recent flight with an ex-WJ'er, he described it as a Black Culture with a tattle tail environment of "writing up" your fellow employee as outlined in the CUPE newsletter. If you're not a good little do-bee we'll send you in for re-programming. I have also been told that the original casual uniform was done by design, there was a feeling that having the Pilots wear the traditional double breasted Tunic with gold stripes would encourage the Pilots to feel they were above the masses. The casual Uniform and grooming Airplanes was all part of the social experiment. Well 23 years down the road times have changed, pay is average (to well below at Encore and Swoop,) upgrades at Mainline are a long wait and profit share cheques have dried up. AC is hiring gangbusters with fast upgrades and we don't need knee patches on our slacks. Next few years are going to be fun to watch, here's hoping they open the US border to Canadian Pilots.
  10. The first time I saw a WestJet Pilot on his knees grooming, I was disgusted. I am glad there is finally some push back!
