  1. Employee Travel a Taxable Benefit?

    All a company would need to do is hold an "employee pricing" event once a year to get out of it.
  2. Death Of A Friend

    My condolences. After reading the story, I couldn't help but wonder if the fact that it was a cargo flight and, I suppose, there was nobody else onboard to attend to the Captain contributed to his death. The FO wouldn't be able to perform CPR or use an AED on him, would he? Even if he knew how? He would be too busy trying to get the thing down as soon as he could, would he not? Do pilots even get mandatory first aid training? If someone goes into cardiac arrest (I don't know if that's what happened here but for argument's sake let's use that scenario), you don't have a lot of time to treat them before it's too late. Would it not be prudent to have pilots trained in first aid if it's not done already, equip cargo aircraft with an AED and bag mask, and always have at least a 3rd person who is also trained in first aid onboard in case something like this occurs? That way the casualty doesn't have to wait until the other pilot gets the aircraft to an airport before getting the help he needs, help that might be too late in coming. All of this may already be done, but the story sounded like it was just the two of them so I wondered if anything could have been done were there a flight attendant or other person who could have been doing CPR while the FO did the flying.
  3. Swoop??

    Standing next to my stool in anticipation...pardon the pun.
  4. Swoop?? AC's response will be an Ultra Low Cost Fare (ULCF), instead of launching a new ULCC, it would seem.
  5. Perfect. We can transfer the shares into our TFSA without cashing them in so they continue to grow there.
  6. Glad I transferred everything to my TFSA last year..and continued to do so every month when the new shares came in.
  7. The more the pilot group agrees to expand rouge, the more the flight attendant group shoulders their burden of the cost savings by expanding the percentage of the rouge numbers versus mainline. Besides the Service Director, we make no more money flying wide body than narrow. Would that cover the two groups if the pilot group has protected wide body flying (better pilot pay, in general) versus narrow body flying (lower pilot pay, in general) in exchange for expanding rouge? We'll see.
  9. Neologism

    In other words, family.
  10. And a two year old article...
  11. AC7 30Aug?

    In a statement from Air Canada, the airline said the flight was forced to turn back due to a hydraulic indication. The flight landed normally. “As per standard operating procedures and as a precautionary measure, the crew requested airport services presence. Passengers re-departed a few hours later on another aircraft.”

    Says Servisair on the tug and van so that's where I got that from.
