    WestJet 787

    Charlotte NC is a huge hub for American. They move 25 million people through there a year. From a city smaller than Calgary with a population of 800,000. Sometimes it’s not about the city itself.
  2. That is a very short runway for a 737-800. 6000’. Not much room for error although which makes undershooting the runway plausible.
  3. I think we've been in the "big leagues" for some time now. Why does every issue and change at WJ elicit this response every single time?

    Westjet pilots strike vote

    I don't think the DEC's will have much of a leg to stand on to sue given that they were hired in the midst of an unfair labour suit. If they end up BOTL it will be simply from a base bid not unlike any other base bid which has displaced pilots at any other airline. If they were to be dismissed outright I think they'd have a better chance of going through a grievance process. Right now they are being "used" simply to ensure a successful startup and shouldn't take that to mean their services as DEC's are secure going forward.

    Norwegian Coming to Canada

    I wonder if they'll create a pilot base in Canada like they have in the US? Things are about to get interesting although their expansion is precarious if there was a downturn in the world economy.
  6. Things don't look great here. Future earnings paying for current operations.... http://crankyflier.com/2018/02/20/norwegians-awful-2017-shows-mounting-challenges-to-the-business/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

    Westjet Changes Service from YXY

    It might be "salaried" but a 24 or 48 hour layover means that credit loss has to be made up for sometime in the month which significantly impacts fatigue. Same with low credit pairings.
