  1. The outrage culture is alive and well...and they film everything now to show how evil airline employees are (after some creative editing of course. Kind of like saying "Don't believe me? Look it up in Wikipedia, just give me five minutes").
  2. Let's hope they give Rosen the room he needs to enact change.

  4. Maybe WJ and AC should just try to "out nice" each other. At least that would be a positive and productive competition with no real losers.
  5. Estimated...this is the government we're talking about here.
  6. There might be some hanger rash on the wingtips...but yeah, it can be done
  7. I've always been a fan of this one.
  8. Q1 results and 787 order (page 8) https://www.westjet.com/assets/wj-web/documents/en/about-us/financialReports/WestJet2017Q1-Report.pdf
  9. Almost all the comments below big wreck videos heap praise on Big Wreck for their originality and musicianship. I was a fan when they released their first album "In Loving Memory" and thought all was lost when they split after their sophomore effort. It was good to see them back in fine form and earning deserved praise. On a side note, Canada has really been pumping out some real six string talent of late. Nick Johnston, Ian Thornley and Ariel Posen are getting international attention. Pedal makers Page, Diamond and Radial are staples on the effects scene as well. Must be the effect of being indoors 6-8 months a year with nothing else to do but play guitar
  10. That was quick....
  11. Since bill C4 went back to the house and a vote is still required (still can't certify with just a card count), I'll imagine we'll see a vote soon...assuming they have the numbers they claim to.
  12. You're definitely kickin it more old school inside that missed approach point. A lot of the "magic" disappears.
  13. Hi blues. There is no path past the missed approach point on that particular approach. It has to be...for the most part...hand flown. Maybe we're asking the wrong question. While there's no denying they were closer to the ocean at that point, how low were they on the desired profile? Looking at the two videos, they don't seem that much higher on the second approach which is compounded by the lack of references between the water and the overcast sky. just tossin it out there.
  14. Just from memory (so take it for what it's worth), the MAP is a few miles back from the runway and VNAV is useless as the aircraft reverts to a lower level of automation. This does catch some by surprise, but it's a non-issue if you plan for it.
  15. They kicked that stone down the road once already and didn't use the time to come up with a solution. Kicking it again by changing the retirement age won't necessarily help unless they; -Encourage the colleges to increase output to meet demand. -Update the ab initio training syllabus to get these candidates real world ready. -Make the entry level jobs more attractive with better terms and conditions. -Compensate the experienced pilots enough for them to want to stay on to mentor the newbies.
