  1. Yes, well, we're all preoccupied. The question is: are we preoccupied with the right thing?
  2. Kinda hard to sit down if ACPA won't return the phone calls, no? How would you arrange a meeting?

    Ahhhh.....the "arguement" spelling was intentional, yah that's the ticket. lol. If you get a chance, look up a book by Antony Flew ( 'Antony' is correct here ) called " How to Think Straight". It's not an easy read but goes quite deep into reasoning and clear thinking. He gives many examples of flawed arguments, the difference between contradictory and contrary etc.

    Why should we listen to you? You can't even spell irresponsible! LOL. That's joke, in case you didn't get it. I agree with you ACguy. I find it particularly annoying when you have made an strong arguement against some point by another poster and then they just walk away. You'll see them posting to a thread above and never get a response to the one below. Too bad we couldn't have some sort of review system, like ebay, to track how many threads a person had abandoned or ended with a slur. seeker
  5. Hi Guys: I always read your postings finding them for the most part to be calmer and more balanced then the usual fare. I have noticed, however, that these postings seem to veer into rather personal areas. I don't mind but I have one request. You see, I don't know Larry. You obviously put a lot of thought into the posting and then make it in the most public of places but haven't included the background to allow me to follow along. I would gently suggest that there are hundreds or thousands of readers of these messages that also don't get it because they don't know Larry either. Perha
  6. flybye, you may want to read that again. GURK was asking what the Westjet employees will do if big bad AC disappears and they find themselves as the high cost operator.
  7. What's the hourly wage for a Westjet baggage handler? ( or should I say the hourly wage of the guy who works for the company that Westjet subs the baggage handling to? ) What's the hourly wage for a Westjet FA? How about for the CSAs?
  8. Just don't bother to respond - he'll go away eventually.
  9. Yup. Wait for the report. Wouldn't matter if it was Chuck Yeager in the back, he still doesn't know what was going on up front.
  10. The Air Canada name will never disappear but the company as we know it sure could. I fly into Saint John, NB and often see a Jetstream 31 with the Pan Am name and logo on the side. When Pan Am went out of business one of their creditors got the legal rights to the name instead of the money owned. I think you and I would agree that this company isn't "Pan Am" even though it says so on the side of the airplane. There is alot of value to the Air Canada brand. If the company was liquidated and CIBC, for example, took ownership of the name and then some Deluce/Friesen/Campling consortium stuc

  12. I checked into this some years back and although I don't remember the details one thing did strike me as funny: they had one fee to take the exam and then another if you wanted them to actually grade it! I guess the thought was that if you didn't think you had done that well you could cut your losses and just have it torn up!
  13. Air Canada Announces Restructuring Timetable MONTREAL, April 22 /CNW Telbec/ - Air Canada announced today the following anticipated timetable to July 31, 2003 in its restructuring plan, further to today's hearing on various CCAA proceedings before Honourable Justice J. Farley in Ontario Superior Court of Justice. The Court recognized that there is much work ahead to achieve the restructuring of Air Canada and prioritized the more pressing matters, such as approval of financing during the restructuring phase. Justice Farley also approved Air Canada's request, supporte
  14. Does anyone have any info about what happened at the hearings today?
  15. Good idea to write Mr. Corcoran, I've already done so thanking him for his balanced story. He's the editor-in-chief of the Financial Post so it may make a difference too. tcorcoran@nationalpost.com

  17. Here is the email I sent and the reply I received from the paper's ombudsman: "Dear Ombudsman: As an Air Canada Jazz employee I demand an immediate retraction of the nonsense published on Tuesday under the title "A memo to Bob Milton". Has The Star finally given up on any hope of actually reporting fact? If you would like to see what a professionally written article should look like go to Mr. Corcoran's article in the National Post. Failing that perhaps you would consider changing the name of your paper to: "The Toronto Star - A satircal look today's news ( not me

  19. Look, it's not up to the unions to try to come up with solutions. Let the management come up with a plan, something realistic, with legs and I'm sure the unions will be onside.
  20. Back up there sport - tell how Mr Milton "botched the merger big time". Seems to me like the unions botched the merger.
  21. Scope, of course! What else would a Jazz pilot want to talk about?
