  1. 737 MOA is gone, ALL pilots will be paid 55 hours.
  2. I was left wondering if this is the beginning of the "Onex effect". The entire article from the Globe doesn't paint WJ in a very good light. Days and years gone by, WJ had a great read on their audience, the Swoop TP joke is incredibly bad timing imo, at what we hope is the height of the hysteria.
  3. Agree, but it must be said again, the media has spun this completely out of control. Lead story on the CTV Calgary news last night, was how ONE local Costco outlet was out of toilet paper !!!!! They claimed that there is a run on TP because of Covid-19. How any sane person (let alone media outlet) can jump to that conclusion, is mind boggling. Not one confirmed case of Covid-19 in the province of Alberta, and THIS was "Breaking News" What no one in the media will report is how many people have died from the flu (Not Covid-19) this year already ??? This sensationalism is reprehensible. P.S. Second story from CTV last night (maybe 3rd), was how there are some great cruise deals out there right now.
  4. I beg to differ. The aircraft that sat all alone on the ramp near the terminal in YVR for a long time, had the word MAX removed.
  5. Isn't all news seemingly non-researched these days ??
  6. Now that’s impressive, especially the M0.78 part. These winds are usually a pacific phenomenon. Was it smooth ???
  7. WJ has already removed the word "MAX" from their aircraft. Was done very quietly and quite some time ago.
  8. AIP

    WJ Website

    just tried again and voila, all good.
  9. Seems WJ website is having a bit of a bad hair day. Anybody know when it will be back up ???
  10. Most of which is lead by the CBC . . . . . . . .
  11. The phrase "Be Careful What You Wish For" comes to mind.
  12. booking is available once again on the AC website.
  13. Westjet has cargo planes ??? YYZ grows bamboo for shipment west ???
  14. So as expected, it appears everybody will have a say in this matter (including CUPE ?). it was inevitable I guess, once politics got involved. By no means have I read everything on the subject, but I always figured Boeing was going to the woodshed, and also the crews flying the accident aircraft. Boeing has had their day, with more to come. Why has there not been much mention of basic flying skills, and the lowest common denominator effect as I like to call it ??? Perhaps I have missed the discussion ??? My understanding of the Ethiopian accident was that had the pilots simply reduced the power and hence the airspeed, that manual trim would have been possible, and an accident potentially averted ?? Is this too simplistic ??? I understand that the "unreliable airspeed" phenomenon is very distracting and can be difficult, and obviously experience of the FO was minimal at best, but where does pilot training come into this equation ??? I will ask this also, did the aircraft "need" to be grounded ??? Check pilot friend at WJ, says no.
