  1. As everyone can see there is a big rift between the opposing parties. Therefore, the hope of unity is distant at best. The ALPA MEC negotiators in their arrogance promised Delta wages or if arbitrated Air Canada's contract. They were out classed.
  2. Not only were they schooled , they were owned and the company still holds the cards. It was a concessenary contract.
  3. Seems like a classic case of overcontrolling.
  4. WestJet has successfully demonstrated the evacuation and ditching procedures to Transport Canada
  5. I want to see the log book entry and RTS.
  6. Either way it makes the press. Woe is me and the airline screwed up.
  7. Probably for the new to them 737ng for line indoctrination.
  8. Exactly, ALPA sold us out with delusional dreams. What we had was much better.
  9. All you need is the data plate to build an airplane.
  10. I believe it’s $.06 CASM. Aircraft are new, (warranty) and owned, crews are paid below legacy carriers. Ancillary revenue probably close to $100 per pax.
  11. Probably not equipped with GPS.
  12. Book directly with the airline.
  13. Probably at a discounted price.
  14. So buddy wants to sue WestJet. Have at it. The burden of proof is on him to prove that the flight attendant was negligent in his/her job. I’m assuming that MedLink was called and their decision is what we have to go by regardless what any other medical personal says. They assume all responsibility. Malcolm, next time maybe you could give both sides of the story before passing judgment. We all know media networks don’t. Out of my respect for you please keep your Schadenfreude to yourself.
  15. Monday morning quarter backing... two sides to the story. All the more reason to have cabin crew managers.
  16. If the passenger was sitting in the window seat of an emergency exit then it’s a TC requirement that the passenger be awake for take off and landing.
  17. Ok. Yes aircraft can be a dirty environment; however, there is a scheduled cleaning program which mitigates a lot if culumitave dirt and germs. Airlines are public transport and precautions should be taken so as not to touch your face at all when the hands have been in contact with public touch points. Included in not touching your face should be your seldom cleaned cell phone. I’ve see flight attendants picking up their cell phone with the latex gloves on after picking up trash! https://globalnews.ca/news/3671669/cellphone-bacteria-fecal-matter-virus/
  18. Reminds me of the JetsGo days...
  19. Yes there are many in Tech Ops like you, and in my opinion probably one unidentified disgruntled employee making fake news.
  20. One of the biggest causes of fatigue is commuting whether it’s driving or flying and nobody wants to admit it. The other is red eye flying and a 24 hour layover for the return. Of course in my humble opinion. I shortened my commute to 35 minutes by road years ago.
  21. I will be on the CVR and FDR
