  1. What a load of CBC bs. It used to be ( maybe > 10years ago) that WestJet paid only duty time with 80 hours of flying time scattered within the duty time. Something like $20/hour for 160 hour work month. Report time to gate plus 15 minutes afterwards therefore covering all the extra time. Maybe a 12 hour day and 6 flying hours multi-segment or what ever flying in between report and finish. Minimum guaranteed pay was the schedule as published or better if it went late or if the flight was cancelled. That was no problem until those who did high credit single day pairings flying a 9+ hour day in 12 hours getting paid for the same 3 hour flying and lots of sitting or short flights in a 12 hour day and working maybe 15 to 16 days a month. Sounds like a regular job. So after a proposal and I think a vote of change in the agreement WestJet decided to pay $40 per flight hour, door closed to door open. Now with the single day flyers getting their month done in 8-10 days because they bid that way rocks the boat of those who don’t manage to get those high credit pairings and end up working 16 or so days. Welcome the equalizer... everyone works 16 days and the whining begins that they do work for which there is no compensation. I say to the F/As, bring in CUPE and see what more misery you’ll bring upon yourselves with an expense.

  16. Should have booked with WestJet vacations and skip the middle man. Insurance isn't a bad idea either. The media probably won't post the final outcome.
