  1. Ridiculous nonsense. Could be worse. Just see Canada’s worst Authority in YWG. They raised the AIF 50%. Guess someone needs to pay the debt on that ugly terminal they built.
  2. This thread ... Let’s be rational for a moment. I’m required to wear a mask - except if I’m eating or drinking. Ok. So we establish that I’m not required to have them on at all times. And since I’m free to eat or drink at anytime during the flight, comparing masks to seatbelts is not relevant to the argument. So now we have established that a mask is not absolute. Save the Transport Canada rule argument as it’s not valid. Many on here are siding with the crew and the airline - fine. I wasn’t there. Nor were you. So he said / she said. I’ve seen video with kids wearing a mask so I
  3. Industry people rally around the company; stick it to the pass traveller the thread cries out. Stop being distracted by that for a minute. WJ uses the fact they were travelling as pass holders as a cover and excuse for the lousy handling of the situation. Blame the traveller. Blame the person who gave them the pass. Then publicly announces that they are cancelling the passes - we will show them the mighty company says. (I don’t know who is running the company now - or the communication strategy - maybe it’s not great because they are “working at home” and all the Netflix is
  4. https://www.google.ca/amp/s/www.cbc.ca/amp/1.5716636 We each have our own definition of “respect”.
  5. Oh. So because they were on passes it gives the Airline an out to treat them like complete crap. Pass travellers have a responsibility to act reasonably - but they certainly do not give up the right to being treated with courtesy and respect. WestJet PR made it a central issue that they were on passes. Now you're excusing WJ. If they were flying upfront - how do you react then? Still zero sympathy? And what about all the other precious guests who were getting mad at the crew - then all ended up spending the night in YYC. Going to blame this family for that too? On wh
  6. WestJet was quick to point out they were travelling on passes - giving them more wiggle room to excuse the company’s horrible handling of the situation. Just a miserable attempt at distraction.
  7. Calgary Herald story has more details https://calgaryherald.com/news/local-news/abuse-harassment-and-outright-disrespect-family-forced-off-westjet-flight-for-not-masking-their-19-month-old/wcm/de764b1b-29d6-4c04-a663-06714258283f/ Good job WJ. Handled flawlessly.
  8. The company sitting on hundred of dollars of money it refuses to refund is doing a bang up job being irrational - threatening customers with bans - over a policy requiring masks that I don’t have to wear if I am drinking or eating.
  9. More rational thinking. Return to the gate over a mask....
  10. Lucky Toronto Calgary next? Then what - the entire network?
  11. I’m not a pilot. But I’m guessing those of you who are could list off dozens of safety and airfield improvements to all the Canadian airports - that you’d each take over a damn waterfall or ridiculous art crap. And maybe I’m not Joe Public. But I’d rather you get what you need vs the nonsense we get now.
  12. So fire lots of pilots. Then try to get them back? If the situation arises where they need pilots, don’t you think ever other airline will be looking for pilots too? Is this really about being an FA is beneath a pilot? Lay-off better than showing people how to buckle a seat belt?
  13. at the risk of infuriating some - let’s be honest - a pilot is a much harder position to replace. The level of training and skills is higher than any FA. So keep as many pilots as possible - if the business grows/returns to “normal” hiring FAs is easy compared to finding pilots.
  14. Right...Because managers are all so stupid and self centred that they can’t objectively evaluate who is productive and who isn’t. Seniority protects the weak and useless at the expense of others and the business.
  15. For $100 a month you’d all still be laid off but those with seniority could move half way across the country to work still. Sign your cards!
