  1. ALPA approached the company to see if their was a willingness on their behalf to raise the OT pay structure to entice folks to work. They replied that their staffing was adequate without needing to increase pay. How’s that working out for u?
  2. I have a hard time believing that. I don’t know the pay structure at either airline, but i just can’t see guys jumping ship, unless it’s FOs taking the left seat over there Time will tell I guess….
  3. Where will they get the crews for all these aircraft who have enough experience? We were hiring new hire FOs with 2500 hours before the slowdown. And unless they up their pay structure significantly, I can’t see experienced crews flocking to their interviews.
  4. A little bit of Queen to start your day perhaps?!
  5. This is second hand information, but… I understand this guy was a bit of a problem child who wanted the summers off so he could do his air show flying, which then led to him booking off on pairings and eventually termination. Sour ? I suspect.
  6. If they all look like Diana…. I for one am also ok with it.
  7. It doesn’t matter to the Bean Counters. John D. Rockefeller was once asked “How much money is enough?” He answered “Just a little bit more.”
  8. Our company (before the pandemic anyway) used to do a BGI-YYZ-YWG as part of a 5day pairing. I would not want to do one of these without someone there with me to catch my “brain farts” and the end of the last leg. And then there is the fact that on day 5 I find that I’m more susceptible to “brain farts”, as I’m somewhat already thinking what I need to on my days off. This single pilot thing smells like a unacceptable risk just to save $. IMHO.
  9. That’s what I was thinking. i would love to see the bill for this little “oops”.
  10. Can u expand on what sort of damage something like this would to to the fuselage vs aluminum pls. I understand that they “bake” the entire section in one piece. So how would a repair be conducted on something like this? thank u
  11. How does a carbon fibre fuselage compare to a aluminum one in this situation? I know there have been some hard landings on the 67 which caused buckling, but which was repairable. How does one of these handle this sort of damage?
  12. I may or may not have lost, and had to replace all sort of wings over the years wich turns out I didn’t loose in the end after all Funny thing about that. ?
  13. This isn’t in anyway a productive comment to make on this thread, But.. Hows that outsourcing everything and everyone to unskilled labour to save money program working out for you Boeing?
