I found this an interesting article (also a few specifics mentioned about the ACPA pilots' deal currently before the membership for their approval):

I love the excuse given by Milton for not flying over to Toronto for the deliberations...

Robert Milton was concerned that it might be tough to get a flight out of Montreal on such short notice.

"You just grounded 40 planes," Winkler told the beleaguered airline boss. "Why don't you take one of those?"


LoL

 Laugh out loud

He ended up taking a business jet to Toronto! I guess the loads in J Class are doing really well from YUL to YYZ Big grin

He could have taken VIA (and scored points with Collenette, LOL) or even gotten a drive...jeez, I had no idea he was that out of touch with reality.

He gets driven in a 2001/2 LS430 to work. I don't think it's in the driver's contract to drive that far. That would exceed his crew rest requirements. Not to mention extra per diem, layover expense, laundry money...
