Now AC has to stick with 345/333/76x for a while. How will AC compete with the others such as AI, AF, or EK in near future?
|Quoting AC777LR (Reply 5):|
It would pose the same problem as the Boeings, excluding the A330.
|Quoting CXYYZ (Reply 8):|
They had planned on operating them, so could someone provide a definitive answer as to whether or not they have an agreement with the pilots to operate them?
|Quoting Sebring (Reply 10):|
As I stated in another thread, the training issue - the problem of introducing a new fleet type - was a key factor in the pilot vote. AC asked the pilots for additional flying for three years while it trained for a big Boeing fleet.
|Quoting Yegbey01 (Reply 4):|
Why wouldn't AC just buy more Airbuses...
A346's and A330s and 350s
|Quoting Lawgman (Reply 14):|
As I just posted in another thread, the Globe and Mail is reporting that this vote was really about original Air Canada pilots indicating their displeasure in how the pilot seniority list was created when Air Canada purchased Canadian Airlines. If the article is correct, it looks like it had nothing to do with wages or training.
