Re: American Airlines, Air Canada and Westjet end COVID-19 seat blocking

Wrong. Research has been done and aircraft cabins are the last place to catch something from other passengers. You have greater chances of catching diseases in a hospital. Why don't you post the source of your information? Show some data that has validated your point. I've checked my sources. Feel ...

Re: Night Rating Anxiety

Focus on task at hand. Aviate, navigate, communicate. Maybe a couple sim flights to get used to the atmosphere?

Re: American Airlines, Air Canada and Westjet end COVID-19 seat blocking

Already discussed here: https://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=22294161#p22294161 IMO, it is completely reckless and irresponsible to sell commercial aircraft cabins to 100% capacity in the midst of a pandemic. Carriers doing this are placing their employees and customers at much greater r...

It’s simple common sense. Blocking middle seats and not selling to capacity means fewer pax on the plane. Fewer people on the plane means fewer chances of catching something!


No. Learn how airflow works in cabins.

Re: The WestJet Thread

Without knowing the inside scoop, you can't make those assumptions. We're being taken care of far bett...

Re: Motormouth MoL - leaving middle seat empty " idiotic "

When you are stuck in a confined tube breathing in recirculated air unable to get away it really doesn’t matter how far apart you are from your fellow passengers. If one of them is sick you are at high risk of being infected. Similar reason as to why things like cruise ships, aircraft carriers, pri...

Re: Westjet Furloughing 1,700 Pilots

Curious as too if WestJet will apply for another CEWS for this round of layoffs as well. I'm not familiar with the collective agreement in regards to recalling the pilots, but if its anything like the company I work for, its quite a time consuming process so if the company needed staff quickly, we'...

Re: Westjet Laying off 1,700 Pilots

Public does not know the full story of WJ employees. Options are far more open and not as decisive as OP makes them sound. You mention pilots, but forget the remaining almost 5000 other employees that have been affected far sooner than pilots...

Re: The WestJet Thread

Thanks. I had heard about the reduced pay/blocking- I thought they were doing a block sharing to avoid layoffs short to mid term. I was wondering how they’d do that with them possibly parking that many airframes. Reduced blocks can only take you so far. Thanks for the info. Good luck to all. Yeah, ...

Classics are great in their market and that's why they're still flying them. 400 is too big.

Re: Another Q400 nose-wheel collapse.

In which case that would be the operator and aircraft's fault. I have a hard time believing this was caused by an errant snow bank as the rest of the photos show the snow is less than four inches deep. Now a pot hole in the runway is certainly possible but I still stick with that part of the final ...
