Re: Updated: AS employee steals and crashes Q400 at SeaTac

Unless he was on the clock, how about limit people’s access to restricted areas when they’re off the clock? Have their passes only valid to those areas during their shifts. I can't imagine the logistics behind that would be easy. The companies don't issue the airport badges and people pick up and d...

Re: Canada is perfect and never does anything wrong.

I am in British Columbia and here ambulance both air and ground for BC residents covered by MSP is $80 flat fee if transported to hospital. That is the max one will pay. If not transported the fee is $50. Now for non- BC residents not covered by MSP the cost is far higher. $530 flat fee (ground serv...

Re: Arrangements for aircraft parked overnight

Where I work for mainline aircraft we don't have to do anything, for CRJ and E-175 we have to drain the potable water and on one carrier for the 175 we also have to purge the water lines, which is simply going into the aircraft cabin after draining the water and pushing the faucet on the sinks a few...

Re: Walmart Cargo Network

WalMart will utilize air freight for fruits & veggies. Grown in central or South America there is a need to get harvests to US centers as fast as possible. Bananas will not last on a slow ocean freighter. As long as WalMart can get air freight companies to do the job as cheap as an in-house sys...

Re: Ramp Agent jobs

I work the ramp currently for a ground handler. Pay is between 17.50 and 19.50 depending on position. (CAD$) and I also worked many years directly for an airline and while flight benefits were nice the pay was never grand at the carrier I was with. I thought about Air Canada as they are about the on...

Re: Potential new US routes from YYZ and YVR?

I'm surprised that the connections to the south and southeast USA is so poor from YVR. Trying to get to Atlanta or Florida or the Caribbean is a whole day affair and one or frequently two stops. That seems the biggest void for YVR in my view. As I as writing this Delta 1805 is on final after its no...

Re: Video of Hawaiian Employee Chucking Bags Posted on Twitter

On the A320 its not so bad and bags can be slid sometimes but heavy bags don't slide well and the floors are not always in great shape making sliding more difficult. If any...

Re: AS 737s on the SEA - YVR route?

AS currently has 2 737 flights, usually a 800/900 but sometimes a 700. In the next few weeks the RON 737 will be going away and will be replaced with 2 Horizon Q400's spending the night and leaving in the morning as originators. The midday flight will be the only Alaska mainline flight. The midday f...
