Repeat of HOT NEWS. from RAPCAN, just in case someone missed
it.

DUE TO AN AIR CANADA PAYROLLS COMPUTER GLITCH ALL JULY
PENSION CHEQUES WERE ADDRESSED IN ERROR TO THE RETIRED
EMPLOYEE'S SPOUSE. Payrolls is aware of this problem and are
correcting it. The U.S.checks would appear to be
OK..........

Biographies:
Here's  one from Lois North:
I worked with TCA as a passenger agent at YQY and
as a flight attendant based at YUL in the 1950's
before marrying Capt. Ernie North.  In those days
when a woman joined in holy matrimony, she also
joined the ranks of the unemployed. TCA/AC has been
my extended family for nearly 45 years.  My son
Reigh carries on the tradition as a station
attendant at YVR.  Also,my sister was a flight
attendant based in YYC, YVR and YWG in the '60's
and early 70's. I receive both the Rapcan and
Between Yourselves Netletters.

More about our favourite flying machine: Tango Charlie The
Lockheed flew in Ottawa on the 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th of
June.. One day, the 17th, was for Nav Canada who have waived
all charges for use of Nav. aids, flight planning and
landing fees for the summer. Good for them . The remaining
three days was for DREAMS. A total of 149 passengers had a
"flight back into history".

~-=o0o=-~

Did you know ??
The Lockheed was originally equipped with 10 seats. Tango
Tango Charlie has only nine seats. During the re-build in
Winnipeg in 1984/85, nine Boeing 727 seats were installed.
Original seats were not available and, in all probability,
may not have been certified as air worthy under today's
regulations. Now everyone has an isle seat AND a window seat
!!

The aircraft is now in Toronto, ready to fly on the 24th,
25th, 26th and 27th for DREAMS. Flying will be from the
Toronto City Center airport.

Next destination will be Wiarton on the 29th of June. Alan

SLOW ROAD TO WIN 2K BENEFITS
IT managers say that big companies opting for long, phased
migration to Windows 2000 are unlikely to see many benefits
for up to 18 months after its implementation. Features such
as Kerberos security and Active Directory won't be available
until the OS is installed on every desktop and server, so
those taking the slow road to migration will have to wait
awhile before seeing a return on the costs of software,
hardware, training, and deployment. Still, analysts say the
slow, steady pace is the best strategy because the migration
to Windows 2000 will be the largest and most difficult
companies have ever faced. "Plan long and hard," advises
Eric Hemmendinger of the Aberdeen Group. "This is not going
to be fun. This is going to be like an earthquake for a lot
of organizations." Even Microsoft is advising that companies
do the migration in stages, saying they will see
"incremental benefits" such as local encryption
capabilities. (Computerworld 06/14/99)

Dear Mr. Coupethwaite:

Thank you for taking the time to comment on the recent
"BETWEEN YOURSELVES - NetLetter" article.

We do have a process to administer reported incidents and a
few employees have seen their travel privileges removed
completely or the Partner/Family Affair programs suspended
for a period of time as a result of investigations conducted
and depending on the seriousness of the incidents.

However the point we were trying to make in the article is
that, we could avoid a suspension of travel privileges by
educating our Partners on the rules and regulations of the
program.
Regards,     Linda

the above refers to:
Author:  Jim Coupethwaite at SF9UL012
Just some thoughts on the subject of complaints re travel
partners. The rules are there & the partners know the rules,
so just refuse boarding. If anything further develops, pick
up the 'phone & call security. Then you should remove the
employee/retiree travel privilege for a year. Speaking of
travel partner tickets, I wonder how many are sold. I can
imagine it would be a great temptation to some people. That
is not to suggest that it is ever done of course, but ----?
Like I said, just some thoughts.Regards,     Jim

SUMMER READING SUGGESTION:
from RAPCAN  Jun24.
From: Ken Winslow <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>
Subject: THIS IS YOUR CAPTAIN SPEAKING BY CAPTAIN JOHN
WINSLOW

I am a retired Qantas Captain and have written the above
book which is an anthology of humourous incidents on the
ground, in the air and on the radio.
I came to write this book since, probably like Air Canada,
we had many great characters in Qantas over the years and it
was a shame to let their sometimes outrageous escapades and
humour pass with them. Whilst it is mainly dedicated to
Qantas characters, there is a fair amount of humour from
other carriers as well.

It is a paper back book which, having, as many find, no
publishing house was interested, I published myself. And, as
you will well appreciate, most pilots (at least in Qantas)
being tightwads, I have yet to reach 'break even'. So all is
revealed. This is a begging letter to enquire whether you
would be good enough to publish the availability of this
book in your newsletter to members. From sales I have made I
have had rave reviews especially since I sold about 40 copies
at a retired Air Hostesses luncheon and they loved it.

Further details are:- This Is Your Captain Speaking,
authored by Captain John Winslow (Qantas Airways retired)
and cartoon illustrations by leading Sydney cartoonist Mark
Lynch. Airline humour on the ground and in the air.
Ideal gift for friends and colleagues. Gales of laughter for
those in the airline industry, the low down on crews for
those who travel and good light reading for one and all.

Now at the reduced price of Canadian $20.00 including
packing and airmail postage.
Mail orders only please to John Winslow, 64, Denman Parade,
Normanhurst, N.S.W., 2076, Australia. Please make money
orders or drafts out to "Winslow Golf Publications Pty.
Ltd."
(BYN usually do NOT carry ADs for profit but we make
exceptions sometimes,ed vs)

. Smilies.
Still more stories of conversations in a travel agency by
John Hayes.
A business man called and had a question about the
documents he needed in order to fly to China.
After a lengthy discussion about passports, I reminded him
he needed a visa. "Oh no I don't, I've been to China many
times and never had to have one of those." I double checked,
and sure enough, his stay required a visa. When I told him
this he said, "Look, I've been to China 4 times and
every time they have accepted my American Express."

.  That's it for this time, please we need your input, send
comments and email addresses of any others who may be
interested to Vesta with a copy to Terry.
