A heads up from the company

Because of a deficit of about 500 hours in MD speakers in YYZ (this deficit was due in most part to the high number of MD speakers on vacation),

The company had to balance those hours and they will be allocated to YVR

The EZE allowance as they are now are subject to change. Our crew hotel department did not get confirmation regarding EZE in time for pairing release; any change will be part of a revision
