I guess we'll be getting the same lame excuse that someone went home before the the roster had finished uploading. Can almost guarantee that this roster will have been generated yesterday, the 14th, but for reasons only known to C.H, wasn't published then.
Looks like we'll have to wait till the 9-5ers turn up to work tomorrow to be able to plan life next month.
Thanks again :ugh:

No roster, indeed!

I've got the email saying the Aug roster is published, but I can only see the July and June published rosters!

Oh, well. At least the email went out on time...

Same deal. Got the email but no roster in iConnect. Must be due to unexpected traffic on the server. Shame we can order billions of dollars worth of planes but still have the same pathetic IT dept.

Same same... I even tried ringing crew control about it, but got the usual " all our lines are busy " deal, and ended up listening to Robbie Williams singing " not sure I understand.....not sure I understand......not sure i understand..." over and over! There's irony for you!

Why worry about a roster? It isn't worth the paper it's printed on anyway! It'll bear very little resemblence to what you actually end up doing!:*

Actually, I can assure you that the G days on my roster will not change.

I don't understand the point of sending the email when there is nothing on the system..

I reckon someone will apologize tomorrow about it AGAIN...

Glad to work for a company over 60 years of experience!

I remember the days when two things happened on the 26th, you got paid and you got your roster.:ok:

How does the IT department win an award and canít publish a roster on time, unless it is not an IT problem.

Could it be that there are not enough pilots to cover the task at hand and they do not want to go public unit they can conceal the problem? No, not fix the problem but conceal it from the CAD.:D

That is classic, made my day. I used to like that song, now it is like nails on a chalkboard. Bad move to sell the rights to CX on Robbie's part, IMHO. I feel real love every time I talk to the pricks, it is just that I feel it in the wrong place.

Oh well, will just have to "make" my own roster. Works like a charm. :O

Just got email from some obscure department ( maybe they're drawing up our rosters????? )..... Should be out by 2130.
On a funnier note, I couldn't help but laugh at the new "SKYTRAX" joke of an award as I boarded an old regional business class aircraft.

Come on guys, most of you probably don't work the roster you are sent anyway. It's purely hypothetical when published.

Bob

I want my roster, not to find out where i'm going on my days on, but to know which are the days off. And like BC, my G's stay G's, which is how I can plan to do things (gasp) that have nothing to do with CX!,:rolleyes:

Roster is finally out guys!

I don't understand, they do it every month and yet still managed to screw it up...

We the HKAOA give notice to CPA that our pilots will comply with their contracts to the letter until CPA comply with theirs and deliver (via post, email or fax) our pilot rosters for the ensuing month to our pilots, such that they are received at the latest by 1700 hours Hong Kong time on the 15th of every month. Good will may resume once the roster delivery is seen to operate successfully for three consecutive months.

Kind regards...

Once again, this roster was generated on the 14th. Why not just publish the thing then? At least that way, when this latest I.T marvel unfolded, they could have fixed it, and still delivered the thing on time. :=

At various times today I have attempted to use intracx. At the very best after waiting many minutes for the page to load, I got the Flight Crew Home Page, but nothing beyond that was usable (Crew Direct, CFD, ENG ADD listing). Most times I couldn't even login.

Disgraceful.

"My roster has 2 flight request's & 3 GDO requests but I never requested anything for August........"

Don't worry CH et al assure us that their present system is much more efficient than a proper computerised one, so can't possibly be a mistake or human error.

I feel another I.T award coming on!!

It would seem you can win only so many awards. Director IT is leaving us to pursue other interests. These must be pretty interesting "other interests" as he is going in 48 hours!!

I know that is the nature of the IT business, that once you signal your desire to leave, for security reasons it is instant. However, I also know that a less than amicable split is announced using the phrase " pursue other interests" and your desk is cleared for you and your passwords changed and you are escorted off the premises. What has really happened, who knows, however do not forget the old Cathay adage,

"A pat on the back is merely a recce for stab":}
