Haven't seen the two Swedish guys from SAS in Hong Kong yet. Are you sure they went to Cathay and not Dragonair, which traditionally has been quite popular with Swedes?
Regarding the SAS pension, then isn't it 60% of final salary for 10 years and then a lot less after that? Although, probably the best deal in Scandinavia, I don't think it quite matches what goes on in the rest of the world. Especially considering that the SAS pay scale is relatively flat and final salary after 30 years is a lot less than comparable airlines.
Tcas etc., I think you guys deserve more!
