I have read this book and also the follow up. In the end, it was proven in court that Cathay Pacific broke the law and the 49'ers won their case. The 49'ers fought hard and I thank them for that, as now the airline will really have to think carefully before playing that card again. It's purpose was to intimidate and inject fear, and this has definitely has worked.

Also, in the first book John explained that whilst CX offered a shite deal to see if it was accepted, they also had a 'just give the pilots what they want if they say no' deal pre-prepared in the event that it was voted down. Perhaps another lesson for CX pilots.
