not sure where you’ve got the 10 years plus as a captain from.
Oasis, unless I am reading this incorrectly, this is what is stated on the Cathay Pacific Airways page on Pilot Career Centre.

"New Hire Second Officer & First Officer Base - Hong Kong only
NOTE: Pilot Bases outside of Hong Kong are grandfathered. All new hires are looking at a Hong Kong basing for 10+ years.
Long-Term Captains and F/O Bases:
Hong Kong, New York JFK, Chicago O'Hare, Los Angeles LAX, San Francisco, Vancouver, Toronto, London, Manchester Frankfurt, Anchorage, Sydney, Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne, and Auckland.

This is how I have interpreted that footnote: my husband, as a new hire and FO, should expect to be based in Hong Kong for an extended period of time. But perhaps he should apply anyway, and, if he makes it to the interview stage, he can see if immediate (or near-future) outport basing is negotiable for his situation.
