Jagman, I agree with you about the DHL contracts disgrace, but there are unfortunately other precedents. The 'B' scale decision was purely decided on 'what's in it for me?' The choice was to continue with A scales with no pay rises or increase in conditions for those in the union at the time, or allow the company to introduce 'B' scales. I remember that no-one thought that anyone would take 'B' scales anyway........

The HKAOA, and in fact most airline unions, are really a Captains club, which is a result of the seniority systems we have endured over the years.
