Two way street regarding jump seats. A while ago I was awarded J1 on a KA flight during Chinese new year, requested as soon as roster came out. Forgot about it as had a confirmed seat pretty much, one week to go J2, by the time the day of the flight I was J4. No seats on other carriers even at full fare. I am not the only one at CX who has received this kind of treatment from KA captains.

At least your request was not answered so you had time to make other plans.

If KA do not refuse or implement a training ban of their own over this you also lose a lot of power WRT implementing a training ban in the future. CX is much bigger with, in the future, far more training capacity than KA. You will never be able to use this as an industrial tool if training just gets shipped over to CX, your 330 fleet seems to be expanding.
