It was great year for me, at least I experienced what a real pilot job should be.

Afraid I will be firmly on the ground with dirty fingernails old chap but we turned you around at LGW so may well have previously spoken on the headset.... Good luck!

Sorry to hear that. Hope all you Oasis guys and girls land on your feet after this experience. Having been in the same situation before my thoughts go out to you all.

Mate you can have 20,000hrs but if you're a dic#head no one will hire you.
Pick up your dummy don't forget to rinse it before sticking back in your mouth so no one has to listen to you.

Takes real moral fibre to kick a man down when the chips aren't in your favour doesn't it.

Anyway: Lesson for next investor:

never start a company in Hong Kong with former Cathay people!
What did the X CX employees do to cause the failure of Oasis?

Look at the stupid d running Oasis, he is in Noddy land still.

Get a life pal.

A sad situation but I never cease to be amazed how many people that are meant to be good at math still believe in the tooth fairy.

Even my hamster could work out they were losing HKD1.5m per sortie.

The good Rev no doubt has fewer parishioners these days. He stands to get a lot more in the dollar than his 'friend' Alan Wong of V-Tech as the value of second-hand 400's has held up given delays to the 787 program.

LKS (aka No1 son) is also well covered.

So, as usual, it is the punters that wear the brown smelly stuff.

I would say if CK holding Ltd going to buy Oasis, it will be another story
We probably will see some money invest in the company perhaps both fleets and routes expansion.
