oral diarrhea in CX

- US airlines will start hiring soonand many guys in Cathay on waiting list will leave

- I will retire with 55, latest 56. I don't need this anymore

- We will soon order the 8i

- We did order the 8i, mainenance told me

- We need the 380

- The 380 is bad for freight

- Fuel will not become cheaper

- Fuel will become a lot cheaper

- The 777 just doesn't have the capacity we need on the London route

- The quality of the new second officers will sooner or later result in an airframe loss. That is what you get when beancounters run an airline

Our IT department is great.

Removing the salt and pepper increases productivity....Love that one. (Y class to have S and P removed from cutlery set as well, so how does that increase productivity?

Our managers are a real caring bunch.

Safety is our priority.

Oh, the list is endless.

which of course, was preceded by "that's the way we did it on the classic" which was preceded by "that's the way we did it on the Tristar"

Captain A to FO X: "That's the way you have to do it because that's how everyone does it in CX"

Captain B to FO X: "No, that's the way you do it and everyone does it like that in CX"

Captain C to FO X: "Who told you to do it that way?"

...Ad nauseam.

Especially when it's Y0 J15+ F5.

They just want to move their friends up or upgrade Y pax.

I always say NO.

Two weeks ago they downgraded a 'upgraded' Y pax to get me my seat.
Do not let those staff travel idiots run the show.
