That is so but interviews and selection continue. Hiring has been frozen pending CX review. Maybe take a look at KA recruitment for DEFO on A320/330 via PARC Aviation.

Applied for the HK visa and got a very polite e-mail before my interview date that the management has decided to dump my application as "passport" has visa issues when it comes to HK (takes too much time to get a visit visa) which is true but I mentioned the issue clearly in my e-mails to them. They just apologized and that was it.

Trying to get my passport back from the HK embassy now

Your probably better off. Sometimes things are meant to be. You will probably be very thankful in the next year or so.

FO PAY

Does anyone have any info for ACTUAL first year and second year estimated salary? I have been given the "package" but all it states is the average salary at each position. Capt/Fo/TrainingFO etc etc. I am not sure if this is broken English for starting salary.........Or if they are being sneaky with the numbers. Either way the "average FO" is stated to be on a total package of HKD$79000 monthly. Confirm or deny please. Or PM if you prefer.

Jim - it really depends how much you fly. At the moment the FO's are maxing out on hours so the salary is better, but you work for it. If you need details PM me.

JIm, you need a correct perspective on the 'salary' CX quotes you will earn. In HK, a decent apartment will be $25000 hkd /mo, with electricity and rates (tax) on top. You then must deduct salary tax from your earning, then you can enjoy paying $10 usd for a beer. $30 usd for a dinner. Add in the cost of transportation, the cost of staff travel to get home to see your relatives, and all the other costs of life and you basically are living like a junior FO at an Australian regional (or arguably worse off still). CX try to pretend that they offer an 'amazing' package. In fact, it's crap. End of.

This is true. Think cost of living like London, New York, or San Francisco, except there are no suburbs or farther rural areas to escape to.

This A. O. is now in europe, in a spanish airline with Airbus and 717... This is what a friend of mine told me. I don't know how is possible that airlines are not doing a background check... Apparently he is also a trainer

A bit harsh. To some people the current situation in Hong Kong is a "storm in a teacup" compared to their own situations. Even if the deal is lousy compared to the good old days a chance to get a decent rating could be a life/career changing event. I can recall thinking how "stupid" people were by accepting B scale back in the early 1990's, now those conditions are only dreamt about.
