You’d be surprised of how many companies will NOT give you those even after many years of loyalty to them.

Before you leave HKE you need to do your work. That is, you need to apply for another Company. Once you are hired, you say goodbye to them. This is how the world has worked since...
It would be better if you apply for your next job while in Hong kong.
HKE is a good place to obtain a type rating for FO that come from props, etc. It's free. Once you get the hours, think again.
It would be better if you do your research, but a good research on why having prepared FO they don't upgrade them, or on how many Captains have left the Company in the last two years, for example or how many Captains are searching for another gig somewhere else.

Interview Question

Wondering what they ask in the interview? Specifically for NTR.. and is there a Compass test or not?

Thanks!

Looks like they are taking NTR individuals for direct entry captain with 3000TT and 1000TPIC or 500 Jet or something along those lines. Kinda like peach but lower TT req. Anybody have any details on the why and how of this opportunity? Regional captain in usa, 3100TT 400TPIC.

With respect, you are so close to a real airline job in the USA. Why would you jump at this bad deal? Pay your dues in the US and get a real job imo...

Guys, what is the upgrade process at HKexpress like? Can anyone share some details?

Upgrade at my company seems to have stalled indefinitely and if it happens it will be on 320 and not widebody, so thinking of jumping ship now.

Is there much difference between Dragon and HKExpress?

Probably similar reasons to yourself. It was a different time when I joined CX. Now I have the shackles of seniority and large financial obligations keeping me at CX. If I could go straight across to another airline without starting at the bottom, I would do it.
